Should I bid on these?

The seller says that something is broken...like a clip:

QUOTE: "NOTICE: The passenger (right) side head lamp has one of the brace clips missing. There are three of the four clips still intact. The clip is mainly used for aligning the lens to the housing. There are also metal pins that hold the lens to the housing as well which is more or less the more reliable piece that functions in securing the lens to the light housing. It is seriously doubtful that the missing clip will affect the performance of the light. The light fixture is very sound as is."

How important is that?

Thanks,
Delmarco

but what is that clip? is it a mounting clip for the projector bulb or is it a mounting clip for the assembly frame...I'm a little confused?

I would say based on the price...that clip is a big deal...I have ZKW's and I think the clip they are talking about would keep the glass lens tightly sealed to the housing...probably important to keep the inside from fogging...however..these lights are over $500 new....so I would imagine the damage is not minor....just an observation

always remember...you get what you pay for on EBAY..... :wink

I wouldnt buy something that is expensive for a reason off ebay for cheap... thats like seeing a dealership selling a 2 day old M5 for 200 bucks... something has got to be wrong with that picture... things just dont happen like that.. thats just the way it is...

there are 2 days left so the price is going to go up even more, and anything above the price that they are at now wouldn't be worth it to me. I wouldn't risk paying money for something that doesn't function correctly, but again this guy has over 2000 transactions with all resulting in positive feedback so its a hard decision.

yeah but looka t what he's selling.,...buddha statues, women golf shoes and head bobbin dolls

I'm sure people in the market for these items are usually very willing to leave positive feedback. I just don't see how this dude would end up selling ZKWs in that line up unless they were stolen and pawned off....

anyone seen any E36 driving without headlights....lately? used
