(WARNING) Dont buy from Riss Racing!

I recently purchased ram air scoops for my e90 from Riss Racing and was never given the product. I called Riss Racing and complained and was told a new set would be sent out but never was. I was given a tracking number and called FedEx. They told me that they were never given the product and that i had most likely been scammed. Riss racing will not answer my phone calls nor will they call me back when I leave a message. I'm writing this so that no one falls into the same trap I did.

Nice first post.

This should really go into the vendor feedback board, where nla and I can fight it out in relative peace and quiet.

They are trusted on this Site, looks to be a misunderstanding. Hope you get it sorted out.

dispute the charge with your credit card company. You have every right to do that if you never recieved the goods. You did pay with your credit card right?

I just spoke with them via email about my intake. They responded promptly and took care of the issue. No way they are scammers.
