I wanted a set of remotes for the Bonne, and I saw a set of new ones. I wanted them both , and didn't want to pay any more than 50. At the end, it got close to 50, and I learned there were at least 2 others trying to be a Mad Sniper like me, and were bidding too much at the last 10 minutes...lmao...

I quickly open the main "refreshing" page, and I open 3 others with bids ready to go...in the amounts of 50.01... 51.51..... and 52.55 As it turns out, I would have lost the auction if I had used a service with the 50.00 bid amount. My internet is fast, and I can refresh the e-bay pages in 2-3 seconds, so, I can safely bid 5 seconds before it ends, and I gotcha... The added penny, or nickel is a good tactic too. If you bid 50.00, and I bid 50.01....I get the high bid... This is the remotes: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...RK%3AMEWN%3AIT

I also sniped the bonne in my feedback , but the guy and I agreed that he wanted more for the car, and I was going to spend too much to get it to me...

I'm glad that all worked out, because I found the one I have now, in maryland, which turned out to be only about a thousand miles, round trip.

I sniped my Caprice last year...I wanted to bid 3200, but at the end, I suspected another guy who was bidding, was going to bid 3200, so, I quickly added 6 cents to my bid. That car was 5 hours away from here, and when I got there, we re-negotiated, and I paid 2600.

I can relate to that. I am alot like that also but I am pretty forward in person too. I guess it could be cuz I'm such a bitch and damn proud of it.....I've worked hard for that title and ain't noone gonna take it from me.

whew now like an hour later the seller emails me to tell me the high bidder
backed out and I can have the car for my price.
to bad sucker
Yes, that happens to us quite often...primarily on snowmobile and car parts/accessories....the ****'* bid last minute with a 0 feedback name, realize nobody had entered a higher max bid, then realize they screwed themselves. We never accept second chance offers from these dinks.
