My car was like one of the very first ones Dave did as "Function Tuned" ... before he even had his shop, it was pretty cool... long drive for me though...
I think it's okay to discuss the issue and reflect on shops and business ethics in general. Like Gus pointed out, he made a perfect example with the general statement about tuner shops.I'm sorry but I personally think it's unfair to be bashing on someone that is not even on this site to defend themselves. Like it was said, there are two sides to every story, and everyone that has been in business for themselves (as I have) knows that there is always room for error, and it's up to the business owners to fix their wrong doings. No one is perfect. I don't know what happened and I don't intend to read that ish but I do think that if there is to be a discussion it needs to be between both parties involved, or lawyers as the case may be. NOT hashed out on a public forum where NEITHER party is involved in the discussion. Lawyers are involved, that should be the end of discussion IMO.
Hahaha.....I remember that. That trip was the reason I joined facebook, so that I could read Willy's boost chronicles!!!!My car was like one of the very first ones Dave did as "Function Tuned" ... before he even had his shop, it was pretty cool... long drive for me though...
I remember when he ran a marathon wearing gloves and short shorts. I also remember when he sanded the finish on his Z and then emptied the goddanged thing to lessen the weight. So lets not forget how effing crazy Willy is.I remember when you did the drive and posted about it. That was insane.
...and this is a beautiful machine. They have done hundreds of beautifully executed installs. This is the reason that Forged garnered so much respect in the Z/G world and people literally brought their cars to them from around the country! This is also the reason why they should be expected to deliver this kind of install every time, without fail. Somewhere along the way Forged got "too big for it's britches". We are talking about people trusting them with $40K worth of car and $25k in cash. This is the big leagues, there are no excuses. We aren't talking about Juan down the street putting a turbo on your CRX.Forged Performance did this install......
What Z1 Sir? :drink2:i know forged does good work, they wouldnt be where they are if they didnt, but they are arrogant, that's all im saying..i talk to the guys at z1, when i see something that looks questionable, **** we talk about it...i watch them work on my car everytime i go, and ask them questions while they do it..telling a guy that spends 25k he can't look at his car on a lift is ridiculous lol. i dont think they should necessarily be out of business, not unless there's malice in all of this, i GUESS they could have really been employing some sorry techs..they make some pretty nice z's, it was just discouraging to see that they placed the blame on the vendor for this..take full responsibility, do some damage control..
