Default *WARNING* re. d-werx.com aka porschedials Porsche gauge dials

I paid for a set of dials in June and have sent six emails to them to determine status of the order, with no response. I will, of course, reverse the cc charges, but want to warn others of a possible outcome similar to that I have experienced. Others may have had more favorable results, but from my experience ...

See post 38 below

I've been down a similar road, Sid ^^

Bad to have your time wasted. Worse when money's lost. Glad you can reverse charges.
P.S. You've got mail

Dear Mr Mancinas,

There are things that I have to overcome that are causing the problems so I am in the process of reorganizing my business.

I hope above makes sense. I'd appreciate your thoughts,

DO NOT ORDER FROM THIS COMPANY. They are blatant inconsiderate A Holes. How hard is it to respond to an email? This guy is full of shet.

This is the type of person that makes you want to visit him personally.

Wish I would have read this before I placed my order in December. Two emails and no reply. Time to do a charge back I guess.

Any other good sources for colored gauge faces?

I second this. Smells like a scam to me as well. Paid and then nada. Will inquire about charge back also.

Oddly, I did a search for porschedials yesterday and that website came up. I thought it was odd. I assumed there may have been a name change. Glad I didn't order anything.

I have a friend who does custom gauge dials for the Miata who I've been trying to convince to break into the Porsche market to do this. He has a stellar customer service record and really good products.

Maybe if other people were to pressure him...

I am also looking for a custom Tach face, was goin to order from D-Werk...
Looks like they have nice stuff, but if you can't get what you ordered...
What other options are there out there for custom gauge faces?

Thanks,
Dave

I called these guys at the beginning of last year when I was thinking about getting a custom tach face, http://www.nhspeedometer.com They were very responsive and answered my questions right away. Never ended-up following through with the modification, but they were recommended to me and local.

I have talked with NHS also, and agree great and local.
Problem is they only have limited gauge faces available and recommended FVD for some other options on the custom gauge faces.

I just sent a e-mail to D-WERK's both listed e-mail address and made them aware of this thread.
Hopefully will get an answer...

Also as a side note, I have talked to both NHS and PA-Speedo about fading pointers.
Both told me that there are none available new from VDO anymore.
Both told me that the later 993 pointers can not be re-painted.
Does anybody have a source for re-conditioning these pointers?

Thanks,
Dave

PorscheDials/D-Werks is an absolute SCAM. I had the same experience...answered emails immediately to take my money, and then wouldn't respond for months. I ended up filing a PayPal claim...which they never responded to, so I received my money back.

I highly recommend http://www.heiler-tachodesign.de/. They have pre-made color gauges, and can create custom ones as well. Here's the one they made for my car:
