1. We did not "jack up" the price on the engine cover prior to the group buy. Our product lister added the new higher priced Red Carbon Fiber Engine Cover as a new listing now that we had it made and liked how it looked. The price for the Red Carbon Cover is more (our cost is more) and the price reflects this. By error he also changed the price of the regular cover to match which he should not have done. It was simply an error that was up online for less than 24 hours and was quickly corrected. Our group price offer did not change. Just the list price had an error. It was fixed and we posted a quick explanation in our original thread.
2. There was no conspiracy of any kind as some may think. Our products are fairly priced. We have two walk in locations in which we have worked and modified a number of 4c cars and we are enthusiasts ourselves. A quick phone call usually will help to resolve, address or fix most issues without any drama. If you do not get 100% satisfaction simply ask for upper management. We have a great team that are truly there to help, so please do not hesitate to reach out.
3. As far as our company and the "other" company that was mentioned. Let's just say that each side has their side of the story and we will keep it at that. We make it a point to never bad mouth another company or another competing product.
Thanks guys for allowing us to clarify and mods hope this post is in line.
In Madness' defence, I actually walked in the store and introduced myself as part of the group buy. I was told they are waiting on the supplier to get back to them. I told them I know about the offer socal4c got and they showed me the $899 price they had it discounted to already. I highly doubt this was done out of the intent to deceive and more likely a mistake.
I understand how this can happen but Madness is a resource we have in Los Angeles with upstanding guys who are passionate about cars. Let's hold off accusations until things are final.
