Called me on sunday, asked me if I wanted his sunroof, I said yes, and asked him to send me some pics so that I can see the paint and if its mint like he says, I will buy it, no questions asked. I tell him I will PM him my e-mail later that evening and I do so. One day passes, no reply, I re-PM him, and get this...

Such an asshole thing to do. He could have at least told me he wants to sell it ASAP, doesn't want to deal with pics, and etc, and not tell me he can get me pics, and while I am waiting for them, he just turns around and sells it.

Did you call dibs on it?

i told him i was gonna take it if it was in the condition he claimed it to be. I also said, i can pick it up the next day.

Sorry to say dude but he did not promise he would hold it for you. This is just how these things work, first one with cash takes it. If you see a deal you have to jump on it right away or you will get scooped.

Sorry to say the world does not revolve around you........

Terry don't wait on anyone! If there is a deal on something get in your car and go for a drive..........if it isn't a deal then all you lost was a couple of bucks in gas.

I lost the chance to buy back my wheels ROH from biotek but he sold them before I had a chance to go up.........easy come, easy go.

I was also involved in this deal, I spoke with Peter about the sunroof on the weekend. It's more of a misunderstanding, he says that the roof was never sold to someone else. When he removed it, he noticed it was starting to rot out on the underside (as so many do). This was discussed on the phone yesterday.

Just passing on what I was told, hopefully he will provide some input in the thread.

haha terry, foglights suck 318i rules.

06-16-2005, 09:28 AM
no offence Terry, but there are a lot of people on this board that will leave a seller hanging for a week or two and then say... " oh, I forgot and don't want this... ".

I understand your point of view b/c you are not like that.. however, in Peter's defence... if he did not say that he would wait until you get there to sell it, then how can you blame him as he wants to sell it.. you said that you would take it if it was mint... mint to you and mint to him , or even someone else may be totally different qualities.

just my 2 cents..

well i got a Pm from him telling me it was rotten. So he misrepresented, and lied about a product. Nice going.

06-16-2005, 04:45 PM
^^ yeah thats all good, but did u call dibs on it?

Both Terry and I were just waiting for the panel to be removed and inspected. Either of us would have gone to pick it up, there was a 3-way trade planned.

In any case, the situation is done with.

what does this have to do with anything?

I don't know about you guys but when I sell something, and I have a serious buyer who might need a day or so to make up his mind, I'll ask other potential buyers for their contact info in case the deal doesnt go through. I told callers my e30 was sold for a week because someone gave me their word that they want it, and need a few days to put the money together. Maybe I'm a naive seller, but it also rubs me the wrong way if I call someone, and tell them I definatly want the product, but need to just clear up any questions eg. (will it fit, model numbers etc) and the seller sells it out from under me. Just my two cents....

I have one too, but its black, his was white, I would have avoided having to paint mine.
