now i brought a big 50mm full alloy radiator from ASI_PERFORMANCE.

now the radiator itself failed after a bout 1 month use.
so i msged them and all good they spoke and said yes theres a 1 year warranty. after a bit of stuffin around they send out another radiator.

same issue. after a month it has now failed.
so i went to send them a msg being a bit unhappy and somehow i have been blocked from messaging them??..
now i cant talk to them and as the listing closed more than 45 days ago im fuked..
just to let everyone know DONT BUY FROM THEM!!

link your bank account to your paypal account........... it may take up to 5 days for the money to be transferred whenever you buy stuff but at least your protected

at first i despised paypal, but now im loving keeping the sellers honest, whereas before the only way to see a cent was numerous phonecalls emails etc

re radiator: i normally dont look at any radiator unless it has at least 2 year warranty, these seem to give alot less headaches

Kinda serves you right for skimping on a 'crucial' part of a car.


you pay for what you get.

i dont like cheap alloy radiators, they just dont seem to last..
my first radiator was an alloy one from sss automotive and only lasted just over 12 months, my last radiator was a copper natrad radiator it cost a little more at $220 with 2 year warranty and it lasted 6 years, pretty good run i think.. so i recently brought another one..

if only their were a like button. i hate buy parts like radiators, brakes, bushes etc on eBay. at least if you buy it from a local store and it fails you can talk to the person face to face

I bought one must have been well over 12 months ago from ebay and I was able to pick it up. Good thing was it was from a radiator place (other side of town) but still at a very good price. Saved me a few bucks... (payed with paypal)

I try where possible to buy off a place thats in the same state and if there are any problems its easy to recify....

Do yourself a favour... Get yourself a Visa Debit Card....

I do all my rego, Ebay etc on that as it is a normal card but with a Credit Card number.....

yep, have a Visa Debit card made up so it draws funds from your regular banking account.
