Side End Caps BEWARE!!!!!

Just thought i would give you guys a heads up, I purchased Side end caps from "STE" on mg-rover.org for my car. When they did show up 3 weeks after i paid him, i wasn't happy with the quality, and the fact is could even hand them so one side of the car will have shiney ones, and the other dull ones. This is how it went..........

You might find its against the law not to take any action, there are such things are consumer rights.



Thanks for nothing, i'm off to make my own, sure they'll cost less than half what your did.



Mind you a very over price template!

Maybe there not in full view when fitted, but nothing less than the best goes on my car, and these are not!

I think you'll be surprised just how similar they actually are to the originals, the ones I sent work perfectly and are made from a better material than the originals.

I know the amount of time is taking the **** really, but all I can say is sorry really.

Andy


No worries ate, ill send a set out on Monday for you, sorry its taken this long as well.



Cheers

Ste


I've havent got them yet, i dont expect you to send another pair. Can you tell what addy you've got down for me?



cheers bud.


These came today, gotta say mate not impressed, thats a lot of money for a poorly cut out piece bin, or what ever it is you used.



Maybe i'm being picky, but i consider my car to be mint, not sure i want to put these on it. One set is cut out pretty poorly, and the other has measurent marks on them from the inside of the bin....



Andy


Oh and some decent photos of the product which he couldnt supply.










May I add they cost me 25

Would you accept these????

Coincidence that Ste's eBay user name is evilbane?
