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.

    SCAM ALERT: Maxpeedingrods.com

    I am embarrassed to even be writing this, but while unsure if my ICV was the problem (i clean mine seasonally), and probably drinking, I ordered a cheap ICV from Maxpeedingrods for something like $30.

    Do not do this. Upon undoubtedly correct installation, my car idled at 2000RPM. I confirmed with a BMW-only mechanic (who races e30s) and the item is indeed a cheap piece of crap.

    When I tried to return the item, some d-bag offered me a $10 refund only. Is this how ppl do business now? Make something that doesn't work for $0.25 in a sweatshop, sell for $30, hope it's a cheap enough price for it to not be worth returning, but in case someone calls you out, offer $10 and still make an insane profit?

    I told the guy that i would write this, causing generational revenue damage if he didn't refund me in full for the completely bogus and socially reprehensible item -- and he offered me $15. Can you imagine? It takes a week for each response by the way.

    I know i deserve it for not using a BMW part - don't know what i was thinking - but I promised i would write this so here it is.

    Maxpeedingrods represents everything that is wrong with the world.

              I bought my e39 AC fan from them. Doesn't fit too well so the hood flexes on fan blades causing an insy bit of rubbing. It's pretty loud outside the car but I can't hear it because e39s have great sound insulation. So I don't care and the AC blows cold at a stop. Definitely cheap POS parts. But as someone already said, you already knew that.

                  I bought a $30 one on eBay as a crapshoot.
                  It was crap, threw it in the trash., done and done.
                  I do things.

                      Just thought I'd update this thread. My e39 aux fan died after 3 months of use. It has a 2 year warranty, supposedly. We'll see how it goes.
