Important Update: Effective January 1, 2005, Porsche and BMW have changed their return policy for companies like us who provide dealer-only parts to the public. Porsche and BMW both now impose a 15% restocking fee on dealer-only parts that are returned by us. In addition, they are adhering to a strict limit on the amount of time an item can be returned.

To continue our ability to offer these parts to our customers, we must pass on these new return requirements. Effective March 10th, we will be passing on this 15% restocking fee on any Porsche & BMW "dealer-only" and "special-order" parts that we do not regularly stock. In addition, these items must be returned within 30 days of their purchase, or we will not be able to accept the return back (Porsche & BMW will refuse the return). Unfortunately, this is a nation-wide policy change that is imposed on all dealers as well (i.e. if you went to the parts window at the dealer, they will require the 15% restocking fee on all returns). We are not happy about this new policy, but we are forced to adhere to it if we are to continue to provide these parts to our customers.

What is Your Return Policy?

All items in this catalog or sold by Pelican Parts are warranted to be free from defects from the manufacturers material, and workmanship prior to installation. Any alteration, race or improper use will void this warranty. Warranty is limited, at our option, to the replacement, repair, or credit of the defective merchandise. The determination of all warranty claims will be at the sole discretion of Pelican Parts. Warranty does not cover any direct or indirect costs, such as labor or damages, arising from the use of our products or parts.

All competition and racing parts are sold "AS IS" without any expressed warranty whatsoever and are non-returnable unless these items are authorized for return 48 hours after delivery and are returned in new, unused and sellable condition (see returns). Implied warranties, including warranties of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose are excluded. The entire risk as to quality and performance of such parts is with the buyer. Should such parts prove defective following their purchases, the buyer, and not the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer, assumes the entire cost of necessary servicing or repair.

Special order parts are not returnable for any reason outside of our normal replacement warranty. This includes all custom-made products such as car covers and floormats.

We are committed to providing the best customer satisfaction possible. We will gladly refund or replace any defective item and most non-defective items. However, we reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of up to 15% of the order. We do not pay or reimburse the costs for shipping returns back to our location. Within 30 days of receipt of your order, you may return products that:

  • Are in their original packaging

  • Have original manufacture information

  • Are not used, installed, or disassembled

  • Are not damaged due to incorrect installation

  • Do not have missing parts, hardware or instructions

The following are not returnable, except for warranty repair or replacement:

  • Custom or special orders (Such as custom: floor mats, car covers, carpet kits etc.)

  • Tools

  • Books, Posters, or Automotive repair manuals

  • Electrical Parts and Components (Such as: ECU's, relays, air mass meters, ignition coils etc.)

Once we have received your return, conducted an inspection of the return, and verified that your return meets the above guidelines, a full refund for the parts sales amount will be issued. All applicable sales taxes will be refunded. Shipping charges are non-refundable.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee of up to 25% of the order for orders that meet the return criteria and are returned after 30 days but not to exceed 90 days. Returns that fall outside of the above listed criteria will be decided upon on a case-by-case basis.

You must notify us prior to returning any items - all unauthorized / un-notified returns will be refused and sent back. Items incorrectly shipped to Pelican Parts will be refused & returned. Items not purchased from Pelican Parts will not be accepted.

If we ship your order to you and it is undeliverable or refused by the recipient, then it will be returned to us for processing. Refused orders are costly in that they need to be picked, packed and shipped. Pelican Parts incurs the costs for shipping both to you and for the return to us. Upon return of your order to us, we will issue credit to you for the returned parts less the outbound and incoming shipping costs and a nominal restocking fee.

  • Core return shipping charges are the responsibility of the customer. These are non-refundable.
