Thumbs up Eibachs and STi injectors

Gruppe-S is excellent. Their internet purchase system works like a charm. They have very competitive prices, good communication and quick delivery too.

The guys at gruppe-s should give a seminar teaching other vendors the do's and dont's of customer service. Plus they carry the very best products at great prices.

All I can say is awesome!

I ordered the Nur Spec from Max today and recieved the tracking number in less than an hour. It's supposed to be here tomorrow. Great prices and they definitely seem to be on top of things. Can't wait til it arrives and I can rattle all the windows in my neighborhood.

I'd like to add to the positive comments. Ordered my Blitz DD BOV this past Monday evening, and I just got back from the post office. Quick and easy transaction. Didn't have to pay anything extra either when I picked the stuff up.

I'll be ordering again from Max and the crew at Gruppe-S in the very near future.

Another thumbs up for Gruppe-S. Called about a Defi EGT D-Gauge, which they don't advertise they sell, but they got one for me anyway...and for a good price, too.

I will be looking to them for further upgrades when the time comes.

Fast shipping, great products, good prices. I don't know what more you could ask from a vendor. If they carry a product and I need it, I don't even need to look any further. Truly a class operation.

Max is alright...but his painted STI hood scoop $175 (now on sale) that he sold me was less than par. the paint job was very poor. i called him up and he said he would accept a return and refund me the total, but will not give me any kickback to compensate for the poor paint jo or waiting time. that would
mean that id have to pay freight for the return, wait another
week for it to be refunded before i could call up japan to get a
perfect one aired to me...which would take another week.

i did some extensive touchup to a point that I will accept the
scoop because i might be getting a CF hood/scoop down the road anyway... but it was just a lot of work on my part...sanding,
spraying, brushing, etc.

i have a feeling that MPJ performance is the same shop as
gruppe-s. or they're friends or something. they're selling the
same scoops at the same price, so....might be just coincidence
but not sure. might wanna keep an eye open for that one.

Gruppe-s prices and MPJ are different for most parts except hood scoops and other misc. items. Even though most paint shops try and do a good "color matching" w/ paint codes, it is impossible to exactly match color codes. Especially if painted portion is easily visible at different angles/ well seen location.(ask a good bodyshop) or sun faded(6 mos old paint is faded slightly no matter how much wax). I have purchased from at least a dozen vendors and try to go through Gruppe-s first. They are the most helpful vendor that goes really out of the way like accepting product back at no charge(probably after attempts were made to touch up paint/rough edges). Anyway, don't expect someone elses paint to match up to yours. The only parts I expect to come nearly perfect to factory paint are the "Pre-painted from factory STi parts like jdm fog covers and body kits. Live and learn my friend, I did as well.

kenchan - I hope we have not caused too much trouble for you. For the record, we were completely willing to pay for return frieght charges. It is just company policy to not refund charges until we have the item in hand. I understand it keep money out of your hands for some time, but we have been burned more than once when stuff that was supposed to be returned for one reason or another was not. We also would like to offer you discounts on future purchases to make up for the time and trouble you went through. We do very much want to make up for the bad scoop.

As for us and MPJPerformance... yes we do business together and are not located far from one another. We do carry very different product lines, but some things do overlap. Just because we sell a particular product for the same price as other vendors, however, does not mean we are "the same". It's called price-matching.

Thanks

Max

Are we talking about the same people? I tried to buy a turbo timer from them- my last e-mail was 12/16 and I still haven't heard anything back....

missdawn - If you had sent an e-mail inquiring about a turbo timer and have not received a response I do apologize for the delay as some e-mails do get overlooked on busy days. We do try to respond to every e-mail we receive but sometimes we skip around through our list of e-mails an a couple will be overlooked. We do have most of the turbo timers in stock as well as WRX harnesses (harnesses for other cars can take longer than usual as we don't stock every harness).

Thanks

Max

Thanks- I'll try again!

**Just wanted to say that I got a very quick response when I resent my message, and had my order placed that same afternoon. I have an item on backorder so it will probably be a week or so before everything arrives, but it was very gratifying to know that the previous glowing comments were not unjustified.**

This is a bump I shoulda made a few weeks ago, but since I just dealt with them again, I'm giving them a double bump.

Prior to making a decision that I wanted to purchase a turbo, I decided to go ahead and make the smaller purchases of the injectors and fuel pump. I ordered them from someone else (two separate vendors.) about 27 NOV. About a week later, I saw an awesome deal that Gruppe-S had for a VF30 with ~3k mi. on it. I had to jump on it. Well, I ordered the turbo on a Friday (6 Dec)afternoon and received it the following Tuesday (10 Dec). I still haven't seen the injectors or fuel pump.

It was important to me that I got the turbo, injectors and pump as quickly as possible because at the time (early December) I knew I was deploying to the mainland from early January until early February, and I wanted to get everything installed and running before I left. End result is that I wasn't able to install anything. I ended up cancelling my injector and pump orders and re-ordering them from Gruppe-S. Of course, I'm already deployed, but I got UPS confirmation and also my wife confirmed that they arrived today (ordered on Saturday, arrived on Thursday)

Plus, their prices and shipping charges rival or are better than anyplace else I've seen. Of course, shipping charges are very important to those of us who live in Hawaii.

Another thumbs up for Gruppe-s.com

After several different purchases I've been every bit impressed with their prices and level of service.

If they would get the Blitz-Nur spec rear-sections in, I'd buy one tomorrow from them!
