Why?

All the good parts dealers are dropping like flies. Ft. Myers used to be WAY better than Conicelli and they quit doing it about a year ago.

That Sucks, but the local Dealer around here is still giving us DSMers a 25% discount and they will order anything I want without paying ahead time.

We are lucky to have Albert and now Anthony working there. They at knowledgable and give great service. Also Josh from Conicelli is continuing the business I believe so hopefully we'll hear more from him soon.

norco is ok, but would never give the same low pricing as conicelli. unless you already had the price ahead of time & alerted him to the fact.

Tambleramble what % was conicelli giving of list ?

Mitsu car sales sucked. Parts and service department were carrying them for a little while, but they finally decided to pull the plug. Dom Conicelli makes tons of money with his two Toyota dealerships, Scion, Chrysler, Honda, and Nissan, so he can afford to pull the plug on the Mitsus.

Josh is carrying on the torch, be he won't be 100% operational yet. I'm sure he'll post here when he's ready.

"Time to let the cat the rest of the way out of the bag--

1st, the bad news:

As of Tuesday, August 31st, Conicelli Mitsubishi is no longer. No transactions will be made after this date, and the doors will be closed for business.

Now, onto the good news:

With some assistance of my Mitsubishi Rep, I now have an established relationship to get Mitsubishi Parts. I'll be taking over the parts sales aspect, and nothing will change except for the name on your receipt, and the phone # you call. Pricing will stay the same as it was through Conicelli.

As of Tuesday, I'm my 1st $30K purchase of Mitsubishi parts will be in hand. Over the following weeks, I will be building the inventory to match that of Conicelli's (in-so-far as DSM/Evo/Galant VR4 parts)--meaning, most of the common parts will be there to ship out when the order is placed.

I'm hoping to have the new phone line, and credit-card capabilities as of Thursday or Friday of this week. I'm trying to rush all of that and get everything going, so the lull in the ability to supply parts will be only 2-3 days. If you're in need of something before that time, contact me directly, and I'll try to work something out for you in the meanwhile.

As for the restructuring of JNZ Tuning, for the moment, I won't be taking on any new jobs. I wll continue to do work for my current customers however, I need to spend my energies at the moment concentrating on the sales aspect. Once things are moving smoothly, I may take on new customers, but that is yet to be seen.

There will be some additions to this as well, and I'll let you know them as things progress.

Thanks guys (and gals)!"

Sure will.

There can be good money to be made but it is also lots and lots of hardwork. I know this to be fact when we did it back in the mid 90s headed by my good friend Jughead.

Josh will do a great job and I hope you all continue to support your "crack habit" through him. Just be sure to give him a little time to set up shop. [Cool]

Anyone on the west coast should consider:

Maybe I am the only one who buys from them, but it is always a great experience...

I used to get parts from West Broad in VA. I called them last week and they no longer carry Mitsu parts either.

The Mitsu dealers are dropping like flies! First Jersey City closed (after 20 years), one in CT closed, Rockland is about to close down, and now Conicelli and another in VA!! Damn, could this be the beginning of the end? I have offers from two dealers around here to work for them but I am seriously considering going to work with my buddy at a Corvette/Camaro/Firebird performance shop that is over an hour from here 'cause I don't wanna jump back onto a sinking ship. Both service managers at Mitsu dealers that offered me jobs talk about how "Mitsu Japan is a huge company and they won't let the US company go under." but the way dealers are closing it may be a good time to NOT be a Mitsu Tech anymore.

We've lost at least one here too, Collins in Sth. Melbourne, I don't know I recon. they've probably been around 20 yrs too.
I found out when I rand them and no answer, rand out 3 times, so I rang Mitsu HQ, they told me. I expect they could have organised Collins to put a recorded voice announcement on the number. I guess it didn't end in very good terms, I hope the techs and parts guys are multiskilled.
