Euro Headlights - Import Visions / Socalvwaudiparts

This is for future buyers who find this thread. Do NOT buy from Import Vision Motorsports Importvision Motorsports , Lighting and Accessories for European, Japanese, and American Vehicles - SOCALVWAUDIPARTS .COM - IVM LLC IVMAutolights - Specializing in Automotive Replacement Lighting

They haven't provided me a tracking number in 3 weeks since I ordered my headlights and now they have gone silent. After some further research, I found that this seller operates under several storefronts and has locked his feedback as private, always a red flag. I am filing a claim with Paypal but this is certainly no way to operate a business with integrity.

He invoices outside of eBay as ivm1 with email address ivm1@msn.com
They list this address which is at a strip mall in Simi valley:

Import Vision Motorsports LLC
Ken Brooks
108-2235 First St
Simi Valley CA
93065-1984

Other info:
G, Alex importvision@aol.com
PO Box 940988
Simi Valley, CA 93094-0988
US
Fax: 805-306-1695

So just beware....

Further update on Import Visions: turns out this guy Ken is shady nine ways from Sunday. He puts up several storefronts on ebay and is in trouble with paypal on a couple of his accounts.

Beware of him doing *business* as : EvolutionUSA , SoCallightingUSA, socalvwaudiparts and of course Import Visions.

I just settled a claim with paypal and was able to get my money back but my advice is stay far away, I was lucky!

Hm...
I can read the feedback, it's not locked from my eyes. It's current and his ratio is pretty good.

If the guy has a shop in a mall, and you live in so-cal yourself, why wouldn't you just go there and talk to him if you had an issue?

McPhee,

Feel free to do business with whomever you please, but before you besmirch my comments do your homework! I have never said a disparaging word against anyone and I am not the only person with a similar experience with this vendor. Maybe things will work out fine for you, but apparently when their system has a glitch, this guy is a real A$$hol& to deal with, dishonest I would say. I frequent this site and would like others to warn me if they had such an experience with a vendor!

Just bought a set of w124 Depo's from socalvwaudiparts.

Flawless transaction fast shipping, exactly what I was expecting.

Cheapest price on ebay to my door.

My ebay message exchanges with Laura were fast, courteous, helpful and accurate.

..just saying.
