I am really sorry for letting you all down.
I didn't mean to 'flake out' by any means. I just don't think I can keep the process of the uncertainty because of the work schedule. It's a very long drive from here to powerchip's office in Costa Mesa.

Hopefully when they have everything done and ready so I can stop by, get it done in a given time they promise, I will try it again.

Once again... my apologies to you all... I really mean it.

I kinda don't want to blame Powerchip for everything though. They asked me if I'd reschedule for another time and they'd pay for the Dyno. It was very nice of them to say so, but I refused it.

I am sure Jeremy was really sick for today, so I don't want to blame him for being sick. It's something you can't control, so I am ok with that.

I just think it was not the right time for me to get it. Things happen in people's lives, and I am sure powerchip has its own reason why things didn't work out the way expected.

Ok, enough BimmerFest forum for today... gotta get back to work.

Really, it's okay to blame powerchips, they stood YOU up, not the other way around. It's pretty obvious they don't care about their customers.

Just ridiculous, hope they don't need any new customers.

thanks everyone for your many words of encouragement and wisdom.

I, however, would like to either close this thread of at least change the title of it so I don't mislead any other readers into something I didn't bring into reality.

Does anyone know how to do it?

Please read post #8, 9 and 10.

What a bunch of stupid, f***ing a$$holes... I hate the fact that I even used to think they were good people.
