Default The Tuners Group

Hi all and greetings from the US. I was wondering if you guys are familiar with this shop called The Tuner's Group in Australia.

From a web search it seems they are legit,but I wanted to confirm with you guys that they are a reliable shop. Thank you for any input.

Never heard of them.

Personally I would be concerned about

a) no telephone land line, only mobile
b) no ABN (Australian Business Number) listed on website.
c) PO Box address only
d) Terrible site design

Sounds like a guy operating out of his bedroom at his parents place.

^^^Good points. Glad I asked because I wouldn't have know about things like the ABN or even that the number is a cell. Thanks

They do list an ABN/ACN.

That said, I haven't come across them at Sydney circuit racing events.

They took about 2 days to get back to me. He said Monday (I think would be your Monday, maybe Tuesday) was a big Holiday over there in Australia (I searched and it was Queen's day on June 10). I emailed him and asked why he doesn't have a physical address (waiting for a reply). The reason I'm asking is that they have this really good deal on a Works Bell combo (wheel, hub, quick release) that I can't find here in the US. Even with the high shipping costs it's cheaper than anything I can find here.

They have been around in the industry for a while now. First I saw them was around 2008 or 09 when I used to have S15. I bought works bell quick lease and mate of mine bought works bell boss kit there. i can not remember exactly but they were reasonable with delivery time. Didnt have an issue.

Hi, you were very right to question THe TUners Group. I ordered something and wired the moeny (unfortunately was I so stupid). They never delivered any product, do not reply to my emails, nothing. In the beginning Adam was very helpful, explained everything in detail, to make you really comfortable, then he tells you to wire the money and you are done. This is a fraudulous company, do not trust them. Everything is a lie.

Wow! I'm sorry about your experience. That truly sucks. This is an old thread and I ended up not ordering from them. All I remember is at the time his prices were really good compared to other vendors in the US. In any case, I hope somehow you'll get your money back. Good luck.
