Default Hurry up and wait....rant

I hate waiting to get parts from Ebay!! I always get soo nervouse, especially when it's more than $100 purchase. I paid for my greddy kit over a week and a half ago and still no show!! I have emailed the guy a few times with no luck and then he finally responds with "Dude, I wrecked my back and have not been able to lift it." Im all for being patient as long as the seller does'nt leave me hangin for over a week with no tracking number or explanation. I think Im just in too big of a hury to get started before it gets too cold to enjoy instaling it.

"dude I wrecked my credit and your helping me pay my credit cards off for free, 'preciate it"

It seems, "oh sorry I've hurt myself" is popular with slow shippers?

I think you got HOSED. If you're lucky, that guy lives within 50 miles of you. Drive to his house, knock on his door with your baseball bat in hand and say, "Does your back still hurt? Well now your face is gonna hurt unless you give me my ******* money." The, "I injured myself" excuse was used so many times in the past, that guy coulda came up with something new at least. "I wrecked my back" actually means "I wrecked my girlfriends car cause I was **** faced when I drove it into a guard rail, so I need to pay for her car to get fixed, so I can't sell you a turbo that I don't own."
Leave it to me to make assumptions....hopefully for your sake, I'm wrong.

You have something like 15 or 30 days to file a complaint. File it now and you can always cancel it. If you purchased it on ebay your guaranteed to get the money back I believe under their new system.

I just checked my email and I got the tracking number!! He even returned $30.00 via paypal with an apology for taking so long to ship. He sure took his time but at least he finally mailed it.

Ouch! I hope you're not right. I'm supposed to get a used AEM WI kit, an RX-8 diff and some other small stuff I bought on ebay. I think the first 2 things are already at Yoram's storage address but now you make me think maybe the boxes are full of bricks!

I think I still have a few days to file a complaint. I hope it gets here in time so I can inspect the kit and make sure everything is OK. I have had some horrible experiences with ebay so I am always reluctant to spend much money there. The seller has over 600 positive feedbacks so Im sure Im just freaking out over nothing.

I got the package in the mail today!! The turbo has no play and feels almost new. All of the pipes are bead rolled and look to be professionally welded. Over all everything looks far better than I expected. My only two complaints are he was slow to ship and he didnt ship the MSD ebc. If it where you guys would you try and mess with the MSD or just go ahead and leave bad feedback?? Oh, one more thing. Does anyone know how much timing the sebring pulls??

**** yeah I'd try to get it. Maybe that's what the $30 was for. He knew he wasn't including it. I'd still file Paypal for incomplete shipment for another $100. Yeah that's too much, but what the hell. $30 on $1000 is only 3%. **** that.

I did a test fit today and ended up with some bad news. The hot side of the FMIC piping will not fit due to the PS and AC. That sucks BC its all really nice stuff but its my daily so I kina want these things. I might sell the whole thing and start from scratch. As for feedback I decided to go ahead and leave it positive. I was just happy all the important stuff, turbo, mani, down pipe, BOV, was in good shape. I did only check two stars for shipping time. Does anyone have any pics of FMIC piping with AC and PS?? This would be most helpful.

GReddy kit doesn't come with an intercooler, these pipes are DIY I assume.
