When a bunch of us local Chicago guys dyno'ed our 335's there earlier this year, we seen some crazy stuff like a brand new GTR with the engine already dropped to be tweaked. They had a couple of their hardcore race cars where all the nuts had wire locks (very nice). I can safely say that playing with turbo cars for the last ten years, I trust AMS and their quality.

I just wish they had a flash that they sold. I trust being able to roll into their shop to get it flashed back to what ever I need compared to many of the other shops.

Nice job to Eric & the AMS crew.

This is something that, as a few have mentioned already, more of the vendors/shops frequenting these forums should do.

I know that the I have toward your shop/company/crew just grew by leaps & bounds after viewing the video.

Looking forward to your future products & comments.

As others have said, this is a great promo video. As a potential customer who is not local I really appreciate the opportunity to see your shop and get a sense of how you approach your business. Very well done.

As a BMW shop on the other side of the earth it is hard to know who you are dealing with via email or forums. Some companies have a great reputation on the forums but after you deal with them for some time they let you down or rip you off. This is what has happened to me from a forum sponsor here and now i am very wary. A video like this looks fantastic to me as i have instant faith that they are a real shop and not some back yard set up who moves shops, builds products that are substandard or now no longer reply emails or answer phone calls, or even change there cell numbers.... I'll be sure to keep an eye on this company and i feel straight away they they are stand up.
