Personally I never do the auctions. It's a hassle. Check the box for BUY IT NOW only. Success.
Personally, the auctions don't bother me at all. Especially the no reserve ones. I try not to get myself in a situation where I need a part right this second so I shop around and look for items that I know I will need down the road and sometimes the no reserve auctions can go pretty damn cheap.

That's kinda harsh. I reserve the abuse for political talk chats.
I just never knew they were sold used. Those things aren't the most reliable things in the world I can't fathom buying one with unknown miles on it.

I am not sure on how good of an idea it would be either but most sellers tend to list the mileage of the donor car.

I would buy one used and I am sure he won't again. We have all made mistakes. The trick is to not repeat them.

Same place got me on a camshaft position sensor a few years ago. I thought I was buying a BMW part, but when I got it the thing was obviously an aftermarket cheapo part, which is a big no-no on the CPS. I called the guy and he was basically a total jerk. Wouldn't refund my money and said the part was tested working so what did it matter. I told him I didn't get what I meant to buy and had barely taken the thing out of the box, much less used it, so why couldn't I return it?

After going back and forth for a while (I couldn't believe a return would be this difficult in this day and age) he said I could return it but was a total ass about it, like he was doing me some huge favor. I just kept it because it was so cheap, but I learned the guy (I assume he was the owner?) was a total asshole and I'd never do business with them again.
I believe the Point here is the buyer did not Receive the item that was described by Bmrparts. Second the unsatisfied buyer received a bad customer service experience, after all Bmrparts says "Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed. 1-800-726-2149". Whether or not the item was used or new is irrelevant, in such a case.
The buyer had every right to complain, I guess a direct quote of "Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed" does not mean anything anymore.

I don't disagree with a word you say. My comment is in addition to the obvious poor customer service. People do mislead, you know. Sad but you have to make allowance for that too.
