    That's not Rob's fault. It's Terry's fault. The software will automatically assign a title based on post count and that is up to the administrators and not the users. If you're going to throw stones at least try to do it accurately.

    It doesn't appear to me that Rob ever answers the tough questions or actually addresses issues in which he may be in the wrong. Honestly I don't think he ever considers himself to be in the wrong. He's got a bit of a God/Messiah complex going. Dude even uses "deity" in his N54tech user title, even though he spells it wrong. Maybe he'll correct it or be less douchey and remove it. I've asked him and posted several times questioning his complete 180° turn on the use of silicone as he bashed Tony's use of it, only to then come out with all silicone tubing for his EVO hot-side charge and inlet piping as well as stock frame inlets. He posted an in depth reply to me, but he never actually answered my question. Unfortunately the posts he made when Tony made his announcement are long gone, but he's got politician-skills in that respect. It isn't surprising; I think most people don't want to admit to hypocritical behavior. Truthfully, in normal circumstances, asking him to pay labor is too much. However, the issue that comes into question with all the smoking is whether he knowingly sold defective products. Unfortunately I'm not sure that's the kind of thing you can prove. The next issue that comes into question is the "recall". First, did he actually issue a recall? If so, did he notify everyone sold a defective product that it was recalled? If so, how do you handle an aftermarket recall? In this situation, I would think some additional compensation would be needed for products requiring an involved install that costs some users quite a bit to get done. All in all, I don't think anything will come of this thread. Unless people stop blindly supporting the guy. I vote with my wallet, which is why I haven't purchased any RB products. That isn't to say I wouldn't change my mind if he actually showed some integrity, but I very much doubt that will ever happen.

    My car has never smoked before , once the rbs reached 3k miles boom cloud of smoke passing me on decel very embarrassing. If rob does not care what's going on with this mass problem then honestly I definitely went the wrong route with this purchase that wasn't cheap . A business that has been on the same platform and continues to make mistakes like this should be overlooked and ignored because this is not a job some people can tackle or afford . Let's keep this lost going . Post ur mileage and options with them .

    Pricing is on the second page and I think the measurements are either on the second or third page.

    To me, there was no part of Rob's answer that actually addressed the issue. If you go back 4 years ago on the other message board, you will find RB turbo owners that had issues with smoking RB's. The issue is that this has never been addressed and it appears to have gotten worse over the past year. You rarely hear of smoking VTT turbos so this leads me to believe that the RB smoking problem has nothing to do with the car and everything to do with the manufacturing. I don't own turbos from either company but I would not buy RB turbos at this point. I personally saw a 335i owner in my area that was at a local Test and Tune event in 2012 and he had smoking RB issues back then.

    I think the new test for hybrid twins is going to be longevity, we have a lot of options now. Prices will fall as competition increases and we will find out which ones run without issue for 40-50k miles. Exciting times

    600 units in circulation. Lets see what this list gets up to numbers wise since we can safely assume there is no chance everyone who had an issue will post. At that point we will see if this a high failure rate piece of hardware or if it is within an acceptable range compared to the rest of the industry. You saying that people have no legal recourse doesn't make it so, all that has to be established is a pattern of failing parts that are common and that the number of incidents are outside of the range of the rest of the industry. Continuing to sell turbos of which you know between 15-20% (very rough estimate) of them will end up needing to be pulled out, sent to you, sent back and reinstalled is a shitty customer service plan. The cost of having a professional shop initially install, uninstall to be sent in and reinstall when they are refurbished is a very significant expense. Not to mention the fact that you are without your car for however long it takes to get the bad turbos out, shipped to RB, worked on and sent back and finally reinstalled. I am not suggesting that you are out of line for not refunding labor costs but when you are continuing to put more units out with the same issue you can't really fault your customers for expecting that you had the problems solved and that you owe it to them to make it right.

    My bad, wasn't aware of the issues with Gintani. Are you keeping the M3? @Rob@RBTurbo Now that the group buy is closed, will you continue to stock/sell these? I noticed you haven't added them to your site yet (unless I'm just blind).

    No, I'm not. I thought about it but I think I've spent more than enough with Gintani with little to show for it. Another $40k+ just isn't worth it when I can buy a brand new car with that money. I'm not exactly thrilled with their work thus far. I'd like to move on ASAP.

    I'm sure it is understood. I just thought about mitigating any argument from passionate individuals that might read the text as your own. Sometimes I get caught up in silly things. I hate to be the O/T guy, apologies to Rob in advance, but are you looking into the Gintani S65 turbo setup? Feel free to PM. Was just hoping if you were, you might post a thread about it.

    Thats good stuff too. Chaucer (the big dog) has silk for a coat. He sheds bad during season changes obviously but not to bad other wise. I bet his poop is smaller too with that food. Most "name brands" including blue buffalo uses a lot of fillers that dont get digested and pass through. you may want to look into flint river ranch, I pay $41.xx a month for 20lbs and they ship it to me once a month i never have to actually order it every time. I dont know how that compares to the above price wise but i didnt think $4x.xx a month for a 70lbs dog was bad.

    I feed my dog this: It keeps his coat very nice and he sheds less. Also it's not as dry as it was with other food. He loves it. His poop is also more 'solid' than with other foods. Not cheap but definitely high quality and I mean what the hell, why not give the best?

    The Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 upgrade sure looks like the real deal. The turbo upgrade is not 'officially' out yet but expect it next month. For now what we have seen is numbers in the 6XX wheel range and here is a preview of the real world capability. BimmerBoost member @pr3ci5n335i in the video below runs his E90 automatic 335i against a 2014 Nissan GTR on E85 with full bolt ons. The 335i is at roughly 25 psi of boost and also has full bolt ons in addition to the Pure Turbos Stage 2 N54 turbo upgrade. He also has the TFT inlets and his fuel in the video is an E50 blend with meth injection. The 335i takes the hit here but steadily pulls the GTR until it shuts down. Definitely an impressive result considering what bolt on GTR's on E85 are capable of. 2010 E90 M 335i: Alpina AT, FBO (VRSF 5" Stepped FMIC, Catless with BMW PE, TFT upper and lower chargepipes, HKS BOV, BMS 2 gallon Meth kit, Stage 1 Walbro 255 inline LPFP, BMS low temperature thermostat bypass), JB4 map 3 80add, BMS E85 Flash using MHD, Pure S2 turbos, APEX Arc-8, no rear seats
