do people not know how to read ? i didnt list e30 mechanic services FS, its not my responsibility to cover your insanely high estimated gas cost or my responsibility to install it for free. and finally if i had otrher bumpers/parts from an early car that i wanted to sell dont you think they'd be in my listing with all the other bumpers ?

While I may not like you I can agree with the philosophy, Craigslisters are all from the Darby slums and try any tactic on the planet to barter you out of your goods for next to nothing.

WTF semantics? Are you all of 12? Mechanic work is mechanic work, if he showed discontent with a timing belt then assuredly the same discontent follows.

OTH I made $758 off a Craigslist lady with a 91 525i that just needed a rad and a belt tensioner. Broke down and all warning lights came on and she towed it to her house and it sat 8 months. Then I spent $50 in parts and used a rad I had and it bought my E30. So don't be too pompous to extort a craigslister, it may end up FTW......
