Stock is Stock and High Performance is High Performance. 40 hp oil cooler is a high performance item? 20 posts listing oil strain covers, filters, gaskets...

Not sure it should be this irritating.. but...

The High Performance category is "Engines" too but general engine parts should probably be in "General".

Report any ads you think are in the wrong category and they will be check out.

These are the ones that I really don't understand. Does this guy pay you for this service? 1800 ads??

Yes, most of the people with that many ads are people who donate.

Circlip... 10 cents...

https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2152028 I am surprised these weren't posted individually.

Two pages of posts... So the best way to find anything is using the search.

I have never donated.. so I really can't complain. But if this 2180 sells, I will throw you a bone. :)

Thanks for the site.

Maybe this belongs in the "whine" forum?:

I don't think the whine forum would be accurate. Just looked at the first page of the "Performance" category and 90 percent is stock and half of that is junk. It just perpetuates the Samba image of the VW hack.

I see a lot of stock type 4 parts, in the performance parts category. Why can't the sellers be notifed to move the ads to the right category?

They can if I know who to contact and/or move the ads.

Hit report in the ad.

It's also Performance/Engine so if they are engine parts, it still might make sense for them to be there.

Edit: I saw you reported a bunch of ads, I did move some stuff around, primarily to the "General" Parts section

Would adding a type 4 performance parts category, help in keeping parts, that can be use for type 4 engines used in other models. Example, type 3 or type 1?

I don't think there's enough ads or interest to justify that as a separate dedicated section

If other people have opinions, please post

My opinion is, the only parts that belong in the High Performance/Engine category, are aftermarket/modified stock parts. Everything else belongs in the general or type 1-4 parts category.

You picked a really good ad there. I do not know a single person who makes that part. I actually put out quite a lot of money to make things like that available. I know you would rather not see them but it's a bit of a service to the community.

Before I showed up these were selling for $6 each: https://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=2062535

I don't know about the other folks but I am always looking for ways to contribute to TheSamba.

Feel free to email me personally and I will try and correct any postings in the wrong category. You can always ignore me and pay $6 for a $1 washer though.
