See original post below.....
.
It appears our mystery 5 Spurs GT500 shifter dial has been solved. After posting my below experience it appears that one of our fellow GT500 owners, and friend, @marklboris sent this to me as a gift. It also appears that through the process of him writing his own review it got posted under my name. The guys at 5 Spurs will pull down his review in my name so I can leave my own.
.
I went ahead and installed the shifter dial today and snapped some pics. Installation is easy and definitely adds a better tactile experience to the shifter dial. Take your time with the 3M double sided adhesive as you can easily deform it. They include several of them so you can retry, especially if you have fat fingers. I found application to the OEM dial first to be easiest.
.
At any rate I hope this clears up any potential shade on 5 Spurs. I definitely owe Mark a beer.
.
Enjoy the quick pictures below. The shifter dial is a would bang.

Going about my normal business today and see that I had a package delivered to me from the UK sent from 5 Spurs. I had no idea who this was so just left it outside as I headed out the door. Pontificated on who might have sent me something and still could not place it. Got home and opened up the package to find this weird doohickey inside..... Still at a loss....
.
I did a google search and found that 5 Spurs created an aluminum shifter dial for the GT500. Sure enough. that is what I received.

Get in touch with company explain to them what happened and demand they tell you how they got your info. This is forced marketing. Doesn’t matter if the product is top notch. They have your identity and have used it for a review and they know where you live. Also check to see if the product was made in China or not.

I'd be pissesd at the fake review. That isn't cool. Sending free stuff is OK by me though. That's a $200 item!

I just got an armrest from them, excellent work. I don't see the need for fake reviews.

Just sending it to you for free: nice. You must be one of those "influencers" we hear about.
Faking a review in your name: really pissed.

They're an UK firm and have a good reputation I believe, so hard to believe they would fake a review in your name. Would definitely contact them to find out what, if anything, they know about this.

Had the W been spelled out, then maybe, but don't shoot first and ask questions later.....

I think reaching out to Kevin first might have been more appropriate.

Knowing what you know, how do you feel and how do you proceed? Install the part? Trash it? Review it? Send a contact to them? Anyone dealt with this company before or also received one?
Looks like @marklboris didn't give you the memo. This was ordered by Mark as a surprise gift to Terrance.

Mark wrote his own review under the order for Terrance so shows up as if Terrance wrote it. I'll take it down so he can submit it again under his named order.

Wow, I just woke up and saw and read this thread. I feel like a jerk not letting Terrance know something was coming in the mail for him. I have had quite a bit going on taking care of my 90 year old parents and it slipped my mind. Kevin must have shipped it out right away as it came quite fast. About the review, yes I replied back to a review request I got from Kevin but didn't even think to look it was from the order I placed for Terrance's. I just let Terrance know what was going on. I am sorry for this misunderstanding and want everyone to know working with Kevin has been great and his products are outstanding.

Side note: I sent Terrance this gift thinking it was something he didn't know existed and would be excited to have. He has been so helpful to me with the wheels on my car which I believe are the best wheels I have ever purchased and I have purchased quite a few over the years. He is also helping me design some new wheels for the Mach-E I have on order.

Look at that, a good news story! Happy to see the full disclosure and hope @5spurs isn't affected by the negative publicity. Back on my "good supplier" list.

Thanks for correcting that. I will get some information up on this later.

No shots fired, just the data I had up until this point. Sure enough, it got the answer I needed.
