Never had a problem with FT86motorsports. Ordered 3 times so far and multiple items each time. They forgot gaskets once and sent them next day. My last order was brake rotors and I received them exactly 24hrs after I placed my order. Just my experience hope that helps.

Never had problems with ft86motorsports since I got the car almost 3 years ago. Bought tons of things and never had a problem. Talked to the guy on facebook many times and still do if I need a quote or just to chat about the availability of a part. In fact, message ahead of time (on facebook), tell them which exhaust you want and find out what the lead time on them is at the moment. That way there are no surprises. If a vendor takes 6 months to ship the part, unfortunately there’s nothing they can do about that.

Another that's never had a problem with FT86 Motorsports. I have had a half dozen orders with them.

Touge.ca
JRP
Alpha Motorsports
NV Auto

Some others off the top of my head. I haven't had any direct experience with them yet.

I have to vouch for garage 16, great pricing, and I got my parts incredibly fast.


I will give credit to ft86motorsports, they do have some bad rep on here. It sounded like the store used to be a one man operation, and there were lots of customer support issues. It is my opinion that this is no longer the case.



When I ordered, I made two orders at the same time, and one of the items in one of my orders was unavailable, and the order wouldn't have been eligible for free shipping. I asked to combine the orders, they were able to do so, and apart from waiting for a few weeks for them to receive my OFT, everything went well. So in my opinion the customer service is more than acceptable.


I notice you're out in BC, i think image in motion is out that way, never ordered from them so I have no idea. Might be an option for you.


Some other vendors that seem worthwhile:

I got a front lip from Ft86motorsports and received it exactly as the time frame stated. I just emailed ahead to make sure the item really was in stock like the website had stated

Another good one for FT86motorsports, I had ordered a license plate frame, and they had emailed me right away stating it was a special order item and that it was 10 days or so. Messaged me again when it was in stock and had a tracking number right away.

Placed and received my first order from FT86motorsports. 4 items, 2 special order (states on website 10-15 business days before shipping).
On the 15th day I received an email that they were still waiting for item 'X'.
I replied asking if they had an eta or if swapping to one of the slightly more expensive versions of the same component would be faster.
Received a response quickly that it should arrive either that afternoon or on Monday (it was Friday) and they would ship everything as soon as it arrived.
I guess it arrived less than an hour from our email conversation as I got a tracking number on Friday and received everything yesterday.
Their emails came from 2 different people but didn't seem disjointed either.

10-15 business days of waiting for shipment isn't exactly my favourite but it was stated clearly up front. When they thought they were going to be late they notified me. In the end it wasn't any later than they'd stated and I got everything I ordered in good condition and well packaged. No complaints from me.

Yeah I think something has changed recently cause I also (for the first time) received an email after 2 weeks telling me there's a delay. The order's been shipped but good on them for following up.
