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.

-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.

    SCAMMER ALERT!!! Machalla1 and martin calvin

    So as some might search I am in the market for a clean JDM E30 MTech. I was contacted by (Machalla1) off of R3v who actually wanted to initially buy a set of smoked HELLAS I have. He said he lives in France and ultimately said he couldn't make the purchase due to shipping fees. Ok so that was a month ago...

    He then contacted me saying he has a friend that owns an MTech car. So I I contacted his friend ( goes by martin calvin) who kept writing very vague and 1 line responses to my emails. By now not only was I getting annoyed by the lack of intrest or email etiquette this guy was showing but also wondering if I was being suckered. So I wrote 2 emails just asking for him to send me some pics and tell me about the car.

    He ultimately sent me 3 pics of what looks like a 325i with a fake MTech bodykit. So, I called him out on it, he disappeared in the wind.

    I should add I've seen the same car up for sale on another obscure car sale sight, just can't remember.

    The reason I called him out was because I'm almost 100% certain it was not a JDM or EDM MTech. I have owned 2 318is, 325is, 325i and just recently a JDM MTech. I knew what to look for and Calvin seemed to just play games.

    I'm writing this post because I don't want these 2 guys to trick someone into a bad purchase...just isn't right. I can forward my email conversation if it will help in any way. The jackals are out...So you guys just be careful.

    They both tried to scam me on a 3.73 lsd. Did the same 1-2 line responses and pushed using Venmo to purchase it. Dicks.


      Ok good so atleast we kinda are starting to know theyre game. Would love to punch them in the throat hard! I'm glad they didn't get away with your transaction.
