Stiffed by Long Island DIesel!!!!

Hello all. This is my first post here and unfortunately it's going to be a rant.

Here’s a word of caution to anyone wanting to purchase anything from Long Island Diesel Performance (now Diesel Technologies). I purchased a DR leveling kit from Jeremy at LIPD 5 months ago and he has yet delivered. It was always one lie after another…back ordered, it should have shipped, and it’s DR’s fault – they should have sent it. I tried my hardest to give the guy a chance to make good since he was a vendor here but 5 months…WTF. I asked to him to deliver it now or refund my money back, now he doesn’t ever return my calls. I’ve never been stiffed like this before and it really gets me pissed since he was a vendor here. Has anyone else had a bad experience with LIPD? It wasn’t a bunch of money but to stiff someone out of 700.00 is just a criminal act. Any suggestion on what I should do? Also, is there anyone in NY wanting to go and collect for me?

Can anyone recommend a vendor reputable vendor out there who sells DR’s stuff? I’m also looking for a good price on a Fass 150/180 fuel pump.

You should be able to call your CC company and get them to refund your money. There has been a long running problem with Jeremy and the way he does business. I would def try and get my money back. There is a reason he was not a vendor here for very long. You can always sue him. I know that there have been several others that have done that. Also report him to the BBB. Let this be a word of caution for this thread too...not that it is now, but if it gets to be a huge bashfest...I will close it down.

We have many other great vendors and any of them would be more than happy to help you out.

And to the ORG

That seems like a LOT of money for just a leveling kit too? Is it made out of Gold?

Thanks Logan. I promise you I'm not looking for a bash fest but more of a resolution to my problem and advice on how what I should do. LIPD is the only company that has ever stiffed me and not quite sure how to handle it. Will a cc company still refund me back my money after sveral months? I also called the other day and his answering machine no longer said "LIPD" but Diesel Technologies.

It was for all shocks and new front springs...I probably over paid, who knows. If any other vendor out there wants to pm me price for a new one please do so. I'm also looking for a good price on a fass 150/180. I'll be having studs added, 190cc Casserly injectors, Elite's VGT SS turbo, NX nitrous kit with bottle opener, and 4.10's towards the end of the month...can't wait

I had a similar situation with the purchase of a tire changer and called the manufacture. They didn't help me get my money back but they did sell me a changer at dealer cost since they wanted to make things good. It won't hurt anything to make a few calls and ask.
