to go with my other post, i thought it would also be a good idea for people to start posting there experiences with difference speed shops etc. This could be the place to make a difference, or to get back at a shop that has upset you.
At the very least it will giv people a good idea where to buy certain things -and which stores giv good prices to the general public...
I can think of a few, the rest will come when i look through my receipts etc..
(these are just opinions, you dont have to agree)
Aussie Desert Cooler
-hopeless company. I have dealt with Norm.H from aussie a fair bit lately. First off i ordered a tripple flow XE radiator, 3 Row. I quoted the street machine price of $416 and he laughed saying not a chance, until i pointed out the advertised price as it has been for about 6 mnths or more...
after the radiator had arrived i could see it was of high quailty, not. The radiator had not even been wet after beening made, no cleaning what so ever.
-I had paid for a tripple flow but the was NO signs of an baffle system inside the tank. Norm just had sorry for this.
-the over-flow bottle spout had never been braised on only tacked, that lasted 2 days befopre falling out.
-it went to a local shop to fix the spout, where he noticed both bottem and top tank that need to be closed for strength had not be touched.
-to many to pists inclu waiting 4weeks for $450 return on a shit rad that performed worse than the stnd 3 row i hav now.
Superoo Falcon Spares
-their prices are silly marked up though they offer alot...
-I had an order i need fast, It only took 5 weeks or so once it was sent back and forth from melboune for no reason after they left a label on the box over and over.
-their "CUSTOM" new pedal box was nothing more than an OLD box re-painted and charged double price
-their "CUSTOM" tear drop power steer bracket is soooo stupid, it all made from loose washing that you have to organise yourself, there is no point on this kit. could be done at bunnings.
-prices can be argued down allot after a couple calls.
KB Engine Parts
i would have to say i like these guys on my experiences. there parts arrived fast, the order was correct for suck a large order and all the parts were very very welll priced.
prices can be talked down alot, markup is to big over all their products.
good service on phone but takes a while for then to get the stuff in the mail.
just a start i guess.
sorry if this offends anyone, this is just to help people just starting out.
