We at 500 MADNESS pride ourselves on providing our fellow enthusiasts with high quality items, knowledgeable and friendly service at a competitive price.
Quality - Products offered by 500 MADNESS are chosen for their quality, function and value. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied we will gladly accept the product back within 7 days of receiving your product for a full refund*. Please see our full Return Policy below for details.
Service - Our team members are experts in their field and work with the items we offer on daily basis. We install on premises at both of our locations so we are only a phone call away if you need some help. We keep the majority of our inventory on hand (special orders excluded) for quick fulfillment of your order.
We offer the best products at the best price available on every item in our store. All prices are listed in U.S. dollars. Orders placed with us will be charged in U.S. dollars. If you live outside the U.S., this charge is converted by your bank into your local currency and should appear on your credit card statement in that currency.
We will match the published price of any US supplier* -- even their current sales prices! If you find an item advertised at a lower price, make a notation in your online order, call or email us at email@example.com with your price match request (see terms and details below). We'll offer you the SAME item at the SAME price, plus a little extra something (for your trouble)!
If you've already purchased the item from us, we'll even price match (for store credit only) as long as you contact us with your request within 7 days of placing your order.
This offer is restricted to identical items offered for sale in writing or on the web. When making your price match request, you must provide us with a link to the competitor's Internet URL for the item, a copy of the written ad or written quotation, which must include Supplier's part number, description and price.
Price Match Terms and Fine Print:
In some cases we may choose not to price match; here are some reasons why:
- The competitor's product is not an exact match (identical manufacturer & model) with ours.
- The competitor with the lower price does not have the item in stock at their warehouse.
- The competitor's total price (including shipping, handling, taxes, etc.) is higher.
- The competitor's product is used, refurbished, reconditioned, or a display model.
- The competitor is not selling in US dollars.
- The product is a clearance or closeout item.
- The item is not found within the first 10 items listed on major search engine results.
- The competitor is not manufacturer authorized or has advertised below the manufacturers minimum allowed price for the item.
* Qualified U.S. Suppliers are established businesses that routinely and regularly sell the item to be matched from an established physical storefront or warehouse.
While we endlessly aim to maintain the accuracy of item availability, descriptions and availability, we reserve the right to correct errors. We reserve the right to choose not to honor this offer.
How to Request a Price Match:
Please send a separate email with the subject header of PRICE MATCH REQUEST. Provide the competitor's name, part number, item description, URL link to the exact item and the competitor's price along with your request to price match. Once we confirm, we will match the price (plus a little extra), you will be contacted with a confirmation and directions on how to place your order for the price request. In the event we cannot match the price, we will notify you by email with a reason why and give you options.
Alternatively, you may call us with your request. We'd love to talk with you and it will be much quicker. We generally respond to price match requests by email within one business day.

Once you register, our online store will calculate your shipping costs and if you agree, simply process payment for your order and we will ship accordingly.
We do our best to estimate International Shipping Costs. Due to the fact that we currently ship to over 100+ countries it is difficult to estimate the exact shipping amount for each order. We do our best to provide an accurate shipping quote, but at times the actual shipping costs may be higher. If the costs are substantially higher then we collected we will contact you with the revised shipping total. You will then have a choice of paying the additional fees and we will promptly ship out the order or if you choose to pass we will promptly issue you a full refund and cancel the transaction.
If you are placing an order from outside the continental United States, please contact us directly for a shipping quote at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to check and respond within 24 hours.

If your order consists of more than 3 items please contact us for reduced shipping costs. Please note for some international orders, a reduction of shipping costs due to package size or necessary insurance, may or may not apply but we will definitely help if we can.

We endeavor to stock most of the items we sell. The automatic shipment notification email you receive will identify backordered items and indicate the approximate date we expect to receive the item at our warehouse.
Shipment of items backordered is dependent upon our obtaining them from our various suppliers, many of which are overseas. Consolidated air freight shipments are made to us monthly from Europe, which means obtaining the parts you order may take up to 2-6 weeks. If a part is backordered we will notify you at the time you place the order and also inform you of the estimated time of arrival.
Be sure to contact us if you wish to cancel your backorder to avoid unnecessary shipping and restocking charges once the item(s) you've ordered is shipped.
Some items are made available on a Special Order basis. These are typically items with very low demand that we choose not to keep in inventory, or items that are custom built or built to order. These items are ordered from their suppliers solely to fulfill your order. As such, these items require a 100% non-refundable deposit at the time the order is placed. Because of the nature of Special Order items, your order cannot be canceled once your order is accepted and deposit taken, nor can returns be accepted once the item has shipped.
Carbon Fiber Items:
When ordering Carbon Fiber items please be sure you have the correct item(s) and please reach out to us with any questions prior to ordering. Carbon Fiber items are specialty made, low volume products that take extensive amounts of time to manufacture, package and ship. Due to this we will charge a 20% restocking charge on all carbon fiber items that are returned. Many items require professional installation to install. It may or may not be possible (or be difficult) to install some of these items at home without the use of a professional installation facility and people that are knowledgeable on how to install custom carbon fiber parts.
