Angry Bought an Exedy clutch kit from ebay and...

Wondering what you guys think / what you would do. Today I got in my mail the Exedy clutch kit I had ordered on ebay, about $80 shipped which is a heck of a deal (normally $130-140 on Amazon). I had asked the seller beforehand if this was in fact true Exedy product (listing had a suspicious-to-me "Brand new in a box" mention). So the box shows up, it's an older Daikin Clutch box (now they say Exedy on them) but with the correct part number (16065). I open the box and...

Exedy clutch disc (TYD085U)
ASCO pressure plate (CT-055)
Nachi throwout bearing (60SCRN31P-6)

Not what I was expecting, to say the least. I'm considering returning it, if only on the basis that it is not as advertised. I'd rather spend the $60 more and get the OEM quality Exedy parts I was expecting. This clutch kit is for my 4A-GE build, BTW. Am I getting worked up over nothing?

Here's the listing:

Not at all. It was advertised as one thing and you received something different. I would definitely return and let ebay know. Sellers shouldn't be able to do that to people just because you're making a purchase over the internet.

i'd return it and just say you changed your mind, or got rid of the car. you got 30 days it says in the post. they may stick you with the 20% fee. it looks like it says exedy on the top, but in the description says DAIKIN.

Daikin Clutch became Exedy from what I understand. Or they were always the same company. I just know that I had bought a new Exedy OEM clutch kit for my Honda, and everything in the box was marked Exedy. Hell, the clutch disc was inside its own smaller Exedy box with the PP. But there were also some Daikin Clutch logos on that clutch kit box.

I saw that about the restocking fee, but I'm wondering if ebay will side with me since the goods were not as advertised, and I would get the full refund ("plus shipping price" per ebay's front page ad).
