As a dismantler for over 20 years, Los Angeles Dimantler for Porsche 911, 993, 996 & Boxster has some knowledge about the industry. When purchasing on or off ebay it's important to make sure you are buying from a reputable seller. Let's face it, Porsche items are expensive. Make sure to check the sellers reputation to see if they stand behind their product. If an item price seems too good to be true it probably is. Fradulent items such as 993 twin turbo engines selling for 1/2 price and asking for cash upfront probaly means they stole the picture for the listing and don't really have the product (we have had several of our customers find these listings and a few were even scammed out of thousands of dollars). Our best suggestion is to ask the seller if you can pick up and pay cash for the item to be able to inspect (even if you have no plans to fly half way around the country or world). Chances are the seller won't even respond to you since he knows he can't produce the item. Remember in life you get what you pay for. Private sellers whose main line of business is not Porsche parts may not have the knowldge about the product and may not understand it's application. Shipping auto parts is also a tedious task, boxing and packing large parts such as engines, transmssion and bumpers requires custom boxing and special handling. All in all, be sure to do you homework. Thanks for reading and remember you bought your Porsche for a reason, to have fun and get noticed doing it. Any questions call 818 POR-SCHE (767-7243) Thanks!
