Post TRI Tuning? Opinions?

I want to buy the V5 wing from TRI but I'm not familiar with them. Anyone have an opinion. Also, what about universal mufflers? Do they flow/sound better? Thanks.

I ordered a Greddy lip spoiler from them and it took a little longer than I would have liked, but I got it in the end. I think they are pretty good in general, give em a try.

TRi is THE place to go for JDM parts. Absolutely amazing prices and selection.

Two things to remember:
1) Every time you order something that's not in-stock, you're waiting on a big boat to carry it across an even bigger ocean and then a big truck to carry it across a big country. Delays are to be expected. TRi gave me a 10% discount because of them...very nice about it.
2) CALL THEM. They're practically a wholesaler, and they don't get online much (with Faraz there that's changing...) but they will answer the phone when you call and they're very helpful when you get them on the line.

I was very happy with my service...but I was pretty patient with the STi badge too. Sometimes good prices are worth the wait. It's up to you to decide.

I like TRI. I've bought many things from them, including STi pedals & Shift knob, rear wing, Greddy Lip... And although some pieces take a long time to get here, they are all very good pieces.
Cheers,
JP

Other than what 8 and Subie Gal have said, I will only say in this forum that the wrenches are on the way, according to the valid UPS tracking number that I received yesterday.

I ordered the V5 wing from them today. They quoted me 'maybe Fri, at least by Mon/Tues, via Federal Express.

Chris was very helpful, courtous, and professional. After I asked about his other products, he even reccomended a competitor! If you can do that you have to be pretty confident in your company.

Besides, now that Faraz is there, (very cool guy) communications and customer relations should be even better.

I plan to do a big post with pics as soon as I get the wing. Look for it either this weekend, or early next week.
