Default Tein H Tech. Price too good to be true?

http://www.autoanything.com/suspensi...8A3948692.aspx

they seem a little cheap to me for being a brand new product. heard there are a lot of fakes out there.

anyone?

Go to the vendor directory and to talk to Charles at B2 Auto Designs. The specs on that website are way off. The H-Techs are a .8" front and .6" rear drop on the 350. I paid $250 delivered for my H-Techs.

Autoanything has been around for years. There's no reason to believe they would be selling knockoffs. The price is good, even better when you add the extra 10% off. The specs are correct (enter year, make, model). I'd say go for it.

Why are H-Techs more than the S-Techs?

The specs aren't off. Since you drive a 250 you can expect 1"/0.6" drop as stated on teins and autoanything's website.

Gold paint is that much more expensive than the green I guess.

I placed an order for H-Techs from AutoAnything on the 3rd. I received an order confirmation shortly after. Today, the 13th, I received an email from PayPal saying I was refunded the $169.49 order amount from AutoAnything. I was not contacted by AutoAnything prior to the refund. When I checked their webpage I found that the H-Tech spring price has gone up to $225.99 I'll be calling them tomorrow to let them know how unhappy I am with their customer service.

Probably a price mistake but if the H-Techs were $169 I would have bought those in a heart beat!

I just got off the phone with AutoAnything and they honored the $169.00 original price from my initial order. They didn't give me any problems when we were discussing what happened and the customer service agent Omar was very helpful.

So Autoanything is a legit and reliable place to order? I see $350 on other sites but on Autoanything it's around $200. Too good to be true. Makes me doubt if I should order it from here. If the price they stated is right, I will probably order it right away

Are you paying with a credit card or sending cash in an envelope? If it's the former there's a thing called zero liability. The cc company would cover it.
