Id like to know where Jon gets off thinking I don't have a BMW either, this guy must be some magical guru. Not only is he terrible at explaining himself properly, but he simply lacks professionalism.

What ever is produced in your shop, is your shops responsibility as much as the mechanics.

And for Tom, no hating, I'm not biased in any ways, this thread just made me ask questions after the other thread I had been reading was locked.

Tom , so you're saying if this happened to you, you would be ok with it?
I don't those guys are hating, everyone is entitled to his or her opinion, after all this is a public board. It sounds like you represent this fellow Jon and his shop, from how you are wording things.
I also do not understand how RMP is supposed to know this oil cooler was mounted with tie straps. When some one pays for a service, should they assume it's done with tie straps? No I don't think so. Im sure RMP assumed the work was done PROPERLY. if they could read minds, and have X-ray vision, they would have seen the chosen method of installation by the old tech at Jon shop, and informed the client. If every mechanic had to do a fine tooth inspection on every car out there, assuming all the work was bad, nobody would make any money ....

In the End, from being relatively new to this Toronto based board... And based on the info provided..would not ever use this shop, based simply on how they are handling it, and how Jon is representing his shop. Alot more professionalism would have been expected.....

So this guy kevin, what's going on with his car? Everyone on Here is blaming everyone else, nobody actually cares if the problem is getting resolved????

Well, im currently the second owner of a car that has been swaped and s/ced from bimmersport and i believe its been serviced at bimmer sport for like 4-5 years or something like that, and after taking the whole car apart.... i have nothing bad to say. everything was done really clean, only had trouble taking the long ass bolt that holds the s/c'er bracket and alternator, but a quick search on bf.c shows that its common with the AA kit.


Good job guys

our family has been servicing 4 different bmw's we've had over the past 6 years at bimmersport, and have never had any problems. (including many family friends that we referred) Had a problem once where my valve cover gasket was leaking after some service; they replaced it for free.. that was my only problem lolllll. this is the typical forum effect, the 1% of customers that have had a bad experience post on forums and get all dramatic, whereas the 99% of customers that are happy aren't gonna come and say 'hi all, my car is running well today. have a good day.'

You all gotta understand were just human, mistakes will be made, no and then, and yes there are that 1% and yes if it was my car i would be mad too, but don't kill a mans hard work and years of building a company up just because a few mistakes were made.

Talk about confusion! I went back to the other threads with "Kevin325" to read all about this situation. Being new here, and a big fan of consumer reports this info is real useful.

One thing I don't get is if Jon made all those offers since the car left, why didn't the car go back? Or at the time why didn't the OP make a counter offer? After reading all the threads so many people have missed the obvious and just keep blurbing out non-sense! I guess it pays off to be an accountant...all that number crunching did me some good.

EDIT: I just made my appointment with BMW Autohaus (sorry little guys...I don't want the headache)

LoL You are funny. Why don't you go to bimmersport instead of dealer, and you can find out why he no want to go back.

You really think dealer won't give Headache? LOL..

If I had to go to dealer I would sell my BMW. Its too much money and bad service.

So you're saying you get what you pay for? I guess this Kevin kid only paid $10 for his swap, if that's the case..

Well Nero, I actually never had a problem with the dealer and for me, money is not the issue. I really do like the loaner car, and service they offer.

To be honest I'm going follow what damaneke said if I do choose one of these shops. I mean, the only people I have pointing me away from "Bimmersport" is 3 people in this thread. I know "Kevin325" had a bad experience, but what I get is that this is under old staff...so I wonder what has changed with the new staff?

V8Specialist...so where do you suppose I go?

There is quite a few shops around with excellent customer service, but this is not the thread for that, as its in bimmersport section.

To be quite honest, that's totally your call. Somewhere that provides quality work for a decent price, with a good service history. Check out some of the other sponsors here, perhaps start a poll... Get some opinions .. Just a suggestion

Thought i would mention this here as this member was quite involved in this discussion. Username "NERO" was banned permanently due to using the username "NERO" as an alias. I will not disclose their actual username to defy embarrassment.

It never seems to end ... so much sh*t seems to be said about this "shop". It would be so much more convenient for me (due to where I live) to take my car to this "shop" in order to get the engine swap that I want to get done.

But it's stories like this that really can ruin a shop's reputation. To try and place all the blame on a tech rather than accept it as a collective shop and business is truly childish. People would have a lot more respect if the shop accepts responsibility for their actions.

My engine swap will be done at RMP, no question about it.

tie straps.... lol what a f'n joke.
