STOP buying crap off eBay!

We talk to a lot of enthusiasts and the number one concern they seem to have is QUALITY. This really isn’t anything new and quality is always something on any consumers mind.

In recent times the automotive industry (like many others) has been flooded with extremely poor quality products from countries like China. Products such as clear tail lights and gauges for example, are extremely attractive due to PRICE. You can find a lot on stuff on eBay that’s pretty cheap and I am sure many of you at some point have been taken in – myself included!

What we forget to remember is that price is generally an indication of quality. It’s like the old saying says, “YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!”

There’s also a few things that get forgotten in the decision making process when the price seems too good to be true and that is buying something is not all about the product itself. There is a lot to consider such as pre/post sales support, warranty and of course whether the item will fulfil your need or fix your problem to your satisfaction (in terms of quality/reliability).

It is important to consider the whole picture when making decisions. eBay is a second hand market, regardless of what the seller says. What protection are you giving yourself? It is a risk and one which I have personally seen burn many bargain hunters.

We often receive enquiries and phone calls from enthusiasts who have purchased something cheap off eBay which has turned into a nightmare either through product fault or non-suitability. One in particular that comes up time and time again is tail lights. We get customers comparing our pricing with the pricing on eBay for what they think is the same or similar item.

Yes our pricing on clear tail lights is more expensive BUT you are paying for a far superior quality product that comes with a proper warranty! If you have issues such as leakages it gets resolved. You don’t get stuck with an ugly water/mist filled tail light assembly.

This is just one example, there are many more. The point I am trying to make is STOP BUYING CRAP OFF EBAY! You love your car, your passionate about your car so why would you buy an inferior quality product that’s only going to make your car and your experience worse.

Look don’t take my word for it, here are a few testimonials from real customers:

“Recieved my order on Friday Morning at 9.00am. Your service was as speedy as ever. Also, I would like to thank you for the quality of the braided oil feed line for the turbo charger, it was better than another line i had previously had made up from Pirtek. Everything bolted straight on and was straight forward. Once again, thank you and look forward to doing buisness with you in the future.

Brenton Watts, NSW

“I have received my seats this morning. (Monday the 18th of April). I am very happy with the quality of the product and the service you have provided. I will be ordering from you again in the near future.

Mitchell Vine, QLD

“Dan was very helpful in evey aspect of the transaction. Outstanding service & great prices. Very fast interstate shipment, Quality Products & packaged safely. Highly recommended. AAA+

Chris Leermakers, VIC

That’s just a few I pulled out… there are many more you will see at – like I said don’t take my word for it, listen to the voice of our good customers.

I just wanted to make a note here that I am in no way saying eBay is no good… it’s the stuff you can get on eBay! That’s not to say it’s all crap but the point it to be careful! The whole point is when buying from us here at is that you can be assured we are selling you a quality item – because we wouldn’t recommend a product we don’t believe in ourselves!
