Secondly, this thread could be easily kept alive by moderators, no matter what HPS asks you to sign.
In the end, many of us, including myself, wish you a resolution that keeps you and your C55 in great health and in great power.
And in case you still DO NOT GET IT, HPS aint it.
To be honest. I've been giving them a lot of chances to get it right but this last round thorougly pissed me off! They cooked up some crock of Sh*^t about how I was their best customer and were going to give me even more power with some additional "tricks up his sleeve" if I left the car with them for ANOTHER week. Hell they even got me excited about the new Magnuson Blower they were putting in my car in June that will pump out over 450whp without any other mods.
When I got the car back they just told me it was running fine and needed NOTHING when in reality I suspect that they were USING my car to test something (FMU?) to replace the costly ECU programming that Jessie is doing and wanted to see if it would work on a newer model AMG. He said the only remaining improvement opportunity was the "transmission slippage" but that HPS is out of money and he's not going to wrap $1,000 bills around each kit they sell. They returned my car even dirtier than when I left it with them. Not even the courtesy of washing it after borrowing it for free and driving it back and forth from LA to Escondido (200+ miles each trip) and Dyno'ing the Hell out my engine for 8 days.
HPS tells me that I'm their partner and friend yet they continually try to take advantage of me. Now they're trying to censor me and when that didn't work they try to bribe me. Well I can't be bought and will stand by my principles. I owe it to the Benz enthusiast public to tell it like it is.
They tell me that the fake dyno sent to me was an innocent mistake. Well how can both Bill and Adam talk about the numbers as being the one of the best they ever had? They can't claim ignorance when they openingly boasted about how good my numbers were. Only Jim did not claim that the 414whp was real and said he did not remember ever seeing that number when dynoing my car at his shop shortly after the blower install back in November.
If they are'nt straight up with me and use bully techniques then this is what they get! If they threaten to void my warranty if my car breaks. So what? I won't be filing a warranty claim but instead a legal claim!!!!
