I happened to buy many things from e-bay, like for my 01 330i, a set of control arms, Meyle HD complete with bushing. About 3 weeks ago, a full of set Bilstein HD for $557.00 delivered. I installed the rears with Rogue Engineering kit. Yesterday, I installed the driver's side and hopefully next week the last strut. Search around and many will tell you that these are one of the best in the auto industry. And I am definitely happy with these high quality from ebay. I do not know what control arms you bought from ebay but this is a forum I believe is designed to help one another from good or bad experience (quality of parts, etc.), technical stuff and have some fun. It would not be fair for sellers or buyers for you to just say "please dont ebay this ebay that BS".

You also started your sentence with "this question is for those who bought control arms off ebay (please dont ebay this ebay that BS)..........what is your question?

I think FCP Groton sells them on ebay. I have had good luck from them, but I bought control arms from OEM Bimmer Parts. They have great deals on the best stuff.

You are right, although I used ebay, the control arms actually was sold by oembimmerparts from San Antonio, TX. I believe since then, the price has gone down a bit more. I now buy some of my parts directly from them.

you completely missed the point, what meant if asked before writing book, i did not want any negative response about buying from ebay, if you did not get that from what i wrote sorry but dont, do not talk down to me if you misunderstood what i wrote.

am not sure if smolck is a mind reader but he answered the question without being a dic, am not trying to be rude but was your reply called for, i dont think so. i just want to know if you bought suspension off ebay, who (seller) are the parts holding up,. if you dont want to help me fine.

thanks

thanks, i've been looking at FCP for some time now, am also looking at DNA motoring, DNA pricing seems low for control arm and bushing, i was hoping someone dealt with them, any feedback will be great.

thanks
