Ebay: H. Tech Spings for real, or just imitations

I was just wondering what you guys might have to say about buying a set of H. Techs off of Ebay. If you have any other worthwhile websites for the H. Techs I'm open for suggestions.

Here's the link . . .
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...spagename=WDVW

Any help is appreciated ,

The Best

if I had to take a guess, I'd say that it's BULLSH!T

the H-Techs aren't even green, they're goldish looking, I say don't get 'em from there dude and if you do, make sure that they're DEFINITELY H-Techs

you don't wanna buy springs jsut to save a few bucks and get the wrong ones you know.

Good luck.

guy seems to be a shop, must have the pics of stechs up, but would very likely have the htechs in stock as well.
go to their website and check it out or call themm

but since options imports are cheaper go with them

It looks legit to me. I've noticed that most eBay sellers just use the same generic pic regardless of what they're selling. It's like when Tein shows their drop, they show the same damn silver sedan.

The price is about right as well. If shipping is reasonable then you've got a price that is consistent with what H.Techs are selling for lately. If you've got any apprehensions about buying, then send the seller a message.

I'm pretty sure the seller did just use a stock photo for all his TEIN auctions. I just placed my order with optionimports this morning. Thanks to everyone for their suggestions.

LIL TANE i was just stating that tein s techs are green so they might just be using the wrong pic to advertise the h-techs, dont get your panties in a bunch.

wow, don't jump on another member just cause he stated a fact that you may or may not think it's relevant.....

The auction seems legit to me... majority of hte sellers just use generic pics...

I would use paypal just to be certain though

i think it is totally legit. they just posted the wrong picture thats all, if you take time and read the description carefully, all matches with H-TECHS especially the 3rd line that says....its first coated with zinc phosphate for rust proofing and finished with a GOLD color powder paint....+ part# is exact

i would say go for it, the only thing that turns me off about these guys is that they note" some items may be special order and allow 4 weeks for delivery" that i think is BS. why auction something you dont have in stock?!? the whole point is selling something you have at hand, not something in a catalog book

plus he has 1300 feedback- I'm sure they're fine- that price isn't anything spectacular depending on the shipping price- which is likely $20+
