$2000 :shock:

Pretty sure you can get replicas of the plates, and the other bits would be easy enough to find, even if from the UK.

He is for real, and has sold quite a few mini parts at realistic prices in the past.

Anyway, I decided to "Ask Seller a Question" on ebay:

Hi. Just wondering, are you on crack?
Does the $2,000 at least include the
radiator shroud?
