BOTH SHOPS are awesome, everyone makes mistakes here and there. Also its not the persons fault who did the work trust me the guy is a genius in my eyes. How could it be the mechanics fault that the oil cooler messed up and his oil drained or whatever happened other than the fact they used zip ties to mount his oil cooler which is pretty lame but sh!t happens I guess. My oil cooler just recently started leaking to, its not the shops fault, its what happens when you buy USED parts. Gotta love max drama

I don't think he said any shop is no good. I'm thinking you are trying to do nothing more than stir up the pot. Give it a rest, this whole thing is a bit tiring. There's only one person I'd assuming that's what he's "supposed to say".

What is with the posts about professionalism...not being so professional?

I feel ya on that and I'm sorry, being criticized by someone who does not even know you, met you, or have anything to do with you pick on things they don't know enough about isn't the most touching thing. That's nothing though, being criticized by someone's boss who can't even using their own account is even worse!

You can take your car to the dealer, we have fixed cars from the dealer and so have other shops. I have seen work from other shops who bash companies like Active (funny thing is, they're going to be installing one of Active's products!) and say their DIY intake systems are better (an airbox with a HUGE unevenly cut hole under the air filter) then its you're choice.

My point is - no matter who perfect you say someone is or anyone makes themselves out to be they never are. The difference is, the people that come and tell me about the "other" shop aren't people that run to the boards to post about it, nor do I ask them to. I have heard some shops requesting people to do that, like it will make the customer's life any better by doing so...clearly what Tom said (or what people are trying to make it seem) is his own decision, and his own thoughts.

I am sorry, did not mean to insult. But what I read on this site shows some bad things, and I just wanted to know if it was true.

It is true otherwise why else post, i find that shops who arnt so caught up in the "bmw specialist" scene are normally the ones who put some pride in their work and it shows. Only so many people can go to one mechanic and mention that they had last serviced their vehicle at bimmersport, and have unchanged parts found and a about a 100 pack up zip ties under the hood. Who cares anyway....

Lol How dumb does someone have to be to not notice that the new parts were not installed, that sounds like some bogus to me that other shops talk crap because there jealous, sorry but look at half the shops in the GTA there holes in the wall with crap tools, now look at bimmersports shop. Your a troll now get out of this thread if you have nothing good to say. In the 3-4 years bimmersport has serviced my car I have been more than happy everytime I pick it up so stop bsing...

Tom,

Don't worry - there's going to be a lot of haters, but you cannot please everybody. Some people are just too persistent, Eurospec_92 used to be another board member who got banned for just having nothing to positively contribute to the board. Aaron, you should know (and so should your friend with this 'shop') that what goes around, comes around. You say just because they are not as "involved" (I am assuming you mean online) you are very misinformed, or I should say blind to the obvious.

Maybe the guy with the E36 M3 V8 should chime in on his headaches? I guess he has a completely different (and respectable) character than the others because I don't see the shop that actually COMPLETED a running vehicle (IN HOUSE, and not sent out) bash the one that never did.

Nero, you want the truth? Ever wonder why the "project_e36" username was soooo inclined on ripping on the work DANIMAL had done? I guess since he doesn't work there anymore he could let you all know.

Jon, you seem to worry to much about other shops.

You shoud worry about yourself and the jobs you do at your work.

The last sentence has nothing to do with anything remotely even close to do with kevin325's situation. Why mention two other parties which have nothing to do with work that was completed inside of your shop.


Its hard enough to try and make out what exactly what you're rambling on about, but some of us, and I'm sure many maxbimmer members in general would like to know what really happened, and you're definitely not helping your case by mentioning other shops etc...

Ask project e36 what his ex boss did on his account

What does he have to explain bout Kevin325 I know more about it than Jon as Kevin is a good buddy of mine, he got into a accident and the oil cooler snapped off causing his oil to leak and later on his motor started ticking, yes this is due to using tie straps as if it was properly welded with a bracket holding the oil cooler it most likely would not have snapped off causing his oil to leak. Shit happens I guess but also people do no know that bimmersport them selves did not source the engine or other parts for Kevin or my swap.. honestly you all need to grow up, look how many cars come out of bimmersport daily perfectly fine, do you know how many motors have been popped from other shops though? Plently!

P.s. HPF themselves told me the mechanics at bimmersport are competent and do amazing work but I guess you trolls know best!
