btw ive heard of many horror stories at ur 'alternate' shop. pm me if you wanna know.
If you think I'm going around and changing alias' every week then i really don't know what to say to you.
It's not always the same 2-3 people bashing. I just listed 5 people complaining about how they paid this "shop" and never got the serviced which they deserved. I am not saying every single customer is getting screwed, but there is a lot of us - so no it's not the same "1 guy" complaining every single week with a different alias.
I won't even post up about my problem anymore how about that?? - here's the 5 people which I listed earlier. Since you are proud customer of this shop which you represent, can you please chime in and address the following issues that OTHER customers brought up:
"Brought my car there for a suspension install and a couple little odds and ends.
Suspension was royally messed:
-camber plates backwards
-rear ride height adjusters installed upside down
-didn't tighten front swaybar bushing bracket (bolts almost totally backed out
-coil over sleeve on front passenger strut spun loosely (trying to adjust height would just spin the whole sleeve),
-alignment way out of wack (was given a sheet with handwritten measurements, I didn't trust after seeing the other issues and took it to an alignment shop to be properly adjusted)
-replaced O2 sensor wasn't tightened down (it was loss and rattling)
Its a shame to see Bimmersport has such ongoing issues. My experience was enough to never return."
"There are all sorts of strange garages... I had a guy come over on Friday who has been taking his car to a well known BMW shop that advertises here. He has various problems since they did his s50B32 swap. Recently it has not been idling and running well. They told him it's the MarkD software. The car comes here, what do I see? a hole the size of a penny in the rubber boot between the MAF and intake manifold ... I don't know why that was not fixed before they look for all sorts of other explainations for his problem. "
"Haha... you should see the swapped car here.... same thing, S50B32... and it is the same disaster. I lost all respect for that shop. Turning a blind eye to the way things were installed or solutions taken for various parts, just the sheer amount of loose and missing bolts is appalling."
"the same shop you guys are talking about also forgot to put the gasket for the oil filter on my car when they did the oil change. oil was pouring out during hard acceleration. they told me either pay for the tow fee or drive it back to the shop like that. NOW WHEN I tried to sell the car everyone thinks my car has problems since there is oil EVERYWHERE in the bay and under the chassis they also messed up my sisters X5"
"Add me to the list. Thankfully I didn't get as royally screwed as some of you.
-Reverse lights not working after engine swap
-Lost fuse pick
-Lost wheel lock (had to hammer them off)
-Broken/missing header bolts
-Stripped engine cover
-Front bumper undertray screwed in
-Front control arm bushing pre-loaded"
I'll also bite the bullet and go ahead and post a few other people who have complained about this god like shop:
"Car runs amazing now, they fixed alot of issues that bimmersport created. They re tuned the cams as they were not done right from them. Also alot of small things that looked liked it was rushed together. But what killed me is that I paid all this money to them and after the head was installed and things were not running right charlie would turn to me and say what do you want me to do now.
paid big and good money to them but the service was lacking to detail and care. I also found that it took forever to get things done as they were learning half the stuff from my car. Or that I was tired of not having and License person working on the car. Its o.k to have a apprentice but not to be left alone to work on cars as if they are license. You know what I mean."
"I have a good idea what they are capable of as people tell me and I have to send them to other shops to get the problems fixed. One guy goes in for a timing chain tensioner on his 540, and it runs like crap after. A few valves were bent in the process.. but they said the car came in like that. I have other fine stories also.
Listen to this one: I heard that they installed a meth kit on a 335i but just ran the hose into the intake, they didn't even install a meth nozzle!"
So please tell me how it's the same person always complaining or changing alias'? Just becuase I speak my mind and I'm not scared to talk about my experience makes me the same person complaining? Instead of Bruce doing IP checks, he should do some sponsor checks and see what this "shop" is doing to his members that helped him build this forum - but I guess $$$ talks.
I thought you guys were gonna let this die down but you keep bumping it - it's really working against you. And please do share your "horror" stories - same one you posted on E46Fanatics? lol - I should use the rebuttal "all shops make mistakes".
I guess I will make this my "last post" as well - unless you guys keep posting non sense that does not RELATE to the problem that this shop has with previous customers and keep bringing up "other" shops who are doing their own thing and not minding what these people do. If not, we can do this dance all year.
