@lonestarautodesign

So you up-fit Mercedes vehicles in the UK and then re-sell the removed OEM parts here in the US where the demand is higher. That's smart but why distance yourself from your own business?

Harp Automotive Corporation’s sister company Lonestar Auto Design, which is based in the UK, has specialised in the upfitting of Mercedes Metris/V-Class since 2008.

Hugely dishonest of you to post like this when you have a relationship with Harp. It's actually lying.

Well to give lonestarauto the benefit of the doubt, maybe they just don’t know about forum rules/etiquette.

There is no reason not to share information about all the cool stuff they sell. It is just better to be open about their business interest in it.

They should do whatever is required to be listed as a vendor and maybe even get a vendor thread going that they can openly advertise on. There is a vendor rules post that can get them started.

Yes, I agree with you for the most part, but this person is clearly trying to make people believe they don't know the other company which is just plain wrong regardless of forum rules. It's being deceptive needlessly. Honestly, they could have done two things to make this better 1) don't register with the name of the company as your user name 2) just farking say you supply the seats and where to get them.

I see your point. Definitely needless. I just figured they weren’t completely trying to be dishonest since they were not trying too hard to hide their connection with the username.

Thank you for the comments. I have read through our comments on this thread Lonestar and Harp Automotive are two completely different companies Lonestar is a European Upfitter, Harp Automotive is a US based seating and accessory company They are run as two completely separate companies The common denominator is that both companies have the same CEO Please accept my apologies if my posts have come across as misleading, this was never the intension At the end of the day, all we are trying to do is offer our wealth of 12 years in the Metris field, and provide US metris owners parts and products not currently available to them We have looked at becoming a vendor here on this forum, but have had difficulties setting this up We will revisit this again Sincere apologies all if you feel you have been misled in any way

I am on the ethics board for my city. I fail to see how ignoring the forum rules and lying is an acceptable way to advertise regardless of intention. You did mislead. There is no question after your clarification.

Do us a favor, ok? I don’t mind you as a company providing a germane answer to a question, but please admit that you’re a company selling such things
