Opinions on ProbeGarage

I am new to the probe scene. And I really dislike the whole buying on line thing.

But this probe garage has some really outstanding prices.

So I would like to hear some opinions on this supplier.

Feel free to send them in a PM or here in this thread. But there are some parts that I need now and they have them but I need to hear the PROs and CONs.

thanks

Newbie

I ordered from them a few times. He's a real nice guy and I've been satisfied with the products and everything!

Spent almost a grand on parts from him in the past few weeks. Great customer service.. got everything pretty quick and just as he said. He even called me up to straighten some things out.

2 thumbs up.

Ordered even way back when it was Racing Extreme. I wish I could spend more $$$ w/ Matt, but unfortunately other things come 1st. Awesome guy, always easy to get ahold of. Shipping is always timely, awesome prices. all around.

I've placed a few orders with Probe Garage. Matt has a great selection, great prices, and quick customer service. I've never had any problems with any of my orders there. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him again.

1st time with this vendor, I just ordered and now am waiting for it to come it. Everything went smoothly so far. If PG is great with getting the order packed and shipped out (TBD) then I will be very happy.

When I ordered, he had CRAZY good communications. Outstanding!! Was out of one item, so he substituted up to a better, more expensive brand to accomodate.

All that PLUS he had great packing and fast shipping. If there were an award for Vendor of the Year, Probe Garage would be it. In fact...I'm heading there now b/c I need some more stuff.

Have bought a few things from him, great seller, great prices, great customer service. By far the #1 vendor on probetalk! I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him.

Yep, got my stuff, I choose 2-day shipping but the shipping system miscalculated due to a free ship offer of an item, but he sorted it out quickly and had it shipped out the same day I ordered.

Great service, quick shipping, excellent communications, and fair prices. Definently on my list for future parts!

I've always had good experience with ProbeGarage too. Another part of the $1000 spenders club. Good communication and quick shipping, and most importantly, QUALITY parts.
