    BimmerPost/E90post willingly engaging in KW Defect Cover Up

    I just happened to be browsing coil-over options when I noticed yet another user mentioning issues with his KW coil-overs:

    Minutes later, the thread was deleted and the user was banned for posting his experience:

    Now, there are several issues with the KW V1's and KW coil-over's in general, reports of the squeaking/rattle and issues with the perches:

    It is the responsibility of any forum to allow users to post their experience to inform other users before making a purchase. Bimmerpost is protecting vendors who have an inventory of these coil-overs at the expense of the users, literally. It is shady, dirty, deliberate, and just plain wrong. If any vendor asks for a board to delete messages about a defective product to move inventory, they should be exposed for it, not protected.

    This user asked for help, said KW and the vendor were not helpful in resolving his issues, and was banned for it in order to protect profits. BimmerBoost will not stand for this and will not allow them to get away with it.

    You know, there are legal grounds here for users who have purchased defective KW Coilovers to go after Bimmerpost...

    Absolutely, he didn't even get a chance to get help or to let other people know.

    If they are gone and the posts are deleted how can you have proof of something that no longer exists? This was just lucky to have happened right the minute I happened to be looking, how many others are deleted without anyone seeing it?

    Make a thread asking where the post went and see what happens.

    It does not get any more blatant than that. I can't believe the chances that I happened to be browsing right that very moment. Just makes you wonder how often this goes on when no one catches it.

    i don't get why people think post count really matters if someone is legitimate or not... on topic, thats just really shady to do something like that. i have not heard of this defect so this is new to me. is this defect only for one batch of kw coilovers or all of them?

    Post count doesn't equal intelligence or who is right or wrong, it was just something to nitpick.

    The V1's have had some issues as have KW coil-overs in general. Just search on google for "KW coil-over problems"

    this is crazy, makes one not want to post over there. on a side note, i have kw v2 and have been running them on and off track for 15k miles. no issues thus far, but i can only hope i dont have the issues some of these users have.

    Just for those who don't believe they engage in this behavior, a thread was created asking why this topic was deleted, it is now deleted as well:

    I didnt design the defective units, so the blame will not be placed on me. That is for the record
