I'm already demanding my money back, but everybody might not notice before installing part into car. So be careful out there.

You got screwed. I hope they will return your money as soon as possible. Is this the company where you bought it from?

They have negative feedback with the same issue like yours (wrong parts). Make sure you post your feedback. I am buying from eBay but before purchasing the item, I alway check the companies feedback. Good luck to get your money back.

Hunting for cheaper price made me blind.
Now i will order part from Germany like i should have done in first place.
It's not end of the world moneywise, but i seriously want to kick companies who do that.
That's why i'm here telling about it.

eBay is not to blame, but the seller and buyer. You gotta buy smart esp. when hunting for cheaper parts on eBay. Reputable sellers and accurate item descriptions (including pictures) is what you should be looking for.

^ Agree on buying smart and doing your research. Personally, I'd look for a seller with more than a couple hundred transactions; there are plenty out there in the thousands and tens of thousands with good feedback.

I don't see anywhere in the product description where it says you're buying a Behr product. I do see it in the photo, but not in the description.
