    This type of service can't be offered on ebay so offering a single wheelnut gets round the system.

    There us no satnav...just Free advertising.

    If you bid you will get a wheel nut. This is for transport offered not being sold.

    Sounds like the old days when shops tried getting round the Sunday trading laws by selling you an apple/orange/banana for £400 and then giving you a free TV to go with it....

    As other have said its an advert for vehicle transport services:
    "

    Won't make any difference

    They haven't broken ebay rules in their listing.... but then if you do bid you get a wheelnut.

    I wanted a wheelnut after losing one and saw the same listing a while ago.
    The nut was a buy it now....at £10.

    Opened the ad to see why so expensive and the ad itself was for numerous spare parts for a write off car.

    Again, they can't list vehicles in that fashion so the wheelnut was the teaser.

    But why put the description of a satnav in? I know it is buyer beware but the listing verges on the fraudulent.

    Because "pile of scrap" won't get folks looking at their listing......sat nav will.
    Then you will remember they break cars if you need something at a later date.

    Free advertising, except the initial listing fee....which is probably free anyway.
