Exide Maxxima's at silly prices?

Postby electricmini » Tue Mar 10, 2009 12:23 am

Hi everyone,

Doing a spot of Googling, I ran across this site:

http://88.208.236.137/order_now/batteries/maxxima-ice-blue/


Looks too good to be true, especially at just 50 quid per battery!
That'd make a brand new pack for the Supra just 1300 quid...

I'm suspicious of this site... no phone numbers, no contact details

Anyone know anything more about it?

I'd dearly love to get these batteries for this sort of price, but I ain't
gonna just enter my credit card details willy nilly....

That price does seem to good to be true. I have e-mailed Exide about the site to see if they can shed any light on it. Will post their reply if and when it comes.

Any website with an IP address for the URL you ought to be rather suspicious of. very often they are dodgy sites.
