Global Racing Solutions ...?

Has anyone dealt with them? BBB gives them a B rating, few complaints over delivery issues but prices seem cheap.

Thought the 1er Community would appreciate...

I took the plunge anyway; ordered a set of ST Coils for $859 (they shared same manufacturers numbers and kept same stock numbers as other dealers like ECS tuning, Mod Bargains, and even ST Suspension website) out the door on 7/8/2013. Got an email at 7:00am on 7/9/2013 saying that they shipped and I should have them by tonight

I emailed back and forth with them a few times before buying, they seemed real inclined to help me out time wise in giving me time to get coils installed before bimmerfest. I'm unsure if that is their typical shipping times, but from Cali to Ohio usually takes longer--closer to a week. I will report back with pictures tomorrow--so far, they seem like an awesome dealer/web-store to get things off of.

I don't know if I'm going to the same site, but I can't find anything for the 1 series on grsparts.com can you point me in the right direction?

I actually found it by searching through Google pages, but on their site-typing "e82" in the search bar brings up the 3 coilover sets they offer and that's about it. Idk if they are new to 1 series but contacting them through the website provided quick response (roughly 5 hours for initial contact back and then direct back and forth communication after that)

Got them today via FedEx--they are in stock packaging and look to be directly from manufacturer. I can honestly say I couldn't have had a better buying experience so far. Cheap price, quick communication, excellent shipping times. Only thing left to do now is get these pics uploaded and then install this weekend! I'm unsure how their business works but they seemed very happy to help; if there are other products you are after too I would ask via the email contact or a phone call.

Pics will be up soon!
