I found this post from: http://tinyurl.com/43fel   Looking at each eBay
users feedback and the item itself, it appears that the poster is
telling the truth. Seller appears to use negative feedback to retaliate,
rather than to work things out.

"Just thought I would leave this cautionary post.

On 12/8/04, I won an auction for 6000K H4 Eurodezign bulbs from
aricoentinc , on eBay.

When I received the shipment, the product shipped turned out to be
8500K bulbs. I emailed the seller, asking if a mistake had been made.
Seller's reply was that Eurodezign stopped making the 6000K blue tinted
bulbs and the 8500K bulbs were sent, instead.

I objected to the substitution. I did not want the deeper blue color,
characteristic of 8500K bulbs (can you say pimp my ride?), and the
diminished light output produced by the higher color temperature.
Seller's response was that I didn't know what I was talking about and,
either way, it was too bad because there was a No Refund disclaimer on
the auction. BTW, if you go to eurodezign's web site, they show the
6000K bulbs as one of their available products.

After a few more exchanges of email, I finally filed a complaint with
eBay, PayPal and disputed the charge on my credit card.

Good news is that Paypal has agreed to provide a full refund to me upon
return of the product, which is all I wanted from the start.

Tracking seller's auctions, appears that seller has used the same
bait/switch tactic with another buyer.

So, if you are in the market for these bulbs (and I still am), I would
recommend that you avoid this eBay seller."
