I called these guys, carsponsors.com, after seeing an add on Myspace. So I gave them a call and they were sooo excited about sponsoring my 350Z. Told me how they can add a super charger, sterero, ground effects, etc provided by their sponsors. Then they said they need $89.00 to process, so like an idiot, I gave them my credit card number. I was put on hold - likely they were verifying my card - and so I was approved. After reading between the lines, I read they would not go over $2500.00 a year in sponsorship of products. A super charger costs upwards of $4800.00 - just for parts.

So I e-mailed them, called them (left a message of course, no one answered), and left messages to cancel my sponsorship. Then I called American Express and told them my plight. They researched and found that carsponsors.com received no messages from me. So I'm still out 89 bucks. But the good people at American express pulled their plug so they can not use my card again.

Rip off, but I'm still gonna fight this crap!!!

It could be just me, and I am in no way affiliated with carsponsors.com, but I dont think a one time $99 dollar registration fee (Im assuming they've raised it $10 bucks since you guys enrolled)is bad at all for $2, 500 dollars a year in goodies, I read one complaint about having to do ten shows to get a body kit but not one state offers more than 2 shows, I guess everyone expects these companies to just throw money and products at them, nothing in life is free, so stop expecting it to be! Carsponsors.com has a very detailed "Terms and Conditions" page that clearly gives specific details as to what you need to do in order to receive what you were told you would receive, you people cant be mad at the company because you were too eager and didnt research what you were getting into, heck they even went as far into detail to tell you that within 30 days if you werent satisfied that you would get a full refund, minus 29 dollars for their fees. I got my "full Sponsorship but decided to read the terms and conditions before releasing my card information, and googling reviews on the webpage brought me here. I believe that they offer a very legitimate deal, but you have to work hard to earn your sponsorship, but can actually receive it, try going to alpine without them and see how far you get, lol. I wish everyone the best of luck in all their adventures and would hope that you ALWAYS read the Terms and Conditions, A.K.A "the fine print" before entering into any contractual agreement, especially through an internet based company. Best of luck to everyone that reads this on your future endevors...

All of CarSponsors.com negotiated sponsorships require you to promote your sponsors ahead of time before receiving your free products. CarSponsors.com offers several methods to promoting sponsors.

You can get your free products by promoting your sponsors from the comfort of your own home. You'll be promoting your sponsors videos on sites like FaceBook, MySpace, YouTube and other car related sites. It's easy and it's fun. Your product cost is zero. No out of pocket expenses, not even shipping. Perfect sponsorship type to start with. Not all sponsors are enrolled into the video sponsorships at the time of this writing.

You can promote sponsors by attending car shows. Wear your sponsors apparel and hand out promotional items and educate others on the sponsors products. Your product cost is just gas & travel time to local car shows plus $9.85 per sponsor promotional package. Products get shipped free. Perfect sponsorships for those that enjoy going to car shows. Each sponsor has their own required shows to go to before products are shipped. Lower priced products will have less shows to go to then higher priced products. Please email us if you would like the guidelines for each sponsor.

You can participate in our Loyalty Program. If you need your products in your hands now, our Loyalty Program allows you to purchase your products at a special sponsored discount and get reimbursed for it later once you promote your sponsors via online videos or car shows. If you decide that you do not want to promote sponsors then you just simply keep the products you purchased.

EVERYONE ! THESE PEOPLE ARE 100% NO DOUBT A SCAM AND LET ME TELL YOU WHY IN A VERY SHORT POST: I CURRENTLY OWN A CUSTOMS AUTOMOTIVE STYLING COMPANY HERE IN LOS ANGELES CA AND I SPONSOR A TON OF PEOPLE OUT HERE AND FOR ONE REASON ONLY, ANYONE WHO HAS EVER OWNED A COMPANY CAN KNOW THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF A BUSINESS IS MARKETING AND ADVERTISEMENT AND IF YOU HAVE PAID FOR THESE THINGS YOU NO IF COST AN ARM AND A LEG AND A FEW MORE OTHER BODY PARTS. ANYWAYS DOING GOOD WORK OR OFFERING PARTS WHATEVER IT MIGHT BE FOR SIMPLE MARKETING ON CARS OF PEOPLE DOING STANDS AT SHOWS AND SHOWING OFF THERE VEHICLES HAS MADE ME 150% THE MONEY IT COST ME TO SPONSOR THESE PEOPLES CARS PEOPLE COMIING TO MY SHOP SAYING THEY SAW SOMEONES CAR WITH MY WORK ON IT AND THIS HAS BROUGHT CUSTOMERS FROM ALL OVER THE USA. NO ONE AND I SAY AGAIN NO ONE SHOULD EVER CHARGE FOR MARKETING SPONSORSHIP OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT WHAT THESE PEOPLE DO AT CARSPONSORS.COM AND IM SURE OF IT IS TAKE YOUR MONEY PAY OUT THE COMMISSION TO THE SALES AGENT AND THEN FOR SURE THEY HAVE SOME TYPE OF AGREEMENT WITH THESE PARTS COMPANIES AND PAY THEM A KICK BACK FOR THE MARKETING OR SOME TYPE OF ADVERTISEMENT AND THEN THEY WILL SEND THEM DEFECT PARTS, NOW I SAY DEFECT PARTS CAUSE THESE ARE PARTS THAT THE COMPANY CAN NOT SELL DUE TO SMALL THINGS A SCRATCH HERE WEIRD PRINT LITTLE MINOR THINGS THAT YOU WOULD PROBABLY NOT NOTICE BUT IT IS NOT APPROVED TO BE SHIPPED OUT. SO BASICALLY THEY HAVE YOU WORK YOUR ASS OFF SPREADING THERE NAMES SO THEY CAN SUCKER IN AS MANY PEOPLE AS THEY CAN SO THEY CAN SEND YOU SOME SHITTY PART FOR YOUR CAR AND IT IS NOT EVEN WORTH THE MAN HOURS, THAT IS JUST MY THOUGHT ON THE COMPANY BUT I COULD BE WRONG. ANYWAYS THERE A SCAM BOTTOM LINE THEY PROBABLY ALSO USE THE OLD BULLSHIT EXCUSE ABOUT THE BBB BEING A PRIVATELY FUNDED COMPANY AND IF YOU DONT PAY THEM THERE FEE TO BE CERTIFIED THOUGH THEM THEY GIVE YOU A BAD RATING AND THE BBB IS THE SCAM BLAH BLAH BLAH. COMPLAINTS DON'T LIE PEOPLE DONT WASTE THERE TIME TYPING OUT A WHOLE STORY JUST FOR NO REASON AND AGAIN IF IT IS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE THAT IS CORRECT ITS NOT TRUE.
