auto accessories from aliexpress?

any of you guys ever buy any shift knobs/boots/short throw shifters from aliexpress before? Just wondering if you know a trustworthy seller on the site for auto accessories.

Would most of the honda shift knobs fit on north american accords if I were to buy one that says it fits for honda civics and accord CL7 since north american and asian honda models are different? I think..

They should be just as reputable as most online "catalogue" sites and eBay. Most of those places get their shit from alibaba manufacturers anyways

Bought CREE LED lights from a shop there but when they sent me a tracking number it's bogey and it doesn't track anything.

Might be the beginning of a dispute. Follow this space for how this unfolds.

my tracking number usually works a day (or two) before the actual item arrives. I've bought off aliexpress 6 times now, its been the same each time.

It's just like ebay, buy from reputable sellers and you should be fine.

I never buy from aliexpress, just sticking with eBay and run my transactions through PayPal if I ever need to dispute an order.

i'd stick to ebay

same shit as ali but you at least get the peace of mind and the ease of getting refunded if shit hits the fan


i'm holding off ordering shit from China right now though...I don't know if customs has been tighter than usual but i've had to cancel and demand refunds on a bunch of orders as its been 10+ weeks and haven't received it yet

from my exp, shit from China should never take longer than 6-8 weeks

I place orders all the time, 50% of the time my item doesnt come withing the Protection Plan timeline. So I just dispute it and get my money back.. There are times the items have arrived 2 months pass the protection date and I basically just get a free item.

Same, as well as DHgate.

I've had a few minor issues but all were resolved promptly.

takes a month to get here like everything from china.
usually after 2 months, file a complain and they give you a refund. if you get the item later great its free

Ah that explains it, stuff has been taking over 4 months to get here lately. But then two separate packages ordered from the same seller on the same day manage to arrive in my mailbox on the same day.

I have had really bad experience with aliexpress, they are more oriented to protect the seller rather than the buyer.

I ordered 2 items and requested to cancel on the same day. Seller did not acknowledge my cancellation at all, I sent messages to the seller and contacted aliexpress directly multiple times and all they said was they will try to contact the seller. In the end the processing time was over and the seller shipped the item anyways. The seller rejected my cancellation with the reason "item was shipped"

Aliexpress customer service(not like they would have done anything anyways, the customer service is useless) said they couldn't do anything because the item has already been shipped and that I should deal with the seller. Which was frustrating because I game ample time for them to correct the transaction.

In then end I had to do charge back with the credit card, I provided the credit card with messages that was sent and I documented the timeline. So I was lucky in that sense and swore never to use aliexpress.

Yep, figured it was lost or something and got my money back before the cutoff (eBay order).

I bought a Mugen-look gas cap cover from there. It looked like absolutely shit.

Stuff is cheap but be wary what you pay for.

i know someone who bought collectibles through aliexpress vendors, but out of the few purchases he's made, only 70% of them arrived, and it was a struggle to deal with china post, and the vendors grasp of the english language suddenly vanishes. buyer's protection was a joke because it pretty much tells you to figure it out between yourselves. so far only one claim has been honored and he's still out $$$ for the rest.

Aliexpress is ok, but I still prefer eBay due to easier buyer protection.
Packages from China used to take about a month which wasn't bad as long as you buy things ahead of time.

But ever since November, packages from China have been incredibly slow. Around 3 months (or longer or possibly missing forever)
By the 2 month mark, I just tell the vendor my package hasn't arrived yet and they usually refund me, no hassle.

I guess fentanyl crisis still hasn't cleared up yet...
I just stick to North American vendors now, since time is money.
Things cost a bit more... but 1-2 weeks vs 3+ months...

Strangely enough the LEDs I just ordered from China on eBay just showed up, 15 days after I ordered them. So maybe things are back to normal?
