Wind deflector - caveat emptor
Has anyone got just the vertical section of a 916 wind deflector for sale?
Just bought one from an eBay listing which was listed as:-
"They go for around £260 when new. Easy to fit and just bolts just behind the seats above the seat belts, also folds down in situ. Very straight forward to fit and use and also minimise/ keep the blow back down in your car. It has a hole as you can see on the picture , but could easily be fixed. This in perfect condition part from that.
Happy bidding and feel free to ask questions. Last one sold I. Here fur 180 so grab a bargain, these are becoming vey hard to get ......"
He had shown 2 separate photos - so it looked as though the two pieces were just not bolted together - or at least, that was what I thought.
What the seller didn't say was that he had only got the horizontal part (so much for perfect condition!) . Whilst the frame and fittings are worth something, I wouldn't have paid £50 + £20 postage for half a deflector!!
When I have contacted him, he says that I bought it as listed, so tough sh*t.
I haven't listed the ebay listing number as the guy is a member on here, but if someone compares something to an item which costs £260 new, and lists it as in perfect condition, am I wrong to expect it to be complete?
