    For example, try to sell something on E46Fanatics.com in the part out section. I clearly state..."Only selling the parts listed"...I get requests for my windshield (not listed), door seals and other vital parts to the car which are clearly not listed. Then 99% of the time I'll list my paypal address in the FS: thread...what do I get??? What's your PP?

    So you take that and apply it to a panicky and pissed off owner or a bystander in an FI blow up and you'll quickly see how it adds up to mass confusion and base (sometimes -less) tuner bashing.
    That would be like blaming BMW for a weak block, after doing modifications to it.

    I agree that common sense is always lacking, but you can't blame a hardware company (which ESS turned into) for a tune related issue.

    Spotty bad customer service? I think that is the norm with a couple of exceptions.
    as i said, show me another platform that does what the bmw tuners do.. and ive dealt with all these companies.. only one behaves the way ive seen stated above.

    Maybe I have been too spoiled by people I've encountered in this forum. But you are right, other forums tend to have pretty stupid people, which I didn't account for.

    Touche.

    I agree with you, but I still think they have something to lose if the car goes boom with their hardware.
