Do you accept COD? My credit card is lost. I realise COD carries additional handling fees.

I don't think I can do COD, but you could send me the money with Western Union, if you like. If you want to do that email me and I'll give you the info you'd need to give them.

Check with the trucking company if they support COD transactions.

With A COD transaction the driver would collect the money and pay you. The shipper and receiver of the goods is more secure in the transaction process. The receiver's risk is greatly reduced.

Western Union or nothing. Vicash is above reproach.

I understand how COD works, but international COD isn't simple.

I'm sorry; I know what a pain it is to lose your credit card. And I understand that you wish to have some buyer protection.

I am holding one scan tool for you, ripplesouth, because you have committed to buying one and because if it weren't out of your control you would have made payment by now. So if you are willing to wait until your card is replaced, you will have a scan tool waiting to be shipped.

That, or Western Union, is all I can do. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.

Cool, glad to hear your not planning this as a final one time only run.

I know you mentioned not liking ebay, but I bet if you put these up on eBay you would sell them like hotcakes!

anyhow... tax return should be here in a week or 2. I have a feeling this thing will help when I finally get my motor back in my car :)

Why would I bother putting them on eBay when I already can reach pretty much every potential customer by just posting on the BBS?

...that would be interested in something like this? Maybe you're right, but I think that almost any Legacy owner who has enough interest in his/her car to be willing to shell out hundreds of dollars to read its ECU would have found Legacy Central by now.

I'll be in for one also in a few weeks. Money is tight at the moment (only one bringing money in while the wife is the full time nursing student).

Because Ebay pays for advertising for a greater market REACH

They use Google Adwords, TV Campaigning, Banner Ads, etc. So your small Seller fees dollars are maximized for ROI. They target-market your buy-it-now ad or auction ad in the same manner as you target market by posting on this BBS except they do it on a massive multi-billion dollar scale.

You might be on the small-minded side if you think that the entire Subaru Legacy Owners world revolves around only this BBS. You might not believe this but there are S. Legacy owners who do not know about this BBS yet.

Yes, but you have to understand it's just him making them. So no reason to get an extremely high deman for something he puts together in his free time (though very limited I would assume).

Holy freaking crap! Absolutely amazing and awesome! Every kid on the block w/a subaru (and even those w/o) will want want one! Definitely on my Xmas list!

And here I was admiring what I assumed was a dash-mounted oil pressure gauge or temp gauge in the 1st pic!

Seriously, I wanted to have a temp sensor dummy light and oil pressure gauge in my car (so much easier to have the dummy light rather that watch my needle all the time), but this is just friggin' awesome!

I would happily learn to solder and layout circuit boards if that's what it takes to have one of the these babies! W/one of these Subaru=Knight rider!

Put me down for 1 as I bow down to the awesomeness of your smartitude! Will paypal you as soon as I get your info.
4 wheel drive, yes! 4" clearance under the chassis, oh no!
