i never thought i'd get that much for it

Post by citronut » 23 Feb 2015, 09:22

i had my DIAG 2000 on ebay for £120 buy it now collection in person only,
it had 11 persons watching it
1 question asking how much to send via courier,

bare in mind this was being sold with its trolley and harness tester,

i replied "as this is with its trolley it will probably have to go on a pallet"

no further response from them,

then another ebayer asked if i would accept £100 cash on collection, i had to really think about that for all of 2 seconds :-D :wink: ,

done deal SOLD and collected, its gone to east London

it did make a largish hole in my workshop, but everything around it soon filled that :yikes: :o #-o :-D :lol: :rofl2: :rofl2: :wink:

They are good pieces of kit, its just a shame in a way they went to Diagbox rather than update that. From a personal standpoint I find them more reliable to use than a Diagbox.

I remember we had one originally then we brought two more in 1999 (I think they were about 5K new) , of course the year after they were 'obsolete' apparently. :( hmm as they did not really work too well with plexed stuff.

Good price though.

i have had this on flea bay a couple of times in the past with lots of watchers, but no further interest,

as you can buy a clone DIS-LEXIA for under a £100 squid these days, i thought i was lumbered with this wonderful device,

i know it is a genuine dealer tool which obviously is in its favour,
