Why use customer's cars as test mules? Haven't people realized yet that this usually never works out? And, if they were to be test mules, why were they not tested on a dyno, monitoring the motors vital signs and NOT allowing them to blow? You don't have to let motors blow to find their threshold as was posted in the OP, you can monitor them and make adjustments to prevent that, that's what tuning is no?

come on - you are beating a dead horse. G-Power got a hit during final testing the prototype kits, corrected the issues and it's all good now. what do you expect to be the outcome of this thread ?

sometimes customers get a big discount and agree that their cars might be test mules as sponsored cars. however I don't know if this has been the case here.

Now the motive of the other methanol thread is making some sense.

This is a poor attempt at restoring G-power's image in this M3 forum.

Also notice these threads have been created by companies that sell G-power products. First Evolve and now Technik.

This post wreaks of obvious envy . Don't hate on Josh just because he had the first SC M3. This post just makes you look petty, and uninformed of the details of the transaction.

You got exactly what you deserved. Oh and congrats on being the first owner with a S/C M3, hope it was worth it. You're lucky they replaced your engine.

Don't need or want this type of drama on the forum and both sides have chimed in. Closed.
