As an ebay seller I can tell you that it is time consuming to ship items and today shipping costs have gone up since the price of petrol has gone up. Plus they are shipping form Canada so it's even more.

Sure, whatever you say Demon. I can tell you as somebody who ships packages to friends and family as well that $25 is being bent over.

I just sent 3 sets of brake pads, yes, I said THREE sets, to another rennlister via FedEx and it cost me HALF that to send it.

$25 to send a sent of aluminum pedals is not close to reality, even crossing the border.

it's just disguised profits... I focus on all in price of 105 and that is pretty good. I am sure I can arrange a deal with the guy with 'free' shipping... price will just be $105....

perfect. Believe we have about six people now. Would like to go for another day or two and see how many we get. Might be able to knock a couple of extra dollars off... it's worth trying.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Shipping and Handling doesn't make sense on ebay.

Sellers normally play around with the selling price and shipping to manipulate ebay fees, as well as list a lower selling price so that their items sort out at the top if you are searching by price.

When buying on ebay, or anywhere online, always look at the total shipped price.

Oh, what the heck. I'm in too, even given the exorbitant shipping.

Yes, $25 is highway robbery to ship a set of pedals, even from Canada. Yes, ebay S/H is usually close to highway robbery, but this is excessive by even ebay standards.

Yes, the total price of $105 is still a good deal. So, yeah, I'm in too.

P.S Oh yeah, forgot to say - make mine manual too, please.

I'll bet the guys supplier in China could arrange to have all kinds of counterfeit stuff produced that we could buy at less than Genuine Porsche prices. This could benefit the Chinese workers, the Importer probably the most and us as well. Just think, stuff that looks like the real thing and even has the Porsche name for a lot less money.

Sarcasm duly noted Frankly, I don't really care is they say "Porsche" or not, I'd be happy just getting a quality set of aluminum pedals for the price.

Hey, at least they don't say "Poorsha" on them...
