My experience with ECS Tuning

I just want to share with all of you my experience with ECS,

I had an issue with a part a bought from them, and just a few hours after I wrote them explaining my problem they answer with a solution for me.

I think they have a great customer service and wanted to say thanks Thomas for helping me to solve my problem.



Thanks ECS, it was great doing business with you

They are one of my favorite companies to get stuff from. They have great pictures of a lot of common parts on their site, as well as I have also had good luck with their customer service. I was just ordering a $3 part one time, but they still took the effort to give me a call to tell me that I ordered something they didn't have in stock and helped me with my options.

I got my meyle hd control arms from them, they were the lowest price by a lot. Also if I didnt already have a UUC SSK I would have gotten the ECS kit in a heartbeat.

Been buying parts from ECS for quite some time, for my wife's VW. I especially like the handy 5-liter jugs of Pentosin VW spec oil.

Got the wagon, and noticed, "Hey - they sell BMW parts, too!"

They do have a VERY nice selection of oil.

ECS is always very fast on shipping my orders and can offer some great deals on merchandise if you are willing to look.

However, some constructive criticism:
The shipping costs are high. Very high, for items that shouldn't be high at all. The picture below is an example. A basic bubble envelope would have been cheaper for both parties. The box contained that one part.

I've been impressed with ECS as well.

I placed the order for my FCABS with ECS in the afternoon, I believe it was around 3:00. They were delivered to me at 10:00AM the next day!

That's because you're like 90 minutes (at the most) away from them.

I've never had a problem with them. Ordered from them way back when i had my Audi. People stayed away from them after they had a credit card fiasco...charging people's CC randomly but that's 5-6 years ago. I actually just received an order from them last week.

Joe - you guys rock. I seem to be placing an order every two weeks with you. Always have the parts in 3 days. No one else touches that.

BUT... I think you should just thank BMW for all the orders and your customers for being educated shoppers.

Cheers
Matt

I bought the M3 rep. bumper, and one of the fog lights was broken. there was clearly something that punctured the box. I sent them a picture, and they had a set of new fog lights for me a week later.
i also really like chat function. very helpfull when your not 100% sure on a part.

My Ride: makes my pants tight
I also find their service and part selection to be above the typical bar.

To be nit-picky, I agree with the gentleman who said sometimes their packaging/shipping is a bit much....that is about the only negative, so if your listening ECS...work on that if there is room to do so.

Also....how many local folks would be up for an actual store front you could shop at/pick up your parts at?! Even with fast shipping, I sometimes REALLY rather just drive 12 miles then wait a day...:)

I'm not saying it has to be fancy, maybe even just a setup where you can order the parts and know about when they'd be ready to pick up at a simply counter/receptionist setup...

I've driven past their offices out of sheer curiosity. It's kinda off the beaten path. Pretty non-descript building with plenty of VW's up front and a door.. that's about it. Ohio probably isn't the place for a german car part retail store, but it would be nice.

Yeah if you get something that is a decent size, then the packaging is spot on and perfect. Like my SSK (which btw is worth EVERY PENNY):
