I reckon you will most likely fix the bargain price problem pretty quickly now that you have alerted 11000 coffee fanatics to the auction ::)
Caveat emptor with eBay. I had a client last year who picked up a bargain Giotto Premium which was riddled with scale, had been dropped, was in really bad external condition and required, pump, pump solenoid, control board, wiring loom, pressurestat, safety and anti-vac valves and host of seals and o-rings- just to get it going. Needless that his bargain purchase left him not that far away from the price of a new machine- and it still looked like a train wreck.
As for the Faema, I reckon they run really hot and need tweaking to get the best out of them.
Buy at your own risk
