Brian12 (Brian in Los Angeles) and I just concluded a sale for an Oval front clip. I'm a very happy buyer and can't say enough about what a pleasure it has been to deal with Brian. Throughout the whole deal, Brian provided great communication, honest information, and met the agreed schedule. He was also happy to work with me to get the clip delivered to a secondary location for shipping. It has been great dealing with a seller who stands behind his word. Thanks Brian!

Took 3 weeks to get my item. I would NOT recommend this seller.

2 weeks after paying for it (payed immediately after he sent me his paypal info) I e-mail Brian asking if it was sent out. A few days go by with no reply and I email again asking for tracking info because I didn't want to have to start a paypal dispute.

Brian e-mails me back telling me to not open the package, reject it, and he'll issue a refund.

Sorry, but after waiting 2+weeks for something i'm not going to test the waters and see how long it takes for a refund. Besides, why would I want to reject something I wanted and payed for?

Anyway, the item finally shows up 3 weeks after being payed for and I tell Brian i'm not going to reject the package because I obviously wanted it to begin with.

He responds with "It's people like you I hate dealing with.. don't ever buy any parts from me again..."

Don't worry Brian, I won't. If you would of told me in the first place it was going to take 2 weeks to ship I would not of cared. But don't flip out on me when I ask you for tracking info

Just picked up an entire fuel injection setup from him. He helped me pull all of the parts off the engine. Great price for everything. He brought out a air tank to let me blow all the spiders off everything before I loaded them up. He even supplied a box for me to put everything in. Nothing sketchy about this seller. Thanks a lot Brian!

I bought two Centerlines rims from Brian12 last week. We agreed on the price, shipping, and PayPal charges. Everything was great. Brian was really nice, but either that night or the next day someone came by his house and he sold the Centerlines to them. WHAT!!! I thought he was joking. I asked him why he sold the Centerlines that I had bought? He got nasty with me and said that it was too much trouble to send me an invoice and ship the Centerlines, but if I had already sent the money he would give me a full refund. What a jerk. I paid full boat, gave him every dime he asked for. Brain is a waste of my time..

Drove to LA yesterday and picked up a 1600 DP he was offering. Very cool guy, straight shooter. I put the engine in yesterday and it's running great! Thanks Brian. You will be hearing from us again soon.

I bought a Hurst trigger shifter from Brian12. It was in better condition than I had hoped it would be. He didn't send me tons of updates, but if I asked a question, he answered it in a reasonable amount of time. He sent it when he said he would and it got here pretty quick. I'm happy and I would buy from him again.

I bought a couple sets of carbs from him - they were boxed in an old used box that came apart, with zero packing inside. They were crashing around inside.

Will not be purchasing from this seller again - beware if he is shipping something to you.

Brian came up to purchase a vehicle. Showed up on time and with all the proper equipment he needed. Nice guy, paid the agreed price, he even found more stuff to purchase! Thanks Brian! Will continue to do business with him.

All I can say is AWESOME. I bought a 1600 for my daughters Bay and even picked up a 36HP he had lying around. His brother was there and I have to say he is a great guy! He started the engine and even answered all my questions. Brian responded to all my emails and answered as soon as I called him on the phone.

If you are looking for an honest seller and a straight shooter then talk to Brian he is your man. You will not be disappointed, I know I'm not!! Thank you Brian and PLEASE tell your brother thanks as well!!

Brian bought several engine gasket sets & bulk fuel hose, shared some stories about growing up in Los Angeles with VW's. Pleasure to do business with a Samba member that believes in keeping them stock.

Many Thanks-Brian
