HI. I have recently been digging threw my shop for stuff to sell, and I came across these parts, I know what they are and that they are hard to find ( i believe) but not what to ask? I'm hoping some of you VW heads who have been around a while could help me and give me ballpark prices on what any of this stuff is worth.
Thanks for all your help in my other thread and i appreciate anyone who can help me out!

What I have here is :

Empi VW balljoint front shocks

The NOS glove box pull used to go for $100, but there's one for $60 shipped in the classifieds now that hasn't sold..

What engine is the Empi oil pump cover for, and the DDS motor mount kit?

sent you a couple emails. I saw your ads after I sent the first one, sorry for that. I wold be willing to go $100 for each shock, $200 for the pair, and maybe go $100 on the dds mounts...... I have never paid more than $75-$100 for an og empi shock, and feel that is a fair offer. the dds mounts would be great on a car I am building too, but these offers are far less than your asking on the classifieds for these parts......

the prices on nos empi parts, and or blister packs have come way down..... I have paid $75-$100 for a new old stock empi shock at the vw classic, and you can see most parts, unless they are super rare, have come down a bit in price... I am sitting on a shiat load myself, but will have to wait till the next hay day, for big C's payday!!! Laughing

we have chatted a bit and I think he was misinformed on the actual value of the parts he has. Someone might of told him what some of the parts had made $$$$ wise in the peak of the Empi Glory Hole! Laughing I think those days are over unless the part is super rare. even GT wheels have come down hundreds of dollars..... Twisted Evil

I told him in a PM that he shouldnt go less than 350 for his empi radio

and I told him that the EMPI hayday is long gone, 6 or so years ago he would have gotten these prices. Like the stock market/ housing market everything was prices high and hte bubble finally burst Wink

supply and demand.

for some reason the trend got really popular fast, wasnt enough around and lots of demand. once the demand has been met the prices go way down Wink

Actually, Thornton single handedly killed the market by flooding it with NOS parts. jerk. Thanks for making my collection worth fifty bucks.
