First, you blame the buyer

So the life expectency on your wheels is 1-year?

Then you blame the supplier

What good does this do? It admits no liability whatsoever. Michael Beyer wisely has legal counsel.


Then you blame everyone else

This is an ADV.1 specific part failure. You put your name and your name only on the product.

This is a funny analogy to me. When Dell has a recall, I don't think they immediately point the finger at their supplier. It is bad business. It is unprofessional.

Most goods we buy these days have one or more suppliers not necessarily the company selling. If my DCT has mechanical issues, is BMW going to jump on the forum and blame Getrag? Probs not. And I'm not going to be calling their customer service; I'll be calling BMW's. I'll be complaining about BMW not doing enough R&D, testing, etc. It'll taint my view of BMW, who is again the ultimate assembler, seller, and owner of the product - just like you.
