    Modbargains Shipping Delays?

    Has anybody here ordered from Modbargains recently?

    I decided to pull the trigger on a set of Sportline 8s wheels; placed the order on March 2nd. Almost immediately afterwards, the general manager emailed me to say the shipment was due mid-March, and the wheels would ship by the end of the month. My credit card was charged in full on March 2nd. It's now April 2nd and I have not received the wheels, nor an update on the status of my order.

    I emailed the general manager last Friday and have not received a response. I'm on the fence relative to calling & cancelling the order.

    Anyone else have recent experiences with them?

    I emailed the owner of Modbargains.

    Wish I had seen that thread before I ordered.

    704sw ordered his from them and didnít have any problems so I figured it was safe. I donít mind waiting a few weeks for something, as long as I have a definite ship date.

    Do you have a relationship with them?

    I drafted an email to Alan Wei, ccíing Ron Hay, but I havenít sent it yet. Figured Iíd give Alan the benefit of the doubt first - i.e; maybe he wasnít in Friday and hasnít got through all of his weekend emails yet. Iíll hit Ďsendí in the morning so it doesnít get lost in tonightís emails...

    Iím going to move pretty quickly on this if I donít get a concrete ship date within 24hrs; Credit card company is on speed dial and Iím going to dispute the purchase because this is starting to smell fishy. Most retailers wonít charge your credit card until the product ships.

    i just looked them up on the BBB and see that there were a few complaints from 2013 and 2015.

    By last Friday, I guess I was assuming the Friday (before last). I would say give it a day or two.

    I'm not super supportive of the whole "let's charge the guys account even though we don't have the product" idea. For a month.

    Please update this thread when you receive a response.... Positive or negative.

    Thank you

    Will do.

    I just finished reading through that other thread, and while Iím happy for them that it was resolved, Iím not waiting five months to get this figured out.

    Modbargains doesn't have a great reputation and has been banned from several forums. I liked their lightweight Sportline 8s CSL reps and decided to give them a chance. Pre-sales was great. The guy I was working with knew fitment, and we discussed how aggressively I wanted to push the wheel/tire width. I ended up ordering a wheel and PSS tire combo, road force balanced and shipped to the door. Excellent up to this point. I mean, I was thinking I couldn't be working with the same company with the negative reviews. While I had the wheels off, I thought it was the perfect time to wash, clay, and seal them. I quickly realized the finish wasn't perfect on the new wheels. I had areas that were glossy and slick as glass and other areas where it looked like there was no clear coat or clear coat overspray and the texture was rough. I took photos where the front of the spoke was glossy and the sides were dull and sent those to the rep.

    I'll not go into all the details and back and forth, but I'll just put it this way about MY personal experience with ModBargains. They are like fair weather friends. When things go as planned, they are great, friendly, good communication. When there is a problem that will cost them money or cause them to break even, they turn their backs. My rep supposedly went up the food chain with my issue and I was promised they would make it right, but they never did a thing. In the end, I took care of it myself, and wrote it off as experience/lesson learned.

    Thanks for taking the time to share your experience.

    Now I wish I had asked the question before placing my order. Hindsight is always 20/20.

    Maybe others who are thinking about buying from Modbargains will read this thread.

    Unbelievable. I hope Mike Brown visits this thread and responds to me appropriately via email. I'd like to hear his explanation.

    I have been in contacts with Elliot. I too ordered Sportline 8S's, and Elliot said he believes they came in today. I assume your order would go under the same rule. When I placed my order on the 26th, I was told the wheels were on order to come in this week. If I don't see them by the end of next week, do you know anywhere else Sportline's can be purchased? I thought I looked everywhere.
