    Fraud Warning.

    Recently member civicSiR1 claimed that he could get a set of Toda Fightex coilovers for 600 which included a camber kit. (normally 100-200 alone.) The ones that he was claiming to sell are the Type ST: (Seperate Tank) which retail at $3,380. So in otherwards, he was trying to give me a $2700+ discount. Sounded too good to be true. I asked him for a picture of them along with tons of other questions, he always found a way to avoid the picture question. To be even safer, I asked him if paying with Escrow.com would work, kinda gave me one of those, "i will try me best, you can trust me kind of things" I replyed, "this is a ton of money for me and i will only pay with Escrow."... no response.

    Also I asked him why he was selling them so cheap, he said that AKH was having a big promotion last month. I did some investigaing....

    Email to TodaRacing USA...





    Cliffs. Story sounds too good to be true, investigation proves that his Story does NOT check out. Dont buy from civicSiR1

    EDIT civicSiR1, if you want to defend yourself or tell your side of the story, go ahead, if you do not i will have one of the Mods put you on the Dont not buy from list.

    well before I receaved the email from Toda that this was bs, I asked him for his phone #. Today he PM me it and he did not say anything about this post, maybe he has not read it yet. I probally wont even bother calling him, even if he does have them, they are probally stolen, or else some APC coilover with a Toda Sticker on them :angry:


    If CivicSiRi would come clean about this, show proof that this sale is legit, I will edit and delelte this post and have one of the mods delelte this entire thread.

    umm not that this matters, but he spelled "wholesale" "whole sale"

    that is the correct spelling isnt it?

    if he was on the up and up.....im sure his spelling would have been too....

    wat a grate deel

    If you look in the Responce from TODA, they spelled it that way too, one extra space does not bother me but if he said stuff like, "DUDE, I will trow some Mad azz HeaderS in they're." That would made me put up a red flag. Basicly he sounded all professional and knowledgeable in all his respones except with all the... in .... his... respone when i ask...ed ....him why so ch...ea...p :)

    I sent him a PM asking what was up and a link to this thread, he has not reponded to it yet. I will give him untill tommrow or else i will have one of the mods throw him on the Hit list... i mean sellers to avoid list. :)
