Brad at CarKing Tuning A++++ Service!!

First off, I just want to say Brad is one of the most responsible, and no BS sellers out there.

My experience:
I PMed him on Monday, asking if he can get me front splitters by Saturday. Brad, quickly responded to my PM and checked his inventory to see if he had the splitter in my color. He did, and he told me he would ship out the same day once payment received.

HE REALLY did ship out the same day! He is a NO-BS seller that gives 110% customer service!

What most e90post members don't know is that he ships from Taiwan. Taiwan to San Francisco in 3 days is just ridiculously fast. That's equivalent to USPS First Class/USPS Priority Mail (Domestic).

I havn't seen the product yet but I'm sure fitment is 100%. I've bought my ACS roof spoiler and OEM trunk spoiler from him and those were perfect. Paint quality is flawless!

Thanks to Brad! A+++++ Service!

he does have excellent customer service and shipping.I think my expectations might be too high but the products need some work.Splitters were decent and spoiler shape and paint match was pretty good but the spoiler was very wavy and bumpy and needs to come off.I think I might have gotten a bad one.Its going to be a pita to take off.I didnt notice it when I put it on.Oh well,Good guy though.

just got done installing the m-tech style rear trunk spoiler. took me about an hour to do.

if you're going to be using adhesive, i strongly suggest buying the bmw betalink adhesive. decided it was safer since bmw uses this stuff. also, it's it comes with beta-cleaner (to clean the surfaces, also works very well to clean off any betalink you may accidentally got on an exposed area). other stuff it includes is sandpaper to prep the back of the spoiler for adhesion and plastic putty knife thing to help spread the betalink.

since there is no diy for the spoiler, i used the regular oem spoiler directions as a reference.

brad had already included thin strips of double sided tape on the spoiler. i left it on. i took the beta link and applied it in between the two strips of double sided tape.

as i said earlier, the curvature of the spoiler is not totally exact with the trunk. i had to play around with the spoiler a little bit. in the end, i got most of down except for the bottom corners which is lifted a little.

service: A. brad has awesome customer service. even with his company located halfway around the world, he provides better service than some vendors located here in the states. the package was delivered super quick after he sent me the tracking number. he had good communication in the group buy thread as well.

quality: B+. the fit can be improved. as said, the bottom corners of the spoiler are lifted a bit. also, the "slot" area and the back part of the spoiler are a little wavy. that said, i think most people won't really catch it unless they're carefully looking.

paint: A. paint match is excellent. quality of the paint, clear coat, and cleanliness looks to be very good.

overall: A-. overall, i'm pretty happy with this mod. since i was getting a replica, i knew everything would not be 100%.

(the white looking pieces at the ends of the spoiler are actually blue painters tape.)

Ordered my combo splitter and spoiler kit on the last week of may and today is june, 20th and still have not received my products.....

I thought shipping would be a lot sooner especially paying EBAY price.

I will do an update once it arrives..

hey, nice to see you here.

your package is on the way and you will receive it soon.

about the prices between ebay and e90post, we price our products differently in this 2 place. we wanna offer more competitive price for memebers here. I don't know you are the member when you bid my auction on ebay or I will tell you to join the GB on e90post. anyway, if we have chance to do business in the future, I definitely will give you a big discount.

thanks for your comment.
that is very precious for us.
we will find some time to fix the fitment problem
bascially, the PUR item is very flexible. very little lift at the corner could be solved by some double adhesives or glue.

about the paint, I will take care of the paint quality to keep every customer happy

Just Like brad noted he said I should be receiving the items soon...When did you purchase yours? And does your tracking # work?


Brad,
To be honest with you i am a little disappointed. Can't you credit me a discount now? I did by the combo and @ Ebay price...

The tracking work after the package arrive USA. I mentioned that in the pm.
after EMS send the package to USA, the USPS will take care of the package.
then you can track the package on line.(USPS site)

Hope it wasn't a kit. He basically ditched this site after his kit failed to live up to the "guaranteed fitment" claim. He did refund ppl's $ though, after a long wait.

Shouldn't have much issue w/those parts. Fitment problems were with the Aero lip he was selling. Regardless, you bought through Ebay so there's a bit more protection there. Good luck..hope it works out for you.
