1) Yes, you do owe me an apology. I will answer a lot of your questions below, but I do have more maturity than just to attack some one, call them a liar and a thief. All you had to do was ask a question.
2) I am not selling a $50,000 car and would not on this site. If I were selling an expensive item, I would have listed a lot more information and done it locally.
3) You are still being ignorant just assuming that there is something wrong with the car...just because I am parting it out. I am not the one to look like a fool...keep it up with your comments, it's amuzing.
A) It does not take a rocket sceince to know with high end cars or Mercedes, that you will make more money by selling individual parts...instead of as whole. I do have the time and storage. The car is an immaculant newer 99 with low miles and i was not going to let go for under $20,000 with the performance parts, rims, suspension, etc. Well, in todays economy, not too many people would pay that when they can grab a 90-95 with higher miles for half that(10,000).
B) I live in Seattle washington and have already sold half the car on craigslist and ebay.
C) My ebay user is frye68 and a 100% rating and member for over 10 years!!! i have sold about 10 items from the car and everyone, not only gave positive feedback, but got a high quality part for a good price.
D) I don't know Your Benzworld user name for the person who bought my strut mounts two weeks ago, but his name is Neil Fantus. He is even asking for more parts and recommended I list on this site...he is a member and sure you could find him by name.
E) I am sorry some one got taken advantage of, but obviously did not do a good job protecting themselves. I am not asking for wire money or cashiers checks...simply a Paypal transaction THAT DOES PROVIDE FRAUD PROTECTION. Also, if a person could not do local pick up, or a C.O.D., there is always listing on ebay for protection as well...if they requested such of me.
and again, it is small $$ parts...not a car. I am not giving my blood type and childrens name for some $200 part. What in the world are you wanting background searches for a $60.00 pair of speakers, or rear tail lights. A carfax can't help you on that stuff anyway. There is always ways of being protected with third parties...like Ebay or Paypal or local pick up as well.
I am not selling any large items, due to shipping costs. If I do post or get a request for the engine or transmission...it would be local pick up only. A person not only could see the condition before buying, I have records at the local mercedes shop and a driving video with date stamp by newspaper I could show the person.
Right now, I was just trying to avoid some of the Ebay fees and provide some high quality parts for a good price to the Benzworld people.
