SFR shipped me my stuff quick, i only ordered 2 tuscani emblems though. i have heard rumours that they aren't so reliable on their big orders and their customer service is terrible, but for smaller orders i know they are great!

SFR is good just the shipping of parts can suck. Headlights especially just inspect them thoroughly and if there is damage to them Jay from SFR will ship out another one. Had this happen once but it was quickly resolved.

I don't know where Puerto Rico is but I'm in eastern Canada and i ordered stuff from them once and it took like 2 month to get here... So if you need your car A.S.A.P. I'd go with someone else, maybe find some second hand in the For Sale sub forum.

Dont scare me... I gave in into the F/L headlights and got some yesterday... Got an email maybe 6ish hours or so after paying that it shipped... Ive had a good history with them so far though, but I've never done a big order yet.

I got my angel eyes headlights from sharkrcing.com and it took a month or so to get here but still for the cost I got brand new headlights and angel eyes for 400 or something. Can't remember now. If you have to get new headlights anyways, go with them and get angel eyes at the same time. They wire them up for you.

There is both good and bad feedback with SFR. I just have you know I ordered my F/L headlights from them and received them in 19 days, shipped to Australia. So I was pretty thrilled with their service.

I think the best way to deal with them is by giving them an email asking all the important questions first (I do this all the time since I am from Australia, so much more can go wrong).

Usually I greet them, tell them I am interested in their quality products and then follow up with dot point questions like:
- Do you still have these items in stock?
- Are you able to ship them to (country, state, city) without issue?
- Can you provide an estimate on time and shipping?
- And any other concerning questions I have in mind regarding the product or their policies.

I tend to ask these questions even if most are already answered in their website because its very possible situations change and the website does not get updated. I then end the email in thanks and tell them I'm keen to do business.

What you could really gain from doing this is observe how long it takes to get a reply and analyze the quality of their answer. In addition I feel once they attempt to answer your question your chances of a successful order is more established. Finally, if you are not happy with their response or time then you can avoid risky business.

I advise this when it comes to smaller businesses like these mate. I hope this helps, good luck!

lol just be careful when dealing with him..he lost my buisness because he lied to me and wanted to scam me but i have had past experiences that were all good..i have been ordering items from them since 07 its just the last order he messed up bad and tried to cover it up and made himself look like a big liar ...i mean i understand why it takes so long and things happen but lies arent acceptable in my books

In my experience dont order anything big without paying extra for shipping or you might regret ordering from them. Import Shark is very good with everything that I have ordered. Good luck with whatever you decide to go with

Now see, when I got my current headlights from them it took like 3 months to get them since the CEO or something had to go personally get them and ship them to me after nothing happened for like a month. I was like wtf.. Am I that special? :)

I have ordered 5-6 times from SFR and always received my items. Shipping time is a bit long due the distance and can take something like 7-21 days. Bigger packets (headlights are fairly large packets) take more time usually.

I havent ordered headlight from SFR so I got no idea about that product.

Everything else I've ordered has been good except headers that were rubbish quality. It leaked through the sealings because it was cut uneven and the weldings were broken. That was annoying because it wasnt even the cheapest header SFR was selling. But I managed to fix it myself.

I have ordered quite a few things from Jay including the headers and cat and I have zero complaints. Most ppl always complain and say where are my items? Well you gotta think the stuff ships from overseas, so yea it is going to take a while.

I also had an experience like this! Ordered the 4-2-1 headers and he gave me free EMS shipping and I got them in less than 2 weeks! SFR can be good sometimes!
