Default 944online reputable?

Anyone use them often? Are they slow to ship typically?

Never had a problem in years of using them and they ship fast to me though I’m in the same state as they are. Also helpful over the phone and very knowledgeable, I’ve only had a chance to visit their premises once, tight boutique operation.

I liked them, when I had a 944.

They were the only or cheapest source for several of the things I bought.

If not 944online, Pelican Parts.

Very Nice Guy but on TWO occasions they forgot to ship my stuff, Literally created a shipping label and left it on their bench for days... Pricey, but if you need it usually they have it..

The same thing happened to me once. I don't think they're too pricey. Maybe 10% higher. But they have a lot of the more difficult to find stuff, so it's a fair trade off.

That may be what happened to me as well, I got shipping notice quickly, but it has been days with no tracking. I emailed them and have not gotten any response.

I did not receive good service from them. I much prefer Lindsey Racing!

I've always had good dealings with Ian, he is easy to get in touch with and very responsive.

They definitely know their way around the 944 and they stock a lot of harder to find items. They're a bit more expensive than other suppliers in general, but not drastically so.

I have ordered parts from them for years without incident. Whenever I need something, they are one of the places I check. Sometimes they are cheaper, sometimes they aren't, sometimes they are the only ones with the part.
