    Not for a 95, but I'm watching it.

    Check out shipping. Does it really cost $7.50 to ship a book?

    One that is that thick, yes. UPS minimum these days for ground shipment is close to $6. If you do the mail, and want to get proof of delivery and tracking, it is about that same.

    Rogue,

    The EBAY manual is an original printing, yours is a re-print of the same thing. Reprints have a slightly different cover and are generally thicker than "first editions". They contain exactly the same information so I have assumed that the paper stock of the reprints is thicker. It seems to be when you have them side by side.

    Christo is right. Shipping is getting expensive, isn't it Tom?
    To UPS a set of rotors and pads ground is around 20 to 25 bucks. Make it a 2nd day and it jumps to around 75 :ugh: .That,BTW, is a "hard cost" there is no "handling" fluff in there.
    Dan.

    I can get a new, un-greased copy for you :G A 94 lists for about 95 bucks.

    eBay is like a basketball game. Nothing happens until the last 2 minutes.

    The difference is on ebay two minutes is really two minutes. I just bid what I think stuff is worth right off the bat and let it go more times than not.
