Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

I know the disadvantages of having a WK in Europe and that is that every oil/spare parts are soooooo much more than in the states. Now I discovered an advantage ... so few WK's that you got little bidding competition.

I just got off ebay a pair of brand new 08 HID's for $212 (here) ... will be a great replacement for the pair I got which got substantial damage in the shipment to Kosovo. They work but at that price will just slap in a new set.

Yep, ballasts and bulbs and two year warranty. Let's see if he accepts to ship them out.

Well, if its too good to be true ... probably isn't. Was a scam but felt good while it lasted

I noticed that he resisted immediately same item, same pics, same description. He refused to give additional pictures or to pay via PayPal so I alerted ebay and all his auctions were retracted a couple hours later. Looks like the guy had gotten control of an account no longer in use and was trying pass as a headlights specialist ... selling a lot of em this week but no activity for the past 12 months.

I noticed too that in the last 12 months he had no activity ... still the owner account had positive feedbacks.

Re: How to-2008 OEM Jeep Grand Cherokee HID headlights on an 05-07

I tried to contact some sellers from car-part.com to see if they send items to Europe.

Unfortunately we have to pay for the VAT and Duty taxes . This is a rule for all non-EU trades.

Even if there were it probably would not matter. The problem is that the WK is a rare sight in most parts of Europe. I spoke to the Hungarian dealer and they sold less than 20 since the introduction of the 08 ... all CRD's.
