Let ebay know, file a dispute that the seller didnt give you anything as advertised.

Yes it is. The muffler is separate from the link pipe

see above. I got some farings from a guy on EBAY, they arrived with cracks. An EBAY rep got involved and they were forced to give me some money back. You have to make a big deal about it before they will do anything

I've seen the "mid-pipe" (pipe directly connected to the muffler) referred to as a link pipe B4. Just as Akra's "link-pipe" is usally called a cat bypass/cat emimanator/boom box elim/... or simular. Based off your post I'd guess failed communication v/s out right fraud. Did the seller offer to refund your money if returned? or did you only demand the part? What was pictured in the ad? How about a link to the ended auction for us to see?

If you paid by CC, then you could dispute it with the CC company if it came to that. i don't recommend that, and Im not saying try to get something for nothing, but he didnt represent it right, and the price of the mid pipe should be deducted, or the mid pipe included, case closed. Definately dispute it with Ebay though, maybe they will make it right, though dont get your hopes up.

there is confusion over what is a link pipe with the ebay shop seller is ,my problem now is should i keep on trying to make them send it for free or do i put my hand in my empty pocket and just pay for it?? i have already made a dispute with ebay and they said give it 10 days and see what happens, i guess il just have to wait ,im not gonna lose sleep over some ebay shop sending one free £125 bit of pipe when there knocking out loads of them and making a very shiney penny ,an odd one going for free aint gonna put them out of business .

honest opinion....looks like a misscommunication that the seller tried to make good by offerring a refund. It's not their fault you mounted and used the slip on despite feeling you didn't get what you thought was being sold. I'd not expect the seller to give you a pipe, they did what was required with the offer of refund for an unused product.

...the flip side is good customer relations would be to offer you a discounted "link pipe" or maybe free shipping, but not flat out free.

IMHO
