Two weeks ago I bought an ARC FMIC kit from a reputable sponsor on NissanSilvia.com. I clarified with him twice, that it was definitely for an S13, and I was told it was. I made it very clear that it had to be a bolt up affair, and I was assured it was.

It was delivered, and after spending a couple of hours taking all the stock gear off, it turned out that it didn't fit and was for an S14. :x

I emailed the seller who basically said 'send it back for a refund'. So, after wasting hours of my time, making my car undriveable, I was supposed to take time out of my working day to go to the post office and pay $60 to send it back to Perth...

I tried again with another sponsor, this time I decided to go with an ARC SMIC. I explained my predicament I had had with a previous sponsor, and he assured me it was DEFINITELY for an S13. Not only was it DEFINITELY for an S13, it was also BRAND NEW.

I paid him, and he sent it in the mail. I got a call from the sponsor:
"By the way, that was a typo on the website, it isn't new - but it is in good condition." Whatever.

It arrived, and it was in good condition. So I try again, this time thinking that I'll definitely have my car running by late tonight.

Not so.

It would appear that this intercooler is for a Stagea, not an S13. So I'm pretty much up shit creek again, and hoping I can get a refund from him.

All this is just fucking ridiculous. I seriously can't believe after paying so much I'm still at square one, all from people that are supposed to be trustworthy sellers.

Before anyone asks, I didn't want to cut a hole in the battery tray or hack up the front bar because I'm wary of defects.

...vent over!

:x :x :x :x :x :x

Well I try not to buy off them often, usually I get shit from Yahoo Japan, but freight is very expensive and it takes ages.

Because I was looking for something so specific I would have bought it from just about anywhere in Australia.

Pity I've been so burnt :(

That guy is a total douchebag, he took about three weeks to deliver some solid engine mounts to me.

Send him a letter of demand.

Name them.

They aren't sponsors here and if they don't know what they are selling they don't deserve the business.

Don't get me started on bad service and wrong parts.

Seeing as I drive a stagea,if you have time,shoot me a pm with a few pics of the thing and how much you want for it. we may be able to work something out.

I was interested in your S14 fmic to try and fit into the stagea... an smic FOR a stagea might be even better...


Justin...

The reason I bought the kit off him was id bought 2 sets of 40mm dmax guards off him for the 180 ages ago and he was really good so I expected the same this time around

im on the verge of flying down to sa to go and see him

Yeah race spec is a fuckwit, i waited 3 mouths for a new kit only eneded up with a refund when i called him a few times a day and emailed him a few times a day telling him he was full of shit and stuff.

Called up monkey in QLD 2 weeks ago on wendsday oreded a kit and it arived on friday, awsome service after dealing with tarek the fuckwit.

Most NS.com sponsers are fuckwits, but never had a problem with street dancer or cj motors.
