Bought some of his Spring plate extensions. Got them way fast. The plates look like the are laser or water jet cut. Very nice product. The fasteners could use Lock Nuts with the nylon inserts, but i can get those anywhere.

We will see how they install.

Thanks Andy

Andy,

I'd like to hear from you asap. I ordered the spring plate extension on 10/26/07 and have not received the parts yet. the ad states 4 day delivery guarenteed.

I have sent you 3 or 4 emails now asking for the status or a phone call. Pay pay has long since cleared and have no idea what the status is. please let me know today.

I will email you my phone number right now.

I am having the same issues as Bulldog, ordered and paid for the extensions 1 month ago, nothing, not replying to my emails and I am being ignored.

Bad trader, stay away from him, I think he's obviously doing the shonky to a few people....I'm in Australia and most parts come within a week or 2, and have never gone missing, my guess is he never sent them and is laughing to himself and so I think I've been stitched!

I will be taking further action on this for sure!

BEWARE of this guy!!!!!!

I appreciate it, I kind of still need the extensions, but might use another avenue.

Perhaps a short note with the refund explaining what happened would have been nice. Maybe replying to my many emails would have been an idea too.

its ok, I just wound the car back up at the rear, it'll do for now and its less dangerous as being down too low. I'll get back to you when I wind it down again.

Thanks again!

Andy, to continue my service complaint with you, the pending refund through Paypal is still pending, a week or so later.....why?

Obviously you don't have sufficient funds in your paypal account for them to refund me my money....please make arrangements to put the money into your account ASAP as this is drawing out way too long now....and I'd just like my money back please!

EDIT* off topic.

I bought a pair of the extensions at a local show and I am blown away by the quality. They look excellent. I haven't installed them yet though.

Unless Andy has a PayPal balance (which is a bad idea in itself), PP makes all refunds via E Check, which takes a LONG time to clear. They just changed it to E Check from Instant Transfer one day out of the blue about six months ago. He probably found out the way I did- after he did the refund, expecting it to be an instant transfer like it always was before. Rolling Eyes

I guess they decided they could use the interest.

It was Pay Pal's doing, not the guy issuing the refund.

I didn't think you would mind the hijack (since I was getting your back, but I went ahead and deleted what I wrote.

its gone through...but I don't think he needs slandering or backing up by external parties, this is a buyer feedback forum to let others know of their experiences.

I'd be happy to forgive and forget, but I still don't know why I was told "your stuff is on the way", after asking why so long? Then no answer to emails for a few weeks asking about the product, to have a paypal refund show up....obviously my stuff was NOT on the way when Andy said.

Anyway, I'm over it, got my money back, just sharing my experience, good or bad, you can decide if you choose to use him!

I never slandered you, and he didn't ask me to back him up. I don't appreciate you implying either of those things.

I only piped up because I have also had crappy experiences with PayPal.

I would just like to add that I am very well pleased with the quality of the extension plates. I have had them installed on my bug for a few weeks now and they work great. I'll add that metric hardware would have been preffered, but it works.

The plates also add some additional room for alignment adjustment. I originally intalled the plates with the axles pushed all the way back. This provided toe-out. The car was all over the road. Jacked it back up, made some adjustments, and now it drives straight. This'll save me on some tire wear too.

Thanks Andy!
