Default Great Vendors; Review

Since we all put so much time into trashing vendors for their lack of professionalism, customer service, quality of product, and overall behavior, I think it would be an interesting change of pace to say who I feel are some of the better and best dealers on the i-club. Keep in mind these are only the companies I have personally done buiness with so if a vendor is excluded from my positive list, it is not because they provide poor service, it is because I have never bought from them or had dealings with them.

Z1 Performance: Awesome customer service, good prices, unbelievable knowledge of products and car, great reliability, and very very trustworthy. I actually once dropped off my car at Adam Blooms house and had him take my car to and from work for a week so that he could finish my car and test all the mods before I got it back, WOW!

TurboXS: As good as they come, and although I have never met Mark or Phil, they are top notch and deserve tons of praise. They are right up there with Z1.

Cobb Tuning: I have spoken to Cobb a numerous amount of times and they are an all around cool company. Very knowledgable, very friendly, and quick to return phone calls and/or emails.

SPO Motorosports: Although they are relatively quiet on the I-Club, dont be fooled. These guys are serious about what they do. I purchased from them and when I inquired about more parts they were fast and friendly with a response, asked me how I was and the car was. I will def. do more business with.

German Autowerks: Awesome customer service, great communication, and great quality parts. At the time of my purchase from them they were a newer company and did everything perfectly.

Imprezer, via Bozz Performance: He was willing to take time out of his busy schedule to explain to me the benefits of the parts I was ordering, and he even shipped everything the same day I ordered it. Very cool stuff!!


I think that pretty much sums it up. Please post similiar good dealings with vendors, and lets keep the bitching about other vendors to a low roar, there are other designated forums for that.

Thanks,
Pete

Oh Crap!!! I completely forgot about them.

Kartboy: Highly recommended. I have made several purchases from them and I have refered at least 10 others. I will certainly do more business with them. Fast, friendly and cool!!

I just want to thank you guys for taking the time out of your busy days to post the reviews here.....it makes this a better community.

I think the best part about this business is that not only do we get to do what we LOVE, but so many of our customers have truly become good friends...that is not an easy thing to accomplish in any business, let alone in one where people entrust us with one of their most valuable possesions..their cars.

As for our website, it is DONE!! just some final changes being done today/tomorrow and then we are up and running. Bear in mind the site isn't huge just yet...but the basic layout is there and we have the most popular items on there. however, we are going be spending endless hours updating it once it is fully online, and within the next 30-60 days, we'll have full online ordering capabilities, real online time tech support, and the BIGGEST catalog anywhere on the web of Subaru parts.

I have nothing but good things to say about Airborne Motorsports, they returned all my phone calls and E-mails within hours! They had great prices also.

I just ordered the Kartboy SS and made a mistake in ordering. This was recognized by them and I received an e-mail informing me of this. I just wanted to say how impressed I was with this type of service. I highly recomend Kartboy, they have excellent service. Very happy with everything so far.

Puts in another nod for Kartboy.

To sum it up really quick: Great prices, quick shipment, super high quality parts, and Atomic Fireballs!!

Now to me, that last part was the greatest. Talk about personal service.

Additionally, I'd like to say:

Larry Ganz (ImprezaRS) was great with my exhaust

Challenger Deep was great with service (I didn't order my parts from him, but his service was top notch)

PrimmMotorsports was really quick on my shipments.

I would have to add Togikiracing. Shipping was extremely fast, good pricing on all items, and great service too.

Just want to post a comment for Adam (Z1)

This guy is incredible!! To start off I have been waiting for my exhaust for close to 6 months now. Finally we both got fed up with JIC USA excuses as to why the exhaust wasn't here 4 months ago when they said it would be... He's now ordered a JDM exhaust from a Japanese supplier, shipping that over air frieght, ordered a Godspeed JDM downpipe (I have a USDM now because I was planning on a US exhaust) and is going to exchange mine for it, tossed in a free Cusco Lower Arm Bar type 2 for free, also he is totally honest with what is going on with any order and is always willing to help answer questions or chat about whatever... A lot of vendors feed you a line of crap when your order isn't coming through, he was totally up front about everything...

Adam, whenever I can buy something from you, I will always try to do so, you've made a repeat customer out of me just by service alone and the small extra price increase that I pay for that is well worth it.

Well I am glad to see you guys are happy with the service we provide...we simply aim to please. Obviously there are times when things get far beyond our control (such as with nate's exhaust), but as many of our customers will tell you, if a problem doies crop up, we'll bend over backwards to rectify the issue and help you out any way we can.
