Off topic but why can't they do your springs, theres still 2 weeks to go?
Apex springs. They are "unsure" of the waiting time for them.
They don't stock or handle many other brands, and none that do stilo springs.. damn them.

Re: stilo and aftermarket stereo

I really wanted Apex but I also wanted the car lowered for Donny. I went for them Spax as they only had a three day delay. The bloke at Apex did say 2-3 weeks though. I may still get them at a later stage.

Are they spax adjustable?
if they are they're realy good.
I coud've paid an extra bit for some Koni adjustables, but it was already really kinda outta budget...

Re: stilo and aftermarket stereo

These springs were a £100, fitting £80. The Apex will be the same again but you know when you just gotta have something?

hell, yea I know that. Im not suer how well rated Apex come, the place i got mine fitted have a good rep for quality (if not also over pricing) and they only use apex really... I was wanting some Eibachs, but the few places I went to get a price told me they didn't do for my car (obviously in error) so i couldn't get a price.
anyway.. i just hope they get in some time soon.

Motorsport world, what a bunch of clowns. Two weeks after ordering my springs and they finally admit that they haven't shipped them. They gave me three dates for delivery and fook all turned up. I called them today and asked why they had lied on 3 occasions. They think that by apologizing it's ok to bullsheet. Demanded a refund so I could go to a professional outfit insted of these pricks. Be warned, amateurs.

Unicar, assured me on Tuesday they'd been ordered, but would get the "technician" to call me back for the booking time. No call back, I called them on Weds, they say "oh, right well i asked him to call you, i'll get him to call you and i'll stand over him"
Weds evening, a "technician" calls, if you can call tomorrow and ask to speak to phill, we need to details of your car.
I call today, "Phil" isn't the technician who booked my car, but he takes my car details. and then arranges to call me back to make a booking. no springs have been ordered. and they never called me back. well done unicar. :bang:

europerformance.co.uk to the rescue, Just ordered Eibach springs (30mm) and a guarantee that they will be here by Monday. Can you believe a company called topgear said that no manufacturers make springs for the Stilo yet despite me arguing with the yamyam that their website says otherwise.

WTF is going on with customer service in the UK?
