Cool Introducing... ME!!! I sell stuff, ,you need stuff. Lets do this



So yeah I am a vendor now, starting out a budding business. I carry all the usual stuff, the big names, cobb, txs, tein, heck you name it, I likely carry it.
In any case, if you want to support a local guy at the absolute ground level of the vendor game, I am here.

My website is currently not built. I dont have the skillz (y0) to build it myself in anything resembling a professional way, and I havent made enough money yet to pay someone to do it.

If offer to trade someone some parts to do it, but I still have to PAY for those parts.

TJ, what do you want? Name it, Ill see what I can do. I carry a TON of brands, and I have like 6 sources, so there isnt much I cant get.
Being that I am not direct, I cant always beat the big guys prices, but sometimes I can, if only by a little. I can almost always match them at least.

The hardest part is when you are starting out, things go SO slow because people dont like to buy from a new not established vendor. And Ebay wont let me post buy it now auctions till I have 10 feedback, which essentially makes it impossible to sell things on ebay for now. I bought a V1 and am selling the clock from my WRX (people actually buy them, up to 50 bucks!!!)
so that will help.

The up side is most of the vendors I spoke to said to expect to only sell like 1 thing a week in the beginning, I have 3 sales under my belt with at least 2 pending right now, and its only been a week and a half that I have been doing this officially. (about that anyway). So things look good. It just stinks that it will take probably 6 months till I am making anything like a liveable wage from this.

Im in Austin, and SPT stuff is going to be the same as the dealer unfortunately, because the only way to get it, is from the dealer. I get it a bit cheaper, but not anywhere near as cheap as the dealers do. If you want the best deal you can get on SPT stuff, you are best off hitting up Subie Gal or one of the dealership vendors here.

Sorry man, wish I could be of more help there.

All online for the time being. I am going to move towards that later, but that will probably take like a year.

I need a price on a relatively cheap DP, and well if you can get it, an AEM Wideband (UEGO) Preferably Black Face.

PM me a price with shipping. Also can you get any gauge mounting accessories as I am looking for a clock mount gauge pod that is not the typical TSUNAMI WAVE format but instead the simple more stock looking format.

Eitehr way just PM what you can get.

No on the AMsoil
No on the hangover (strangely enough)

Business isnt booming, but its picking up slightly. Most vendors told me to expect 1 sale a week for like the first 2 months. I am at like 6 sales in 2 weeks, so thats a good sign I think.

Mighty, I deal with AEM, TXS and I cant think of who else for a wideband.
You just missed out on buying my LC-1/XD-16 setup by about a week though

BTW, PM me guys!

I didnt see the replies to this thread.
ANyone that asked for prices, I will get them to you by tomorrow afternoon. Or at least send you a PM to establish a dialog.


I made the slightly scary move of quitting my job today (last day is monday). Although it was a GARBAGE pay part time job, it was enough to make car payments. SO its a scary move, but one that I had to make in order to give my customers (and potential customers) the service level I want to give (killer)

To anyone who may be interested in parts for their Subie, give Dave a holler. His response time is AMAZING. Sometimes he'll PM me back literally within 5 minutes. He has something that not everyone has, and that's customer service.

Thanks
Now that this is my full time job, my response times should be pretty consistant. I had a couple times in the beginning where it was slow as I was at my day job. But no more This is my day job now

If anyone's interested in some Subie parts, at the very least you owe it to yourself to PM Dave. He will seriously save you some $$$.
