I love my garagistic gears! Had them on for roughly 2 months now and put around 1500 miles on them so far.. Works like a charm! Feels good having the miles tick once again

Your smaller primary cog was in MUCH better shape than mine was. Mine had disintegrated to a bunch of tiny plastic rods where there was nothing left but the smooth plastic wrapped around the burled brass sleeve. Also I had a pair of teeth missing from the largest cog.

Smile VDO euro speedo gears

Thanks for your speedy reply
I have Bookemarked your website & will use that to communicate with you once I have ascertained it is indeed the gears that are the culprit.
There are other things that also interest me, but their bulk makes shipping a no-no

if you can send from a country other than the USA, then shipping will be cheaper. not sure why but in my experience i can get things shipped from germany even canada for a half to twothirds the price of the same item exUSA. this may be an NZ only issue mind you

Before we both get accused of USA bashing
I made my first serious money whilst living in the USA by recognising that there is a world outside the continental borders
Instead of building hard-core race motors, as I was then doing, I soon realising that I made far more money exporting speed parts to NZ, Australia, SA & Sweden.
Granted this was back in the early 90's, but even today I am amazed how some large US companies either do not want to sell outside the US of A or they use the wrong way of shipping
NOTE: I am not referring to Garagistic, but to others
For instance I would ship these small gears with EMS or normal post as UPS & Fed EX (being US companies) will immediately charge 50 USD for initial freight, because they are scared of falling of the edge of the world
Please excuse my rant, but being in the import business, as well, makes me pig-biting mad

We try to do our best to keep shipping costs down. Thats why when customers ask that we get a quote from a certain company (usually they refer them in the first place due to price), we go out of our way to get that quote. We want to take care of our customers.

Besides, nothing beats the feeling of seeing a shipping truck pull up and knowing your car parts are in there!

Thumbs up Company attitude

I wish other USA companies would see it in the same light

garagistic- are you still lurking around here?

I ordered some motometer gears and I'm wondering when/how they will be sent. I emailed you but so far no response.
