I'm in the market for a new car as i have sold my r32,

Ghostdancer on driftworks seem to have some nice cars for good money.
But has anyone ever had any dealings with them.
Give me some feedback good or bad:attention:

He has a good reputation over on Driftworks so I'd be quite confident :)

Met him on a recent trip to Japan, damn fine chap. he's gonna stop trading through driftworks soon. His new site is www.drivingsports-na.com . You can still PM Rick through driftworks though.

Yeah, been reading there's some issues going on with GD. not sure if it's personal or related to the merger with Driving Sports.
But there's someone over there who bought an R32 from them, and when it turned up, some of the stuff that was advertised had been removed and swapped, and the car wouldn't even run right. The guy hasn't been able to get in contact with them.

I must be one of the only ones to get what they paid for with the exception of a a cracked front bumper and a replacement seat (bride swapped for recaro) but this could have been done on the boat. Ive even found a few things that were done to the car that i didn't know off. The only thing is that he forgot to hide the parts when in a rush to get it on the boat and an apexi Rev/Speed meter was stolen he had said that he would send a replacement out and i haven't received it but im sure i will get it soon (fingers crossed). But there do seem to be some horror stories on driftworks.

I'd only heard good things up to know about ghost dancer.

Was even going to go through the route of importing one from him a while ago.

Hope you get your money back Dubstar !!!

right quick update.

I've been assured my car will arrive - but as for now its back in japan !
it should have all the bits that i paid for with exception of the rad which will be sent to me.

still no new shipping date yet so its still atleast 2 months away before i may see it.

finger crossed

just a quick update.

storey got far worse in january, but Stephen from Skay has been on the case
and it looks like my car will be on a boat very soon. (only been 7 months so far)
we've had to make a few spec changes but thats better than having no car or money !

update.... :)

got a car ! - picked it up last week.


i'm still missing my pimp wheels (they will be on the way soon) and a few bits to make it run right (being shipped now).
but i have a car and only 10 months after i paid lol

a big thanks to stephen of skay and kawabata san of driving sports japan for sorting this nightmare out for me and the others

i'll sort out a proper thread once i've cleaned it and lowered it. (and if i can face taking pics without the correct wheels !)
