      equal quality is debatable

      honestly bagyard is akin to kw v3's vs say koni coilovers (air lift) int he end they both do what they do very very well

      i chose air lift mainly for the customer support plus lets be honest they care about customers while bagyard seemed to only care about a certain group of people

      Glad I found this thread.
      Im in Australia and having huge issues getting my parts from bagyard.

      My order turned up with 3/4s of the parts, but also 3/4s of another system. Luckily, worked out this was my mates who had ordered his some time before me, even though he lived a solid 12hrs drive away...

      Have heard a number of times that the missing parts (rear struts) are on the way, but nothing.
      This is 10months since the order date and 7months since the first lot arrived.

      I managed to make contact via these telephone numbers in the past month or so:
      http://www.bagyardairride.com/
      I think it was the second number I had the luck with...

      One is disconnected, the other either rings out or gets answered by a lady who speaks very little english and sadly I cant string a sentence together quick enough to reply back in German (I assume its german...)

      As far as im aware there is about 6 sets in Australia that have been paid for and either received a little or none of the order.

      Bull****! Did they sell the company and just peace out? Still can't believe people have been buying their products. I understand the small variables but really, NEVER do you hear a good review.

      I'm not talking people raving about a product, I mean an above and beyond review. Never happens, still people buy.

      Best of luck to you all.

      Wow...I hadn't realized this got that bad. You gotta wonder who is running a company now that has people literally willing to throw a substantial premium over comparable offerings (interpret that as you want depending on your application, needs, etc.) at them for their product, and still aren't producing anything.

      Glad I went with AirLift for my C6...I did love the BagYards on my B5.5, but if they are impossible to get a hold of, it doesn't really matter if it will make your car levitate and hover over speed bumps, they are still impossible to get a hold of...

      Didn't you have some exclusive deal setup with BY originally? Also didn't they royally burn you guys as well? I just remember the talk of lynching and burning at the stake years ago with the first BY group buy.

      Yes and yes. They've been backstabbing their dealers for quite some time now and this is really no surprise.

      That stinks man. I remember back when that was going on, I know a lot of things were said but it really looks like all that drama was you trying to save face for BY. Can't really **** on a company you just did a GB for.

      Sorry I have been in sales my whole life and this is just beyond me. This is a great case of a TERRIBLE business. They didn't have that many customers and their product is that hard to make. They should at least maintain stock. If they can't shut it down.

      Wow what a shame, people pay thousands of $$ for bagyards stuff only to get burned by a ****ty company. Maybe bagyard should take a page from air lifts customer care..

      Well, that was always the downfall (partially my fault) of doing business with them. They never took responsibility for their own actions and they left us out to dry countless times. People blamed me/ORT for the shoddy customer service and it actually wasn't me at all, it was BagYard. BagYard never quite grasped the concept of keeping a minimum stock level and allowing us to stock parts here in the States. It's a lost cause at this point and it's like russian roulette, but with money.

      Go onnn I may need a switch up. Airilift rocks, always great service and they're also willing to do some customization if you ask nicely. I've previously worked with Ian on creating a one off setup for a Toyota corolla

      it's got potential. I'm currently in need of bearings for my passenger strut, keep destroying strut mounts. They make annoying noises when they're shot haha.
