    DODGEY Very cheap eBay ICE shop

    This place has to be worth a look (Ultima Car Audio) if you're thinking of buying some high end kit.

    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/UltimaCarAu...isplayZ2QQtZkm

    loads of deals on amps and subs, not just your 100 quid specials, there are loads of Phoenix, Orion, Rockford amps on there . I know I'm a bit out of touch with the market but these deals seem very good

    would be nice to know where this shop is based, has anyone had dealings with them???

    They do seem to be cracking deals.....but I have not had any dealings with them or know anyone that has. Also looking at some of the descriptions i.e. 6" widescreen that then says aspect ratio 4:3 and clearly shows a 4:3 screen is a bit worrying, especially from a ICE shop. Another concern is that the items ship from the USA but the seller is UK based and they state "ALL ITEMS ARE DECLARED THE VALUE OF 26GBP SO CUSTOMS WILL NOTHING OR BE VERY LOW." which is a bit worrying if customs cotton on and decideds to whack you for the full amout. Plus how do you insure the package in transit if the value is only £26?

    But then again it might just be my bad eBay experiences speaking as they do have good ratings from customers so could/should be okay.

    Another worrying thing....

    Title: "AUDIO 12W0 12" SUBWOOFERS NEW 2004 1200 WATT PAIR"

    "Continuous Power Handling 125 Watts Continuous Each Sub 300 Watts Max Each Sub
    Max Power Handling: 300 watts per sub 600 watts for both subs"

    A little conflict in info there....

    I didn't look too closely before I posted this up, but I went back for another look, the thing that strikes me as most suspicious is the fact that all the auctions end with in a few minutes of each other :? could they take a whole load of money and run :shock: :?

    I'm not convinced they are in the states as most of the P&P details seem to mention the UK and you could not post a heavy 12" sub from the states for £10 :?

    I'm gonna try and contact them see if they are in this country for collection purposes, if not then avoid I reckon
