I'm always amazed at when I bring the car in for something routine and it turns out he finds a whole slew of problems that I didn't even see before when working with the car. My personal experience started out alright, I had some issues with the work he did but initially didn't warrant me questioning if he did it or not and now I'm left wondering if any of this was actually done and he just took my money because I took his word for it. But seems like he's been charging people for work that you can't really see unless you spend the time or money to take it apart.
I also have good experience with Matt.
Bought 18 index 12 injectors from him before the price went up and 4 came back as faulty a few months ago.
I contacted Matt, got a RMA doc and shipped them back. I cheaped out on the shipping and shipped them w/o door to door tracking.
Surprise surprise, they haven't arrived..
Matt could've just let me deal with it but he stepped up and told me he'd make an exception and warranty these anyway.
Should be getting them next week. That's great customer service in my book.
I hope it works out for you, but since it has yet to pan out, please update us on the result.
Well, you were right. I'll just leave the conversation here :Hopefully he doesnt claim surprise surprise right back and say he sent them but doesnt. Maybe he reads this and it increases your odds of not getting screwed.
Yooo omg dude i feel your pain !!! Same shit happened to me ! I got all the text as proof as he owes me $2,635. I got the same start too, hmu to "sponsor me" then when i had car issues with a knock noise that ended up being the ac compressor clutch, he told me i had rod knock, so i went to him which turned into needing a new motor due to low compression in cylinders 2 & 6 and fuel mixed with oil was his diagnosis. He recommended i get index 12 injectors a new motor, so i got a used 65k mile motor from him that he said "for me he will do all gaskets and seals for free" from what i see they are all new gaskets. This was mid june got the motor on july 26th. After that i ordered all parts from him such as inlets, outlets, stock turbos, injectors and other miscellaneous parts. This was on july 26th. Paid all in full. On August 15st i was told he had ALL MY PARTS READY. When i went i got the excuse of the locked cabinet also in between the waiting process i requested the stock turbos ne refunded for frankenturbos... BIG MISTAKE. Matt told me he had a good connection with Doug from frankenturbos and he could get me a "deal never to be repeated" so i took the deal. 2 months later still received no parts and always got excuses on how turbos were back ordered etc... You guys get the point... So i went there finally after being feed up with excuses. Mind you process started mid june and i waited patiently till late Septemberish before finally going to his shop. When i got there he had told me if the stuff wasnt it that week he would refund me everything. CLEARLY MEANING HE HAD NOTHING !!! so i waiting to be paypal refunded as he said he wud refund the turbos on paypal and the rest cash. So now we are up to date. October 26th 2018. I just got $1060 in cash yesterday at his shop. And only $260 "cleared paypal" according to Matt so he owes me 1315 still from PayPal which he told me yesterday if it didnt clear PayPal i could pick up cash today... & How ironic but he wasnt there today. So i will be going tomorrow aa he stated that i can pick it up tomorrow. Wish me luck boys. This guy is a fuckin joke & scam artist. To top it off he wanted me to film for him as i have a Youtube channel with my buddy building our cars my 335i & his 2jz swapped 240sx. So i will be sure to post on there and every forum i can about his shitty scam business. Fyi i work for police and he knows and he still did this lol so yea... I seen 5 people already say this same story on this post alone in under 24 hours so i can only imagine if we get this out to the public even more how many people will come forward with the same story ! Good luck my 335i brothers !
