    Default speedtech closing?

    Iv been on holidays in BC for two weeks, a couple weeks before I left I had ordered a CF trunk lid from them. When I got home last night I had atleast three messages from speedtech informing me that the trunk was in, the last message saying that they are closing indefinetly and they really want me to get my trunk lid.

    I'm surprised there isn't a thread on this already. Does anybody know anything?

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Yeah, but that message was on the 10th of august. I'm worried that I won't be seeing the lid.

    How could they just close like that?

    No explanation?

    Crazy how so many people in the city fly their flag at no charge and are dumped on the proverbial side of the road with no warning.

    I would suggest you PM speedtech and make arrangements before you're SOL.

    I would also check your cc statement as most pre-order items were refunded directly back to the credit card with which they were purchased.

    Yesterday was in fact there final day, thanks for supporting the scene all these years STRD.

    ....So why wouldn't they say something on beyond about this?

    Soo many people supported this company(from who I have dealt with there I have no clue why) and they don't have the decency to tell their supporters they are closing doors. Time to peel the stickers off your cars everyone haha.


    Atleast they supported the import scene in Calgary for a few years...I'm sure another store will pop up soon.


    Talk about closing up shop and running....but did this have anything to do with the whole home invasion ear chopped off thing?

    Not very nice to close with no warning... But oh well. You gotta do what you gotta do. Thanks for all the help the past couple years Jackie and Paul.

    The way the whole home invasion ear chopped off thing keeps not only getting brought up, but disappearing from the threads makes it pretty obvious its related to someone on here or at least the people who keep doing the outright denial know a lot more than letting on.

    But in regards to Speedtech closing ... good riddance, never have I experienced such a stuck up group of ricers. The way they closed up shop without notice, screwing over customers is a great portrayal how they did business the entire time they did manage to operate.

    Its an unsustainable business anyway. Why should I buy parts from them? I know how to use the internet, I can get the exact same parts except without the markup. Plus, they get delivered to my front door!

    I'm going to have to disagree with you here...

    since i bought my car in 2007 iv purchased tires, rims, coilovers and exhaust from these guys. every time i was in there it was short, sweet and efficient. my mom even went in there to pick up a set of tires for me and when she came home she couldnt stop talking about how kind they were to her. will was always very helpful over beyond and would reply to PM's regarding products and stock immediately. i always had a lot of questions and never once did he get overwhelmed or annoyed.

    depending on how they handle my situation with the CF trunk lid, i'm sure they will be missed.
