    Talking Smoking costs too much!

    Not sure where to put this thread. It's for an Astra, abouts bits from a non Astra, and a bit Chit Chatty too. Move if deemed necessary.

    I've been trying to find a VX220 ciggy lighter for a while. Missed a few on eBay, but was willing to wait.

    I recently saw THIS on (the dreaded) eBay

    Thought i was onto something, as it's got a good chance of being available off the car.

    Contacted the seller and waited.

    Wasn't too worried when i got a reply of No sorry not got one....the search continued.

    Well i had a e-mail from the seller today which amused me.

    hi

    the cig lighter and surround in sliver for the vx 220 in execellent unused condition is £40 including P&P

    thanks


    I can guess what the seller done. Gone to a local VX dealer got the retail price and keeping his fingers crossed i'll say yes.

    He's just about to get this as a reply.

    Thank you for the offer, but.........

    £40! for a second hand VX220 lighter

    The lighter comes in two halves.

    The lighter unit (Part No. 9197026)
    and the red surround (Part No. 919702

    These retail at £21.65 + VAT (£25.44) and £4.52 + VAT (£5.31) a grand total of £30.75

    The last one on eBay went for around £7 delivered.

    So at that price i'll give it a miss. Still looking for one tho.

    Cheers.
    Not impressed. :angry:

    The search continues, but i'll probably end up ordering a new one now (I don't pay retail prices at Vauxhall dealers) as i want it in for Trax.

    Not much, the ring and Ciggy on the lighter glow red! Plus the one in the car is broken/loose.

    IIRC Oddjob has one. Can't find a pic tho.
