SPM has horrible customer service

Be advised SPM has little to no customer service! Be careful before dealing with them

SPM? Are we talking about Steve Petty Motorsports? Heard good things about their down pipe but not enamored with the non-existent website.

Yeah. Last i remember they closed up shop and ECS bought them or became exclusive dealers.

That may have failed and they came back but they have always been shit customer service. Not to mention all the allegations of them stealing designs from other companies

Idk if SPM even exists anymore. ECS bought them out, or at the very least they bought the rights to sell the products. If you go on ECS and shop by brand SPM doesn't come up. When you do a search for steve petty motorsports every product that comes up says no longer available.

i called them when they were still open with a question on something, ready, cash in hand to buy a turboback exhaust and and something else from them. I tried em like 5 times before deciding to spend my thousand plus dollars elsewhere. They couldnt stay in business cause they couldnt bother to pick up the phone
