    Tognotti\'s in Sacramento- they suck!

    Stay away from Tognotti's Auto World in Sacramento, CA. I never really liked them much. Bunch of guys who think they know it all and kinda act like yeah well whatever when you talk to them. Sometime though when you want a part...you go to them out of they can get anything. But anyhow here's my reason why I don't like at all anymore. I went in and ordered some Hedman headers from them. It was supposed to take 10 days...which turned to 30 days, which went to almost 45 days. Kept telling me Hedman was backed up and it's be another 3 weeks plus. I ended up cancelling the order. I didn't want to wait even longer. I'm sooooo glad I did. I found that the part number on the return receipt was different then the the part number on the special order form I was given. Hmmmm no wonder I couldn't locate these headers else where. With this other part number I not only found them, but for over $100 less. I also found out it comes with the Y-Pipe something they did not tell me. I wonder if that was a mistake or not? Were they going to keep it for themselves or what? Seems funny to me when I called them pretending to just ask about them. Again they mentioned no Y-Pipe. These they were selling me were not coated, that was extra money. The headers come coated already....I think they tried to give me a run for my money. I have never liked them as I said. They acted like I was asking a huge deal too when I wanted my money back. They made me feel like I was stupid or something- like geez lady can't you just shut up and wait? They had to call in a manager to ok it. Even then he was like well are you sure and ifed and ummmed about it. It was a project let me tell you. I have in the past bought from them on occasion when I have to have a part quick and I'm stuck. I will I'm sure get small things like KC light bulbs and so from them...but for a big purchase. Never AGAIN! They have a website, so you might someday stumble across them. Or you might live here in Sac. I have to say they should go and join with 4WPW and deal together...they both stink! Don't go there and give them your business if it's something that has to be ordered...they might waste your time and for sure your money!

    That is why I deal with Summit Racing all the time. In the last 10 years of ordering from them I don't have one single complaint. Their # is 1-800-230-3030 and their catolog is FREE.

    Re: Tognotti\'s in Sacramento- they suck!

    Summit didn't carry what I was looking for...I searched and searched. They don't have every single thing under the sun. I wanted to buy locally or close by. Not have to mail stuff back and forth if there is a problem. Why I went there to begin with it was local and they seemed to always have a good reputation. I was just simply warning people of my experience is all with this post. Some people may have good luck....I didn't. But sometimes you end up learning after you ordered they are idoits when it's too late like I did. If I would have known before hand I wouldn't have dealt with, which is why I did to begin with, I didn't know.....

    Re: Tognotti\'s in Sacramento- they suck!

    Yeah I hear ya....I get talked down too alot due to being female when I buy parts. This guy friend of mine was calling around to find me a part since I had to work that day. He was quoted $14.99. When I got to the shop after work to pick it up, they wanted $19.99. I told them no thanks and left. He went back with me that evening and he paid $14.99 for it. What's up with that? I love email for this reason....I send questions out under my other email. I get replies, info, everything twice over what I get on this email because they see the Gal and talk to me like I am stupid.....ARGH! I think this is what happened in this case....I just assumed they were honest and trusted them. I'm too trusting and it almost cost me a lot of money! I will be way more careful and less trusting when it comes to parts from now on that is for sure!
