Default RELIABLE place to buy a GReddy Kit

Ok so here is my long painfully sad story of my greddy project. So buy a GReddy kit from NOPI and it comes with a FUBAR'ed acuater (sp) i send it back they said "we will send you a new one" well long story short 3 MONTHS later nothing so I am sending it back for a full refund and now want a RELIABLE place to buy my kit from. So all suggestions would be very nice. All I need is this freaking Kit. I have BOV, **** IC, 2.5" Tony Pipe, Bipes, Begi AFPR, Test Pipe, MBC, etc... so yeah.... HELP ME!

I've ordered from MVP
http://www.mvpmotorsports.com/merchant/index.shtml

And had a good experience with them. I didn't buy my greddy kit through them, but a SPEC clutch and flywheel.

Sorry to hear about your problems. :(

I'd go with Hopup Racing myself. There's a few threads about this particular topic, just go do an advanced search for "buy" in the Greddy Chat forum.

I'd suggest Raven Wing. They are a Miata-specific shop, and I've dealt with them many times in the past. My Greddy kit arrived without the AFPR, manual, sticker, and a host of other things. They were great about making it right.

Well, "A" as in Auxiliary, not Adjustable. I forgot that the term has a more common meaning here. We'll compromise and use the official Greddy terminology of SFPR. (Secondary)

Yeah, I was pretty bummed about the kit arriving without parts. Ironically, I don't actually plan to use any of the pieces that were missing, but since I live in the PRC I need the sticker and the regulator to give the appearance of CARB compliance.

But Raven Wing have been really great about dealing with it. They’re a fairly small shop, who deal only in Miatae, so every time I call I speak to a reasonably knowledgeable person who actually cares. That’s why I chose to do business with them, as opposed to one of the big rice supermarkets, even though they were slightly more expensive.

Default Greddy

Well I'm also about to buy a greddy kit and i've been looking for decent places to pick them up. So far the best I've found has been sportcompactonly.com for about 1275-200 rebate. However, I hate rebates. Horsepowerfreaks says their greddy is 1318 at the moment. Anyone have any opinions on sportcompactonly?

I didn't know they had a shop, I thought they were mail order only. That's good to know.

I second horsepowerfreaks. I got my greddy from them over 3 years ago and at the time they beat everybody in price. It was 1184 which was a steal back then. They matched the best price anywhere in the country. Same goes for my emanage which i got 6 months later!

Just give them an offer or get them to match someone else. Most of there stuff is drop shipped from a huge warehouse down south.

Cheers
