Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are 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 item's 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 may be worth.


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


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-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. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


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


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For 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 a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on 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.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-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, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

          i purposefully deleted the subject line and emailed right back asking for pics - if you had just sent an email to me, you wouldnt need a refresher on what you have. confident this was a scam attempt:

              I actually know him personally, he makes a living off selling parts. I met him for the first time at a local junk yard believe it or not, and have ran into him MULTIPLE times since then at other local yards. Last time I ran into him he lend me a hand pulling a differential out of a car. I've never bought anything from him personally, but I know local people in the e30 community that have. I have no clue what scam's he's pulled, but as far as I know dealing with him locally seems to work out..

              Edit: Actually I bought my euroweaves from him in 2013 or so come to think of it.

                I buy parts off that guy all the time - never had an issue. Good price, well packaged, fast shipping, package tracking, ect.

                That's just been my experience.

                      I was contacted by both e30PartsGuy and Ben709 regarding a set of late model plastic bumpers. Not sure how to proceed.

                        Guys

                        This "Ben Joshua 709" idiot tried to pass off stock photos of an naturally aspirated ITB setup as a turbo intake manifold. I called BS and he ghosted.

                        Buyers beware.

                          I feel like this is relevant. The spammers are out of control.

                              Firstly, thanks to all for the info here. I'm getting messaged by this E30 Parts Guy as well concerning a 3.73 LSD.

                              Interestingly enough, he provided me with a PayPal account; however, he isn't answering any question regarding how he's going to package the item and told me the diff weighed 100lbs. I found somewhere on the forums that the medium case weighs around 80lbs.

                              On a similar note, He says he's going to take the diff off of his 325is: this is the only car he has listed on his profile.

                              Any thoughts guys?

                              PS. is it a lost cause to be looking for the 3.73 diff? So far I've been contacted by another seedy, very new member who is also allegedly selling a diff that he already has listed as sold in the for sale forum, "slayersden".
