OE TUNING - HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!
I just wanted to let everyone know about my horrible experience with OE Tuning and their service or lack there of!!!
After doing some research a couple of years ago, I decided to go with a stage 2 tune from OE Tuning. The tune was ok, great exhaust notes but the power wasn’t the best. Anyways, I noticed last month that they advertised a sale on a MB forum, plus they were offering updates for existing customers. I confirmed that they had an update to which they did, and they were also offering more “burble” for and up charge. I decided to go with both any away my ecu went. The turn around time was quick and I had my ecu back in my car in a couple of days!!!
Here’s where is all starts!!! When I got my ecu back, I took my car out for a cruise and noticed that I lost ALL of the exhaust notes and there was no increase in power at all. A stock C450/43 had more exhaust sounds than my car!!! I immediately called Tyler and told him what was going on, he said to drive it for the weekend and if nothing changed to send the ecu back and they would reimburse me the shipping charges. Drove the car all weekend and nothing changed!! I then proceeded to get a shipping quote to send the unit back overnight with insurance. Just so they had a heads up, I sent an email back to them with the amount and I got an email back right away saying that the shipping charges were too expensive and that they could get a better price. That worked for me as they would take care of everything and I wouldn’t be out of pocket.
Monday rolls around, FedEx picks up the package and it was delivered the next day. I called to see how the process went and they said they programmed it too aggressive and that’s why I lost all the exhaust notes. Tyler said that they completed it and it would be sent out that day. I was provided a tracking number so I tracked the package as I always do. This was sent out on July 10th and to this day I still don’t have my ecu!!!
LET ME BE CLEAR, OE Tuning did NOT lose my ecu, FedEx lost it but OE Tuning washed their hands of it!!!! I found out that they didn’t use my original box, they changed it to a med size Fedex box to save money!! I also found out that to save $25 they didn’t insure my package, so now i’m out $2000 for a new ecu and $2000 for a reputable company like Eurocharged to tune my new ecu!! This could of all been avoided if they paid the $25 insurance like I quoted them when they asked me to pay the shipping back. I’ve sent several emails trying to work something out and all they say is that they didn’t lose it and they did their part..........they also followed that up with a copy of their shipping policy.
They have not answered any of my emails or phone calls after this!!! These guys are a real class act!!
