I am not sure why everyone is jumping on this guy's back. He's entitled to his opinion, and whatever he has a problem with should not be judged by the lens of his activity on other forums. He was quick to over react, but we are not the same, and can't expect everyone to act as we would have.
I for one think that a vendor should supply the product in the exact same shape it's advertised as, if not it's misrepresentation.
It doesn't matter that the holes or finish do or do not not make sense from installation perspective.
Also, vendors' long standing history and support should not mean immunity from criticism.

If you guys all only knew.

There was once a thread on E46Fanatics to find out what happened to KPeng, after he disappeared from that forum due to similar trolling antics.

Kpeng, this isn't E46 OT, you do clearly have a point about the lip being sub-par, but I think it's not as easy for fellas over here to take your blatant reality and harsh comments lightly.

Won't be the first time a thread was closed that he started.

What took you so long to get the best M5 ever made? The E30 and E46 dead now?

It's not a misrepresentation. These parts require preparation for installation. If you don't know that, then you don't know much about modifying cars.

If a part doesn't meet your expectations, you can have an opinion of that. You can even come here and voice that opinion. You could ask for input: is this normal, is this what others have experienced, should I be worried, etc. Before or after that, you should ask for satisfactory resolution.

Instead, this charlatan comes to this forum disparaging the product and seller. This experienced BMW modder doesn't give the seller a chance to provide satisfactory resolution. They continue to disparage the product and seller, doing so after resolution was offered and accepted.

A little bit of sleuthing by others found a person with the same screen name has expressed similar opinions of various products on other forums. Now I don't know what was posted, what the rules are of those various forums or that there might be a conspiracy against the OP even if it's the same person, but it is a little odd.

Then the OP says:

The seller is not a vendor and the forum doesn't get money from them. They don't sell subpar products. They sold a product that didn't meet a buyer's expectations. It happens and it's unfortunate. The seller offered satisfactory resolution and it was accepted by the buyer. The buyer is displeased by the timetable the resolution is working on. That is unfortunate as well.

Factual representation of events and occurrences with any product is welcome and desirable. Discussion about the products and services received, even opinions, are also welcome and desirable. There is a difference between opinion and a vendetta. A vendetta is exactly what this is. It does a disservice to the seller and forum members.

I would only agree if this was explicitly stipulated in the advertisement. This crucial detail needs to be included for the mere reason that people that "don't know much about modifying cars" as you put it, maybe looking into buying such product.

You cannot show a finished product for sale without explanation this is not what you are buying, and than expect buyers to be happy when they receive something they didn't expect.

Those are both long sold, neither are dead. I have an E39 M5 and a F30 335 now.

Welcome to the club. It's like somewhat in between E46Fanatics and ZHPMafia over here, ZHPMafia being largely filled with conceited holier than thou assturds who think their ZHP was the best E46 ever made including over the M3 and M3 CSL. Most often it's comprised of the people who's skin is not thick enough for E46F. You're probably a member over there too huh, HA.

I do find it interesting how defensive this board is of this product/seller...no where on the slimmbones webpage states that this product requires preparation before installation...

I did buy the product because the seller does make clean looking modifications. I did think the price was a bit out of wack for just a floppy, heavy, piece of polyurethane, especially with the minor imperfections that it came with. I do like the look and settled with the imperfections because I assumed it would get dinged up by small rocks etc.

The thing is we know Slim, well those of us that have been around for a while and we like him. We don't know this guy slapping our friend around, but now we likely don't like him.
Slim is not some huge company, he is very small and produces things by hand. Not that this is an excuse but has had some health issues. He never started building things for us to make a huge profit, he did it more to service us and give us cool things. Ever since his health issues the production is not the same, but so be it. If you did your research you would know.



Take it or leave it, you don't like what he sent you send it back, but don't come here and complain about it. All you had to do was read some posts here to understand what might be going on.


For the support he has given this community, he is deserved of some understanding and support.

Just because he's your friend, doesn't mean his product is good. The truth hurts sometimes. Sorry broskie.

There are some sensitive people here who cannot accept facts. Cheers, fellow E46fanatics alum. You are a gentleman and a scholar.
