• The TDIClub classifieds section is a heavily trafficked section of the forum that encompasses want-to-buy (WTB) and for-sale (FS) threads for the entire world. Due to the demanding nature and fast pace of this section, it is imperative that you know and understand the rules. It is also important to remember that this is the only parts classifieds section.

    Cross-posting and posting classifieds in the regional sections (except the dedicated thread in Ontario) is not permitted.

    Multiple items should be sold in one thread. Make sure to provide a description for all items in your post along with pictures and prices. If you start multiple threads with individual items, they will be locked or combined at the discretion of the moderators.

    Here is a quick outline of the classifieds section rules. If you don't follow these rules, you subject yourself to thread deletion, thread combination, infractions, or posting privilege revocation.

    Thread titles:
    • Put FS or WTB in your thread title. This will let other users know if you are selling or buying.
    • Briefly describe what you are selling. Thread titles have limited space. Be as descriptive, yet succinct, as possible.
    • Put your location in the title.
    • If space allows, put your price in the title

    Title example (single item): "FS: 2004 Mk4/BEW cylinder head - Portland, OR - $500"
    Title example (multiple items): "FS: MK6 fog lights, front bumper, headlights, grill - Detroit, MI"
    Title example (car part-out): "FS: Mk3 Jetta parting out engine & interior - Dallas, TX"

    Thread text descriptions and pictures:
    • All for-sale threads must include pictures of the items that you are selling. One picture is sufficient, but multiple pictures with different angles will help buyers. A picture is worth a thousand words. If you don't know how to post pictures on TDIClub, see this thread: http://forums.tdiclub.com/showthread.php?t=286691
    • All for-sale threads must include a description. We don't charge per-word, so be as descriptive as possible. The more information you can provide, the easier it will be for buyers.
    • All for-sale threads must include a price. Auctions and bidding are not allowed. If you want to auction something off, use eBay.
    No picture, no price, NO SALE!

    Thread maintenance/updates/bumps:
    • When you sell something, update your thread with "SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title.
    • If you have multiple items for sale, update your thread as each item has been sold. When everything has been sold, updated the thread with "ALL ITEMS SOLD!" Moderators will close the thread and update the title when all items have been sold.
    • If you bump your thread, please delete old bumps by clicking on EDIT and then deleting the old bump. This will reduce clutter in your thread and make it easier to read. It also makes you look less desperate.
    • If you drop your price, please update your first post in addition to posting the new price. If you would like the thread title changed, click on the report post icon and let a moderator know what you would like the title changed to.

    Moderator intervention and infraction points:
    Moderators will be monitoring the classifieds section. If a moderator determines that you have not been following the rules listed above, corrections will be made and infraction points will be assessed to your account.

    What is an infraction point? Simple - it's a system of keeping track of user behavior. A moderator can assign a point value based on the severity of the infraction, as well as an expiration date on the points assessed. If you accumulate a certain number of points, the system will auto-ban you for a predefined amount of time. The more points you accumulate, the longer your ban period will be.

    One example of points is as follows: multiple threads will be combined into a single thread, with the number of infraction points assessed corresponding to the number of threads merged. If we merge four threads into one, then you will be assessed four points that expire in 30 days. When you reach five points, the system will auto-ban you for one day.*

    *This is an example based on the current infraction system structure. We reserve the right to modify the infraction system at any time without notice or updates to this announcement.

    Thank you for your cooperation, and good luck with your sales and searches! :)

I did make the mistake of sending it out on promise of a check in the mail. The guy said his car was down and needed the part right away. It wasn't a whole lot of money, but I'm just pissed he never responded.

It was the lower high pressure power steering line- the fancy custom bent one that would be way too much at the dealer I assume. It was from a parts car and I was trying to do a club member a favor. So not only did he get a good deal on one, it seems he got a free one!

He might have ruined it for any future "favors" for other memebers that would have given a better experience.:(

have met him a few times. a bit of a "space cadet"

keep trying to get a hold of him. He probably forgot, honestly.

Did not strike me as a "chew and screw" type.

Best of luck, and thank you doing what you did. really sorry you have yet to get paid.

found him!

Expand all the sections. Print it out. Put a cover page on it "This is the last person that tried to scam TDIClub"

Send it to the address and make it so that he has to sign for it. (Registered mail?).

I'll be damned. He contacted me today. Something about limited internet access. Was someone kind enough to give him a reminder? ;)

Sorry to hear about you non payment. I parted out my 96 wagon and sent most parts out to club members without payment before I shipped. I only had one skip out on me for 15.00. No trouble with 99.999 percent of the people here!

I've got a couple of friends I'll be visiting in about a week that live very close to that address. If necessary we could take a drive by. Not THAT kind of drive by, but my friend is kinda mooselike and likes doing that kind of thing.

Hopefully he's just a flake and will redeem himself by sending the check now that he's finally made contact.

Sorry to hear about it. I have bought a front passenger door from another tdiclub member in december 2006 and never got money back nor door and it was $250. Another tdiclub member bought from that guy six speed swap kit for like $900 and he never got money or parts.

Ok, for this to be a true Doctor_Boost revisit, you need to find his cell phone number, and pictures of his house.

I forgot to mention pics of the wife and kids, too. :eek:

Lol, I have his cell number, address but no one wants to pay him visit. I would but I would cost twice more to get to his house then what he owns me. He is in Buffalo, NY and I'm in Sioux Falls, SD, have to cross country to get to him. If anyone in his area is interested in paying him visit and get money out of him, I'm willing to pay $50, so get $250 out of him and you keep $50 and I get $200.

Oh, nevermind. I thought you were talking about fase.

If people would like to PM me all the information you have, maybe I can make some free time and see what I can do... No guarantees.

If you have his cell phone, have you tried calling it?

And I don't mean just once. Dr. Boost wouldn't answer until about the 30 or 40th (yes, really) call. And I would do them back to back to back. His phone had to have been ringing for the better part of an hour.

A hint: If you press *67 before you make a phone call it will hide the caller ID (try it out on yourself).

Although I think what finally did it was when I found his mom and contacted her asking her about her son's whereabouts and ripping people off.
