    • ESS is attempting to back out of the dyno event they themselves requested?


      Roman at ESS is now attempting to back out of the tuner dyno day shootout. I would like to remind everyone, ESS requested this dyno comparison themselves and asked BimmerBoost to schedule it. Now that the date is nearing, ESS is going back on their word at the last minute

      I received this e-mail from Roman:

      This was my response:

      We have over a half dozen companies waiting on ESS. BMS has agreed and has been patiently waiting. MHP agreed although the date change now inconvenience them. Gintani agreed and said they would accept the date change for ESS. OE Tuning agreed and said they accept the date change to wait for ESS. Powerchip said they do not mind the date change and look forward to it. Vishnu has agreed in proxy and we also have GIAC representation. G-power is ready with their supercharger representation.

      BimmerBoost has worked tirelessly to make this event happen at substantial cost as any of these companies can attest. We have been on the phones and e-mailing back and forth for what is almost 4 months now.

      ESS requested this event, led everyone on, and now is backing down from their own challenge. BimmerBoost has considerable cost tied to the event and will not simply let it go. DC Performance has a large amount of revenue dependent on the event. Literally dozens of people, companies will be hurt financially and inconvenienced by ESS not honoring its own request.

      We would like the BMW community to encourage ESS to participate as they had agreed, please contact Roman and make it known you would like to see the event take place as planned:

        I was just about to leave, I'm going to be back in a little bit.

        When is the drift event? I'll work with you on the date.

        they straight up said they wouldnt attend due to your affiliation - what makes you think they are going to budge on a alternate date. Seems like they are playing with you.

        Hello good sir.
        What are the possible dates for this dyno shout out?
        Maybe bring the Single Turbo and reveal it at this event officially.
        Let me know, brother.

        They won't, but I want to show everyone I did everything I could to accommodate them. So the only thing that stopped them from doing what they said they would is their own lack of integrity.

        I just don't understand how they can blatantly lie to people like that, it just looks so bad.

        Well Gintani gave me a sort of roundabout figure of October for their open house. We could do a sort of tuning/dyno extravaganza with BimmerBoost covering the event for everyone.

        When would your car be available?

        If we are talking October, my car certainly be ready. It will be ready this month, actually.

        Keep the scheculed date or this whole thing will start looking like a joke. I can't speak for the other forum members but I work 60 hours per week and have already tweaked my work schedule (twice) so I could be at the event with my GIAC tuned car. If you change the date a third time due to ESS it starts to look like you're part of the ESS crew. It is not appropriate to screw many loyal forum members to suck up to one vendor. I may be old school but I am punctual, honest, and keep my committments. ESS can go...F#*@.....

        I am not part of the ESS crew, that part is obvious.

        Look, just give me a chance to get some guys with ESS cars to attend. If I can do that, who cares if they come or not? The event is obviously being rescheduled as it needs to be, without the full spectrum of cars it is not the event I promised so what about that aspect?

        I'm not screwing anyone by doing this and paying for it. We are talking about an event costing thousands of dollars here, I want to get the most for my money.

        I didn't realize that you are paying for the event. Please consider charging each attendee a nominal fee such as $50 - $75 to help defray your cost. Let me know how much I owe.
        Thanks,

        I will definitely be doing that Click here to enlarge

        Look, this will all work out for the best and the enthusiasts will get what they wanted and everyone will go home happy. My goal was to provide everyone the best event possible and I thought I had that. ESS backing out at the last minute just makes things a little more difficult, that is all. It will be fun, we'll get magazine coverage, and even more people will come out. I keep my word and there will be no more date changes once it is set as we won't be trying to accommodate anyone.

        I wish GIAC would attend or at least RSVP. I have and love the GIAC tune but their customer service is not great.

        Jesus Christ...October now? Well, I suppose that provides more time all around.

        Maybe some other vendors will remove their heads from their asses. Click here to enlarge
