    I was kinda wondering if you had bought from mp3car...

    From what zip-lock says, keep it if ya like it I guess... If not, and they were indeed out of stock of the 915, they should have contacted you instead of just sending you something else they thought you'd like. Send it back, get some money back, and argue until you die that you're not gonna pay a restocking fee cause they were too lazy to ask you if you wanted a free upgrade, cause they're out of the 915.

    True. I do want a 915, I mean - I have everything ready to go for a 915 (actually owned one for a short time... long story) I definitely won't pay a restocking fee - if anything, I'll make money on the 945 and buy a 915 from somebody else...just don't want to screw mp3car, since they do support this forum (and therefore everything I know about car computing)

    Well, according to Zip it wasn't a mistake. So, sell your box, make a little off it, and buy a 915.

    What is the price difference in systems anyway? (EDIT: Sorry, motherboards on the brain...)

    This should not be a "moral dilemma!" Right is right and wrong is wrong. Have you ever heard the saying "Integrity is the only path on which you will never get lost?" I am a forensic accountant and certified fraud examiner and one quality that the employees that we investigate have in common is a broken moral code. They are almost always "good" people, not thieves, basically honest, but they crossed a line somewhere - borrowed money from their employer with the intention of returning it and then never did, etc. For some of these people, it eventually leads to ruined lives and jail time. I know you might think this is a stretch and it will never happen to you, but it can and does all of the time. You might want to check out this book Taking the Harder Right
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/097...lance&n=283155
    - authored by a good friend of mine with contributions by a couple of convicted felons - good people who went wrong.

    Another good book is The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead by David Callahan.

    If you always have a policy of doing the right thing, even if it is the harder thing, you will live with a clear conscience and never cross the line.

    Thanks dad...

    But as mentioned, I have already decided to send the unit back. Also, although your post was very motivational and inspiring, Zip did say that it was no mistake, and the company sent the 945 in place of the discontinued 915.

    Therefore, keeping the more expensive unit is exactly what the company expects that I will do. The problem, however, is that I do not need that unit, opting instead for the 915. So...

    If the company expects me to keep the unit anyway (and the shipment wasn't a mistake gone my way) why not sell it (since I can't use it) and buy the 915 from someone that still has one in stock?
