Never use THmotorsports.com

I believe it is another web front for Autoplicity. They do not actually have anything in stock, they fake availability and order just in time from manufacturers and such - with spotty success. Do not believe 5 star reviews either, they are fake.

I rarely if ever complain about any vendors - just not my style - but those clowns are just beyond.

I haven't bought any Toyota parts from them, but have purchased coilovers and other parts for my other vehicles in the past from them in person. They have a store in Skokie, IL not far from where I grew up and I have picked up parts from them in person. A friend of mine also sold one of them a motorcycle that he had built so I can assure you they are a real business and have a real showroom space and are not simply an online only front.

Last I bought something (a few years ago) they had a small warehouse space for the most popular/common parts (350z Coilovers at the time). Anything else was to be drop shipped or shipped to them at their store/warehouse for pick up.

All this being said, what was the issue that you had with them specifically? It's pretty well known that many of these companies with online store fronts are simply drop shipping everything and stock next to nothing.

There may have been a real space, but this is not a well run online business.

Silently cancelling orders and not giving a damn about it is the worst online shopping experience i, and apparently many others who are not shills, have recently had.

Just sharing as a caution.

Who knows, maybe something changed in their business/employee structure and it's totally different than the old days of THMotorsport.

At least they cancelled rather than holding onto your money and not sending you anything!

I am not sure what is you interest in defending those clowns, but I am shopping online for many many years and know what to expect, and when to warn fellow shoppers to steer clear away.

Don't know if you realize, but most of these businesses are drop shippers. Makes no sense to have a warehouse full of aftermarket parts for such a broad array of cars if you're a little guy. The difference is, these guys just do a shitty job at drop shipping.

Didn't have a single issue with them. Seems fine to me.

I have never had a issue with TH Motorsports. I purchased multiple parts from them in person at their original location, and after they moved to their second location. I have purchased many parts from them over the years, often times picking it up from them because they had it in stock, and I used to be local in Illinois.

I have also ordered a few things from them after I moved to Arizona in 2015.

They are quick to ship, and obviously they do drop ship certain items.

OP sounds like he is a pain in the ass to deal with and likes to cry on the internet about imperfect experiences.

I bet you use YELP....
