Hi everybody,

There was a new thread started today, under accessories, by a noob, first post.
He was selling OEM Mahles for K-Bikes and Airheads,cheap at 5 for $40.00 for the K, but with only a gmail address to contact him????? I get a few of those from Nigeria too so...... :(

Anyhow, I answered : OK, I could trust you, but there is also some of these around too ,and attached this to my post: :rolleyes:

http://www.mahle.com/C12570B3006C0D49/CurrentBaseLink/W26Y7DKE753STULEN

In any case the whole thing is gone........???????? :wtf:

Can someone tell me why? Site administrators please? :dunno:

If there is counterfeit ones around they may reappear somewhere else and I would like to pass it on, and keep an eye on "Good Deals" at the same time.


I'm always a skeptic on a good deal,probably would have tried to make him prove they were OEM, and since I found the above link doing research on oil filters I may have passed this on to Mahle. But it is gone.....took all the fun out of it. :cry:

But please take a look at that link above, I would not want to see too many of those indestructible engines in the shop........they belong on the road! :yeah: :bmw:

And if anyone sees other good deals, pass it on to me, I'd appreciate.......! :D

I think it was removed because the powers felt it was his first and only post and basically free advertisement.

Although I seem to remember me asking about a similar for sale thread by a first post noob and that was deemed OK, so I don't know.

Maybe it was the fact that he was selling a large number of them and not just one item. :dunno:

As far as price, you can get German made Mann filters for the K bike for $13, the OEM filters for about the same price. So I didn't think the price was THAT GREAT (I think he had $10 each).

However, thanks for the warning! :teeth

Probably someone flagged the post as spam and the administrators removed it. When you see an obvious spam, click the small red triangle with the exclamation point to notify the administrators. You will find it at the top right corner of the post.

Wasn't me. :teeth
But, it's a red flag with me, too. Smells like a drive-by sale,which we're not too keen on because of the high scam potential. Not like anyone with 10 posts is going to be golden, either, but it gets my attention (our attention?). Thing is, too, that if he checks in and fusses about it, we most likely will put it back as they're more likely to be legit ... but no guarantee there, either.

He also doesn't have the usual "tags" that we see with the spammers we get from time-to-time.

Killing the advertisement for now, but if you want to contact him, here's the other part.
