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