i recently bought a Remus backbox off ebay. it was cheap, though delivery was expensive because it came from the UK to Australia. overall, it was a good price, but not cheap enough to 'return' if there's an issue.
unfortunately, the single picture in the ad did not highlight what i think are 'dents' due to damage. as if squashed or dropped. it is otherwise brand new, never fitted or used, and was sold by a retailer clearing old stock.
i have subsequently questioned the Seller, and the reply was:
"The "dents" are intentional from the manufacturer designed to make sure it fits around parts of the body. When you have fitted it you will see we are correct."
WTF? so my question to you guys - who own or have fitted one - is this correct? i've never seen such a thing, nor really imagine it is 'intentional'?! but hey, if you can reassure me, no probs!
here are pics.

*dent #2 (beginning of 'can' near entry pipe): http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL97/.../324717694.jpg
thanks for looking, and thanks for any feedback.
(btw: i haven't even bought a 155 yet, so this was a premature purchase in anticipation!)
