Long story but I bought from tdi_upgrades located in Michigan, it wasa17/22 turbo for my alh and I had sent it back to him for repair in June. Several emails and months later he is very flakey. Any help would be appreciated.

It took a while to get a response from him after repeated contact attempts on my part but eventually it was dealt with to my satisfaction. I did get PayPal involved in the dispute.

I finally got PayPal involved also, I had friends message him questions about parts and they get a response right away, I would leave several emails and I get crickets. I originally bought in May I sent it back right away and here it is September.

I had dealt with him a couple times in the past with acceptable results. He had expressed a goal of having a shop that customers could walk into, as far as I know that did not materialize. He exists, with a nice large barn, he never returned my more recent calls for parts. It’s my assumption he makes good money at a job that keeps him busy and doesn’t have the time to to invest in a business, , so I haven’t bothered attempting to deal with him anymore.

I have bought other items from him before this and they came in and there was good communication, after this ordeal is over I will never buy from him again.
