Auto Talent... Anyone there?

Does anyone know if Auto Talent is open? I have been trying to reach them for over a week without any responses.

Thanks!

They are open, I just spoke with them yesterday about getting some service done. Hit up Justin he’s very communicative and helpful. They are super busy so getting through can be a bit challenging.

Sorry I don’t have his number, we were communicating via email and DM. Look for his user name on IG: @justinianshih

We are open

Our shop number is 310 231 7800

The website is run by golan so chances are any of the other numbers listed will go to him.

I had a poor time reaching out to them trying to buy some TE's and kept getting some asian lady that barely spoke English before I got a call back from some guy. Asian lady was very nice and polite though.

You were most likely speaking with Golan. If you need assistance I am happy to help!

TEs are a bit of a long wait, but if you need assistance picking the right variant or need a quote please feel free to reach out to me directly.

I'm assuming you called the website number.

The shop number is 310 231 7800

Is the shop a different business than the Website? Did you guys split up and go separate ways or something?

I'm friends with Justin at Auto Talent. There's a lot of dumb politics in place. The separation is to distinguish where leads come from. Since the internet has more reach more people contact the online site, which is run by Golan.

Based on all the reviews and complaints you can clearly see Golan isn't doing a good job

He also seems to have some kind of power trip because he's been getting his coworker's accounts banned, ie - Matt and Justin

Been a customer of Golan's for years and he is great. Can't recommend him or AutoTalent enough.

That seems counterintuitive since they all represent the same shop

Justin is the ultimate plug for anything as well.

I never deal with the website. I suggest people contact Justin directly and save yourself the headache. He gets things done and is extremely responsive via text.

Same experience here with Golan which is poor. Just doesn't respond to emails and when he does its seriously lacking any relevant details.

having a nightmare of a time just trying to reach them. its either they don't pick up their calls or had me wait like 20 mins after they pick up the call.

i actually bought stuff from Justin before and he was quick to respond but this time around im not sure whats happening to that place, trying to order a down pipe for my nsx and couldn't even get through
