    Are we allowed to ask what happened. I looked in there once and decided that place was a bad idea.

    just looked at their page, looks like a bunch of 'mall rated' crap...

    looks like a place where people with no clue buy stuff for twice the price and pay $90/hr to have it bolted on rather then just calling the manufacturer and having it to shipped direct and bolt it on yourself in an hour.

    He keeps selling the stuff you ordered to anyone who walks in then tells you yours is still on order. After many weeks of waiting he then gives you your money back minus a penelty . Seems befiting that i hear he has just been arrested.

    It looks like the name is " Auto add ons" as opposed to Add on auto? I'm wondering if it is a franchise as that name brings up a few different locations in a search.

    I can't find a website for the London location other than a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/AutoA...83391541964248

    there seems to be "Auto Add Ons" and "Add On Auto".
    the first seems to be a training website for dealer add ons.
    the other looks to be much like "Action Car and Truck Accessories".

    wonder what he got arrested for? how bad did you get burned?

    To be fair to Auto Add Ons, it would be helpful to hear from them.

    Nope I'm with OP on this one.... It's a shit place and they are what he claims.... The ripped my cousins dad out of $1000....

    He went in there for a lift for his pickup truck spent all this money for it to be installed and came out with only 4 new shocks and no lift...... Also they tore open the cv boot, tore inner wheel well cover, claimed to have done an alignment but couldn't provide specs etc....

    Just another place I'll never visit.... Making that list of 3 now lol....

    My mistake sorry.i meant Auto add ons. I hear it was fraud he was arrested for. I just wanted to warn people, his prices were so good because he had no intention of selling you the product.

    if this is the place on Exeter near Wonderland in London. I agree He is a big rip off. I went to him for an alignment on a 06 Kia Rio5 within a week of having the car safety done and having both lower ball joints for the safety and when I told him that he said he could show me which he did my taking me out to the shop floor ( more like a converted warehouse not a real shop ) and has his guy show me by prying on the ball joint with a 3 foot pry bar. first thing I did was take it right back to my mechanic to make sure he didn't break anything. I will never even pull into his parking lot again.

    This had a friend purchase a bumper only for him to disappear and it never to arrive.

    Flat out told them he was offering below cost and it was too good to be true.

    If anyone has had a similar issue go into the regional police service and file a report so they have evidence following his fraud investigation.
