    I feel the same way. The way he acts does not make me think he is the brightest bulb when it comes to business. Even if you disagree or whatnot, in business keep it to yourself, smile, sell your product, cash your check, and think what you want at the end of the day.

    I retract my earlier statement supporting their kit. **** A/R Design! Sorry but when you start insulting the very same people who might end purchasing your products you can go **** yourself! What a douchebag!

    Yep.

    Guy doesn't make the smart decisions for business. If he thinks we are all douches or whatever it is in his best interest to keep it to himself and sell his product. I just don't understand it, you don't need a masters in business to figure that out.

    Yeah he's not the sharpest tool in the shed that's for sure. He just thinks he's too cool for school. I hate people like that business or otherwise. I'm glad I didn't purchase their downpipes.

    I am not sure why all the hatred towards Andrew/ar design. I have spent a lot of time talking to him on the phone and consider him a friend and you guys seriously misunderstand him. He is very pationate about what he makes and goes out of his way to make his customers happy. He is definitely an asset to the community and some of his products are pushing the N54 platform forward.

    Laloosh, there is nothing wrong with being an $#@!, right?

    I'm just playin Click here to enlarge

    Really though, I can't agree with your statement 100%, because he has nothing but support for the Rob Beck setup. I do recall ASR saying some bad things about RB's engineering, but that is getting OT.

    Oh, guess his posts insulting people here are just us misunderstanding him. I'm sure his intention was to make us all happy and be an asset when he crafted them. Our mistake, sorry.

    Calling the members of this forum "wannabes", taking shots at other companies, and have a poor attitude in general is not what I would call being an asset to the community its just being an ***. You don't insult potential customers PERIOD. It's just common business sense something he clearly lacks...

    Yeah I was originally looking into purchasing a set of downpipes from another vendor and around that time I met Alex and Arno and they went out of their way to help me. They're great guys and go above and beyond for their customers. I'm really happy with my choice. I can't wait for everyone to see the finished product Click here to enlarge

    LOL, its funny how people don't realize what an $#@! shiv is... Going back to when the JB3 was first available for pre-order, I was trying to decide between that and the procede. Terry was very helpful with all my questions and acted in a professional manner. Shiv on the other hand attacked me on the forums when I asked if the boost spike problems with rev 2 had been fixed, so I told him to go F*** himself and went with terry. Me and shiv(and shivs clueless followers) haven't gotten along since, and it has cost them several sales with people I hang out with that have n54's. I think he thinks word of mouth is not important, but he is sadly mistaken.

    Shiv's demeanor can often be interpreted as him being an $#@! but he isn't. People think the same of me often too even though that is not my intention.

    Yes, it seems to have cost him a few sales as he probably got defensive over your questions. Terry and Shiv just have very different styles but they both ultimately mean well.

    The challenge with forums is that they personalize things which won't allow product quality and performance to speak for themselves. The bottom line is that AR Designs arguabley makes the best downpipes on the market for the N54. They are proven performers and likely will continue to advance the N54 platform with their product line. Its unfortunate that things went sideways here with a few posts.

    The Andrew story reminds me of a childhood friend who had an ego the size of Texas and the natural ability to blow one's mind. He could have been one of the best surfers in the world but his bad attitude made him lose sponsors and get disqualified in contests. He had beaten Andy Irons (3-time World Champ) multiple times, but his ego created so many obstacles that he now lives with his parents at 35 and still says he is a pro surfer due to a few sponsors for free clothes, sunglasses and boards.

    Moral of story, Andrew's ego problem might lead to his demise if he doesn't shape up and change his act.

    I truly hope HPF crushes AR with their sales because they display the respectful business practices that are a model for others and deserve all the market share they have coming to them.

    I pity anyone who tries to compete with HPF. They have the best documentation, support, service, and fan base out there. Tough to go against that... especially when you are basically nobody in comparison.

    It is true AR Design has nice downpipes that are very popular.

    Interesting tidbit on your pro-surfer friend. What a shame to see all that potential and talent go to waste. Nothing is worse than knowing you have the ability but not using it.

    I hope everything goes well for AR with this turbo upgrade. This would definitely be another milestone for the N54 community.

    AR just needs to concentrate on tweeking their attitude towards the competition and not bash at every opportunity that arises. Showcase your product, give good information, show results and make your customers happy. Let your products speak for you.

    He really needs an attitude adjustment: http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showpo...5&postcount=87

    Plus he is whining to me about not being able to defend himself, unbelievable. I thought he didn't care about this board filled with wannabe's?
