NEGATIVE for 84 Fila June 30, 2007, 12:07:21 PM Fila, heres a couple notes that may help your next sale adventure- callin someone names and tellin them how they should be buildin thier own car are not usually good ways to convince someone to agree with you.- repeatedly stating that youre "not tryin to be a dick," doesnt mean you arent acting like one.- lies, lack of communication, and avoidance are not good seller tactics.for everyone else, this is how my deal with Fila has gone down. i requested a full lock set w/keys from the car that Fila was parting out. after being put off in the thread w/o sufficient explanation, i contacted him thru IMs to find out what the problem was. i was told that the locks were too much of a PITA to remove and that i was ignorant for wanting to put used locks in my car.personally i thought $25 for 30mins worth of work would be a good deal for him, especially considering he was already out there workin on the car. so after explainin my position on the locks, why i wanted what i wanted, and how to remove the locks, a deal was finally agreed upon. against my better judgment i decided to go ahead and continue workin with him.so far, ive tried to keep the workings of the deal between Fila and myself, but Brian is workin with Fila on the car. Fila continually pulls Brian into the middle. after several "tomorrow" promises for pics of locks that are pulled, Fila has now been avoiding my PMs. the last PM i sent to him, got a reply back from Brian. as it sits right now, Brian states that the lock set is not complete(door cylinders missing), but that he has the ignition and trunk cylinders sittin there with the glove box handle. i jus got an IM from Fila stating that the lockset is complete, but the ignition and trunk cylinders are not pulled from the larger components(steering column and trunk lid). complete opposite accounts on the status of the locks.....today when i asked Fila for a workin time frame to get the locks all together and get some pics, the reply was "next time i go to Brians," and "maybe this weekend, i dunno." all the while i watch him peddle other parts of the car on the board that havent been claimed by anyone yet. what about the parts that HAVE been claimed??im not layin ANY of the blame on Brian, i have only included him in this post to fill in the gaps. the car was Filas purchase to part out. the thread i replied to and the deal i set up were both with Fila. at this point, im not sure if i will ever get the locks at all since ive been informed the shell is already gone, let alone ever be satisfied with the way this deal has worked out. im not sayin no one should ever buy anything from Fila ever again either, he is only 18 afterall. at 18yo i was very self centered and everyone else in the world came second to what was important for me as well. you can be assured, however, i will think twice before i ever do.
