Well hopefully they read your PM and look into it and take it off. I don't think you did anything wrong.

I have an issue with this. Your for sale thread stated 10,000 miles. There was no mention of missing hardware. If I had bought it from you, I would expect it to be like new.

I wasnt aware it was missing hurst specific screws until the buyer was already installing it. I would have gladly sent him money for them or ordered some for him.

Its obviously working well, and if you expect new, then buy new. Do you find it strange that no pics have been posted??

Yes, pics would help his case. Your argument of if you want like new, buy new is still not a good one. New is new. Slightly used parts in excellent condition would be like new.

All of this and still no pics of said damage on an already installed used shifter. I know if I wasn't happy with it's condition I wouldn't have installed. I would have tried to get my money back.

Seems like a case of buyers remorse for buying a used part that wasn't research well enough by the buyer before purchasing

after asking him a few questions, he admitted the part came on his friend's car, which means it may have been used on any number of cars before that one, he has no idea

you are correct, i feel as though i didnt do enough research as to just how "used" this part was.

Pics? If u felt it was unacceptable, why accept it and then bomb me on here. Not once did you express to me you felt that way.

Why not disclose that you were unaware of its condition or note that it had been beaten with a hammer? Pics have been added to the first post. Doomsjayjesus081 seemed confident he could make the part work, which he did, but the headache was not worth the discounted price over new.
And I did tell you that the part was not up to par, but you're only response was your confusion as to how it could've been installed backwards. In my experience, it is tough to get PayPal on your side in a claim if only disputing a detail, such as how "used" an item is, and I had already waited the 2 weeks it took you to send it, the week that it got held up in the USPS system, and finally finding time with 2 of my car club guys to get this going I did not have the patience to see if you would be understanding enough to take back an item that you were obviously unaware of the condition of.
The intent of this thread was buyer beware, not flame you. Even had I requested the return, an you accepted, I would say you would've deserved a negative feedback based on the nuisance of not shipping in a reasonably quick amount of time and not disclosing important details, just referencing a link that you clearly never checked the parts list of.

I didnt ever notice it being hit with a hammer. Actually the stick was still bolted together until I went to package it for shipping, at that point I took the handle off the shifter assy. I don't think it was in unacceptable condition due to the fact that it is a working piece. It WAS missing screws, for the shifter assy and you let me know that. I do admit, I overlooked that they were hurst specific. 2 screws missing, and it has some wear and tear. Its used, and obviously still getting used. Negative feedback works both ways, you sat on the part for a while, then installed it even though you werent pleased with its appearance. Thats not my fault that YOU did not try to resolve your concerns with me. Yes the shifter has some marks, and dings, nothing in a place where it is seen, and nothing that effects its funtion.

Maybe next time, you should try to communicate with the seller and try to resolve something before complaining. You clearly and admittingly did nothing to try to resolve this prior to posting this thread. Hell, I even had to keep harping for you to post pics before you did.

Thanks for the pics, hope you like the shifter, I'm done here, you'll recieve your feedback shortly as I tried to wait on a moderator and pics before doing so.

The part where the missing screws attach the shifter to my car was warped, due to being hit with a hammer. The "ears" were no longer on a level plane in order to easily line it up properly in my vehicle, which caused much extra time and elbow grease to properly install the shifter. As its a transmission item, cosmetically, condition does not matter. However, when the condition is such that it makes installation more difficult or such that it shows improper installation on a prior vehicle, it makes your item not in typical "used" condition. I contacted you, letting you know I was unhappy before this popped up, but other that warn others of your sketchy selling techniques, I had very little else I was going to do once I had the part installed.
PS: you keep forgetting that I asked if the OEM knob adapter was included, and you sent me the hurst link with an item list PDF showing that the oem knob adapter stick was included, but it was not included.

Stated 10,000 miles, but once grilled about damage, said it came installed on his friends car, so no way of knowing 10k miles

That probably because it was beaten half to death with a tire iron or a wrench, not a hammer. Go look at the pics and tell me you didn't notice all that damage.

You two guys are the only members I can remember seeing with a negative rating... guess the dye is cast. New dye, not used hammered on dye.

This is why you pay with your CC through PayPal, that way if PayPal won't help you you go to your CCC and push for a charge back. Mail the crap back with tracking number, and your golden..

Let Paypal deal with charging back the crappy seller, and they will do it...

Of course it helps if you have a good history with your CCC..
