You didn't take deposits from them? And a CC number in case they don't return it?

No. I didn't. lol. I didn't have any reason not to trust them. Two of the places are Euro shops. I'm having the urge to just write a negative review on Google. Maybe then I'll get their attention. Let's see. Hopefully they show up.

Yeesh, raw deal on the unreturned actuators Abdul...

In any event I replaced my gears at around 70k before I got any warning lights and they've been going strong since, but should the dreaded specter of electronics failure rear its head I will be sure to take advantage of your services!

Thanks Jason and Abdul

Nothing but first class service and great communication between Abdul. The Actuators were exactly as promised and come with a life-time warranty. Awesome service and fast shipping. Glad to see this service is available to the brave soles who decided to hang on to their cars past the BMW warranty period. I will be recommending M power motorsports to anybody in need of actuators.

I ordered and received my actuators within a few days as promised. Install went very well and all error codes immediately went away....hopefully for good. Thank you MPowerMotorsports for offering these upgraded actuators at a good price!

Iíve had my actuators in for over a month now without any issue. Itís such a relief to have the lifetime warranty as well so I know Iíll never have to deal with them again. Abdul was a pleasure to work with and he helped me a lot. He got me the actuators in time for me to have them installed before I moved and he waived one of my core charges so I could order them earlier. Iím so happy I had this done with MPowerMotorsports and I wouldnít ever do it again with anyone else! Highly recommend for anyone with actuator issues!!

Reporting after close to 10 months of the actuators installed and they are working perfectly. i drove the car a lot this summer and have now put about 10-11k km on them and not one single time was there a hiccup or did i notice the slight sluggishness of old and tired units (as was the case before replacement etc).

it also was a hot summer and i pushed her regularly on long trips, so rest assured the actuators got worked plenty. this reminds me, after much research on the topic a german article from a track rat who runs on the ring regularly said it is common knowledge among ze german bimmer folk to lubricate the ITB linkages and bearings once a year or so, as that appears to be one of the leading causes of the units prematurely failing in the first place (other than the mediocre oem built quality). the lubricants evaporate in the heat of being housed deep within the v and covered up, and dust also is a cause. so far i have done my actuators twice and every time the linkages were squeaky dry though i had lubricated them with "permanent" lubricants prior.

so anyone who is going through this headache bare in mind this preventative maintenance.
