Default Evo-R... *sigh*

I've been reading a lot of bad things about these guys and their products lately (fitment issues, bad service, slow shipping, etc...)

I'm looking at rear diffusers but I've heard their carbon one fits like garbage and they have poor customer service... The price looks a lot better that $690+ for the fujimura though (shipped of course).

Can anyone give me some insight on these guys and their products? Did a search but it seems like the majority of negative comments are sporratically placed in random threads

I remember I bought my Fujimura diffuser for only a few bucks more than the evo-r one. ($30-50 difference)

The products are alright if you actually get them. Jay (Evo-R) loves taking money for products he doesn't have in stock, then he'll never respond to you again. If you must buy his parts, buy through the Z Store since you'll be able to get your refund when you never get your stuff. Also, AK banned Evo-R for taking people's money and not shipping products or giving refunds. Unfortunately, it was only a temporary ban.

Well that information right there is enough for me to walk away, sometimes a better price isn't always a better price I guess. Shame really, looks like they have (had) nice products for the price. but nothing pisses me off more than businesses giving me the run around and being totally helpless.

The authentic Fujimura is available for not a lot more than the halfass ripoff that Jay will "sell" you. Keep looking here. I know I've posted it before.

I paid $432 shipped from RHDJapan. Looks like it's even cheaper now at ~$380 shipped to the USA.

FUJIMURA AUTO Rocket Dancer Aero - Rear Under Diffuser Carbon Fairlady Z Z34 - RHDJapan

*They have a coupon that might work on top of it as well:
Holiday Specials: Limited time 7% discount off our best price. Coupon Code: HolidaySpecials2014

**Edit: And the coupon does work bringing it down to $355 shipped to USA. Cheaper than EVO-R!

That's an awesome deal! Was this for the carbon fiber or the FRP?

Great, thanks for this info! Has it arrived to your house yet? I always get weary of overseas shipping. What shipping method did you choose? I feel like that "EMS -Express Mail Service" would be risky. Cheap, but they probably don't give a **** about how fragile it is.

I ordered mine almost a year ago. Shipping was very fast from what I remembered.

EMS is actually very mainstream and used commonly. Nothing wrong with them and they deliver fast. My box didn't even have a dent in it.

whoops, see you added to that. Purchasing this as we speak because I'm bored at work! Glad I didn't pay almost $700 from Vivid
