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

-As many pictures as possible of every area

For miscellaneous items, post:

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.

    ProgRama "Cash For Cores" Stay Away

    *Resolved, see last post*

    I recently decided to liquidate most of my cluster parts, which included about 7 good SI boards.

    I decided that I’d just send ProgRama the cores, taking advantage of their ‘Cash for Cores’ offer.

    I sent in seven SI boards and a circuit board at a rate of $75 per SI board and $25 for the circuit board.

    After two weeks of having my boards in house, I decided to email and get an update. I was told that they were still working on them even though they state that a transaction should happen within the two weeks.

    After some back and fourth which included ignoring my requests for explanation on how they quantify deductions for missing batteries, I was told that I would only get $145 back for five cores that were deemed good.

    I asked why the value changed so drastically from what I was quoted, they said they changed their prices. I asked why they wouldn’t honor the quoted price when they wrote up the purchase order, the rep simply told me that hey would give me a better price if I sent them more cores. I refused.

    So, seeing as they completely went back on their website pricing for cores when I initiated the purchase, before they changed their prices, I would say to stay away from ProgRama as far as the ‘cash for cores’ side is concerned.

    I’ve filed a complaint with the BBB in Florida as a result of them not honoring their quoted price and for their deceptive pricing practices. While ProgRama did say that my payment was "in the mail" it is MIA since I filed the complaint.

      It's funny cause, all the people that have previously scammed me (or attempted to) were from Florida (aspeedracer345 from eBay, and others), or New York. They claimed the item was received broken, switched internal parts, or claimed they didn't receive the package altogether. Not saying everyone from these states is a scammer, but a damning coincidence.

        I think you may be onto something.
        West coast ppl. seem to believe in the whole "karma" hippie thing.
        And midwest folk seem interested in long-term business dealings (Blunttech etc).

        Whereas East coast folk just don't GAF about anything long term.

            The owner of ProgRama ended up reaching out to me and personally resolved the issue. While I’m not a huge fan of his employees, he went above and beyond in resolving the whole transaction.

                Isn't that funny.
                Only once you post this thread on a reputable e30 site do they finally decided to make things right.
