Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    Issues with CATuned.. Am I the only one?

    I've been pretty patient with this whole ordeal I've been having with Igor at CA tuned about my core return I sent in for the $300 refund they claim to give back, when you order a set of their welded coilovers.
    After dealing with half assed immature replies and my emails and phone calls being ignored I feel like making this something to be addressed to other members in this community.

    I ordered my set of coilovers about 4 weeks before Bimmerfest East 2015 (I believe around July 7th?) I had no issues receiving them, shipping was fast and product looked great.
    No complaints. A few weeks later I got around to breaking down my cores and packing them up and sent them to catuned via ups on 8/18/15. A week went by and I never heard any thing back about them or received any sort of refund for them. This is where it all begins.

    Wishful thinking anyways... In between all this I have called and talked to UPS; they had an investigation going for the package because as far as they know it was delivered

      So I called the shop today... Nobody answered my personal line... So I used my work phone... And a kid Nate answered only to tell me igor left early ...

      After he just sent me an email saying he'd be there until 6... I'm in Maryland 3 hours ahead... This was around 7:45 my time... aka 4:45 in Pacific Time Zone CA

        This guy told me to file a police report...

        Not to mention if I don't send an email with question... The issue would probably go ignored. Needless to say the coilovers will be for sale as soon as I get another set of suspension together.

          Couldn't get on the phone with me when I called earlier but here he is replying to emails...

          Apparently we don't have to go over this again and again because it's not his money am I right?

          You'd love to have the cores I'm sure, I'd love to have the $300 promised to me when I sent them to your shop...

            Man, they sure can give quite the run around. Sucks that he tells you he'll be available to call, then isn't.....but he can punctually reply to all your emails? And what's this business with the employee who signed for the package not working there, but the signatures match up with multiple other ones??

            but really, what's $300 to them, a 1/3 of a set of coils? To you it's prob a car payment or groceries for a month. Sucks that it's getting dragged out :/

              I've ordered numerous parts from CAtuned with zero issues. Hopefully this misunderstanding gets resolved quickly, because they have great products and have given me great cs.

                  No idea. It's all just weird very unprofessional .. Claims to run a clean, tight, no bs shop.. But can't find a package? At this point it's not about the money. The guy could careless, and it shows. I don't wanna support someone like that.

                    Igor is a good person at heart.

                    He's helped me out with my swap car when he didn't have to, nor did he know me very well.

                    Him and I did have a disagreement on parts once... He owed me $600 for some parts and a favor I did him and though it took nearly two years, many emails and texts, a third party that somehow involved themselves and derailed the whole deal, and then more threats from all parties, I'm happy to say that I was paid $500 total. At that point, I didn't even care for the full amount. I got most of it back and I wasn't going to fight for another $100.

                    Igor is cool, but you can't mix friendship with business, which was a mistake I made.
                    I like his shop, I like his crew, I like his products, I like him. But I've learned my lesson.


                    Best wishes to him and CaTuned.



                    edit: It's also important to state that I've purchased parts from him after our ordeal, and I've never had an issue.

                      sorry to hear this, I do not support them anymore just because simply how cocky and unpleasant they are. 300 dollars plus 50 to ship is nothing for them. Maybe an hour or two worth of labor. I would be doing everything single thing you've done so far, my next step would to probably just fricken gp off on them in person,(that's just how I am lol) but all jokes aside, this is the worst customer service I've seen so far through the e30 community. As owner and manager(Igor) he needs to step up and find out what happened to the package that was sent to HIS business and HIS employer signed for. Unreal man keep me posted on any updates... Good luck, I really hope they send you your money!!

                        Yeah I'm sure he is not a bad person at all. I Never had intentions of badmouthing him or the shop ya know? I bought his product, I fully supported the shop and brand.

                        I want to make it clear that theres nothing wrong with the coilovers they're great! no complaints on the product whatsoever! This isn't about that.

                        I just wasn't sure if this was a known thing about their customer service or if I was the first to encounter a bad experience from them. I guess i'm just used to people wanting to help and or at least show a little concern towards an issue like this. From the responses it seemed that this was trying to be swept under the rug and ignored.

                            There is always 2 sides to a story, but I'm truly sad to hear of this....... I like the work they do and their influence in the community. I always wished I was closer to have work done there. I hope this gets worked out.
