Ebay Parts & Mods

Quick question.

Do you guys trust parts and mods of EBAY such as...

xenon lights
Cold Air Intake
Lambo kits
mod chips
etc...

I mean they got some pretty cheap stuff that seems to be ok just not sure, LOL i gues i have trust issues when it comes to my money, but then again who doesnt. I would really appreciate any input from ppl who have bought "celica/toyota parts" off ebay.

xenon lights - Some have had good experience, others haven't. So it's 50/50.

Cold Air Intake - Same as xenon lights

Lambo kits - I don't know of anyone who has bought one.

mod chips - POS

I buy most parts off of ebay!! mod chips wont work. lambo kits i havent seen anyone with them. lights and Intakes sure. jsut have to be careful but ebay is not as bad as people think smile jsut becasue you dont buy it from the name brand company, doesnt mean its going to be any less. esp if ur getting the same product but jsut a different seller for cheaper. I say go for it. thumbsup thumbsup

xenon lights - buy from sellers who have great feedback ratings and offer lifetime warranties.

Cold Air Intake - make sure that the Intake can fit and work in a celica.

Lambo kits - I don't know of anyone who has bought one.

mod chips - POS, the only mod chips that i know that work are for my playstation. but i doubt they sell mod chips for any game console nowadays. grin

I havent had any good experiences with lights off there. I have had to buy 3 complete sets already now and each time from a differnt seller and each seller has had the life warrenty. but there warrenty is BS because you have to mail them the burned out bulb plus like $6 bucks to mail a new one back and when all is added up its just a few bucks short of a new set. I dont trust ebay anymore. for bulbs

cant say ive done that before... ahh crap

i bought almost all my mods for my celi off ebay... i think the quality just depends on the seller... just check the feedback and how many items they've actually sold and it should be fine...

except for the mod chips... i don't think i would ever put one of those on my car...

I got my CAI from Ebay and I never had any CEL or anything so far, I installed it 2 weeks ago though... But yeah, check out if it fits and especially if there's a damn hole for that 02 sensor !!! Some don't lol. Mine fitted but, let's say I had to ''customize'' and move some things around, wasn't so bad though. I have to say it was only 20 bucks.. and the filter quality is crap so I'm changing it already, really only spent the money for the piping !

If you're talking about those 4$ mod chips, they're nothing more than resistors you can get for 25 cents that fucks up you're ecu/sensor fuel/air mix. They only work above certain temperatures and can get your engine pretty hot. I don't exactly know the Ohm on those resistors though or how to connect that stuff...

I love Ebay parts!!! I got my Intrax 1.6 Lowering Springs for $99, my KYB AGX Adjustable shock/strut set for $324, my TRD Sport Sway Bar set for $179, my ADR Battle EXE 17" wheels for $300, and my Goodridge Stainless Steel Brake Lines for $59. No problems with any of my eBay purchases.
