    All Sebchips 50.

    Hi,

    Cars are 15 years old+. There's a bloke selling them all on ebay for 29.99. I can't be bothered to be Q&A and tech support to aid his business. Will sell up what I have then close them down.

    Cheers

    James

    The ebay ones; its one guy who I think was using a different login before Turbonoz I think now DynoTune_uk they are all copies. He's reselling all the chips and other cars too. I noticed he'd sold 5 in the past two weeks. One of them was a chip I'd recommended recently to someone. Ive not ordered any chips off Silvio for a year or so yet there is still a market for them. The problem is we as humans take the path of least resistance e.g. the cheapest option. Not much I can do about that I'm afraid. It's a matter of principle for me. Silvio let me set the price and I was the only person selling them for him. Yeah other companies are faceless but Silvio is a person and I think he's hit on hard times (the websites are gone) and this isn't really fair. People are essentially just taking money from Silvio

    I know i am at least one of the people you have recommended to recently.

    I can assure you i wouldn't buy anything like that off ebay over an approved "dealer". Or at least someone with a good reputation for that product, i.e. you.

    Sorry i haven't got back to you with regard to your pm. Not 100% what i am doing at the moment. Don't know whether to just build to finished spec and then get it mapped or run on SEB? basic setup to iron out problems?

    Hi, It wasn't necessarily aimed at you I've spoke to quite a few people lately. It's a fairly easy loop: What do I need? Onto Ebay. Done.

    It's a shame really.

    I was always under the impression that the eBay ones were poor copies?

    That's a big shame, really is. Doy...

    So why would anyone buy it for 50 if its 29.99 ?

    The problem comes, though, when people keep buying copies instead of the original and the original company can't afford to develop any more products, and may not even cover they're original development costs. Doesn't take a genius to work it out.
