Sorry Zip, I feel in this particular instance it was an act of cowardice.

ok then yes. Thank you for finally doing it. But I really have to ask. Why did you think it was a good idea to try to get more out of it, and then to clearly avoid us and not admit to fault earlier? You could have avoided a lot of this ya know?

I have no words.....we saw the texts before, as you claim, you saw this thread. Then you had a change of heart? If this thread was never made. You would have never sent those parts.

No zing.

You, me, or anyone else do not know gravik, how he was raised, what he's been through... any of the factors that would lead him to fuck up. Could it be fear? Yes. Could it have been something else? Yes. Could it have been a combination of things? Yes. But you don't know.

And if you interpret that as to mean we should feel bad for him, or that people should get away with shit, you don't understand what I'm driving at. For all the people that screw others in these transactions... probably 95+ percent of them never get resolved. Very few make it right, and even fewer man up and apologize... even if it WAS fear. That STILL takes balls. And if you don't get that... so be it.

It's just sort of a raw deal when 95 or whatever percent of the people never come back and make it right, let alone apologize, but the rare guy who does, still has to be treated as if he was one of the ones who didn't make it right. That doesn't mean like him, that doesn't mean trust him. I would certainly never buy anything from him. But there is a way to act and think in this life, and a way to make points that don't involve certain behaviors or reactions.

But when he came back it had the worn stock shift knob on (instead of an 03/04 it was shown with) and the in box Mach 1 lip and grille delete was no longer in the car. It took me weeks before I could finally get the lip and grille. I was to the point where I said just leave em in the bushes outside your house and I'll come pick em up lol.

Happy he made it right though, despite the fight he put up lol.
Id like to hear gravik explanation on this one as well. I understand hes cover his ass right now on this injector and boost a pump fiasco, but id like to know if there is a history of shadiness.

Gravik..... did you agree to sell your car, and then run home to remove parts ?

True. But I don't see how scamming people can be justified because of growing up.

I don't think he is trying to justify what happened, just saying that we should back off a bit now that he made it right with op, I think 10 pages of flame is good enough lol

I understand that bit and agree with you there. But I wasn't trying to justify it in any way. There is no justifying. All there can be if someone fucks someone over, is the fucked stay fucked by the fuckee, or the fuckee steps up and makes things right with the fucked, and possibly an apology. Which, for whatever reason drove them to do so, is pretty rare.

Once that happens, it's sort of... it's hard to explain. I'm not saying he doesn't deserve a raft of shit, but he got that. Nor does he deserve to be trusted again, and he made that bed... and only time and him doing the right thing from here on out will have people trusting him in the future.

I'm also not trying to insinuate that you were viciously attacking the buy, btw. I just... maybe it's my age. I try to have a really... impartial perspective to this stuff. It's funny, even as I read the ridiculous insults being hurled at gravik prior to him coming clean, the moronic videos people making about him here and in other threads... I sit here shaking my head. Not because I feel for gravik or because I'm against the dude who got fucked, but because it's SO not the way to handle these things. Think about it for a moment. Say someone fucks someone over on a forum transaction... people are hoping that the fuckee comes around and steps up, right? To my mind, the last thing that will make that happen will be people calling him a stupid cunt, threats (not that there were any here, just saying generally as we see in the interweb world)... usually the only thing that will make someone come around is if they have SOME modicum of morals buried somewhere in their body, and facts and mature pressure. Which by and large Chris Jobe provided.

Imagine if you had a face to face transaction gone bad, and you're trying to convince the dude to do the right thing, but sitting there off to the side is this peanut gallery of (well meaning, granted, I know this) people hollering at the guy "DO THE RIGHT THING FUCK TWAT!! YOUR MOM'S A WHORE!! I'M GOING TO BEAT YOUR FACE WITH A GENERIC GARDEN RAKE, PUSSY! THEN I'M GOING TO RAPE YOUR BEAGLE!!"

... chances are, that's not helping things out. At all. It's just people smelling blood, and too many people.. buy into that.

wow, a lot happen since I last checked this thread.

Good for Gravik for sending the stuff, but the damage is already done. I don't think anybody will buy from you again on forums.

And the next step should be to warn future buyers from Gravik's shady deal here.

I think it takes balls to apologize and admit that you are wrong but not so much to do the right thing. Unless you are narcissistic, you should know that when you tell someone this is what you are buying and then you don't deliver on what you sold, then you are somewhat stealing from someone.

I think it is certainly admirable to step up and go yeah I fucked up and I am making it right and that I deserve everything that comes my way because of the actions I took.

Megabanned? No, but a negative Itrader rating and maybe a couple day ban or pinking would be in order but I think that is a little extreme for someone who stepped up to the plate and corrected his mistake. I honestly don't believe it should have come this far though. He certainly seems to believe that he can get away with not delivering things as stated.

Gravik is young and I hope that eventually as he grows up and matures a little bit he will realize that his word as a man is one of the most powerful things that he has and by doing unscrupulous things you will gain a reputation of being an asshole or a scumbag, and that is never a good thing to have attached to you.

Pretty much. As unsatisfying as it is to have the seller do the right thing, he did step up. I wouldn't buy anything from him in the future, but he did make things right.

Of course if it all goes to shit we know it's back on.
