I'm waiting for an order from CIP to arrive in a coupe of days. Their website is user friendly and usually has pictures. Also, when ordering relatively small objects, shipping is free if the order is over $50. So far so good!

I haven't bought from them in a while, but I know their prices are usually good and their website is excellent as Kostya mentioned.

My purchases have all gone smooth and shipping was never an issue. I'd give them money again. (in exchange for parts of course) 8-)

Bought a fair amount from them yesterday over the internet. Nothing huge but stuff necessary for my next build. Did fianlly get a D.H. tool I have been needing with the purchase. I will let ya'll know...

Shipped out in less than 24hrs. I like the fact that they accept Paypal. Goodies on the way...

Got the goodies in today from CIP1. Instead of the 10-14 days ship, got it all in 8 days. Not bad... So, looking in the box:
BugPack 8mm chromo cyl head suds, check.
Mahle std/std main bearings, check
BugPack oil piston hex studs, check
Deck Heigh measure tool, check.
It was all there and I really been wanting a D.H. tool. Now I need a crank gear puller, but they were out of stock. :cry:
A+ to CIP1.

Bought many items from them. Shipping is always fast and the guys on the phone are always pretty cool. I have never had a problem with them.

If you've got time on your hands.

the FREE SHIPPING is the way to go ..

they have coupons all the time also - saved over a 100 bucks on a pre christmas order and still
got free shipping.. I was on vacation to begin with so the parts took their time and made it home when I did.. Was very happy!!

Bought rubber seals and hardware for my 56 pop outs and order took about 5 days after I ordered for it to arrive at the house. I am pleased with the service.
