$335 for a brake fluid cap!

When you sale one or two of these RARE ? caps a month things are looking pretty good. I think I will keep the three that I bought for $25 a piece until they actually become rare. I wonder what they will go for then. ?

I hope that KR owners aren't the ones buying these. I haven't checked but I wouldn't be surprised if SPP will still sale them to owners for the original price.

It is crazy but you have to pay to play if you are late to the game .... I do think that they should be offered first to KR owners, as all model specific items should but it's not up to me.

 

 

On the Super Snake side, these three auctions got crazy!!

 

Over $1500 for just three of the under hood caps..............

All I can say is Wow, Wow and Wow!!

 

It makes an owner wonder if they should keep a closer eye on their car at a car show???

 

Two more oil fill caps..............Crazy!!

Larry - I agree, this stuff should have been kept for owner replacements, as was originally stated, but all of that has changed and it is now a big $$$ maker on eBay.

That's just nuts.

Hell, I tried to buy the SS caps from SPP....and they told me they had none!!!! (this was a couple years back, and that was when I was already an owner)

 

I noticed your expensive refs are from a couple months back. I waited, just picked up a PS SS cap for $60ish, and the washer SS cap for $41!!

The prices are all over the place, I have seen the SS and KR caps sell for much less also. Did you see the Super Snake fuse box cover (Large for the earlier cars to mid-2008) with a few small scratches sell for $700 in August? Unbelievable!

 

They had a dedicated person in place to deal with the parts needs of the SS and KR owners, I wonder if she is still there? or if her position has been eliminated?

It's no wonder SAI told us to keep an eye on the caps at the Auto Shows when we helped out.... Now I just may keep my hood shut at cruises for fear of losing what I have.....

When I contacted Shelby in March of 2013, it was hard enough to purchase floor mats from them as a registered KR owner.

 

At the time they limited me to purchasing two sets and said I would have to wait a year before I could purchase any more- and that was for floor mats, lol. I was told they had "limited quantities" remaining.

 

Now the floor mats have been plastered on eBay and their website for quite some time now at a dramatic cut in price compared to what I paid for them in 2013.

 

How times have changed...

You should check out SGT prices for GT caps, strut bars, battery hold down clamps etc. They are crazy as well. The KR hoods are next! I wish I had bought a few of the FR brake duct kits when they were under $150 on Ebay.
