    I recently purchased a back-lit Ferrari sign on Ebay from a seller named "bernieclean" & I wanted to post my experience with this seller for others to be aware of.

    The sign was defective upon receipt. Seller spoke positiviely about replacing it but never took action given mulitple chances. I will not do business with this seller again.

    As for the quality of these signs, the one I received was made of cheap plastic and the fit & finish is as bad as the materials. After seeing the sign, i'd pay no more than around $60.00 for it. Unfortunately the lowest price to date on these is around $240.00 and some have gone for close to $500.00. Ouch!

    Hopefully others had better experiences....

    Regards,
    Rob.

    Thanks for the heads up Rob. Post a link to the auction if you could, so other's can get a sense of what to avoid. Sad to see that their continue to be such shenanigans on eBay.

    Here is the one I bought....unfortunately it looks very nice in the pictures. Well, looks can be deceiving...

    I'm not even certain the pics are representative of what I received. From the pictures it appears to be not very deep. The one I got was around 4.5 inches deep.

    On another note, the weather here in Dallas is beautiful today. Time to go for a drive...

    Regards,

    Interesting. I'm not surprised there are bunches of real Ferrari dealer signs floating around.
