Whats your opinion?

Ive just sold a classic impreza back box that came off a 1998 sport.
The bloke rang me saying he is at a garage and the exhaust wont fit his car, which is a classic w-2000 impreza sport.
He now wants his money back, which i am happy to do.
i stated in my advert that i didnt know if it would fit new shape impreza's (2000 onwards).

question 1 - Why wouldnt this back box fit his classic sport?
question 2 - Am i right to say no to a refund as the advert said i didnt know if it would fit 2000+ models

Re: Whats your opinion?

you could say, if he returns it at his cost then refund him when it returns to you minus the postage you paid to send it to him, just give it a full going over to make sure its not been switched with a damaged one that he had already.

That said though, if you sold it saying you wern't sure if it would fit then its not your fault, i suspect the money isn't huge amounts so he can always sell it on so i'd be tempted to say sorry, but i warned you. I suspect postage prob is a very high percentage of its value.

My main concern is, if I do have it back I will want to re-sell it on.
But why wont it fit a classic 2000 w reg sport?
I had it on a 1996 1.8 gl, and it came off a 1998 r reg sport.
Did subaru change the exhaust system on the 2000 model?
