Earlier this week I spotted a set of original Toyota Carina wind deflectors for sale in an auction:
They are interesting for me as these deflectors change the airflow around the windows and if you open your windows only an inch the air will be sucked from your car instead of having a big turbulence creating a racket of noise.
The deflectors weren’t entirely new and one of the rear deflectors even had a part missing:
I placed a bid of 2000 yen (about 18 US dollars) on it (and some additional stuff that the guy had for sale) and expecting to get it for a decent price. Last night at 2:00AM I lost the auction to two sniper bidders who were bidding against each other. Can you guess what the price ended up at?
Probably in a year or so I will regret not outbidding but for now I think the auction is overpriced…
At least I was lucky enough to win a bid on the scruffy and incomplete mudflaps (I own a set of the rear ones) and unfortunately I have been over bid on a Cruise Computer (4000 yen at this moment of writing) that he was selling.
