I'm hoping to get a one piece in a couple months. So I started doing my "homework" I'm seeing a lot of problems people have had with a certain ebay seller. Are there any other places to avoid? Or any places that you guys would suggest? I don't want to get a front end that is a piece of crap, and I also don't want to pay for one and not get it.
I have nothing against used, but I live in the middle of nowhere and you just don't see that kind of thing for sale around here.
Where would you guys get one?

I think shipping could a problem for you. Most of the places won't ship them.

Since you dont need one right away, I would check Craigslist and forums for people selling a used one in your area. Also put the word out that you are looking for one at the bug shops in your area. When I was looking it was going to cost me $300 just for shipping so I started looking around. Within 2 weeks I found one that between the cost of the front end and gas for the 3hr round trip was still less than the cost of a new front end alone, nevermind the additional shipping cost.

thanks FL, I will definitely be watching craigslist and forums and such. Unfortunately that kind of thing is very unpopular around here. So far this season, in all my running around , I've seen 5 air cooled vw's, a ghia, a convertible beetle, a thing, a bus, and mine.
and sadly no bug shops around here. used to be one about an hour from here, but they only deal with water cooled now.
