KFX Performance order

I posted here when I was brand new to the site asking if KFX was for real. So, I thought I should post now that I've bought something there. I ordered the carbon hood lip on Monday I think, and it arrived today. Good service, good communication, and the part is super cool.

Thumbs up!

That's good to hear. Do they come from overseas or do they have a US distributor?

Chaulk that up as the first positive thing that I personally have heard about KFX. Anyone else?

I got my front sway bar about two weeks after I ordered it. Turns out it was a different bar than the one shown on the site. For 85 bucks I'm not going to complain, but they need to get their shit straight. Needless to say, I'm not gonna buy from them again.

My lug nuts require more torque than your VTEC makes.

I wasn't super happy with the quality of the part, and on the StreetKiaz forum, the owner of KFX posted and said "ya, Seibon quality isn't that great, but they're the only ones who make it (or words to that effect...I'm too lazy to get the exact quote).

Um...I don't remember reading anything on the web site where I bought it that said "these are not good quality." Pretty lame.

I'm afraid to buy any real parts from them now. If you notice on the site a lot of the cam gear kits and pulley kits still don't have proper descriptions. They still say something along the lines of "This is a trial product, we only have one, we will make more if there is a demand". Some of those products were introduced on the site more than two years ago. This aspect paired with how my previous order went, I'd be afraid to use anything mechanical from them.

Ya, after buying the part, then being told after the fact that the Seibon parts aren't all that great pretty much cured me of ordering anything else there. I don't remember reading anything on the web site about it not being that great before I spent $100 on it.
