    I'm not sure if it was the wrong one. Do you have contact info as required in a sale post? If still no response, it's time to warn others about this guy on the Buyer/seller section. And contact paypal even if it's paid as a gift.

    It's good that you got in contact with the seller.
    You already have a bad taste in your mouth about this transaction.

    His parts better be good,or you will go ballistic.
    We will back up ANY member that has been crapped on.

    So this guy does have some real history here correct? People here need to be aware that we have a con man working this forum who knows how to behave like a normal forum member and mk2 enthusiast. He even gives his cell number and will talk you up via text and email like a real auto enthusiast. Embarrassingly he got me. I should have taken more precautions going into that deal as he didn't post pics of the item and he had no real history here. Otherwise every aspect of dealing with him was exactly like every other deal I've had on this board over the last 15 years. He even kept talking to me long after I paid him, when we assumed the parts had gotten stuck in customs. He didn't go radio silent till I informed him that he was going to have to start an insurance claim with the post office to replace the parts.

    Other then that, most everyone here are just real people with lives and tight schedules. Some people just get busy and take awhile to respond, thats pretty normal and to be expected.

    UPDATE TO THE THREAD
    He finally responded to me on Monday and said he had been sick, so his wife was taking care of this for him, his son was pulling the parts and he gave me a tracking # for 2day shipping . I received the parts today like 10 min ago
