Hey folks, im here to discuss my wonderful experience with Vivid Racing.

Ok i had got into a wreck a month or so ago. Well i decided on converting my 02 WRX to the new 04 front, since all the required pieces to replace were the ones needed to do the conversion. Well i decided on the Charge Speed v2 bumper, due to price and looks. Also to go with it were the low price JDM 04 headlights, cheapest Seibon CF hood, and since i needed fenders, the Charge Speed fenders. Well i looked around at different sites, and saw that vivid had the cheapest prices as well as shipping for the parts. mistake! I had talked to quite a few guys over there to work out a package deal for all the parts, and as a multitude of questions. For some reason their "package deal" was more expensive than if i ordered it off the site. After placing the order (from the site) 7/15/04, i was contaced the next day by them, saying that shipping was going to be somewhere around $200 more. why? because there site was some how messed up and didnt charge me the right amount. Ok, that was fine, not too bad. Well the day after the card wouldnt process, they dont take bank cards, that i believe was my fault. Used the credit card. Now they told me it was going to be a month wait on the hood because they didnt have in stock, though the people there told me they did. Ok, a month isnt too bad, basically two more weeks later than what it'll take to get finished. Ok a week or so goes by and i just get my headlights, i have to contact them for the tracking number forthe rest of the stuff, which they didnt supply to me (mind you, it takes them a day or two to reply). Alright 3 weeks passed since i placed the order, and i finally get the bumper and fenders. I contact the guys about the hood. next day they say it'll be there in a week, possibly two. Thats cool!...not really. A few more weeks go by, no hood. I email them on the progress of the hood, they keep saying it will be in cali in a few days, but still no tracking number. I email them some more and ask for a tracking number, no reply. Not until 3 days later when they get back to me, they finally get me a tracking number. Ok the hood will be here at the end of the week. Ok, never mind, itll be here the middle of next week. Well i finally get all my parts in from Vivid Racing 8/24/04. Forty days from when i purchased it. So its all gravy now, just gotta wait for the body shop to finish it. OH NO! wait! the hood has a crack in it, about 2 inches long! cuh-rap! Im trying to see what vivid can do for me now. But after that, this will be the last time i ever deal with Vivid. World One and Private For Sale Classifieds, say hello to your new customer!

Vivid is a joke. I tried to set up a wholesale account with them, the parts are costing me more than they would retail, with almost nothing ever being in stock. My local distriutor, Promotion, carries less parts, but still undercuts them every time. I especially love how their prices never match up to the one listed on the web page.
