Ordered a Forge Recirculating BOV from Dave last week. Went to install it, no dice. The base was not properly adjusted from Forge, so it didn't fit my car at all.... :-(

Dave was extremely helpful throughout and right off the bat said I could return it with no hassle. I decided to call Forge and see if they could explain to me how to readjust the base. Long story short, nothing worked (Forge apologized from the inconvenience, and was also very helpful with the whole thing).

Called Dave back, he gave me the go-ahead to ship it back. Got my refund today (for the BOV, shipping to me, and the shipping back to Dave). He works fast, and is extremely helpful!

I will DEFINATELY be buying from Dave again!

A+ for Oakos....

The way more vendors should be... answers the phone, answers questions quickly and clearly, friendly on the phone, writes a personalized email regarding your order, prompt shipping. I had inquired from 2 vendors about the same part, I placed and received my order from Oakos before the other vendor responded. Job well done!

Yes... By far the best vendor anywhere. Everything I order from him gets delivered ahead of schedule. Customer service is absolutely the best. If Dave can do it, why can't other vendors?

Dave...do us a favor and open up a Meijer sized store with stuff and sell everything so we don't have to buy elsewhere.

I ordered Brake lines a speedbleeders from Dave. I had them in about 3 days. I also had hoses and pulleys on order from another vendor for about two months. I got fed up with them and ordered the same products from Oakos. Again within three days I had my stuff. I'm more than impressed with Dave/Oakos Automotive. I WILL be ordering from them again.

Awesome Vendor!!!

Thumbs up oakos automotive

Oakos sets the benchmark to which all other internet vendors should be measured. Prices, customer service and professionalism are second to none. I have had many bad experiences with "performance" companys on the web that leave you hanging for days or weeks without product or even correspondence. That's not the case with Dave at Oakos. Instant e-mails with personal notes, and a sense that he truly does appreciate every sale. Great company, will do business again and again with them. Keep up the good work.

I have to say that these guys are good.

I ordered Kartboy exahust hangers from them yesterday. Immediately, I got an email telling me my order was received and that I will receive another email once it has been shipped. Later that day, I got an email telling me that my order was shipped. And that because it was shipped via USPS that there was no tracking number.

And I just got my hangers. Earlier than I expected. Keep up the good work guys!!

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Dave/Oakos rocks! His commitment to customer service is top notch. I emailed Dave after a part install gone bad and Dave was extremely prompt and helpful in rectifying the situation. I'll definitely purchase from Oakos again. Bump for a great vendor

I concur. Dave hooked me up with a good price on a set of Noltec caster/camber plates, and then doubly hooked me up by recommending a different shipping option that would be cheaper but get here just as fast.

I just ordered a short shifter and bushings from Oakos. What excellent service! A personal note the same day I ordered saying they had already shipped it, complete with tracking number. In this business, it's all about customer service. I wish I'd known about these guys about a year earlier- I could have avoided some other companies.

Oakos has been excellent on both of the orders that I have placed with them. Good pricing, orders go out VERY quickly and Dave is super responsive.

Unfortunately I am currently finding out with other vendors how exceptional his service really is.

I bought my Rotas from Dave for a great price. Shipment was very fast and Dave sent me a thank you email for ordering. Great vendor. If they only had more stuff, I'd give him more business. I highly recommend them.
