Have to agree ..

I received my MK1 Coilovers this morning - One week after ordering them. The items were exactly as pictured and in excellent condition (for 2nd hand) :clap:

If you are looking for the rare Suzuki Sport/Cultus/JDM parts this is one good source. Remember his prices are 'wrecker yard' - but cheap when you think of comparison to getting these parts in the first place and their rarity. Also he is always prepared to haggle (especially when buying multiple items .. :D just dont be silly with your offer!

Thanks strider.

I received my Cultus GTi cams yesterday. They are in perfect condition.
strider sent a lot of pics about them. He made pics when he measured them. These were proofs that the cams are original JDM cams!
strider sells quality goods, dealing with him is a very good idea if one needs some "exotic" parts.

Thanks brother! :wink:

I bought 300$ worth of glass headlights and fog lights and they arrived at my house broken. I was told it was only insured for $50 after the fact.

however, after exchanging messages with strider, it appears he is going to find me another set. I was heartbroken when I opened the box to pieces of broken glass :(

hopefully things work out

Finally I picked up Strider's (now mine :D ) SARD fuel pressure regulator...

Although the box was all fu*ked up, Strider packed it and secured it very well.
Also, he's patient, helpful and a good m8...

P.S. I paid 90 USD for never used regulator and shipping included... Also, I needed to pay 40 USD tax and customs tariff.
So I paid around ~ 130 USD and if I bought one on Ebay, this amount would be greater for about 20-30% for sure...


Thx Strider....
You're the man!! 8)

I've done 2 transactions with Strider. He is a stand-up man willing to work with you. I got some decals the first time around and this time I got a set of Cultus (hollow type) camshafts.

The camshafts are in very good condition! Packaging was also excellent!

He also worked it out and found me a faster shipping alternative via DHL.

Highly recommended seller! :clap:

Thanks!!!!

P.S. Did I say his prices are very good? Yes!

Bought some used pistons from Strider. Even though there was a few issues Strider worked with me to resolve them. I would buy from again. No worries

My complete Cultus intake manifold arrived today safely, was well packaged and just as described. Although it took a little longer than expected to arrive due to the Malaysian holiday season and Customs, Strider was always pro-active with updates and tracking numbers etc...

A pleasure to deal with. 8)

Cheers,

Drew (and Lil' Suzi)

well, times may have changed with this seller. I purchased an intake and exhaust manifold from him before. Shipping took about a couple of months by sea. The goods are not as shown as the pictures.

With this latest purchase, I insisted on air parcel and he confirm the shipping time of 2 weeks by air and paid for a set of cultus pistons back in April 02, 2012, he said it was sent but posted a tracking number that does not exist in the malaysian postal service data base.

I waited for them and exchanged private messages until July 14. Did not receive the goods. Strider considered refunding but I asked for another set to be sent around July 14. The second set was supposed to be sent around July 25.... Still haven't received the pistons. If they were sent by air I should have it now. I did not get a tracking number.

I generally like to give people the benefit of the doubt but 5 months?!

If you buy from him, insist on air parcel and if you don't receive it within 30-45 days put in the claim through Paypal.

That really sucks and I am sorry to hear about your delimma. I always insist on trackable shipments; either DHL or FedEX for items over $100USD.

Tracking doesn't provide any valuable service if something is lost. Insurance is what you need.
