    Good luck. It's easy, but the biggest issue with ebay are the seller fees. Normally it's a certain percentage of your starting price plus 10% of the final sale price.
    For long time sellers like me - since 1999- they occasionally send you special promotions. In my case 0% of the starting price and €3.00 or €5.00 on the final price.
    I have sold a CMC 312P Berlinetta for €1000.00 three weeks ago. Seller fee was €3.00. Normally, without the promotion it would have been €100.00.
    For all three sales of the past three weeks, which were €2.250.00 I paid €13.00 seller fee instead of €225.00.
    The Paypal fee of 2.49% on the transaction amount remains of course.
    And take good pictures. While my auction was live, there was another CMC 312P Berlinetta for less money and crappy cellphone pictures. Didn't sell.

    Best Regards
    Martin

    You can purchase the decals for around €25.00.
    The trick is applying them properly over the rivets at the doors. And the most exciting part is removal and reapplication of the front Ferrari badge for application of the front hood number.

    Question for the BBR experts:
    The beautiful 1964 Targa Florio GTO was previously issued in a limited run of 200 models in 1/18, #BBR1835. Now I see that the same car is available for preorder as #1835z, also in a limited run of 200. The only difference I can find is that the plaque on the base is now located in a different place - beside the model on BBR 1835z vs. in front of the model as on the first version BBR1835. Are there any other differences between the models? If so, I might purchase the new version, however I can find no other changes. I already have the first version. Thanks for any insight.

    @Dave: BBR makes different runs of their models, so this is maybe the third or fourth run of 50 pieces from a total of 200.
    The only difference between yours and the new model is the base and display, they are a little bigger now.
    The last few years BBR delivers all of their models in bigger display-cases.
    So it is no need for you to buy a new one, it's the same model.

    Unfortunately, the three versions of GTO Targa Florio, Norinder have the same error at the level of the rear ligths...
    I have corrected mine.

    Question for the experts: I have been waiting on the BBR F40 LM to be released. Do you think the Looksmart version is the one to wait for? Thanks.

    I don't know how long you want to wait for the Looksmart version, but the BBR version will be released this month!

    I doubt the looksmart will be better, but the bbr should cost around 350/400 € and the looksmart will set you back around 230€...that's why i'm waiting for the second ! Also i want the blue and yelow Igol version, and i think bbr won't make it.
    If the 488 is anything to go by, the diference between both models will be very small.

    I hold out for Looksmart because I want the early version - but without the pop-up headlights - in plain red.
