Default Authorized PRODRIVE dealer in Maryland!!!

hey all. I just want to inform everyone that Car Trenz in Rockville, MD is now an Authorized Dealer of Prodrive products, and if you all didn't know, they are authorized dealer of a lot of other products such as Rays wheels, Apexi, Injen, and Tein. They sell a lot of other brands such as Cusco also.

I know some of you may have came to Car Trenz before, and had bad experiences because I did too. But Car Trenz is now under new ownership, and the new owner is named Yul. Yul is a really cool guy and our car club hangs out there all the time. Basically, if you all need Prodrive stuff, Car Trenz is the place to go. They will price match on most prices. NO ebay or group buys. Bring a print out of the website or whatever and it's done. Yul said if there is group buys he can give really good deals. Reduced shipping and everything.

Car Trenz is off of Rockville pike(355). at Winter Green Plaza shopping center...it is also right off wotton parkway. there is a big VW and Mazda Dealership next to it, and a food lion. If you ahve any other questions let me know.

Im probably gonna get my P1 Front Lip spoiler from there soon

Car Trenz, LoL! There's one of those in Fair City Mall (Fairfax, VA). Biggest shady-shop EVER. You walk in there and they've got different used-looking **** all over the place every time. They have NOTHING in stock, but are ready and willing to order it at 2-3x retail and will have it ready to pick up in 3 months.

F'serious, waste of strip-mall space.

They sell stolen ****... there... I said it...

that car trenz in VA was closed down, and was owned by the 2 brothers, and so was the Car Trenz in Rockville.

why are some of you dissin' Car Trenz when you haven't even been there the past 2 months?

like i said, the shop is under new ownership, if you dont want to visit the shop, dont visit the shop. it is messed up how you can talk smack about someones shop when you haven't really been there.

Unfortunately the name is associated with its past. It may have a new owner but people will associate it with its past reputation which is not a good one to say the least. It will take time and effort to overcome that.
I dont agree with what someone did above dissing CarTrenz to put www.racecompengineering.com over as a
Prodrive retailer. Myles is not into the he said/she said war and I hope it doesent reflect on him in that way.....
I wish both companies the best of luck there are more than enough customers to keep everyone happy......

the Car Trenz in VA was sold last year to some kids and apparently they ran it down to nothing and lost a bunch of their discounts with several companies.

the Car Trenz in MD was sold a couple months ago to a new owner. They are willing to price match on items so give it a try.

Last time I was in there, **** was all over the place. Stuff was just stacked on tables, unknowledgable staff ("The first Turbo car subaru brought to the USA was the WRX, and Every Subaru in America is AWD, ever.")

I wasn't impressed at all.

But, since they are under new ownership, I might as well give them another shot. Hopefully the new owner cleaned up the act a bit.

So the Car Trenz on Rt 1 in Alexandria is still to be avoided right?

Every time I drive by there, it's full of BMW's and Escalades with blinkie lights and chrome wheels.

there is only one Car Trenz. That is in Rockville. I used to never go into Car Trenz when the other owners was there, but Yul has changed things around pretty nicely, and he knows that Car Trenz has a bad reputation from the past. I'm just trying to help you all out. If you all want to stop by the shop. it is highly recommended.

Hi, this is my first post.
For those of you who have had bad experience with Car Trez, you need to give the place a chance. The new owner is great, gives great deals to the consumers, and the staff has a lot of different perspectives from the different aspects of the tuning industry. The owner has taken great leaps to change the stores reputation.
I can tell you first hand that when the old owners ran the place the name of the store made me cringe. But now when you walk every one greats you with welcome rather than pressure. These guys know their ****.

I use to go to Car Tenz all the time when Carles and Wei owned it. They use to always give my friends and I good deals on stuff. I was also the one of the first people to get the Apex-i N1 for my '00 RS as they got 1 prototype in and sold it to me for $375 brand new in the box.

I went in there a couple months ago with my girl and they didnt have anything in stock and you could tell they had sold. Charles use to be stocked to the gills on things like rims, exhausts and other accessories like air fresheners. They didnt have anything when I went, but maybe things have changed since then.

As for the one in Fairfax Charles and Wei were partners with this rich kid that had a TT Supra a BMW M3 and an AMG MB. From what I heard they all sold the business and he moved to Vegas and Charles and Wei sold to focus on the Clubs they own. This is just what I heard.
