    I know a lot of foreign people and they invariably end up asking why we're so obsessed with WWII and I have to admit I have no answer for it ..
    It was a pretty big deal, in fairness.

    mods please delete this thread .
    Nice OTT reaction there.

    There is haggling/bartering and then there is the traditional "low ball" offer that always seems to offend.

    Your offer may be correct based on the UK market value, but there is a very lucrative high end HiFi market in Germany.

    If you think German prices for British gear are high, check out those from Japanese sellers. They are monstrous.

    Calling Japanese sellers monstrous isn't going to help this thread

    What you originally wrote is just no longer funny in this day and age....
