LTMW does it again
Hey guys I wanted to share my experience with LTMW. It has been over a year since I drove down to get some work done by them. At the time I had lowered my car on KWs and put on a set of M359 reps. I then saw a great price on a barely used set of eisenmann race mufflers from another member. I went with the hamann style rear diffuser since they were quad tips. I had heard great things about LTMW back then so I decided to drive down for a day to get the diffuser and exhaust installed. Oh boy did I make a mistake.
Here are the videos of what the exhaust looked like after the installation:
Picture of the receipt:
A couple weeks after the installation I tried talking to the LTMW guys at bimmerfest in 2013. Long was busy and I asked Ivan to come see the car in person since he was the one who did the welds. He said he was busy and to call in the shop. They were unprofessional and I didnt trust them with my car so I went to Chris Castro at Castro Motorsports. He actually knows how to TIG weld unlike the LTMW crew. I exchanged several emails with Long Tran trying to get a refund for the $175. He doesnt think he should pay, so I told him I would share these facts with the forums.GIAC, Brembo, Ohlins, Evolution Racewerks, Wagner, AFE

Some the cars they work on look great, but I have seen some work in the past that looked second-rate.
