After seeing how zoomer behaved in that thread, it makes me not want to buy from them after that plus the strut fiasco I went through a few months ago with them.

his customer service has been fine for me, i ordered 130# springs from zzp and one was a little longer than the other phatride took a picture and measured it I emailed zoomer about it and had the right replacement spring 2 days later, he has been helping me out with some custom adapters and what not for my current build, he has been very helpfull to me with the 3 wbodys ive put togather I cant complain, I think im easy to please tho ive had alot of different cars and never had a problem with parts as long as they show up eventually, well other than buying used parts from bumpin or whatever his name was on ilgpc he shafted me hard on a csc deal

Join the "shafted by bumpin" clup.

Z maybe an ass, but I am sure founders of other companies are equally asses and we still buy from them.

Back when I had my monte carlo I bought an intake plenum from WBS and was quite happy with their service It was long before I was on the forums and had just stumbled across their site and ZZP but chose WBS. Glad I did. I SWEAR I called the shop tho. Did WBS have a phone back in like 06/07?

Mike Kopenstien? being the bigger man

Quote:
At the end of the day he's kind of right. If the number of people that respect me and hate Zooomer translated into sales, I'd be the one with the yacht. It just doesn't work that way. ZZP shipped fast when I didn't. They stocked more then I did. They had more new products than I did.

There were hiccups along the way where for months at a pop, our average order fulfillment time was over 4 days... unacceptable.

When it comes time to slapping down the money, 80% of people probably don't care that I'm a nice guy and Zooomer is an ass. All they care about is whether they're going to get their order quickly and thanks to a few hiccups along the road, a lot of people didn't have that confidence with me. Understandably so too.

He's not entirely eloquent which makes people want to disagree with him but on that point he's accurate.

Now everything ships almost immediately but W Body Store has probably 5% of the business of ZZP and I'm the one responsible for laying the groundwork for the perception that we ship slowly. Despite attempts at reviving and getting more exposure for W Body Store, it's largely too little too late. The active community is a fraction of what it once was so when people search online they find stuff from the past and it's littered with references to ZZP.

I have never seen a community where everyone butts heads and EVERYONE thinks they know everything like the 3800 community. Makes me so glad I decided to sell my Monte Carlo and buy the GTO instead of modding it
