I ordered a genuine used GT wheel off Veloces around 2 weeks ago-I specifically asked on the e-bay page that it was genuine-but was sent a new wheel 'at no extra cost'. Needless to say that the new wheel was a made in China replica. So I said that I was only interested in a genuine wheel-which was fine-but they would have to take one off one of their sales cars for this.
I have received the genuine wheel, but they have refused to refund my postage costs of 50 euro for returning the unwanted replica. I paid £150 for the 'genuine' wheel plus £50 postage to Ireland, so I have paid 300 euro or around £285 for one used wheel.
So, if the alloys on the GT you are looking at look in great nick, ask are they genuine as apparently that's where my wheel has come from.
Cowboys Ted, they're a bunch of cowboys!
