[helmet] Zephyr Bell - to return or not?

Hello,

I need a word of advise. I bought a Bell Zephyr helmet via online auctions. But when the helmet came, it turned out (I wasn't too surprised, though...) that it was a bit suspicious, since some parts of eps were missing on two lesser "ribs" of the helmet. These are not cracks (they do not run the full length), but evidently there's some polystyrene missing (more prominently at one side - somebody even tried to patch it up with some glue or something like that). Do you think this shortcoming can compromise safety or is it something rather insignificant with no bearing on safety?

Send it back ASAP. Do NOT put a damaged helmet as described near your head

Yeah, but actually it cost me one forth of its original price. Nevertheles, there's something fishy about it, so I need to return it, it seems.

Was the description truthful, it mentioned the piece you mention?

If not, return it or use it as a display piece.
