✪ Alekshop | Helping customer to fix a bad quality job...

We had a chance to work on a brand new 2011 e93 M3 this week ...

Prior to bringing car to us, our customer went to the shop he was using in the past to get the NEW Eisenmann Race system installed with Custom Connecting Pipes.

Well, when I got the car we all were pretty shocked when we saw the custom connecting pipes and how it all was installed. Something like that should not be installed on any M3s ever.

Before:



Custom Piping









Just to make sure the car leaves the shop in a good shape , we installed the new Akrapovic system

Vorsteiner Diffuser and 12/15mm RS T spacers were added to give it a clean and balanced look.

























Aleks.

I happened to be at Alekshop when this car was being raised on the lift for "Exhaust Installation Quality Verification" and let me tell you, I was shocked!!!!! I feel really bad for the customer who had this done, such a nice guy and his car, yea, good choice on exterior color!!

Although the exhaust "work" was shocking, I have to say it was pretty funny watching Aleks try to put into words what he thought was done, it was hard to look away from the exhaust. The pics really don't do justice to what this exhaust must have gone through, poor Eisenmann Race.....

Watching the Vorsteiner Diffuser be un-boxed and meticulously installed helped divert attention as quickly as possible. That diffuser is

Nice to see that the full system was opted for. Maybe next week if its sunny I can bum a ride to see what the full system sounds like on a vert with the top down.

This car left the shop on Sat afternoon with the Eisenmann Race and had a full Akra from alekshop by sunday evening, great work Alek.

That is just hideous work, I don't think I have seen a worse job on any car, let alone a brand new $70K one!

I hope the owner got reimbursed for the shitty install on the Eisenmann Race!

I clicked the thread thinking it was a sarcastic title. Did not expect to see this! Alekshop to the rescue.

Ask mods to edit.

Also, why protect the name of the shop?

WOW! Seriously. Its too bad people have to be shady like that. Maybe the owner can post up what shop it was or chime in so others don't get ripped off as well.

I have a feeling we will see it back on the FS threads.
