If it makes you feel better, this is the first search result when looking for him as a vendor. Comes before his group buy threads
As per my usual approach before even PMing someone, I google them and any info I can find on other forums. I stumbled on this as well. Any resolution OP?

If you want a HKS kansai diffuser PM RAVSPEC. The fit and finish is perfect. They been around for a very long time and would help customers. They either produce their own products or purchase from REAL companies. They stand behind everything they sell including oil caps, wheels, GTSPEC suspension bracing to volks,rays,work etc.

Stay away from FORCEWERKZ. Bad products, bad service.

Rav specs diffusers even though they are reps are very very well made. I own one of their kansai reps and get nothing but compliments on it. I wanted a real voltex diffuser but at 1600 dollars from Japanparts.com I highly doubt I'd buy one. Knowing that its one bad curb away from being destroyed. Main reason why I buy eBay rep lips is also because I've destroyed about 6 of them already.

Was planning on purchasing the v-limited/prodrive combo lip off of the JonMotoring website. Googled reviews because I think that's what any sane person should do before purchasing something for the first time.. this thread was the first result that popped up.

So free bump because people need to continue seeing this even if they aren't searching for it. You saved me from splitting headaches and wasting many moneyz.

Even reading from the Netherlands..
Thank you !
I was looking for the 2004-2007 Subaru WRX/STi Mature Style rear diffuser.
first I looked it up at UnionPerformance.. and then today saw that J-motoring selled it against low shipping rates.

Emailed him if the shipping fee were correct to the Netherlands ( $12,50) because that cant be correct.
so I used google.. and I came here.. now reading that UP & J-M are one.. i`m not sure if ill order anything..
in meanwhile i`ve got an email back from J-M. that the diffusor is to big to ship internationally...

any tip for shops where I can order a decent diffusor AND ship to the Netherlands ?

Anyway, Thanks for the save!

Wow, glad I did a research before buying. I came across this on another forum (s2ki)

http://www.s2ki.com/s2000/topic/1076...toring-review/

Apparently, this was a false advertisement on Jonmotoring's part. It seems like he listed it as "Made in USA" while the product was made in Taiwan.

The Moderator there also responded in favor of the buyer...and Jon has since disappeared. THAT'S FUNNY...

Thanks for sharing this, I was seriously one click away from ordering some side skirt extensions for my wrx that he has on his website. Good thing I'm a cheap bastard and decided to search up (jonmotoring coupon codes) right before I sent payment. lol cause your thread was the first thing that should up. Hope you get your money back man being if you haven't already.

The flares I got from Forcewerks were junk. I took them to two different body shops (one of which specializes in Subaru widebodys) and they both told me that there was no way the flares would fit the car properly, the flares were too narrow and the back of the flare did not line up and hit the tire. Forcewerks refused to accept that they didn't fit, saying that the were made for the 04-05 cars, not the 02-03 and that is why they didn't fit "just right". The fender openings are exactly the same. What a joke, they did nothing but argue that the flares fit fine with some modification. $500 for a couple pieces of rough fiberglass, they better fit perfectly.

Lucky for me, I bought mine from they guys at Import Image. They took care of the problem and refunded my money. Class act over there.

And im done with Jon/forcewerkz/every other name he can think of on this forum to help him trick customers into buying from him.

We've bought directly from him since day one.

Customer contacted him directly to see the status, and this is what he replys with.


Nothing is ever in stock, its always 2 weeks. Jon lied to us stating he never said any of this in multiple emails, Then the customer forwards the email from Jon proving he's wrong.

This isn't 5th grade, why lie? We've been in business for over 10 years, selling tens of millions of dollars on here, I will not put up with any of this crap.
I stood up for this a hole...and now I'm seeing what everyone else has seen.

Have a great day, and do not buy forcewerkz.

Long time lurker but finally crated an account to thank OP.

Started looking for a front lip which lead me to Forcewerkz's posting. On page 5 I saw lox added this thread which was ignored, after reading through I understand why.

Also found it awful that they're stealing other member's photos of different parts to use as their own as SpeedMasterLee pointed out.

Thanks for saving me $180 besthaticouldo! Any luck getting your money?

Well that's an interesting development. Seems pretty obvious he just doesn't care. He's in it for the short term and basically just wants the cash, no building relationships or anything.

No problem man. This thread was cross posted in one of his threads? And he ignored it? Haha, that's funny.

Also, nope, every time I attempt contact he ignores me. Pretty ****ty of him. Still earning interest. I should have someone attempt to collect the debt.

Haha, that's an unsurprising response.

He never answers my emails or my texts or anything. He's pretty much written it off.

I'm thinking it's time to get paid, I'm gonna file a writ of execution and an assessment of a debtor. If he doesn't show it'll be a bench warrant.

I keep pinging him, PMing him, and posting visitor messages. He refuses to even correspond with me at all.
