============================
Original post:

Ever see stuff for sale here in the classified's that makes you groan?

here's one:
NOS ball joint:
http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=662969

it's a chinese made 555 brand balljoint, the kind that CIP1 used to sell 5 years ago for about 19 bucks. i can think of a few things to call it but NOS isn't one of them.

here's another nugget from the same seller:
http://www.thesamba.com/vw/classifieds/detail.php?id=476852

you have to chuckle ... "easy install mat"

yeah, that's a giant let-down. if the photo matched the description it would be a good score. instead it's just a 68-70 front tin.

$18 is a bit steep, but then again... it's NOS.

Well let's see how it goes... I am not wanting to babysit another sticky * like the other Mad Razz

If some BS comes up... please people... hit the damn report button eh? Confused
Let me make this perfectly clear... this is not WILL NOT be a dumping ground for craiglist/ebay/fleabag site for sale BS....

It is to pertain to samba classifieds and true vendor cheap ass junk parts documented...

Can we all agree on that?

herers an angle- crappy non-german parts have been around so long that they do technically qualify for New Old Stock status. perhaps Ev should create 2 NOS classified categories. one german, one chinese, etc..
