BEWARE of Bmwpartssource / Patrick =(

I made 2 orders with Bmwpartssource / Patrick after seeing he was offering a pre-order sale on e46fanatics... 1 for the Jeff koons art car in Jan and the 2nd order another Jeff Koons art car & two #78 lemans cars in early Feb. The first order was fulfilled with no problems. Having earned my trust, I proceeded along with the 2nd order, with a delivery date by end of Feb. Unfortunately, the day passes with no email or anything. I shoot an email to him on 3/3 and 3/7 with no response; I get worried and since I paid via PP; proceeded with filing dispute. Patrick then confirms that shipment got delayed and will arrive no later than 3/30. (he responded sometime mid March) March 30 passes with no word from him so I escalated PP dispute to claim. PP sided in my favor & immediately refunded my $$$ 4/2.

On hindsight, even though this vendor is a sponsor of E46fanatics, I should have researched for past experiences with them & Im kicking myself for tying up my $$$ with this joker for almost 2 months. It was only bc the first transaction went through ok that I proceeded with the second transaction. Poor communication, poor service, just poor experience overall. I was hoping I found a vendor for all of my maintenance needs (I was going to drop $$$ on oem csl brake kit soon...lol) but it looks like I'll be purchasing elsewhere (getbmwparts ftmfw!) If you're reading this Tim/ mods, I think it's a disservice to allow this vendor to continue advertising here & to take advantage of unsuspecting buyers. I understand that a vendor cannot make every single buyer happy, but this case is pretty cut and dry. CAVEAT EMPTOR!!!!!!!!!
