Ebay may have low prices, but the sellers just jack up the shipping costs. So your just paying the same price as most other places. On top of that you don't get the factory warrenty.

No man, Bush tried to say it and said something along the lines of  "Fool me once shame on........... shame on......... You fool me once you cant fool us again" It was quite poetic of the President of The United States. Best place to buy car audio? - Page 4 - Last Post -- posted image.

Ebay is hit or miss, but just like anything else you really need to know what you are doing or you can get took. I have purchased a number of parts off of ebay, but I have been on ebay for something like 5 years, and have a good idea what I am looking for. As far as I have seen, the deals in car audio on ebay are usually dealers trying to clearout last years models. I picked up an eclipse 2212 new for $70 shipped, and then a US amps md2 for $400 shipped. Now of course you can't just go buy US amps over at the local bestbuy, but If you are familiar with the model you know that is sells somewhere around $7-900. Im not saying that it is a good idea to purchase from ebay, but there are honest deals that can be had with caution.

Regardless of the product you buy off eBay, it cheapens the brand name and causes problems for authorized dealers because of the lack of after sales service that the online stores offer. One big + for the local shops is that if there is a legitimate problem with a product that we sell you we send it in for warranty and this is at the cost of the shop, not to you. On some of the product lines that we have, we just give you another unit off the shelf so your not down any time aside from bringing us the damaged product. You will NOT  get this kind of service from an online dealer.

First you have to pay for your own shipping costs and thenyou have to play the waiting game. IF for some reason the courier lost your parcel and you didn't place added insurance on the package, you just lost out on everything. If your lucky enough for the package to arrive to the dealer, it would probably take them a couple of weeks + for them to look at the product and issue you a replacement or if they decide to fix the product, add weeks to this time frame.

Frustrations compound if the courier loses the returned product on it's way back to you in the mail. All in all, bottom line is that when there's a problem with a locally bought product, we're here to back you up ( as long as it's a legitimate claim ).
