Stupid import shop

I went to a local Import tuner shop today wanting to order a AEM cold air intake. I aksed the guy that runs the shop to order it for me he says he cant because they dont make cold air intakes yet for the focus. I told him that they have been out since the focus came out like 3 years ago and he just gives me a blank stare and walks away from me. I also had to basically ask him to help me because he was like ****in ignoring me when I first walked in. Im never going back there again

To bad for that guy. If he had any business sense, he would have taken your money and learned what he doesn't know about the sales available to him via the Focus. He could just be ...well...stupid...or just has the old "Honda up ass" syndrome. He doesn't deserve your money...you voted with your feet...good for you!

I went to a local speed shop, asked about the aem intake, he told me he could give it to me for 330, i was like, yea, yea right. He goes, what, how much can you get it for? I told him 189 if i looked hard enough. He goes, the lowest i can go is 280, bah, what a rip.

Yeah I agree...I used to go into part shops asking for Probe stuff and they look at me as if I was dumb for modifying my Probe.

When I walked into a local shop once to compare prices the kids that worked there laughed when I said I owned a Focus. Bastards. I wanted to punch them in the face!

That guy is just a moron, the ONLY reason you go to a tuner shop or anyhting
like that is for one thing CUSTOMER SERVICE and warranty, well two. But
without those 2 things it's just cheaper and less hassle to order it online.
