« on: April 06, 2008, 08:54:22 PM »

I found this site:   http://www.car-stuff.com/

I called the number and asked "do you carry the crossover pipe for the turbocharged Mclaren Grand Prix?"
they said yes. including shipping and handling it's $60 bucks roughly.....wtf....this can't be possible.
somebopdy want to snap me out of this daydream?!?

I know it can't be true, but what if...

Very unlikely. They might carry the NA crossover, though. ;)

Yeah more than likely it's just the same story as most parts stores. They carry the N/A parts, and claim to have the turbo parts...like the radiator. There is not a single place in the world that makes or ever has made a factory replacement radiator. Sure people can custom make them, but every parts store says they have the turbo radiator and they simply cannot get it.

I just called them again, and said to please send me a pic of the "turbo cross over..."
so we shall see, I know they shouldn't be able to have any but, it can't hurt to check into it.
I'll have the pic today sometime, so I'll let you all know what happens.

DO NOT buy anything from car-stuff.com!!!  i ordered some KYB struts from them and they only sent two.  they swore up and down they sent all four and wouldn't do anything about it even though the UPS box they came in clearly listed the box contained two parts.  i had to go through a credit card dispute and thankfully won.  every time i called them on the phone i ended up talking to someone who could barely speak english and i got a different story every time.  buyer beware!!!!

I just contacted Walker.  That is not the correct.  I did however drop a bug in their ear that there is a real interest in this part.
