Forum Rules For 8thcivic

Always include a price in your thread. If you're selling a car you MUST include the asking price AND the VIN. Pics are always helpful.

Only 2 bumps per day

No Ebay Links To Stuff You're Selling- If you are selling something on ebay - fine. You don't need to post it on here, because the items on this forum are at a set price.

No Public Bid-Wars or Price Bashing! - Show common courtesy to the person that is selling their item. Do not reply to their post in a negative manner, with "I will sell anyone the same spoiler for $20.00 or less!". If you can offer it cheaper, start your own sale post. Don't encroach on another members sale post. That is thread jacking and is a warnable offense.

If these simple rules cannot be followed your thread/post will be deleted without notification.

No COMMERCIAL posting allowed! - The Sale Forums are for 8thcivic owners and enthusiasts to trade and sell parts among each other. All commercial posts will be deleted and user is subject to account ban!

The Sale forums are not for businesses to advertise or unload goods. If you post more than one of the same item for sale that is considered selling for profit and will not be permitted here. Any company interested in advertising their goods and services at 8thcivic should go through the proper channels to do so. And, please don't sell items that are not yours. (Example: "I'm selling this for a friend of mine")

Group Buys
- Group Buys are considered commercial as well and ARE NOT allowed in Sale Forums, or any other area of the site.

New User Restriction - To protect our members from quick buck scammers, and to weed out commercial profit scrubs, you must have 31+ viable posts, and be a member for at least 45 days to start a sale in this forum. If we witness evidence of a new user spamming replies and posts just to get their post count up, they will be banned.

Post Your Price, NO Auction Type Sales! No 'Best Offer' Sales! - Running your sale like an auction is not acceptable in the Sale Forums. This is not EBAY - last we checked it was 8thcivic.com. We find this to be a highly dishonest form of selling. There is nothing stopping the seller from telling one member he/she got a higher offer through Private Messaging or Email, when they really didn't. So in short, you must list sale prices in your sale post! No further explanation needed. If you post an auction type sale, it will be removed and you will be flagged with a warning to your account.

Accepting deposits/payments - Due to complications stemming from past transactions we will not allow any transactions involving making payments, or deposits to hold an item from here on out. This is not only to protect the buyers from losing their hard-earned money in a sale gone awry, but also to protect the sellers from entering an agreement that could lead to more trouble than you possibly could’ve considered.

Rules put in place by the seller - You must have all the guidelines that pertain to the sale outlined in the first post when the thread is opened. Changing the rules of the sale after the thread has been started will lead to an immediate thread closure no questions asked. Yet again, this is to protect both the buyer and seller from ending up in a situation that is detrimental to both parties.

8th Generation Civic Parts, Accessories, Etc. ONLY - Items must be specifically usable on the 8th Generation Civic Models. Only 8thgen civic/6thgen Si models can be sold here. Mobile audio/video and radar detectors are ok. Game systems and laptop computers are NOT acceptable. No selling your Spider-Man comics or Barbie collection. Again, this is not Ebay!

Please try your best to be as descriptive as possible in your sale posts. Pictures are worth a thousand words as well.

In order to help the site staff stay on top of things, once your item or items have been sold, please report the original post by using this icon
to let us know the items are sold so we can close the thread. Thanks.

Effective August 1, 2008:
Posting at least one accurate picture of good quality is required for each and every sale or trade. Along with an accurate description of everything you're selling and its condition, this picture must include a legible Sign with the following:
  • Your User Name
  • 8thcivic.com
  • Today's Date


Digital watermarks or digitally inputting this information into your sale thread is NOT sufficient and may result in thread closure. If you do not include pictures, your thread WILL be closed and/or deleted. Compliant Pictures MUST be included upon creation of your sale thread or when initiating a possible trade in FT threads. Using someone else's photos is prohibited.

  • Must be separate and actually on a piece of paper, and no photoshop or paint text allowed on top of your picture
  • When a member is selling several items or multiple items like wheels are anything that goes in sets. Picture must be taken with each item by itself showing any damage
  • Each and every part/cable/component that comes with it is required to be in the photo(s). The exception to that rule would be if the item(s) clearly specify that it is "unopened and sealed from the factory".
  • Photo(s) must be included at initial time of posting. No, "I'll post a picture later" excuses

Post Subject Prefix - Try and use the following format to help people know your intent for posting. Start your post with the following codes in the Subject field to verify what your sale thread is about. If it is something general and the codes don't apply, just be sure to enter a good description in the subject.

FS: For Sale
WTB: Want to Buy
FT: For Trade Only
SOLD: Go back and edit your post later with this update if your item sells. This way people don't waste time viewing it if they aren't interested.

Examples of a good sale post's subject:

FS: Graphite 17" Wheels, slightly used
WTB: New or used APEXi SAFC

Paypal Transactions
Paypal Terms Of Service:
Pay Pal Policy:
4.6 No Surcharges. You agree that you will not impose a surcharge or any other fee for accepting PayPal as a payment method. You may charge a handling fee in connection with the sale of goods or services, as long as the handling fee does not operate as a surcharge and is not higher than the handling fee you charge for non-PayPal transactions.

If you are the seller - you must post a fixed price, and prepare to absorb the paypal fees associated with accepting money through their site. You cannot add an additional % fee for accepting paypal per their terms of service, and breaking this can result in your paypal account being closed. See link above for example.

We thank you all for your cooperation. Keeping this forum will make it a better experience for everyone. :)
Thank you.

Closing Your Sales Thread

To help users out, we now allow users to close their sale thread when an item is sold. This will help keep things clean, and it will prevent users from clicking into threads where items have already been purchased by another member.

On the top bar of your sales thread, you will see "Thread Tools". By clicking on that, you will get a drop down menu. You will be picking "close thread" and then clicking "perform action". See screenshot below
// Screenshot

After you click perform action, you will get a new screen like below:

This will officially close your sales thread. It will place the lock icon on the thread to alert other users that the item is now sold.
