havent buy anything from him yet...pretty soon
cause....

i sent him an email to ask if he has any black subzero rota with polished lip in to stock, ready to sell me.

he gave me a respond very quick, to tell me he didnt carry any at that moment, and he is waiting for some soon.

most of time, the vendors dont waste time to do any reply of what they dont have....but he takes time to do it

I will never buy from him... I have been sending him PMs about getting some center caps for my rotas...He didn't respond to the first one after he read it (thank you message tracking) so I sent him another a few days later. He responded to that saying that he had the color that I wanted instock. I PMed him back about price, shipping, etc. and he read it but never responded. So I sent him the same PM again a couple days later...Read it, and again did not respond. :monkey: to subydude.

I don't think he knows what auto parts vendor discount means either - Get it together Subie Dude. I just love being refered to as a "drunk englishman" on one of the threads after I asked for a discount.

Not sure about the rest of this stuff but I do know that Joe was refering to me with the above statement as he has been refering to me by ways of the drunk Englishman or drunk vendor for sometime. The case in question I believe to have been in the Rota Formel thread sometime ago.

Just as a point. I don't feel that PM's are the way to go about purchasing items.. e-mail or telephone... PM's are for chit chat, not business... try a PM, get no response, e-mail or call.

So far so good. My package was shipped not too long after my order was "received" His prices are definitely very competitive, and seems to try and get the parts (like center caps) that we need.

Yeah, I'm gonna have to agree. There are tons of typo's and misspellings as well as the profanity. It seems like it's a personal/private webpage that was converted into a business page. Not that this really influenced my purchase, but it did make me think for a second.

I'd just suggest running the html through a spell/grammar checker and maybe cleaning up the language a tad and you'll be good to go.

subydude/joseph is the man. he knows his stuff and good service. we had a tad bit of a problem on the freight, but he came in and fixed it and even gave me a discount to compensate
for the problem.

vendors need to understand that when they make a mistake
or cause a problem customers want something in return, even
if its a small discount or kickback or something. that's the ticket
to getting those customers buying again at their store. they should learn from subydude.com

there is so much competition out there.

No problems here...smokin price, quick service, and when there was a small glitch, he took care of it quickly. I would buy more stuff from Suby Dude without hesitation.

Thumbs down Bad experience

Well I ordered a WRB Sti scoop from Suby_Dude and it arrived very fast.

Problem was there is alot of dirt in the paint and the spots are very noticable. I contacted him about this twice and he replied just "send it back". I asked him if he could cross ship another one as I dont have the stock scoop anymore and he didnt even respond.

Not happy.

Good luck I hope any new people dont get one like I did.

Default Subydude rules..

I just gotta say, I've never used a better vendor than Subydude . He got my wheels to me in two days, super cheap and just awesome to deal with. He answered my emails within minutes instead of days, and talks to you like you're a person.

Anyway, I just wanted to give him props since I like his service so much. If you need any STI parts or wheels, he's the dude to go to!

Brian

p.s. I am not affiliated with him in any way, just a super satisfied customer, and I want to give him props since it's so hard these days to find a vendor that's good all around.

I'll second that!

I'm uber-pleased with my Rotas, and he was very cool via email and on the phone.

I'm not affiliated either, but I should be! I've referred about 10 people to him, some of which I know bought wheels

Highly recommend!!!

I second that emotion.

My wheels came today, a day early. Super ethical vendor.

Can we get him a franchise to sell new Subarus. The other dealers would not know what hit them.

How about some White STI hood scoops............with splitters, that would be a sweet package.....
