Thumbs down Suicide

I was a bit confused by this whole transaction. I was directed to him because i heard he has an engine for sale. so i approached him to see if he would sell the head. Now i have met Noah quite a few times at meets when he used to be a BMW guy, so we are no strangers, i always thought he was a cool kid.

but here is where things get weird. we agree that i can have the head, the price was ok but i was willing to pay whatever because as i described to him i was in desparate need of a head. the terms were that i was to take the engine and separate the block and head myself and return the block to him. he wasnt comfortable with me taking the whole engine so he said he wanted a deposit, i said no problem.. here is the PM chain

is there a phone number i can reach you at?

lemme know asap

now at this point i add him to MSN via the forums because he was slow to check maxbimmer, and i talk to him about this situation we confirm that the last weekend was a good time to do it as he would be working on his car all weekend.

so friday comes.. i call and call
saturday i was at work and i call and call , message on msn with my cell number attached
sunday... call and call
monday... call
tuesday message on msn..
........no response.
wednesday passes
thursday passes and i say **** this...

he flaked on me, and its too bad i thought he was always pretty cool. but he knew i was in a tight bind and needed a head ASAP.

i dont recommend trying to do business with him even though hes not in the BMW scene anymore. Oh and if someone wants that engine i recommend doing a leakdown test on it to see if it will even pass.

Is this the engine he was trying to sell a while ago that needed a rebuild?
