Grid: eBay Vs New?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
I've found some of the eBay cars feel like they have a little more or a little less grip than the new cars but it seems very hit and miss.

Any one else have a view on this?

So... In Grid, you can buy cars off of eBay?

That's pretty cool.

Ebay cars have less performance depending on their mileage and number of write-off's.

But, their prices represent this.

Yeah. I was surprised the first time I saw the eBay thing. I usually look at the total events won and compare that to the number of times the car was totaled to get an idea of how well it performs.

Now, is it a true online marketplace where you can buy and sell cars with other users around the world?

Possibly, though I'm not sure.

The new cars are always the best IMO. Also, I love how they have $20,000,000 F1 cars on EBAY...

I've been hooked on this game the past couple days...I usually buy new since price is so similar.

But I did find one car..i forget which now but it had 36 wins and 0 totals so i bought that.
