    I watched this pair since it was listed on eBay 271726264387. I wonder if the seller realized that these sell for $300 mint and ready to wear from eyeframesman. I mean did you do your home work? Nope. My best observation is do your homework and research. Dont bid in hast and then realize you gotta spend more money fixing them up. Good info for good members.

    Im guilty of getting caught up in bidding.
    Not so much anymore, but I get the rush of bidding against someone.

    Bidding wars are welcome as a seller, but be cautious not to get caught up as a bidder. Its also entertaining to see items with a bargain buy it now price go to bids that take it well beyond the initial BIN price.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - snipe bidding's the only way to go. Keeps some jerkwad from driving up your current bid; keeps you from overpaying in the heat of the moment.

    And those last few seconds are a bit of a rush... ;)

    I saw that one too. Been watching all the Mars. I kinda feel bad for some of them. Especially those ones with the aftermarket blue lenses.

    Did you guys see the leathers for 775, all 5 pair sold. I'd have liked a pair, but that's a lot... I made an offer, they came back at 675. I couldn't afford it. I'm saving for a flask, so one of these times one comes up, I can pounce haha

    I want the 550 crater but 550 is still a lot imo. Idk. Maybe not though. I'm on the fence.

    wow.... tell you a real story. Found a nice car, can't take my eyes off, bid on yahoo auc in Jap, then can't sleep, went straight pick up from the seller. Use Land Rover defender and I wear Romeo 1 (most of the time).

    The thing is X-Metal is too pretty to think twice. So take the expert advice, slow down people. lol

    I am finally on FB, look for Daisuke Orimoto.

    Thanks everyone.
