I just completed a sale with Colin and it was a smooth transaction. Also his price was very reasonable. I would definitely buy from him again.

Bought a few items from Colin recently, and he was very easy to deal with, prompt, and good quality parts as well.

Thanks!

I had a less than positive experience with Colin...I purchased a rear view mirror that the had advertised last spring as NOS...when I pointed out to him he had 2 separate on the Samba claiming both mirrors were NOS when in fact it was the same mirror, he change the ad to " I thought it was NOS..I purchased the mirror last week and when it arrived I noticed the stem had minor pits which he had revealed in the ad...however he failed to mentioned the glass was severely and extensively pitted... he called it slight overspray which could be removed with cleaning..I took the mirror to 2 different glass/mirror shops and they agreed it was badly pitted...and beyond repair...I told Colin I would return the mirror for a refund...he said he doesn't refund but failed to mention that in the ad...he grossly misrepresented the mirror..on a scale of 10 is is more more than a 5 at best!

I recently made my first purchase from Colin and the transaction was excellent, high quality parts at a very reasonable price. I was very happy with my purchase and I will definitely deal with him again. Thanks again.

Buyer beware.

Don't trust this seller to provide merchandise as advertised. I had a less than positive experience when I was shipped one (less than perfect but Hella) indicator lens and the other an aftermarket piece of junk. I tried to resolve the matter but seller just wasted my time by using delay tactics - asking for pictures first, then disapperaing on me for days before coming up with a vague one line response to gain more time. Apparently he knows the loophole that Paypal won't help if it can be proved that the shipment has been made (regardles of the contents).
I have since found the other lens at a swap meet (for a fraction of the cost) and learnt a lesson in the process.

This dude is a scam... he is all full of BS..!! look at the emails below, and you can see that it has been well over a moth the he says he recieved the cash and will send it out..well it never happened! I have been buying and selling from Samba and have never been screwed around like this before.!!! BEWARE OF COLIN

*****************LOOK!!!**********************


dude... your the dick for saying that you were going to ship the part on August 26th! look at the emails below.! If you 'shipped it'... then why do you have to wait to 'get home' to figure it out.??! You know that you didn't ship the part... just admit it.

Dude you need to relax I can't do anything till I get home. Why would I screw you over for a $10 part. How do I know it arrived and you are being a dick.

Well at this point I am defiantly convinced that you DID NOT send that part as you said you did over 2 weeks ago. I sent you CASH in good faith and you stated that YOU received the money. It has been a month to send a simple 10$ part. If I don't ear back from you or get the part by tomorrow, I will be posting some very negative feedback!! I have been buying and selling on the Samba for years and you are the very first person to screw me. You should not be posting ads if you have no intention on providing the product... I guess you prefer stealing.

Also you send the money maybe a month ago but remember it took nearly 2 weeks to get here how long do you think it takes to get back to you with customs.

The way I read those emails:
You sent the money on Aug. 9
He got it 2 weeks later - Aug. 23
Colin said he mailed it on Aug. 26

So it's been 3 weeks since he sent it. I can't remember how long the last thing I got from Canada took but it does take what seems like a ridiculous amount of time. I'd wait at least a month before thinking anything was wrong.

It sounds to me like he was waiting to get home to give you the tracking or customs number(s).

I can verify that I have had letters take 2 weeks or more to get to Canada.

WOW.......Well now he is asking for my address 'to make sure he sent it to the right place'... yeah right!

What a scam...IF he only had ONE of these NOS knobs, how would he have another to send me!!?? He just realized that my bitching and complaining will not go away until he gets the part out (like he should have) This guy needs to be ban from the Samba from selling... it is appaent that he is doing more COLLECTING and NOT enough shipping.

Wow this guy as you guys can see flys off the handle pretty quick. Then he wants his shipping info and I told him I was at the 36 hp challenge in Bonneville (Salt Flats) and wouldn't be able to get it too him till today. As you can see he just didn't quit even when he knew I couldn't do anything till today. Well I don't put up with harassment and told him well you can read it. Anyway he promises to kill the complaint when it does arrive but he doesn't seam the type. Also just to make sure I got the address right I asked what it was but he didn't post the rude comments he made. Anyway thx for the comments Everrett.

By the way the 36 hp challenge was awesome. We (Todd from Saskatoon) took down a single cab and got the record for a type 2. I was in the pit crew very cool.

I will delete the negative feedback when I receive the part. I will do that....

but (IF) I ever get the part, I will post on the feedback you ALL the actual post mark on the shipping just so you can see that he dragged his feet to get the part out- only when he was feeling the heat. We will all see that when it shipped was not really when he said in all the email... This will prove it once ad for all. I am sure once the lies are proven, then we will all know the creditablity of this guy.

I can't wait to gt the part... the suspense is killing me.

Ok now that I am home to be able to check. I didn't get the part out till the 30th. So, I am sorry for the few extra days but no need to go overboard. Anyway hope it shows soon and you can see that I am not here to rip you off for "$10".

Buyer Beware. We would love to see him banned from the Samba but unfortunately its not my decision.

When did the world turn into a bunch of princesses. Hunza man you should relax your going to have a heart attack. I said I would help you but you went off like a 2 year old so I am not your daddy so I left it alone. As for the issue with the bumperette I have 2 very clear pictures and clearly states has shelf wear. When did we need to start hold your guys hands. Grow up and take responsibility for what you bought. As for the 2 ids that's because some stuff is mine and I am selling a buddies stuff under a different id to keep it separate. Wow you would think I invaded a country or something.
