i understand times are hard and some parts can be had as generic copies with very good quality ie blueprint (still not as good as oem) but sadly vast majority of ek9 in u.k are in very poor state and due to cost to maintaining to high level it doesnt happen and cheap parts are fitted

sadly aftermarket parts market is flooded with copies and 99% of time you pay for what you get and of the back of companies who originally design and r+d products

then on other hand you do get non branded products of high quality but few and far between

As i have said before we are gradually ironing out problems associated with certain products. The only products that have occaisional problems now are those we source from China. And it really is occasional - we do around 1000 transactions pcm with hardly any problems. Our 99.5% ebay feedback shows this.

We do try to rectify problems with customers but i would say out of all the ones listed in this thread maybe on only one or two ever contacted us to resolve them, and we will resolve them. We are not out to rip anyone off.

Thanks
Johnny
I have a question... Where do your brakes come from? :nerv:

Another stange one... these are made in the UK, so have never had problems.
Also this same problem would have happened with the £180+ fastline as its made exactly to spec. Again this is a first on this issue.

We have spare bottom parts in stock if you would like to change it.
Never had any problems with my fastline, 2 of my mates fastline shifters!

VIS carbon fiber hood. Underskin is separating from main ply and shakes like Japan over 80km.
Not a very funny comment to us that live in Japan! I spent 2 months in sendai helping people who lost everything 2 weeks before you made this comment....so obvisously you were referring to that.

Anyways, Password:JDM....I got the carbon kevlar plug cover and it had the most disgusting weive I have ever seen and was paper thin. I complained and was told it was a "race product" so flaws would not hurt performance!!!....ftw, they are for cosmetics not for saving an oz or two.

I would never buy their crap again.

These companys that just copy are clearly in it just for money, they don't have the passion and honesty to mature. I have seen good stuff come out of china, but it costs a lot more than the tat, there is no excuse to sell stuff that does not fit a particular model/year, if the guys taking the money can't be bothered to QC the work then they should not be in business, so come on, stop buying crap, oh yeh cheap stainless steel bolts will rust, more if you live near the coast.

Worst thing is the Password:JDM craplar cover was almost the same price as the sppon one which is constructed really well.....On Password:JDM's website they use pictures of the spoon one but give you the crap one.

I thought you might like that Ian it really is terrible that products that bad can be on the market, makes some other products look great by comparison.

guys i have a question...i bought all my 9 parts from ebay...most of them were brands but some other a few cheap usd and jdm staff and nothing was bad or no good fitting or no good quality!!!! just first check the comments of the item if it has warranty to be sure you want have any problems.. anything that doesnt have a warranty even a very expensive jdm part can be a failure!!!
