I've been following this thread with some interest. I have to say, this is the lamest attempt at an "explanation" I've ever come across. You make it sound like posting a TUV certificate here would be the equivalent of uploading top secret State Department documents on Wikileaks or something. You really think everyone here is a dumbass, don't you?

I just did a google images search for "TUV Certificate" and got over 90,000 results. That's right, ninety thousand. I think it's fair to say that your concern over somebody trying to "copy and forge" your non-existing certificate is rather hilarious considering that there are literally thousands of these documents from other companies already in the public domain.

On top of that, you already posted a picture of your TUV certificate...or rather something that you claimed was a TUV certificate. Once it was pointed out that the document you claimed to be a TUV certificate was nothing of the sort, you all of a sudden became very concerned about this whole supposed "copy and forge" threat. Again, you must think we are all pretty dumb...

Don't worry, Matt, I won't buy from ADV1. Thanks to your marketing campaign, when my new M3 arrives, I'll buy from Carlos. He should pay you for advertising for him.

As the thread you mentioned states the moderators aren't allowing us simply because the owner of the company is the same as at 360 Forged - not due to any quality or open complaints with ADV.1.

The 360 forged issues have all been resolved years ago and all parties made full as it was one of the condition of the sale of the company to the new owners. Anyone who feels they are still owed anything just drop me and email and we'll cut you a check today.

Well now 360 Forged has been getting calls from customers saying their 360's cracked and they want them repaired. Problem is 360 never built those wheels but they are basically forced to fix them because the customers can't understand they got scammed by Rennen.

Want more...every cracked wheel is this five spoke split design!
You mean when Jordan didn't pay for wheels that were cut for him and never paid? Could that be why Rennen took the designs?

Buying wheels from Jodan is major fail.

I thought this was the bombshell of the post. I have always said Morr is the most legit wheel mfg in terms of their ties to our community and the product quality. Congrats Carlos.

As for ADV.1, take note of the above. No pulling teeth required. Stop BSing, please. If it took more than 5 seconds of effort to produce the documents the community originally politely asked for, then you're lying or at least embellishing. It's fairly obviously there is nothing confidential about the certificates. You have nothing to lose, only customers to gain.

I actually read through all of the post and were simply appalled by the responses from ADV.1. They are selling their wheels from 5k and up and they can't even prove their wheels are legitimate. I've always had a bad feeling about them and now probably will never buy from them. I've always stuck with Volks, Work, ADVANS, BBS, and now HRE. Even my Advans which were not forged but flow formed are 1000000x better than these ADV.1 forged monoblock wheels. I have yet to see anybody that goto track with them and aside from form over function these wheels have proved absolutely nothing to me. My shop actually called the LA warehouse to buy 4 set of centercaps from ADV.1 to replace a set for a customer and they told them 200 bucks a piece to replace. This has nothing to do with TUV certificate and such but rather a standard in business practices. 200 bucks a piece for a center cap....WOW

We don't charge 200.00 a piece for replacement center caps.... heck we don't charge 200.00 a piece for our custom engraved ones. Replacement center caps are free of charge and our production office in LA doesn't quote prices as they aren't involved with any sales of any kind.

Negative. Its up to the buyer who needs to be educated and ask the RIGHT questions. They have every right to sell their products..whether you buy them or not.

Hey bro, I'm not sure. But in all honesty, invest in a set of good wheels. Anything from Volks, Work, BBS, HRE, Advans got my vote. Even new players like Morr I would endorse because they actually took the time to design and produce a quality product that we use our hard earn money to pay for.

I also want to elaborate the quality of Volks and Work...The Japanese are absolutely amazing with their wheels. Even the best of BBS are made there.

I agree the buyer needs to be educated, and for the most part on this forum buyers are, which is why there is so much frustration with this particular company. Sure, they have a right to sell their products, assuming they're doing so compliant with the law (and I'm not necessarily saying they aren't), but if they continually disrupt this forum and make statements with which others take issue or find misleading, then they shouldn't have that right here.

+1, LOL, I thought ADV.1 was a subdivision of Advan. Shows you how much I pay attention to this stuff. I remembered there were some drama with Morr back in the day too.
