You should see the good parts companies they bought and destroyed. Feel free to google it.
I barely buy from ECS. They are my last resort if all the other small companies that I buy from don't have the part I'm looking for.

nope. I can tell it working well, and I know that is not very scientific. If logging showed I did find that it was less efficient than another more expensive design, which I doubt, I don't care. Its in there, it is clearly well made and performing, and its size gives me room to hopefully have no issues installing the CSF radiator next spring.
good to hear, thanks for your input man.

Why would they buy a parts company and then destroy it? Wouldn't they have incorporated that company into theirs? Why would they spend the money to buy a company only to destroy it?

Yeah, between companies they purchased going downhill like Pelican Parts and all the issues with shipping and selling used items as new im done with them. Many years ago I did a lot of business with them for my MK5 GLI and B5 A4 but every transaction I have made recently has been a problem. This is a great group for seeing how they have gone down hill, they have a single rep in it trying his best to fix everything https://www.facebook.com/groups/1969390720044815

I’ve used ECS since 2006ish, and grew up in Ohio.

I still use them from time to time, but in my recent experience it’s been a a 50/50 chance the order arrives correct let alone undamaged.

I'm not crazy about them and they have screwed up my orders before, but they have always been good about correcting things. Its a plus their parts get to me in two days too.

I usually avoid their assembled by ECS and ECS made stuff though. I've heard they were rough for a while but it seems they got their shit together.
