Default What the Heck GMPARTSDIRECT?!

I ordered a few things from GMPARTSDIRECT as I have in the past with no issues, but this time, I ordered a new EGR valve and gasket, a couple relays and an o2 sensor.....the o2 they sent me has CLEARLY been used! the anit-seize is even put on it already, I have purchased many o2 sensors and they never came looking like they have already been fired up and used. What the freak!?
I e-mailed them to send me a new one, not acceptable.
Anyone else order stuff from them with issues??

I've seen a lot of new O2 sensors come with antiseize preinstalled. Does it just look applied or does it look spread out like it's actually been threaded in? Any chance you can post a pic?

G0LFADD1CT is an unknown quantity at this point

I've seen sensors come with threadlock already installed too. Just recently I bought a coolant temp sensor that had it.

Did the O2 sensor looked used beyond the use of the anti-seize compound? Carbon on the element, weathered wiring harness pigtail?

Maybe someone "pulled a fast one" and returned a used one for a full refund.

I installed a Bosch O2 sensor this spring that had the anti-seize on it already.
