    Got owned by classifieds seller

    Hey guys, i wanted some coilovers, and there was a set on the classifieds here, its still on there, the full coilover set for a3 2004 brand new boxed etc. When i rang the chap he said they were fully ajustable fk coilovers, and he just wanted to get rid as he had a new car etc.

    So i paid for them, and after a very slow delivery, they arrivived and they are Raceland Coilovers, only height ajustable, rang the bloke, he answered said he'd call me back and hasnt.. now doesnt answer the phone..

    Your classifieds section should make people post 20 times before selling something to stop tossers like that being on here..

    Not a good start to my ownership of Audi..

    I'm not sure on the drop, i'd expect them to be around 70 to 100mm ? I'd expect they are sub 200 quid coils..

    Sorry to hear about whats happend. As Byzan A4 said PM him the details, he is a mod and hopefully they should be able to do some thing about this.
    May just be best to keep ringing him. Do you have an address?

    how will that stop scams? Someone will just post crap in 20 posts and then?

    Anyway, what year is you car?

    You posted in the 8L forum and you bought some 2004 coilovers, not sure if they will fit even if you got the fk ones.
    ^^ In my opinion

    In all fairness what can the mods actually do. There is no legally binding contract when you advertise on here. Same as anywhere else. All they can do is drop the ad and ban the user.

    No, i understand that, i'd like them to take the post off though, as people could easily contact him, not knowing they've been sold, and he could take 200 notes off them and never send a set out, easy money and all he does is gets another pay as you go simcard. http://audi-sport.net/classifieds/sh...ct/3817/cat/12

    Thats the link.
