Recall campaign? Lol. More like sweep it under the rug, just like a thread last night about yet another GC 2.0 failure. The only reason they owned up to that GC 1.0 problem is because we identified it to the public, with the silver bullet of Texts from Chris admitting to it. Still, there was no formal recall. This was all well documented on bummerboost here:Yes, VTT did a recall campaign. But so has BMW, several times. Does that make all BMWs from 06-11 junk? I would hardly think so.
For the record they are still bobbing and weaving around the current GC 2.0 debacle, and not sure if Chris will be putting anything about that in texts anymore...
We began production RB Next Gens 9/2015, literally 200+ of sets were sold over 3.5 years, and we have had maybe 4 failures TOTAL on them- all self inflicted in on way or the other. Never one time have we seen a set be rebuilt more than once, nor has there been any warranty issues. Out of the ~4 that have came back, one just last week, from early 2016, and even they were fine until the first owner went ST then installed on another car that was riddled with problems and somehow one snapped a shaft (installer suspected collapsed rear inlet).Also, I've heard of plenty of RB turbo failures in the FB groups, one person of which has gone through 3 sets of Next Gens(?) in a year and had warranty claim issues just as bad or worse than you've heard from the other vendors.
If you want to get a complete forthright no exceptions update on what we see come back, you can simply get a month by month play by play here:
The short version is that we actively send about 15 new orders on average per month, year after year, since early 2010. Yes, over a full decade now. And of those and including our entire shipment portfolio since we see about 0-1 set per month come back.
And while we are sure you will find some poor reviews, over a full decade of shipments, we certainly have NEVER once had any thread pulled down or even insinuated in the slightest that it be pulled down... rest assured this is NOT the norm for any other vendor. I guess you can say it is just rolled up into our very poor marketing strategy. Anyway what is also not the norm is 10 full years of N54 product shipments, whereas most of the competition started around late 2015/early 2016... and 10 years of shipments vs. 4 years of shipments is a pretty damn big difference in product accountability.
