After you read my experience with GuagePods.com... you will know what I think about them...

Nov 11 - Read about the guagepods.com 3 pod A pillar piece... awesome!!!

Nov 11 - Go to guagepods.com and order the part. 45 + 5 for color matching + 5 for priority shipping. Fair enough price.

Nov 25 - Waiting. Decide to email them about status since noone is there to answer their phone

Dec 6 - Waiting. Finally get a reply!!!

Quote:
We just got the WRX pillars in stock 2 days ago and have been shipping
since. You should receive your pillar in a few days.

Sorry for the delay.
Dec 15 - Waiting some more.

Jan 2 - Waiting. Send them another e-mail

Jan 4 - HEY!!! Quick response!!!

Quote:
The status of this order is currently: Not Shipped
The ship date is recorded as: David: The wrx production was held up a
bit. We expect to receive them by the 10th. We will ship asap.
Jan 15 - over two months later... still waiting...

That's my story...

I am a patient person... I have been waiting over four months for my ADVANS.... that is understandable... they have to make them and them ship from Japan... guagepods though... hmmm...

Just all around a bad experience and I am just waiting to be disappointed when the a pillar pod actually shows up...

oh well.

Default hmmmm... what's with them?

Tinman -

You have received an email saying it has been shipped out but I still haven't. You ordered yours about a month ago and I ordered mine over two.

All I have to say now is, ***!!!!
[ whats with the edit??? *** = W T F!!! ]

I was being pretty patient but this is pretty *****ty...

I think it is time to just cancel my order and find a different manufacturer.

Anyone have suggestions???

Default FYI

I ordered mine 2 weeks ago and received it on Friday. Took a total of 13 days! I'd rate them better than ISR who took 3 months to not get an exhaust to me. Quality looks good but I haven't tried the install yet.

Have a Nice Day? Finally

After sending them another email on the 15th stating that others that ordered mine after i did already received theirs, and if i did not receive it soon that i would just cancel... I got a response stating that it was sent out that day. Wow... responsive.

So, it arrived on Saturday and was installed Saturday night.

Fitment was good as well as the color match. I have 60 mm Blitz guages and I only had to file down slightly to get them to fit in.

The screws they give are too short as others have stated. But, one will work for the top but you may want to get a longer one for the bottom. Otherwise, I only put the top one in and it seems fine.

I will get pictures posted soon of the install.
