Welp, Megan Racing pissed me off. After I ordered the coilovers on May 18th, the initial backorder was 3 weeks, so I expected maybe 5 weeks tops. It quickly turned into 11 weeks. And on Thursday, when the truck that the coilovers were supposed to be on finally came in... FINALLY... they unloaded it and coilovers were nowhere to be found. They made a few calls and the workers at the factory forgot to load them. The factory in TAIWAN! Now they said it'll be another 3-4 weeks and I said no. I withdrew my order. Now I'm looking to buy the BC coilovers, but I'll have to wait a little longer until I make the extra money..

On another note, I put a decal on my car today


I know it's gay, but it's just the right amount of rice and I love it! But that's it for decals... I don't wanna look like NASCAR. lol

Yeah you'd really think so. Over the whole course of those 11 weeks, Megan didn't offer me anything whatsoever. Not even a free coffee mug or something lol.

In all honesty then, if they did nothing to keep you as a customer, then it's probably not worth all that hassle.

I just was in it for the coils and how good of a price they were at. But there's just a point that something reaches that you don't care anymore, you're just pissed aha

I never had the clear turns, I bought the sidemarkers from a member on here awhile back...

Hope you find my car though, good stuff on it.

Just painted my OEM strut bar SSIII red. Kind of a useless mod, I know, but it looks better than the stock black. Plus it's a Thursday afternoon and I had nothing to do, so why not? I'll put up a picture later when it cures enough to install.
