I had Knee Bar for a 2002 B5.5 that I tried to sale awhile back. When it didn’t sell I decided to give it away to a fellow B5.5 member. I listed it as free and just asked for the shipping cost. After being contacted by someone on the board I shipped It to them via FedEx for a whole $10.81. He told me he would pay for the shipping via PayPal.

It was delivered and I sent several emails regarding the shipping cost over the next week and a half. All emails have been ignored. Not even a “I got it thanks”. (FedEx showed it as being delivered.)

Now, eating $10.81 is not going to kill me. It’s just the point that you do something nice for someone and they treat you this way.

It's the lower part of the dash under the steering wheel. The headlight switch is located on it. The B5.5's added a cubby hole for storage under the steering wheel so some B5 owner's upgrade to the B5.5 knee bar.

I think you should kept the part untill you received the money .
I dont understand you I read the thread , the guy even offered $ 10 plus shipping and you said no , keep your money. juts pay for shipping.

its like you are saying = $10 bucks mean nothing to me just take this part away from me.

Now you are complaining , making the guy look bad here.

The guy probably figured out you dont need the money , so he could send whenever he can. maybe he is away for some reason. maybe he is sick who knows?

Ah, so THATS what a knee bar is. All this time I've been calling it

"The lower dash section below the steering column that you have to take off before you get to the instrument cluster"

:p :lol:

Hey, if the agreement was to pay for shipping, he should have paid for shipping. It's not his business to assume that the seller doesn't need the money. The seller did not want to make any money on it, but it doesn't mean that he should take a loss on shipping costs. He should have been paid for the shipping. Anything less is rude and dishonest.

That aint cool. I guess that's just a lesson learned. There's not much you can do now. In the future, get the $$$ first!!!

Im not saying that Metroman did something wrong. i'm saying that if he was really expecting to receive the $ 10 why he shipped the part without getting paid for shipping first?
Nobody does that.
If the $10 dollars in not the point . I don't know what the point is .could you explain to me?

$10 buck for god's sake , maybe the guy forgot it. maybe the guys was too busy to login to his paypal account and send $10 to him.
I dont think Metroman should start this thread to complain about $10 that he didnt get cause he sent the part whitout getting paid first.
That's just my 2 cents.

i think metroman is in the right. He is posting this becuase it is a warning to all of us not to do something simular. Did he post the person's name who ripped him off... no. so stop pretending like metroman is taking a cheap shot at this guy. Hopefully if he stumbles across this thread he'll realize how much of a cheap skate he is.

I think it was a nice thing you did (to get rid of it for $10) a little :crazy: but shit I would of given you the 10 in a heartbeat! :D Who ever did it is reading this, and we all should now know to get the $$ before we ship and not go on the honor system here. I see you did a good thing and got burned... it's too bad. :thumbdow: Don't believe we are all like that! Every deal I've made on here has been with stand-up people! Sorry though.
