They knowingly sent the wrong mirrors! Then asked for a paper template to see whether they have something that matches the original mirrors.

There was a string of replies to this thread which have been removed.
From what I understand the seller issued a full refund inc postage.
I think it might be unfair to warn everyone to avoid them if they refunded you.

Refund or not, they knowingly sent the wrong item and hoped for the best. I would regard that as an insult to my intelligence. Wasting time on mucking around to sort the problem would make me very shXXty as well. Amateb8 you have every right to be piXXed off

We all hate to have our time wasted. I have been there before and have been annoyed on many occasions with poor descriptions and dishonest items.

The listing describes replacement glass for a fiat 126. No year is stated

I can think of at least 4 different shapes of mirror during the UK production of the 126, there are probably more.

The seller has put on the site "PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU ORDER CORRECT MIRROR - IF IN DOUBT PLEASE ASK"

Given the lack of clarity over year of manufacture I think it would have been wise to have asked.

I'm not trying to annoy anyone here in perticular Amateb8 who had his time wasted. My point is simply that if the advert is vague, ask a question. If you don't ask , then you might have to expect that it's not what you wanted. The likelyhood is that mirror fits a 126, just not the one Amateb8 owns

If after all that, the guy gives you a full refund, then I don't think he has done anything wrong.

The truth is...... I actually sent them an email stating the make/model. They then replied that they should have it. In retrospect, the reply was vague. I think, bottomline, they should have been a tad honest and said perhaps, they may have something that fits BUT no guarantees and/or probably ask for a template of the mirror. But of course, then they would not be able to sell anything. I think many will probably not bother to make an effort to return the item, which I think was what the seller was hoping for. This is highly speculative, of course.

I see what you mean.
I've had a few dealings with companies who hav genuinely made a mistake, but from what you said, this is not one of them.
It's a shame there are companies out there.
