Was on ebay saw this ttp://cgi.ebay.com.au/HSV-CLUBSPORT-R8-VT-VX-CHROME-BOOT-MOULD-ONLY-NEW_W0QQitemZ190045890163QQihZ009QQcategoryZ102358QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem#ebayphotohosting and thought wow how good is this....... until i read the fine print and saw it was just the chrome strip. How dodge would u be to have a pic of the whole garnish there. Nearly fooled me but i feel sorry for the next poor sap. Why isnt there rules about making it 100% clear what your selling in the orginal pic? Or am i just being pickie? haha

yeh
its around alot these days, but not just on ebay
people try and sell an item, but show a picture of it, with better items around it to make a buyer look at it and say, hey that looks good.
i got stooged when buying door handles from ebay. the pics showed they were chrome, i got the door handles. but it was only the trim
it was false advertising also tho

Not as bad as the person who paid $1000 for a Playstation 3 box

Just takes a bit of reading to work out what you're actually going to be paying for.

I wouldn't exactly call him dodgy, i brought my VX garnish off him and i'd recommend him to anyone thats looking at buying something from him. I don't know if he's changed his wording since then, but when i clicked on the link it says in brackets: (Chrome boot mould only). And it lists the garnish for $220 and other parts too.

And yes i agree with you on he should only show the chrome strip not the whole garnish as well
