Don't buy sh*t from ebay!

DAMN! today I got my fenders (from ebay) painted.. installed them myself.. and guess what!? It doesn't fit like the stock ones... are they supposed to be like this? they shouldn't be I think.. I got these from ebay for $200 (all in all) and I know I got freakin ripped off!!! I should've spent couple more bucks for the non-ebay ones

Also, my friend bought the lambor door hinges from ebay... and one of the shocks broke after 2 weeks of using it everyday!! so like I said DO NOT BUY SH*T FROM EBAY... because they're all sh*tty!!! I should have known better though... I just thought I'd share some thoughts...

No, Ebay is MY best friend! He's right. I've purchased a lot of things on Ebay. Make sure you read the feedback and item descriptions carefully and you're set!

Feedback

Dont just look at their feedback rating--look to see what the person usually sells. A person who has a 100% rating selling Clothes probably isn't the best person to be buying Car Parts from. (Not saying this was the situation in your case but its something you should consider as well).

eBay has saved me thousands.

if you buy non stock stuff then don't complain about it not fitting right. obviously its not stock so it won't be perfect. As for the lambo doors, i bought mine from JT auto and my shocks blew out in a week from using it only a couple of times. Sometimes you just get a bad shock, luckily i had a year warranty though. Good luck about your fenders all in all

well, I guess I'll just try to ignore it eventhough it bothers me coz I paid almost $400 just for the paint.... I will agree, ebay is my friend too lol... thats where I bought my headlights/taillights/eyelids/dash trim and other stuff.. when I just bought some major ones like these ones... I wasn't lucky I guess... I'll stick with this and put my side skirts back on!
