I’ve just changed out the old blown bulb for a bright shiny new one and added a photo showing it lit up. eBay won’t allow me to add it as the main photo though, perhaps because there’s been a bid.

I'll keep an eye on it if it remains reasonable considering the description, spare parts may come handy (e.g. when the potentiometer starts scratching etc) ...

Up to you of course but adding Global Shipping to France might make it expensive?

indeed, that's is a good 18 quids extra, which reduces my bid accordingly...

It would only be around £3 cheaper for me to send it directly not sure how I’d be able to bypass GSP though.

if you opted for it I suppose it's a pain to avoid it, that is the way it's engineered and the system makes a huge margin out of GPS. Shipping is outrageously expensive anyway... while it costs about nothing to get stuff from the far east : there's something I must be missing.
