    Buy at your own peril!

    I've never heard of them and looking at they're stuff, I can see why. It looks cheap and tacky and the website is fraught with issues.

    The other thing that worries me is their contact address is listed and shown as a home address in Wembley, a leafy suburb. That tells me that this stuff is not made in the UK and therefore, does not have to conform to the strict UK manufacturing processes and quality control.
    Click on their 'Contact us' link and have a read! Its hilarious. If you want to contact them you'll have a choice of 6 email addresses
    They also say that all parts must be test fitted first before being painted! This roughly translates to...

    "We cannot be confident that our crap, cheap, terribly made parts will actually fit your car. In any avent, please don't hesitate to contact us for RMA on any one of our six email addresses and eventually, one of our team in China (who doesn't speak a word of English) might reply to you.
    If you require a refund, good luck with that too as the owner, who lives in a 4 bed detached house in Leafy Wembley, London worth around 1 million pounds, has already spent it and on holiday in Barbados!"


    ...and lastly, the website is not secure as their is no http:// prefix before their web address. You will have no idea where your personal information is being stored and what they do with your card details.

    Seriously, I'd take a wide berth!

    Oh my their T&Cs are funny

    They also say they don't stock items and they state (a few times) that they don't sell socks?!?
