Hi all,

Does anyone know anything about Marc's BMW parts in Ft. Lauderdale Fl? Or, perhaps have done business with him?

He sells parts on ebay under "marcsbmwparts".

I purchased an item from him 2 weeks ago on ebay. At first he was very responsive, courteous and answered my questions but I still haven't received my item and now I haven't heard back from him.

Perhaps the holidays have delayed shipping but despite that I would've expected it to arrive by today if he shipped it out around the 22nd as he claims.

I have no reason to suspect foul play yet but I am beginning to get worried..

Any experiences or info anyone?

TIA

rs4pro3 is the first listed in the comments section. He posts to the E30 forum on Roadfly... you could ask him.

I would give it a week or so until getting worried.

I usually have things end on the same day or near though so it doesnt take long to ship. I gurantee that it'll be out of my hands by the end of the next business day after payment. Sometimes that can make me run around a lot if people are late paying but my buyers like it...

Itlooks awsome. Id post photos but I dont have any. Im hoping to get a new remote one of these days so I can race. Something about a 10 yearold Airtroics contorler makes it handle kinda funny, If i get over 10 ft away the sterring jumps around.

Here are my r/c goodies:

Left to right: Tmaxx - Associated TC3 (Stratus body) - Trinity Switchblade 12SJ (top) & HPI Nitro Mini (bottom)

*not pictured: HPI RS4 Pro (original), HPI Micro RS4, Associated RC10T (Original)

Here are some pics of my "Pimpin' Mini"

2.jpg

I made that PIMP sticker with indificually cut out letters from a 2 neon MIP stickers.

The raced and abused body

Wow I've got tons of money into this little bugger. I do run with an air cleaner of course, but for some reason I took it off. I have a motorsavers for it.

Blurry picture of the Super Chassis.

Ah yes, my FrankenMini/MiniMT conversion. One of my friends has a picture of my mini at Antioch on a testing day with this suspension on it. It is great fun! HPI Nitro MT suspension arms, axles, and dog bones, HPI Super Nitro wheels and tires, Lunsford Ti turnbuckles and various ball ends to control everything. Oh and HPI RS4 (electric) Rally shocks for the rear which are fronts I think on the rally. Ordinary TC length super shocks can hold the front suspension up well enough.

List of the hopups on the Mini, pretty insane:

MIP CVD's (Front and Rear)

HPI Belted X-Pattern radials (Front and Rear)

Blue(?) Pro molded inserts in the front tires/stock(?) Grey in the rears (softer, like lower air pressure)

Super Shocks (Front and Rear)

2nd Generation suspension arms (they have holes through them for screws to pass through to use with the Super Chassis for droop adjustment)

Ball bearings throughout the whole car

Yellow progressive springs in the front, stock silver in rear

Carbon Graphite bulkheads front and rear. I think the center layshaft holder is CG too.

Some of the belts are heavy duty ones, I forget which though.

Aluminum Steering Knuckles

Hi torque Hi speed Hitec 605BB steering servo

Carbon fiber Upperdeck

3mm 7075 Aluminum Super Chassis

HPI Racer 2 fuel tank (No primer, less prone to air leaks)

GS Fuel Tubing

OS .12 CVR 1hp w/ Slide Carb

HPI Slide carb linkage kit

MIP Stinger tuned pipe (shown with the Frankenmini)

Modified cast engine mounts (-5mm to ~15mm rather than 20mm height for pullstart engines, unfortunately this prevents the stinger from mounting without rubbing anything) = Lower CG

15t clutch bell (pinion gear) Stock 44t Spur

Racing clutch, set on the middle engagement adjustment I think (there are 3)

Light weight non pullstart flywheel

Front Belt Tensioner (Not on it right now)

Center Belt Tensioner

Aluminum HG Y-Brace

Fiber disk brake

Hand-Modified rear shock tower for a more reclined shock position

SO yea ---- It hauls ass! :P

I control all of my cars with a Futaba 3PJ. It totally kicks ass.

I tried buying an M20 from him, went and got it and found out it was way off from what he described and he wanted all the money then even though it was missing parts and I said no and that he'll get the rest when her gets me the parts. Email me if you need more.

my theory is that once the buyer( me) has paid for the item,especially through paypal which is immediate and guaranteed, he(I) deserves positive feedback. I had one guy tell me that he would not post pos. feedback for me as buyer until i posted pos. for him as seller- even though i had not received the item and it was long since paid for. . What is your opinion- i have just bought several items , paid immediately for them as always, and have yet to receive pos. feedback, although i (stupidly)posted pos. for the sellers once i received items as represented. Feedback can be a real touchy area: when you have an unblemished record - you want to protect it. my buddy was "blackmailed" once over his 100 % pos. feedback record by a scumbag( BMW car part buyer- not 2002 though). What is the common opinion on when feedback should be posted , especially for a buyer who uses immediate payment functions?

As a regular EBAY buyer and seller it's been my experience that people wait to see the purchased item before they leave their feedback. As a seller you would hate to give positive feedback just because you got paid. Your buyer could then claim that your correctly discribed item was not up to some imagined standard as they hoped it would be and give you a negative feedback. IMHO I would say that to protect yourself as the seller, the buyer should always leave feedback first. And yes, some buyers and sellers wait until several transactions are completed before going to the feedback page to update things.

his feedback. I usually leave feedback once the item is shipped and he is notified (with tracking number at my expence) that it has shipped. Seems only about %50

of people leave feedback. So far only one person that had sour grapes. Said item was damaged and wanted %50

refund. I said sure, send me a pic. Never did get a pic.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
