P.P.S My caliper supplier is the best in the industry, they do Most of the race cars in the touringcar.ca championship, they are not open to general public, and they only do business if you have a substantial amount of work to keep them busy, or to put it simpler, they dont do business with small time champs like you Fil.

If you are stupid enough to think that i would put my business name on the line for a cheapo brake job then you need to smarten up pal. My shop has been here for almost 20 years, why do you think that is???

Mike.

SOLD bro...$240 for the set of 4 sounds good to me. Where and when do I take all 4 of my calipers?

You Have PM also.

Thanks.

My previous screen name is Blackedout_e36, everyone can run a search and see exactly what happened between the two of us, im not hiding anything.

Nice try to low blow me ONCE AGAIN Fil.

All the years of experience speaks for itself, ive never had to do any sort of advertising other than the phone book.
All my success rides on word of mouth, i have success stories coming out of my ass, i also have dealerships sending me brandnew cars (kia, hyundai, Mercedes, nissan)with problems they cant diagnose. My customers come from as far west as downtown toronto, and also as far from kingston ontario from the east.

But hey, you can sit there on your computer and hide from the facts all you want but the truth still remains.. you are a small time shop owner that doesnt know much about what your doing. After all if your such a bmw expert, why would you have to run to Charlie everytime u need a question answerd??
At the most, you know how to turn a couple screws, and lay some fiberglass, but thats just about where your knowledge and know how ends. Thanks again for your effort to bash my shop, you can keep doing it over and over and over again, infact id love to see you keep trying because i will get more satisfaction to see that your wrong.

You are a funny guy! If i wanted to do that, i would just tell people how you missrepresented the E34 that a memer all the way from Ottawa was interesed in! Bet you didnt think i would hear about that, but guess what, word of mouth works very well...And i do know more people in the industry then you EVER will! Unlike your local shop, i got customers WORLD wide, and quess what, its nothing but good rep!

I have people driving from Montreal and Quebec city to pick up parts (they can post if they want!)...Also many from the US, so i ROFL @ "kingston ontario"

Go on ebay, check the stats. I do sales from California to Alaska, Miami to Hawai...name the place, i got customers there!

So nice try on the "small time shop" bashing, but you gotta come up with something new!

oh no, watch out.. big boy Fil sold a cheap kit in alaska. I could jump on the internet and sell my whole part inventory to the world, but its just not worth my time. I leave the bitch work for the bitches.
Im done arguing with you and your lack of intelligence.

Sorry for getting off topic, my fault.

Rebuild or new? rebuild caliper is just as good as a new caliper only its half the cost. Ive done hundreds of comparisons (mainly on japanese and domestics) and have had very good experiences with the rebuilds. The only time i have ever used new calipers is when the customer specifically asks for a new one and doesnt mind paying the rediculous price for them.

I'd love to upgrade but that would also mean investing in a set of rims. I don't think E46 calipers will fit under an OEM E36 alloy. Unfortunately I have tons of shit to fix before I consider rims. Though I'd love a set of ADR's or Mille Miglias'...

The LOL was completely unnecessary. You mention below that you run an honest and reputable/respectable business, but this quoted post, along with lots of other BS posts that followed are completely shallow...

I have never had dealing with you, and my opinion of you is completely limited to this thread, and I do think very poorly of you. Why did you change your screen name?

As for Fil @ Eurostyle, I have dealt with him many times and he's always been more then helpful and knowledgeable. I would recommend him to anyone, and have recommended him to many.

If I was in the market for rebuilt calipers, I would give Fil the business
