Mods are monitoring the situation, but we have the same voices that members have when it comes to sponsors. Post your own actual experience. Not hearsay, not opinions built on hearsay.

Rennlist has been built on the idea of members helping members. This help comes in many forms including vendor recommendations positive and negative. Shared experience and knowledge are key.

Sorry for starting a flame war guys but he has been pulling this crap for 2 years. It bums me out every time I see another guy get screwed over. He needs to go.
...And I never meant to mis-inform anyone regarding what I thought was a Vendor who finally woke up and took care of his customers as I thought he had.
It's so simple to take care of problem issues if you refrain from being an A-hole.
As a 35 year Landlord, I put fires out ASAP - Always best to take a little heat and suck up to remedy a problem and not let it spread like a disease.

Dr Bob - everything I post is from first hand experience. It took me 3+ months and over 30 emails to finally get a refund from this guy. It ranks as the worst product I've ever purchased and worst customer experience I've ever had - and I lived in China for 10 years.

You will also see 600+ posts on the main thread about him. 9 out of 10 of them are customer complaints. Unfortunately he's figured out that bad press can sometimes generate good SEO.

If you are a moderator, I would ask you to act.

1. If you cant remove his sponsorship, then I would ask you to ban him from posting in the 997 forum.
2. If you cant ban him I would ask you to put this as a sticky post.

Thank you.

I'll keep an eye on the situation. There's no good way to "ban" a specific user from a particular forum, seems unfortunate sometimes.

In the meanwhile, folks are welcome to post their first-hand experiences good and bad with this vendor. IB is aware of the situation.

Bingo!
Or as I say problems unlike wine - do not get better with time.

Hello Eric, I just came back from a holiday trip and had the chance to find out whats going on with your order. As I suspected, we just sent you the wrong tracking number for some reason. Your tracking number is LX402126441ES

.
Sorry for that.

Best regards

The part is clearly injection molded, and not 3D printed, which is nice.
The finish is OEM equivalent or better. Actually perfect. It's a smoother finish than the Sport, PASM, PSM, PSE etc. switches on the lower console below the HVAC control, but not quite as smooth as the buttons on the factory PCM(Yes, there is a difference. I had never noticed this difference between the two finishes of the factory buttons/ switches before, but I'd never before inspected them with a magnifying glass and a high output light source either). The Temp font/ kerning and Fan icon are very clean, crisp, and well placed.
The fit is well engineered. No gaps or funny fitment issues. They snapped into place and look factory or better.
They are slicker to the touch than original, but I was expecting that as it's not a rubberized finish.
I can't comment on durability because I just installed them.
So, as it stands, I'm satisfied.


***If this isn't the case and "Clima" is an A-hole I apologize - From the recent positive posts I figured Clima turned their game around.


Hello Groovzilla, just FYI:

Obviously we send the orders to our customers... we just sent him the wrong tracking number by mistake. Is an error and we apologize for that, but is far to be called scammers!

You've been making "mistakes" for 2 years. You've burned all credibility with this community. Please take your business somewhere else and STOP posting on this forum.

Thank you for proving my point. Your excuses are so formulaic its a joke...

Macarbon or buy them from a 2008 where it’s molded, non-coated plastic and won’t peel.

With all the drama it might be easier to sell the car then buy another 997 with flawless buttons

Dear Climarepair:

There are quite obviously Rennlist members here who feel that the product that they received is unacceptable. Since you've felt the need to update the product to the stated "Revolution" level, it seems you agree with those members. Per your post above, these are but a tiny fraction of the total number of customers you've shipped them to. As a good faith gesture, kindly send those dissatisfied Rennlist members the new Revolution replacements. It's only a few sets, and the goodwill generated and shared here will help heal the wounds you've inflicted.

What say?
