    It's not really your fault, we were not here for a couple years and a lot of things that were said that were things "we said" were in fact not what we had said. Or perhaps they were in some context, but usually manipulated in some fairly extreme fashion to gain favor with the masses. BTW I have never conveniently deleted or edited any posts, at some later date, to save face… what you see is today is what it was from the beginning. They just are not there in the format you thought they were because you took things others have quoted us as saying at face value. If you would like to chat, feel free to give a call tomorrow. Have no problems addressing with you anything you feel you need addressed, and could care less if you open your wallet our way or not. I too believe that a product will speak for itself, whether bad or good and am ok with it. Thanks, Rob

    Agreed. I am one of the "recall-ies" who got the email a few weeks after i got them installed. I've seen aftermarket shops go way out of their way and lose money to fix problems that incurred because of their neglect or other circumstances. No one is complaining about RB's blew up my motor because i made 600hp and i pushed them too hard. People are complaining because they paid for and received turbos that were supposed to be new in perfect working condition, instead a handful of us got turbos that had manufacturers defects. While many others got smoking very quickly after install, and even AFTER sending them back for rebuilds are still having problems. Rob has been called out multiple times and will not answer his upset customers. Even Tony called him out to explain why exactly billet wheels are causing smoking issues.

    This +10000 I'm not down to pull off a ST every 2 years. Although OEM turbos at the ragged edge with inlets at 475/530 whp/wtq is a pretty solid option (especially while under warranty) - If only our cars weren't such fat pigs.

    Well I stand corrected. Truthfully I've mentioned it before and said I didn't know if it was assigned or chosen, but as I havent seen anyone else with the same title, I didn't clarify this time, so I still stand corrected. My opinion on his question answering and perceived integrity, or lack thereof, stands. On more than one occasion, he has reinforced my opinion of him. Most recently, he came off as we should be so happy he's single handedly responsible for bringing inlet prices down, which I agreed that competition is always better for consumers, but recently he always seems to come off as arrogant and that he's the greatest thing since sliced bread, but he's not the only person like this. Who knows, I've never met the guy, I can only judge what I read and I'm just one dude. Truthfully if he addressed a couple issues/specifically answered some questions, my opinion would change quite drastically.

    That's not Rob's fault. It's Terry's fault. The software will automatically assign a title based on post count and that is up to the administrators and not the users. If you're going to throw stones at least try to do it accurately.

    It doesn't appear to me that Rob ever answers the tough questions or actually addresses issues in which he may be in the wrong. Honestly I don't think he ever considers himself to be in the wrong. He's got a bit of a God/Messiah complex going. Dude even uses "deity" in his N54tech user title, even though he spells it wrong. Maybe he'll correct it or be less douchey and remove it. I've asked him and posted several times questioning his complete 180° turn on the use of silicone as he bashed Tony's use of it, only to then come out with all silicone tubing for his EVO hot-side charge and inlet piping as well as stock frame inlets. He posted an in depth reply to me, but he never actually answered my question. Unfortunately the posts he made when Tony made his announcement are long gone, but he's got politician-skills in that respect. It isn't surprising; I think most people don't want to admit to hypocritical behavior. Truthfully, in normal circumstances, asking him to pay labor is too much. However, the issue that comes into question with all the smoking is whether he knowingly sold defective products. Unfortunately I'm not sure that's the kind of thing you can prove. The next issue that comes into question is the "recall". First, did he actually issue a recall? If so, did he notify everyone sold a defective product that it was recalled? If so, how do you handle an aftermarket recall? In this situation, I would think some additional compensation would be needed for products requiring an involved install that costs some users quite a bit to get done. All in all, I don't think anything will come of this thread. Unless people stop blindly supporting the guy. I vote with my wallet, which is why I haven't purchased any RB products. That isn't to say I wouldn't change my mind if he actually showed some integrity, but I very much doubt that will ever happen.

    My car has never smoked before , once the rbs reached 3k miles boom cloud of smoke passing me on decel very embarrassing. If rob does not care what's going on with this mass problem then honestly I definitely went the wrong route with this purchase that wasn't cheap . A business that has been on the same platform and continues to make mistakes like this should be overlooked and ignored because this is not a job some people can tackle or afford . Let's keep this lost going . Post ur mileage and options with them .

    Pricing is on the second page and I think the measurements are either on the second or third page.

    That's how I feel. They gave up on their core enthusiasts a long time ago. BMW doesn't give a crap these days. They want to make money. They don't care about anything else. They don't care about having driver's cars. MONEY MONEY MONEY

    To me, there was no part of Rob's answer that actually addressed the issue. If you go back 4 years ago on the other message board, you will find RB turbo owners that had issues with smoking RB's. The issue is that this has never been addressed and it appears to have gotten worse over the past year. You rarely hear of smoking VTT turbos so this leads me to believe that the RB smoking problem has nothing to do with the car and everything to do with the manufacturing. I don't own turbos from either company but I would not buy RB turbos at this point. I personally saw a 335i owner in my area that was at a local Test and Tune event in 2012 and he had smoking RB issues back then.

    I think the new test for hybrid twins is going to be longevity, we have a lot of options now. Prices will fall as competition increases and we will find out which ones run without issue for 40-50k miles. Exciting times

    600 units in circulation. Lets see what this list gets up to numbers wise since we can safely assume there is no chance everyone who had an issue will post. At that point we will see if this a high failure rate piece of hardware or if it is within an acceptable range compared to the rest of the industry. You saying that people have no legal recourse doesn't make it so, all that has to be established is a pattern of failing parts that are common and that the number of incidents are outside of the range of the rest of the industry. Continuing to sell turbos of which you know between 15-20% (very rough estimate) of them will end up needing to be pulled out, sent to you, sent back and reinstalled is a shitty customer service plan. The cost of having a professional shop initially install, uninstall to be sent in and reinstall when they are refurbished is a very significant expense. Not to mention the fact that you are without your car for however long it takes to get the bad turbos out, shipped to RB, worked on and sent back and finally reinstalled. I am not suggesting that you are out of line for not refunding labor costs but when you are continuing to put more units out with the same issue you can't really fault your customers for expecting that you had the problems solved and that you owe it to them to make it right.

    My bad, wasn't aware of the issues with Gintani. Are you keeping the M3? @Rob@RBTurbo Now that the group buy is closed, will you continue to stock/sell these? I noticed you haven't added them to your site yet (unless I'm just blind).
