Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here's a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the items information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.


If listing a car
-Post the year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it is currently at and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model
-Post as many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. If tires, any gashes, bubbles, cupping and curb rash
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing Parts
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


Miscellaneous items
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    What's the difference between a scalper (such as a person who buys BMW parts on R3V to sell them for $1K more) and a catfish?

    One's a slimy scum-sucking bottom-dwelling scavenger; the other is a fish.

      ^ I really don't think thats fair to say. The seller got what he wanted for them. Its not the current owners fault the seller didn't price them right.

          I agree, it's not his fault. Like anything else, political views, religious, etc. your opinion on where fault lies is going to depend on your point of view.

          1. People should not have asked me to ship. = Their fault
          2. I should not have deviated from my ad about shipping = My fault
          3. Everyone was trying to take advantage of my ignorance on pricing = My fault or their fault depending on your moral point of view.

          At the end of the day, the original buyer will get his money back (PayPal said it will take til next week, shows pending on my end). PRF3CT got a great deal on parts. He should be able to do with them as he sees fit. And lastly I don't have to ship something that I can't even lift at the moment. My back went into spasms swinging the mini sledge trying to remove the control arms.

          And again, before anyone passes judgement on my personal character... which it seems a few are quick to. This is a low dollar transaction that I am not dodging. Nobody came forward and told me what these were worth before learning they were sold. Everyone wanted me to ship, but all tried to low-ball AND get me to ship. I did not sell to the local for a huge amount of money, even after learning what they were worth. The issue was never the money. I just got back from a Dr. appt where it was confirmed I need a microdiskectomy (back surgery) and am scheduled for before the end of the year. Won't find out exactly when until after my pre-op sreening blood tests. I will be doing rehab over the holidays (yay!). So remember, there are much more important things in life, nobody lost anything here, and I am very sorry to the original buyer. Lesson learned.

            Now that I know of your back troubles, I apologize for hitting you with a higher offer to offset shipping inconvenience.

            For a split second awaiting your response, however, it felt like I had asked Emma Watson out for drinks and she was actually considering my proposition.

            Let me tell you, what a real high that was.

              It's all good. I'm sure all anybody saw was the opportunity for drinks with Emma Watson. ;)

              Thanks for understanding, and for the good laugh. Even my wife got a good chuckle out of that. :up:

              Oh, and got a call today from surgeon's office... Thanksgiving will be my last holiday with this piece of shrapnel (not literal shrapnel, it's a broken disk) sitting on my nerve in my lower back. :) Surgery is scheduled for a few days later. Will suck not being able to lift my kids during the Christmas holiday, but at least I can look forward to being able to do more with them in the future.
