If you watch a lot of eBay auto auctions, you will see that almost every 
DEALER selling on eBay will charge a similar fee. They may be just trying to 
sneak in a few extra bucks, but I suspect that they are required by law to 
complete a certain set of papers and submit documents to the state to 
formally transfer ownership. If you buy from a private seller, you sometimes 
find that a car has changed hands three times without being re-registered 
with the state.

I think you can filter the eBay search process to so that it only shows sales 
from private parties and excludes dealers.
