How was your wheel buying experience? Priced right? Shipping fee acceptable?

Big Rob in Mathews, NC stiffed me for $237! It's been ~1yr. Some promises to pay but nothing. Even used my name to sell his stuff a few months ago but still never paid me. So fuck him if you get the chance but only do it from a distance. I think he is like 6'5"! Hope to collect at 5erFest when my muscle is present.

Brian,
I received the package, thanks.
I have one complaint, there wasn't any schwag in the box.
Does free shipping mean no schwag? :)

Thanks,
Erik

Todd, I almost had a transaction with "Big Rob", but didn't end up doing it b/c I didn't know him very well and wasn't sure of his reputation. Good thing I didn't!!! Thanks.

S. Haygood.
Excellent experience. Good advice. Great price. Fast shipping.

Duke.
Good price. Fast Shipping. Used merchandise in good shape.

Pumecar.
So far so good. We'll see when the euro stuff gets here.
edit * received the bumpers & valance from Pumecar. Prompt shipping & pieces as described (unfortunately - see thread "Wanted : Cheap,ratty,bent,etc e28 Euro Bumpers" ) (i thought maybe extreme makeover - car edition would step in and replace them with brand new dealer pieces before they arrived here) ;)

I bought a 3rd brake like from TT. After I unwrapped it, I could not get all the packing material back in the box. I think it was magic.

Thanks TT! :p

bought some euro bumpers from bebrowder, it was a really good experience. he sent them fast and even covered a big part of the shipping because it was more expensive than he thought. Which i appreciated greatly!

I just purchased an M5 front spoiler from Roy Wicklund (RoyW). Shipped from Massachussets to Michigan in 2 days, packed well, and everything was included. Great transaction, and I commend his prompt responses via email.

I recieved the vent thingy right when I got home for easter break! It popped right into my empty hole in 10 seconds! It matches the paint PERFECTLY!
Thanks a bunch!!

My experiences in my previous life with buying from BavAuto have been pretty good.

I used to deal with a guy named Paul at Maximillan and it was all good. Then he went away to some other department, IIRC. Last time I bought, they shipped me too much of the wrong stuff- and charged me for it- and then wanted me to pay to send it back for credit. I just kept it and went elsewhere.
