E-mailed you twice with no response. I have heard zero from the group as to any issue. Why is the thread still closed?
Anyone care to enlighten me?

Re: Nav-group buy CLOSED temporerly until everything is solved regarding the organizers

I was hoping the GB price would be better than what I got in term Paypal request per Eric...and, who is this Eric? Which business sponsor this GB? The cut-off window was very short for the amount of money required. Everything just seems very wrong.

Alex, unless we can verify the source of your GB, I am very doubtful I can continue to participate with this GB.

Better yet, set up with the vendor and let us deal directly with h/her instead of paying you then you send us the item, in my case, items. If the vendor was to request payment, s/he must identify h/herself as a business with information that I can verified, not as an individual. This Eric guy must be kidding. I was laughing when I received his Paypal payment request for $1495.

All,



I just want to let you know that I have ordered the nav group buy. The sellers name is Eric Pitts. I have no affiliation with him. I don’t know how he knows Alexander, and for that matter I don’t know Alexander either. I do know the guy has sold stuff on eBay before. He sells under the name partyof5insc



Here is his feedback link:



http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewFeedback&userid=partyof5insc&item=-1&frompage=222



He had a Nav unit I was watching but did not win. I contacted him after the auction, and asked if he had any more, and he said yes. He was going to list them for $1700.00 or around there, and to keep an eye out on eBay for them. Then I saw his name pop up in the “Buy it now” deal on my email. I put 2 and 2 together, and figured this was Alexander’s source, and figured it was a legit deal.



The reason I paid is that I haven’t been able to locate the pair of units for this price $1550.00. Not even close actually. Also, you do get the nav DVD, which people are selling for around $100.00. I know the deal seems a little hazy, but I just got shipping confirmation from UPS, and I am to have the units for delivery on 4/25.



I will let you all know when the products arise, and how they work.



I have nothing to benefit from sending this email, but I sure hope it eases your minds a little.



Brian

Just a update on the group buy. I just got the items from Eric Pitts via UPS as ordered. Model numbers match. In case you still were trying to put a group buy together. Also, I talked to Vaheh Crevier and ordered all of my extraparts to do the full Sirius conversion. He said they sell the DVD player alone for $1800 + with their internet wholesale pricing. I got a screaming deal, even if it is still a lot of money ($1550).



That’s all from me. Thought you’d like to know.

Also, just to clarify my last post. That was $1550 for the new DVD nav unit and a 16:9 screen with tape deck. I have a 2000, so I have a 4:3 aspect. And it is Vaheh @ Crevier, not Vaheh Crevier.
