Default Working at a race shop sucks...

this is why it sucks
1.People low balling and price bashing
2.Ricers telling you how they are going to be on super street,import tuners and so on...so thats why you should give them a discount.
3.What quater mile will my car run with this intake?spark plug and so on.
4.Is a b18 better then an h22 or b16?(those types of questions)
5."My girl friend is an import model"
6.You sell parts you hate such as APC or Altezza because they are money makers
7.Custumers telling you about their 18 inch rims on their CRX
8.You dont really get good discounts and your buddies bug you for discounts

Bimmerworld.....vs honda import shop very big difference in custumers. Rice parts like Altezza and DC Sport sticker bring in easy bucks....

look at the import community as a whole
90% buy that ****

so by not selling it you are cutting your market down to 10%

sorry not gonna make any money.

it kills me to say it but if i opened a shop i would sell that **** like its the greatest product on earth. its a money maker.

Why was the title referring to your place of business a "Race Shop"? Do you actually build race cars or sell actual race parts? Or is it mainly cosmetics and bolt ons?

i know how you feel dude. my job is cake, but i got to sell tail lights and light bulbs, why?? cause it sells, i rarely sell performance part. and when i do i say yea go with AEM, but 250-280 on an intake isn't ther cup of tea, so then i open up the lil cheapo brand books, and sell a generic intake for under a 100 if i didnt' sell taillight and soforth, then that shop i work for would goooooo out of business. we dont' builts cars. but we can get you parts you need
