Make sure you always check the dealer's rating too. If a lot of people have good things to say about shipping and parts, then you're more than likely safe.

EBay claims they'll stand behind, anything sold on their site. I've bought different items on eBay without any problems. Then I purchased my Notchback, and had to rebuild it from the front to the back. So you might have a fifty fifty shot at what you want to buy. I had to rebuild it, because eBay wouldn't stand bye the trans-action. So be very cautious, and do your homework. Think about this, eBay doesn't have a phone number for customer service. Do the math, I'll never do business with a company that has no phone again, Mike.

Ebay isn't the one selling,they are just the auction service. Pay with Paypal,check seller feedback ratings, shop around there are great deals . Compare shipping costs and use common sense of course.I have sold and bought tons of items on there and have never really had a single problem.
