Unhappy GermanStar Parts

Just curious...

Has anyone dealt with this guy before? I've called him a few times about different items and he always seems to have an attitude, like he doesn't have time to deal with me. I can't imagine it's personal as he doesn't know me from Adam, but it's more than a little annoying to be talked down to, especially when he's SUPPOSED to be there for the customer.

He's in Fountain Hills, AZ just outside Phoenix.

I've called him a few times, but not close enough to remember how much of a jerk he can be. He has good prices compared to the dealer...just wish he was a little more consumer friendly.

Did deal with him a couple of times not impressed at all. Price on product is good but he is a pain to deal with. I bought a ivory steering wheel from him for my 66 Flosse i got it from him for 399.99 new Mb Classic center wanted 999.00 so i saved 600.00 . I used to deal with autohausaz and had pretty good luck with them .
