Don't know what kind of luck your going to have with this Dan..I think Sandro has sold off most (if not all) his stuff.

Sandro sold a bottom brace to someone else after setting up a transaction with me. I got extremely busy and was away from home so it was a long time before I could make sure I didn't screw something up because my Paypal had the wrong address.

Then I saw the same part for sale again on Team Swift. I rechecked my paypal account for the transaction and he definitely has my money. :(

I would appreciate it if he would send me a refund but I can't seem to contact him.

Just got a set of 7 spoke rims and an aluminium rad from him. Great guy to deal with. Will definitely buy more parts from him. Has always been helpful.

I've had great business with Sandro, ordered a 210/340 chip from him and received it in a good time frame, but it was a Tom's II chip. So he sent me a 210/340 chip for only the cost of shipping! Would easily deal with him again.

A couple of weeks ago I bought a performance part from him.

Everything went good!

No problem at all.

Thanks.

i had lost the receipt. i finally found it, punched in the tracking number and it said the product was successfully delivered on June 18 at 11:40. If anyone would like to see for themselves they can look up the tracking number on the canadapost.ca site themselves.

0102 4730 0051 8511

We'll try and work this out, but it was no fault of mine why he doesn't have the package in his hands.

It took two years, but Sandro finally refunded me.

To be fair, I was busy when we did the transaction and it probably took me 6 months to figure out that I'd never received the brace. At that point, while I did post here a couple of times and PM, I didn't exactly hound him to get my money back.

I have tried to email Swifty92 multiple times regarding the Chip I never recieved from him, I ordered it 5/31/13...as part of the 2nd annual spring sale for his chips...

Has he fallen off the face of the earth OR did I get shafted? I see he logged on last 9/26/13...

I always thought he was a good guy around here???

Continue to bother him. I'm sure you'll get it, but also keep in mind that you're posting in a thread that is a warning about his business practices. He's a busy guy, but he usually comes through.
