Received and determined: these were self-leveling but both L&R headlights have broken adjuster sockets (the adjuster arms are intact) so not only does self leveling not work but these are not useable because they cannot be aimed. PM sent to seller.

First, this post is not cool. Second, you are incorrect. Those lights are not self-leveling and i did not sell you defective lights. You sent a PM last night and didn’t allow a response before posting this. Great communication. These lights were in perfect condition when shipped to you. Once the PM is able to be viewed that I just sent you, I’ll post it in this thread because trying to publicly trash me is not the way to effectively communicate.

I’ve been selling gently used parts from my cars on BMW Forums and occasionally on eBay for years with 100% feedback and not one issue. I would not risk my reputation for anything. I take care of my property and these lights were no exception. I shipped these to you on the September 8th, they arrived on the 15th and you contact me on the 20th to say they are broken after you tried to adjust them. Come on.

If you were an actual scammer you wouldn't have sent anything, so I know that's not the case.

The comments you make while staking out your defensive position indicate that you really aren't qualified to be selling used parts - a new headlight installation will need aimed more often that not, especially when the headlight is aimed 10 feet in front of the car, as was the case when I installed the right headlight of this set (then discovering the broken adjuster). Further, you said you did not do the removal yourself, so you may not have noticed, or may not have thought it odd even if you had, the feeling of a large piece of plastic banging around inside the headlight housing. Yes, that loose piece banging around was the reflector/projector assembly.

What's not cool is selling junk on M5Board.

Below is an image of: the self-leveling stepper motor in the left headlight, and the broken adjuster socket in the left headlight.

No, I did not remove them but I was present when they were. They were removed by my friend who is a Mercedes master technician, and who also installed my replacement lights. I handled these lights from the point of removal to shipping and there were no pieces of plastic or anything else “banging around” inside them.

The bottom line is this, had you handled the communication related to this issue properly and not taken the lights apart, I would have gladly issued a refund as long as you paid to ship them back. Selling these lights complete as I did was an attempt to pay it forward to another forum member. I don’t sell junk nor do I own any either. Enough said.

I alerted you to the problem and in your first response you became defensive and denied the possibility that I knew what I was talking about. Now you say the problem is how I brought the issue to your attention. I've proven through pictures that you didn't know what you were selling, much less the condition it was in. Turns out you sold junk.

This should have been first handled via PM, and if not addressed then sharing something on the board would have been appropriate. You didn't even give the seller the opportunity to rectify the situation.
