ECS Tuning = terrible service, bad review. Zero stars.

I guess this is a bad review/rant thread. Well my car was misfiring in 3 cylinders and running very rich. Had it diagnosed, and needed new injectors. I was referred to the ECS Tuning website. They were selling the part I needed for 121$ a piece. I called the dealer, they quoted me $210. I decided the 2 day wait was worth it. Did 2 days shipping, and after 3 days, I receive an email stating that the part is no longer offered, and BMW has a new part number for the injectors. No big deal, they sent me a link with 2 injectors, one listed $110 and the other listed for $206, both with the same BMW part number, just different ECStuning part number. So I decide to call them, just to confirm which is correct. I did not want any mix up, since my car has been down for 4 days now. They confirmed on the phone that the $110 one was the correct price and that they can switch my order over the phone for me. Now once again I did 2 day shipping, on the 3rd day I receive the same email, stating this part is no longer available, order the $206 alternative. This was a HUGE waste of time, I just ordered the part from BMW for $210.

They should have informed me about the part on the day I ordered. Not when it was supposed to arrive to my address. Not once, but twice.

Next time, I will probably just order it from GetBMWParts. I should have, they have it listed for $191 a piece. I need it fast now, that is why I went to the dealer. GetBMWParts has always been very professional. I had the same issue with them before, and they offered free next day shipping when I contacted them. ECStuning, should have at least offered free shipping for the HUGE waste of time.

I would say avoid them, unless you really need to use their service.

sounds like a very bad confusion with their listings on that item. just wanted to vouch for them though, theyre my go-to place since 07 when i got my car. never had a problem with any of my orders, and they have some of the best prices on parts.

Best thing to do is find the latest greatest part number on realoem.com and plug that into whatever system you are ordering, your not paying full msrp so you have to do at least a little work.

Yes, I knew I would have to "do a little work" which I did. I called them up the second time, to make sure this was the correct part after also researching online, and calling a dealership to get the latest part number. And still wasted another 3 days.

The last two injectors they told me I can buy had the SAME BMW PART NUMBER, but different ECSTuning part number. So they had a mix up on the prices. Hence, why I called to confirm.

Well, it is all done now, next time I will just use getbmwparts, since they seem to have the best prices anyways.

Ecs seems to always have a problem with outdated parts and pricing. On two separate occasions I wanted to buy a part at their currently advertised price only to get an email from them saying that was the old price and their new price was higher

We perform constant maintenance on our parts catalog, but are unfortunately at the whim of BMW when they update pricing and SKUs. BMW has a bulletin out now regarding this injector update, which had left some customers temporarily without a needed part. I feel your pain. We strive to provide up-to-date order information on a consistent basis, and you were contacted immediately once we received notice of the pricing update. I apologize for the delay in your order - if there is anything else you feel we could have done, please don't hesitate to contact our customer service department at 8009245172.

My main problem with them is that they dont keep up with their emails as they should. They have good prices, but come on now. Most of their orders come from on-line buyers. Better customer service should definitely be provided.

Wow that's odd. Never had a problem with ECS Tuning, I've ordered from them a few times.
