Re: Keotec Zuk/VW swap kit
That's a common misperception. He didn't bid $1 more, it was just the bid amount plus your high bid. It's automatic on Ebay. I regularly buy and sell there, and have "sniped" a good many people. Some people don't like it, but I find it gets rid of people artifically inflating the price by bidding in $1 increments.
For the future, you may want to bid the highest you're willing to pay for it, and bid in the last 30 seconds so noone can "snipe" you, because they don't know your high bid, and therefore cannot keep adding the bid increment until they surpass yours. I have also been sniped, but it doesn't matter because it was over the max amount I was willing to pay for an item.
Sorry you lost out, you should contact the guy that bought it and see if he wants to sell it at a slightly higher price. My older brother did this, and wound up getting the item at a slightly higher price, wasn't bad at all.
