eBay parts: whats good, whats acceptable, and what to avoid

Hey festers! So whilst chatting in the chamber of OT last night I had this idea, the idea of making a thread where anyone whos bought ebay parts for their E36 can write up a small review on its quality and the likes. Its just like consumer reports, for bimmers. Simple criteria is what it is, a picture or two, price, a link if possible, and of course what you think of it. I'll start.

I bought an ebay radiator as you all know. Well, keeping it short and sweet, it hasnt let me down and, for 145 shipped, I'd definitely buy it again. It came with a 14" aux fan, which doesnt really have much going for it, but I used it in my FDM. All aluminum construction means no more plastic to break, which is what made me lean towards this over a Behr OEM one. Heres a few pics

Fat welds around everything

Hopefully this one works. This could save many festers' tails in the future
