I was in the first group buy for the carbon splitters and just recently got a spoiler from them. Sometimes replies are slow but they are efficient. My spoiler got lost in the mail(how often does fedex do that?) but insured it was and another one was sent out a week later. Id still buy from them again.

Fantastic seller. Had a minor issue with one splitter (apparently I was one of the only if not the only) and he replaced the splitters without an issue! I now have a beautiful blue set of splitters to be installed soon!

I give him a half thumbs .... if he gets me the Blacklines then full thumbs up. Can't bring myself to get anything else from them until then, felt jerked around a little.

the way he work is kinda different with everyone else due to he doesn't have the product in stock until the gb is close. that will cost a little bit times. everything else is good.

I bought some of his splitters 2 months ago. Fitment was not perfect (but acceptable) and the paint is now dotted with stone chips after only 1000 miles. As was said above, delivery can be slow because nothing is shipped until the GB is well & truly closed. My first and probably last GB.

I just checked with the April thread as well, and that was weird finding that they are not a vendor anymore, but I can honestly say that I am not that shocked.
They constantly say that they are going to do something and never follow up.

For example, the last thing that they said that they were going to do was to post up a DIY on the splitters install and they never did. The last post that came from them was on Friday that said "I'll post it tomorrow," when they constantly mentioned that the reason why everything was slow is because they don't work on the weekends. How are you going to post something on Saturday when you constantly say that you don't post on the weekends?
There was just too many little promises that were broken.

I am happy with the splitters, but it took fricken forever!
I think they will be back soon, but I could see the conversation with the admins and BAVDOM---"I'll give you the sponsor funds tomorrow, I promise!" 3 days later--"I'll give you the sponsor funds tomorrow, I promise!" Then they got cut.

I personally don't have exp. with Bav's products, well at least not yet. My splitters are finally coming this week due to a mixup in shipping. What i have noticed is that it takes FOREVER to get something. People who joined the April GB for the splitters are just now rec. them. That's about 3 months!!

The other thing i don't like is that they use USPS to ship and the tracking number is useless IMO. Mine still says that the shipping notification has been received.

Overall I think Bav does try to make good products, but there are areas they need to improve upon to become a great vendor. Customer Service, Quality Control, and being able to follow through on promises.

I think their membership expired since it's the 7/1 so I'm sure they just forgot to pay their dues.

There is a REALLY good reason why the DIY wasn't posted on Saturday, frankly the entusiast side of me wanted to do it, it had nothing to do with work.

The somewhat fantastical excuse is something users from the internet wouldn't believe so as soon as I post the DIY, I'll post the reason. Thanks
