Patience is a dying virtue.

Good work Slon!
Sure some people are impatient. But, I think what most people were concerned about was the lack of communication.

Slon could have just mentioned there was a delay or he was going on vacation or whatever the reason is. He just ghosted members and some had thousands of dollars hanging out there for Brembo kits.

FYI I have Slon's DCT pan and it is a very nice part. Luckily I got mine in a timely manner.

Yeah, he likely could have done a better job at communication. But at the end of the day, Slon is a Russian boutique machine shop that manufactures some really cool aftermarket BMW parts. One would assume that the BMW parts are a side business of an existing machine shop as I doubt he sells enough BBK and DCT pans to pay the mortgage.

We should all just be happy that people like him exist and have a little patience and understanding.

Cheers,

I will always support people that do right and do good work. What people said on the forums is bs!
So you just ordered and he's shipping it within a week? That's amazing compared to ordering them and then not hearing anything for several months after repeatedly trying to get in touch. When you add to the fact that several other people were experiencing the same thing, patience wasn't an issue and it wasn't blown out of proportion.

At least it looks like communication is somewhat improved so that's great.
