    • Fabspeed facing class action lawsuit due to poor product quality and customer service?

      BoostAddict has covered a lot of Fabspeed products over the years. What is marketed is billed as top quality. The product presentation is done well and they provide good videos along with dyno data to support their claims. We like that.


      What we do not like is what you are going to see below. Why is nobody talking about it? Why is a lawsuit due to poor product quality and poor customer service not being discussed on any of the major forums?

      Probably because Fabspeed is a vendor on those forums and you will see those who raised questions were banned.

      Here is an example:

Fabspeed profit margins are shrinking, there are less pieces of the pie now a days compounded by the Asian markets wanting more money for goods so they can live the better "western" way of life and this is why Joe (the owner of the company) is desperate making videos trashing other companies.

      You don't believe me?? Ok please check out this links.

      "You don't know what you are getting Ladies & gentlemen, the pictures don't lie" right Joe? ;-)

      Anybody who can weld and fabricate can do what they are doing, the only thing that has really helped them get to where they are is marketing, Joe pumps large sums of cash into marketing so he can reel in the unsuspecting. For now they can afford the profit margins shrinking because they are so high, but as more of the pie gets taken the margins will thus come down and the people like Joe will go away.

      They will always have their minions though, the customers they kiss butt to and offer video time to on their company marketing videos. Everybody have a price right???

      Joe fired his only engineer who actually gave a damn about the products he was trying to make better for them...The guy was named (Chris), he was trying to standardize or create a protocol on how dyno testing was to take place at you know where (Asia). Joe was always after him because he said Chris was "wasting time", on the contrary Chris was testing already existing products but was finding out that instead of gaining horsepower that some of the products are actually costing horsepower...I guess Joe got tired of being shown that either his products were not making as much as he say or were actually LOSING HP...then it came to a head and he fired Chris because Chris would not back down and basically told Joe he is lying to the public.
      Banned for raising questions about cheap Chinese Fabspeed sources.

      So what is going on? Well, take a look at some of this:















      Quite a bit to chew on there, isn't there? It certainly doesn't look good.

      It also doesn't look good that the source (www.fabspeedsucks.com) says a class action lawsuit is taking place.

      BoostAddict reached out for comment to see how far along this lawsuit is.

      What is the truth here? Well, we are going to try to find out.

        Hah, I told you. They've done quite the job keeping this under the rug, glad to see something may finally come of it though.

        Well, basically it's not on any forum they sponsor. I think that explains it.

        I was only recently made aware.

        Before everyone jumps to conclusions Fabspeed contacted me for their side. I will post it of course and you can all come to your own conclusions.

        Still. In my opinion, non of the fabspeed exhausts that I've put on the lp570s have been worth the cost but for some reason it gets Lamborghini guys all riled up.

        I should have made a thread about Manhart when they screwed me as well. Send me downpipes with completely mis angled/rotated flanges and were too short as well. Got also a oil cooler kit from them which they had no idea where it should be installed, "just attach it to something" they said. Its core was so big i had to make a bracket and install it above the fmic.

        I spent two days trying to fit fabspeed's valvetronic exhaust on my buddies 991.1. It never fit correctly, nothing lined up. Sent it back and they ended up giving a full refund. He is still running their bypass pipe, which is a good value and fitment is just fine.

        Same reason im not posting about current hassles of a supercharger kit from a vendor that you are not much of a fan.
        This is how it usually goes: I fix the $#@! ups myself. Wait for the vendor to at least send an apology. Life gets in the way and i forget about it. I break up with my GF. Upset about everything i recall said problems about the $#@! ups. Send the vendor angry notes about their $#@!ty service. They tell me it has been a long time and i should let it go.

        Perhaps you should be? I have been getting a few e-mails about customer service issues with that certain vendor...

        You raised some really good points.

        However, are all the companies still using that same source?

        Still, good detective work there.

        I can't comment on the past, but Ive been very happy with Fabspeed. My part was perfect, and the customer service even better. i speak with my sales guy John all the time, and even met him and the rest of the Fabspeed team at the Rolex 24 race. I won't have any problem buying more parts from them.

        We had one: http://www.boostaddict.com/content.p...ness-with-them

        Vivid is clearly a much more egregious and dirtier offender than Fabspeed could ever hope to be.

        Excellent I'll read that now. I hope I can add my experience with those dirtbags.
