    I'm looking to buy another set of my Ray Ban sunglasses. I've found the exact same spec as the ones I have now and they seem to be genuine but you never know with ebay.

    Would you take the risk and buy them?

    Am I allowed to post a link or is it a competitor?

    Cheers

    If they are genuine, then all is well and good.

    If not, then you risk damage to your eyes. The UV coatings will not be.

    I got some original Raybans on the bay - go for rep and big stores selling lots of them, also if its too cheap to beleive its fake.

    That's the thing though, you will only know once they arrive. The seller has good feedback. I will be able to tell once they arrive.

    He's sold 80 of the same model and has 10 available. The asking price is £75.98. They are a 2008 model.

    I wouldn’t trust them to be real from the bay.

    Personally, I wouldn't. I don't find Ebay to be that good value anymore anyway. Prices often seem close enough to that available in big online retail stores that it's not worth the risk of going through Ebay. A lot of Ebay sellers seem to take advantage, understandably, of the fact that many people just assume that Ebay is the cheapest place for everything and also that people get over-excited and even slightly competitive when bidding.

    Fair point.

    I just don't know where else would sell the exact ones I want. Main sunglasses shops won't as they are an old model.

    Alternatively, does anyone know a good place I could get my existing ones repaired?

    Lidl / ALDI 4.99 polarised sunglasses are the best.

    Lidl sunglasses xD - Well unless different stores have different brands of course.

    The only things worth getting from there that will satisfy are custard creams and fresh veg!

    There are some things that I just wouldn't buy on ebay, and sunglasses are one of them. There are so many fakes it's not worth it.

    Probably becasue you know they are cheap :D

    Because sellers do not lie . . . .

    I would still be wary. If they are old models, then thats why they are on there, if they are too good a price to pass up, then I would be tempted to look elsewhere.
