Ok, its time for my review of my JPS coupe and my experience with JPS.
Most of us know how JPS goes. I have a different twist on it.
My car went over on build time. A year plus over. Going in, I knew JPS cars run behind. Even a couple of years of build time, which was health related in instances. My delay may have been shop relocation related. I'll go with that.
I have multiple pages of 'spec' for my car. My car was built to my spec. Outlaw & blacked out trim & no trim at all. Up-spec'd the Subie motor to a 4 cam. Pro street trans (some trannies are built up more than mine), cross drilled rotors. Black interior, blue piping & grey carpet. ...Etc
I came to the area solely to pick up my coupe and shake it down. 1000 miles in 12 days. We put together a 29 point punch list. John took it in no problem and turned it out in a day (with 175 miles on it at the time). Drove it to 1100 miles and had another 12 point punch list, & oil change. Re-torqued each time. Done quickly (half day) the second time. John stood behind his car. His current three tech/mech's are busy guys right now. One office person too. The JPS shop is rolling along at the moment.
All that being said, I am giving a positive review. Beauty car, good build and JPS has stood behind it. And they serviced it. This is MY experience. ...I cannot say how future builds will go, or time lines.
And to add, I feel my car is a good canvas to improve on. Personalization or tasty upgrades in the future. This car moves out and rides decent. Good heat, a/c and power windows. Compliments abound... I feel lucky.
Well, there you go. I like my JPS car. The wife does too. We have lived in it for days. Comfort was decent for such tiny seats.
Now we head back to the great PNW, and back to our winter reality. Cheers
