n54tuning.com, seriously guys??

So I went to n54tuning.com...


I'll let picture speak for themselves.






Seriously guys? Stealing $180 script and not even bothering removing tags?
And I was about to order AR downpipes but now have no respect for you...

For those that don't understand - n54tuning.com is running a "nulled" (cracked) version of Cubecart shopping software (outdated at that too). Whoever installed it didn't even bother removing tags.

Don't know much about these things but if they payed someone to build the site couldn't the person doing it have just pocketed the money?

still holds that they shouldn't be directly doing business with someone who's that shady.

If they paid someone for that site, and they're doign something that shady...what might that shady person be doing with the credit card info?

No matter how you spin it, a bit unsettling

Escobar hit the point I was making, yes it's still wrong but Mike may not know.

Not always safe either... just this week someone hacked into my account and tried to transfer $500 directly from my checking account to my Paypal account. Guess they were hoping I wouldn't notice. Bastards.

Now I know what that means LOL

I always wondered what the IAG thing was. I guess there is newer software available now? I should really contact a better web guy as the guy who helped with this back in 2008 obviously didn't do things properly.

Thanks for pointing it out, but you could have just emailed me

Agreed...an email would have given a heads up before jumping to conclusions. I'd have let them handle it internally before insinuating malicious actions...and if it didn't get resolved then start a thread about. FWIW I've done business with N54 Mike and have no reason to think they aren't legit.

Nah. I think mikes legit. ECS, BavX, **********s, JleviSW, Tischer. They're not a bunch of random dudes in asia with a paypal account and fake parts. Theres definitely a bunch of vendors that ordering a part is a gamble on whether you'll ever get it or not.

Then why post in seeming corroboration with OP's conclusion that N54Tuning is shady?

In the context of this thread, what conclusion is one to make other than that you are lumping N54Tuning in with the "non-legit" businesses?
