Screw me once shame on your, screw me twice shame on me I had issues with this seller in the near past but because he eventually made good on the deal, although it took threats and a nasty negative feedback thread posted here. I put my trust in him again when he offered me what I believed to be an excellent deal. Here is the link the the for sale thread I am referencing.
After talking with SPLboi about my desire to buy a new HU he offered me this "mint", "BNIB" (his descriptions) Panasonic unit. Since he had finally corrected himself on the last shady deal he made with me I put my trust in this guy again. What a mistake. I have PM him 5 times and he has been on the forum twice since I sent them with no reply back.
The head unit arrived in a priority USPS box with about a handful of packing peanuts for padding. All of the individual pieces of the unit were just banging around inside the box. Below are the many issues with the unit as I recieved it. I have also attached pics.
1) The faceplate was not stored in its case causing it to hit the other pieces inside the poorly packed package. It has sustained rub marks, knicks on the screen and general marks.
2) The trim ring is broken
3) There is no remote with the unit
4) It did not come in the OEM box (advertised as BNIB and mint condition)
5) Case has marks indicating prior installation
Bottom line here boys and girls..................if you buy from this guy you are taking a huge chance. I am two for two and will NEVER buy from him again. I dont care if he offers me 99% off, it is just not worth the trouble and gamble.
