Hi Guys i recently won a bid on flea bay for these:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=4547106610&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&rd=1

judging by the pictures they look great!, but when i got to the sellers place , i found out that the rear seats were SPORT LEATHERS , and the front passenger seat backrest was TWISTED, after seeing 3 sets of recaro,s i know what to look for, and could see that it was obviously bent!, any way the seller tried to tell me that the back seats were recaro ones, and that the front seat will be fine as its only twisted a little!, according to him a fat person must have put there weight on it when entering/exiting the car by holding the side of the seat as support ?????, i didnt have any of it , got a full refund from him, i asked him if the pics on ebay were of the seats, to which he said `No` !!!!, thats great isnt it?, anyway what feedback should i leave and what should i put?

Thanks

an unhappy Zak[:(][:'(]

Bugger Neutral... Give him a negative!!

That's a lot of money to be spending only to find out that it's been misadvertised, it's also a big waste of your time. Wait until he leaves feedback for you then slate him!!! [;)]

There's no excuse for messers like that, i can't stand them! [:mad:]

Slate him down on his feedback, and plus he's going against ebay rules
by not saying what condition that the actual leathers were in.

I'd also leave negative. Yes he has given you a refund but only due to the fact the seats were far from there description.

How about 'Warning!!! Item not as described'

Probably worth letting Ebay know the seller is selling items that are not what he says they are

Sitting on a milk crate!!!, no Ive still got the sport black leathers!, but obviously, well the vast majority of people would agree that Recaro,s are the King when it comes to seats!, so thats what i,m after, ive got two options, either get a set of oem black leather recaro,s or get a retrim done on some cloth recaro,s., a point to note is that the later recaro black leather seats , are made with a much higher quality leather than the early recaro leathers, ive seen two sets now and and see the difference in the leather easily, also the later leathers have the newer airbag connector fitted as well, so no cut and shut on the airbag connector.

Yes definitely!!

And say that you werent going to tell Ebay but after that unneccessary outburst you will!

I got a DVD once of ebay and it was a copy, which wasnt explained in the ad. Plus the quality was poor.

So got a refund and left negative feedback explaining, he then left me positive feedback! But then why shouldnt he?!!

I wouldn't bother taking it any further, you'll only wind yourself up more and not achieve anything. You've left your warning to others with the Neutral Feedback. Have you advised Ebay direct of your misgivings (ie false advertising)? Other than that all you'll do is get into a slanging match with the bloke in Norwich which won't solve anything. Your lucky you got your money back...plenty don't.

Still think you left the wrong feedback.

Fancy him thinking he deserved pos. At the end of the day he tried to sell you good fraudulantly.

mmm, looks like hes relisted the seats, but he still hasnt said that the passenger front seat is twisted[:|], and theyve apparently come from a 53 reg when i was buying them, to a 52 reg on his heading to a 51 reg on the item description!![:O]

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=9889&item=4550526598&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

steer clear of them, unless you know how to fix the passenger seat.

Just asked the seller this question... be interesting to see his response.

Hiya bud, are the pics there the ACTUAL seats you are selling? What happened to the original car they came from? was it a smashed car? If so are the subframes and front seatbacks still unbent and true?

Cheers.

Mark
what a tool.[:mad:]

Just out of interest,

how difficult is it to replace a twisted passenger seat subframe ? Is it an expensive dealer trip ?

BTW, I would of left negative too, ebay has too many idiots, thinking they can get away with murder, it makes life so much more tricky and often unpleasant[:S]
