Default Best Car Accessories/ ICE Online Store.

Hi !
I was wondering if there is a fully dedicated car accessories/ ICE online store with the best prices and service ?
I am tired finding the Pio HU's here in my city but there is no one here that seems to be interested in selling them, everywhere here is Sony, Sony and More Sony

Saw this site : Xenos (thanks to ads by Google on Tbhp! )
they seem to have some good range of car care products , etc.

Xenos is no good.
Try some reputed shops there.
I am not aware of any in amritsar.

Don't think a online store in India, but i've heard Reliance Auto shop (don't know exact name) in gurgaon has some worth looking collection.

Iam looking for a AMP and a SUB, and my credit card is pinching me to get used for it, lol

Hi Rahul, do you mean none of the shops on Albert Road, Queens Road stock a Pioneer? This is amazing! Man your best bet is to pick a Pioneer from Delhi or ask someone to get it for you. In Delhi, you can head to Karol Bagh or Lajpat Nagar, whichever is closest.

And yes, there's no online car audio shop in India that sells at good price. Buy offline.

The Gurgaon - Reliance Store is rather useless with the choice of accessories. I tried it myself for a DIY can of paint and there was no paint available at all. Having spent quite some time in Tokyo where there are Stores with a complete floor dedicated to Car accessories and DIY stuff this was a big big letdown, since the concept was just the same.

The ICE range was also rather limited, with some Pioneer HU's available at that point of time.

I manage most of my requirements with this shop in Nehru Place, but he too runs out of ideas when it comes to my Scorpio.

Not very awe-inspiring, with a rather buggy website. Prices rather high. Virtual shop only?

When almost everything is available online nowadays, why not car accessories only? In TE and other forums, there are group orders too where we get difficult to procure pc parts at reasonable prices.

If you're willing to wait a while try this Car Audio Stereo - Car Subwoofers - Car Amplifiers and Speakers Not too sure about the prices being competitive though. They do ship to India.

Default Online Purchasing.

I am really sorry if this is not the appropriate place for this.
Please move to the right place if i am wrong.

I have searched everywhere for a nice place to purchase car audio speakers ONLINE in India.

If i go to international sites, the shipping alone costs a ton.

Tried google. Worst than ever.

So if there is any one who can direct me to a good indian site ??

Thanks.

Default Re: Online Purchasing.

1. Speakers (and all other audio equipment) should be heard before purchase.
2. When purchasing online you have to be many times more careful as there are a lot of fakes going around. Some fakes are diffcult to tell from their originals.
3. I dont think there are any reliable Indian web based stores like (Amazon, Crutchfiled, etc..). Crutchfield started out in the pre internet days as a catalog store. I think the closest alternate is Rediff.com. Then again I am not net literate.

4. Have you tried TBHP Classfieds (do read the disclaimer)? or ebay India?

I have tried Ebay India. But there is no collections other then very standard models.
and moreover Amazon and cruthfield have good collections. But buying products from them we have to pay duty and shipping costs which easily crosses 6k alone.

You are right about audtioning a product before buying. But i thought it would be more simple if i could just trust a reliable online site for purchasing.

Anyway thanks for the quick reply.

You are advised to test the product before buying it.
If you have a specific brand and model number known to you, get it from a trusted seller.

Also please stick on to Trusted sellers as there are lot of fraud sites which claims to sell even a 42" LED at 15K or less.
