An example when speculators and opportunistic greedy vendors of the "Bazaar" jump on the band wagon to make a quick buck.Back in 1998, I sold one of these complete NOS sets, still wrapped up, to a local restorer for $125.00. Kind of wonder if this is my old set. The 02 community has been hijacked. 02 parts are now more expensive than the Porsche parts. Simply ridiculous !

While perusing the latest deals from W&N, I noticed that the price of an item i had purchased from them last year looked a bit high....checked my receipt, and it had more than doubled, up 117%.

I came to the conclusion, in the late '90's, looking at 

Jag prices, that when the price of an item exceeded the

cost of having it made locally, the market topped out.

 

Markets being global now, 'collector' pricing makes less and less sense.

I can buy a 3d printer that can print that size part for far less than

that, now- so I don't think it'll sell.

For $4k, you can still buy a 'driver' 2002 around here.

If I can get that much, the next time I go to a 2002 car show, I’ll be sure to take my screwdriver with me so I can steal all the grilles...better watch out!

for someone that has a very nice 2002 aka show car these are totally worth it as they make the car

 

4k is a drop in the bucket when your 2002 is worth 40-50-60-70-80-90k

 

would i buy these for a 10k beater? no

If you use a RED screwdriver from the tool kit of an E9 you might get mugged while taking the grilles off!
