    Post Carlisle Changes

    It is a sad state of affairs that money is still what does a lot of talking with sales people and vendors. I met an Audi guy are Carlisle telling me a story of how a Merc dealer discriminated him by the way he looked. He casually walked into a Merc dealer in Germany wearing some jeans and a t-shirt. He wait about 10 minutes and still no one approached him. He eventually walked over to a sales person and said "Hey I would like to buy this car!" (pointing toward a high end Mercedes on the show floor). The sales person said "I'm sorry but we don't just sell Mercedes to any person off the street." The customer became quite disgruntled and had the manager brought out. He gave the manager his piece of mind and basically said that if you don't start treating everyone with respect and with the same degree of customer service then you are more than simply going to head straight out of business. He pulled $70,000 in cash out of his pocket and said "this is as close as you are going to come to getting this" and then walked out. He walked straight across the street and bought a BMW. The point is that a company will loose a lot of loyalty and sales and business if they discrimate and decide that they will only help a certain kind of person. I have had many people PM and email me with HID questions who have bought a kit elsewhere. I am always more than happy to help because I do genuinely want to and I believe it is good business. Nothing pleases me more than receiving a compliment letting me know that I have gone above and beyond the person's expectations. It disgusts me how many times I hear of other vendors and retail venues not even sending a simple response to these customers with information or a note saying they have no information - the customers are simply Ignored!

    Chuck, I can offer up a 35w lifetime warranty single beam HID kit valued at $150. Let me know what you need from me. Thanks, John
  10. I'm with you on this. There is a reason they took at way the real R cars - they just weren't getting the numbers from that line that they needed. Audi has done the same thing with their S-line other than they lower the car a bit with it. Volvo is making a decision based on the mass market - not a small group of enthusiasts that will mod the car anyway. Don't forget that not so long ago and especially in Europe that Volvos were cars for old people! Then the 850 turbo came out and that all changed.

    **server Info Read**

    You'd think for $514 a month they could replace that hard drive on RAID with no down time whatsoever. What's the point of raid if it only stops crashes but then causes downtime anyway? Thanks for the update Chuck - bitch at your server company as they shouldn't require down time for this crap.
