Just bought one of these brand new from the exact same seller for $88 including postage. Will see how it performs.

Reading all the neg reviews it's probably under powered, broken and not what I bought. That's after it arrives late.

My best eBay deal would have to have been a hks super dragger dual exhaust in perfect condition for $40. I also picked up a fujitsubo power getter rs (slightly beaten up)with a brand new 3 inch front pipe, 3 inch cat and stock front pipe for $100, sold the front pipe for $60 effectively cost me $40. Best exhaust for sr ever. Thanks eBay.

With facebook groups on the increase ive found some awesome used deals on ebay for car parts, practically finding deals under peoples noses..

The 1 thing that annoys me is when buying from overseas and i know it might be crap is to read the T&C cause at times they will clearly state they wont pay return fees for the item if you have to send it back, so they send you this item thats fkd.. you now have to send it back to china for example costs you $15 and the item really only set you back $20 to buy.

Paypal has changed there policy heavily, before if an item was shit you would get money back really easily and quickly no questions asked and youd at times keep the crap item, now it must be returned.

depends on the vendor. some dont find it worthwhile to have it returned due to import duties.

our android supplier at work never needs us to send back broken units, they just straight up replace them and we bin the dodgy one.

Update on my purchase and I'm surprisingly happy with what I received. Arrived on time without issue and tested is out pulling apart rear knuckles/brakes with no problems. So much easier and faster then the conventional socket and spanner set I have been using. Great buy for $88

Once I get the right size socket I will be doing the hub nuts and will see how it performs.

there is no way that thing will be doing close to what ever torque you set it at. i see so many guys bringing in these kinds of tools and cheap Chinese hand torque wrenches for calibration and i am yet to see one even close to what its supposed to be putting out.. some are way over and some are way under. some of the digital ones vary so much you would thing there is a blind person inside deciding what torque to apply

i also sell good quality impact sockets if you would like to buy some for your bigger bolts pm me

Another thing thats now pissing me off with ebay is sellers not knowing what they are selling.
In my daily car which is a EP3 you can install a fascia to make it look flush..as per the pic (the darker grey piece around the headunit)

Ive bought 2 from sellers now and both did not fit, they are close but still not like the pic which is perfect..

So i pretty much have to waste time test fitting, then creating an ebay case and waiting for that to clear itself up.. Sure i get something for free in the end but its useless plastc zzzz....

Did my hub nut with no problems at all. Actually quite impressed overall. I can't speak for the accuracy of the torque setting. I simply bought it to make things quicker, sick of using spanners and sockets. I simply max out the torque setting and go for it. All for only $88
