Anyone bought from this guy on ebay

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/MERCEDES-W-123-W126-NEW-COVER-for-Front-Seat-CUSHION_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQcategoryZ33702QQihZ017QQitemZ270013795340

Price is right, and his feedback is ok, not perfect......

But the product looks quality. I may be a guinea pig and try him out.

The private feedback scares me. There's no good reason for keeping feedback private. He's had 3 negs in the past 12 months and some neutrals which are usually negative comments posted by buyers afraid of retaliatory feedback.

3 negs in 12 months is acceptable from some sellers when they're doing that kind of volume but the fact that he's trying to hide it is a cause for concern.

I think there are suppliers on eBay with public feedback, good reputations (convertibletopsonline) and similar prices.

Hey Gigtime, good to see you.

Strife, I just sent convertibletopsonline an email to see if they carry W123 stuff.
Thanks for the heads up.

Hey, what's up? Did you do the run to Centerville?

I ordered a new pushbutton unit, installed it on Friday and within a few minutes my compressor started complaining. Looked like the pulley was wobbling. That's a rebuilt compressor from less than a year ago and I've hardly driven the car in the past year. Going to let my mechanic deal with it.

Did you paint your car yet?

Thanks for asking the question. I found his site yesterday while looking for an armrest. The private feedback raised some questions so I came here looking for answers.

Anybody use his products?

I ended up contacting the guy at convertibletopsonline. Very very nice guy and very thorough. He states he has been doing MB stuff for over 21 years. He was VERY nice and VERY thorough and VERY knowlegable about the cars (asked me about pleats and stitching on my car!).

I will do business with him, his prices arent that different from the other guy. In fact they're a few bucks lower. He also carries the carpet for the cars. I told him he needs to get some more 123 stuff online, he'll sell a lot!

Anyway, I'm sending a check off for the new seat covers, and in two weeks new carpet!
