yes, only buy name brand stuff, i wouldnt go anywhere near those knock offs nor put them on a car i use to commute with. There are sometimes good deals on brand named parts new and used, so look for those.
Yea i seen on here somewhere that someone purchased a short shifter from ebay and like 3 month later the weld snaped . I have bought alot of ebay and my suggestion is unless you absolutly know for sure what it is ur getting, ur most likly gonna get the wrong thing.
So yea like its been said b4 stick to name brands, and also check the sellers feedback
I'll agree with what's been posted. Only buy brand name items, buy from sellers with reasonable feedback ratings, and I recommend paying with Paypal (which you pay with a credit card). This will give you the maximum number of options to back you if the deal goes sour and you are stiffed, sent the wrong thing, or you are sent something in a different condition than promised.
There's nothing inherantly wrong with Ebay - but you need to be careful.
