Edit:

It seems that Sandro has been collecting money, not shipping parts, and not answering PM's, or emails.
This will remain a sticky and warning until the situation is corrected.

I'm suprised I hadn't posted some feedback for Sandro before.
Absolutely no issues with him at all. Dealing with him is trouble free. How much do I trust him? He's driven my car without me in it :mrgreen:

Well, I just closed a deal with him myself and he was very easy to deal with, good prices and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again!

Ok, I dealt with him a couple of weeks ago and I must say he is a good and trustworthy person to deal with. The product I bought came very well protected! He had a lot patience also.
It's not a problem to deal with him again.

Alessandro sold me a set of 4 GTi springs and a set of side skirts. All descriptions of the goods were 100% accurate to a "T". He was very fair in his pricing and took great care in packing my parts for the journey from T.O to Calgary. I will not hesitate to deal with him again in the future.

Has anyone seen or heard from Sandro?

I cant seem to get ahold of him on the PM's. I'm waiting on some stuff ordered.

Thanks,
matt

Do you think I should be worried? This deal has dragged out for quite some time....

Or is this just how it works sometimes with Sandro? I understand he goes without computer access for periods of time.

I'm not freaking out about how long it is taking to get my parts...just wondering if there is any chance he is leaving the board and running with the money....

I dont know what to say about the chip I recieved from him.I was told a Higher RPM cut off limit,but turns out to be wayy lower than what expected? I have talked to other owners of the chip and they stated it went higher than what Mine did. I noticed really NO difference between Toms chip and this one,and we(Sandro and I) had litterally the same mods. I have shown this Vid to a few people and They agree something isnt right.
