Ultegra gorup set & ebay?

I am looking to buy an Ultegra 6700 group set and have found one on ebay. The seller is in Hong Kong. How much or should this concern me?

Not at all. Buyers rule on ebay. I have bought a fair number of new parts from Taiwan.

Have you checked the UK sellers like Wiggle, ProBikeKit and Chain Reaction? Their prices may be very competative and their reputations and reliability are extremely good
