I'm so sorry to hear about this situation man, like others I'd be happy to help pitch in for shipping the car back to you when the time comes. Hopefully Shiv can accommodate your car in the short term, there's tons of CA guys on the forum so I bet you'll find the help you need and deserve. It's a real shame this happened to HPF, and a bigger shame that they never seemed to take a serious look into the exceptional motors BMW has made since the E46 days. Property/asset theft is so disgusting...

Totally feeling your pain right now! They don't have my car or as much money as they got of yours, but they owe me $2700 or my intercooler and exhaust I ordered from them back on April 11th!!!

Any chance you could pm me Chris's number, cuz I am having ZERO luck with getting a hold of anyone over there

It just pisses me off because they shouldn't have taken my order if they couldn't fill it! I also just spoke to them last week to get the cinco de mayo 10% discount on my order since it hadn't shipped. They said sure and it still hasn't hit my account either!!! Totally feel like I was taken advantage of by a knowing party right now....which if that's the case, then that makes them no better than the thief that stole from them.

I can't even imagine how much you're freaking out right now. There is a guy on e46fanatics who just had a stage 3 car built and it's finished minus unlocking the aem controller and tuning!!!

I'm in Portland. Wedge might be able to temporarily snag it while shipping gets sorted. I'll shoot him a txt.

Read the thread in the link posted on page 1. Apparently the staff had no idea about this (going out of business) until yesterday.

If you paid by credit card or paypal get on the phone and block the charge. There are all kinds of protection against fraud available, it is part of the fees they charge. My Visa card for example, someone does not ship or misrepresents, I can block it and I do not have to pay and merchant does not get paid until issue is revolved one way or another. If they merchant was acting in bad faith I do not pay ever.

edit: you can at least flag it so if it does show up you're good but if it doesn't you are covered.

I'd be happy to pitch in a few bucks myself. HPF has known this day was coming for a LONG time and the fact they just kept screwing you makes me sick.

Yeah, I don't buy that no one knew things were on the cusp of sinking. I've worked for a small company before where it almost went under and we knew it. Not to mention the owner made us aware so we were able to make arrangments if need be. That's what a good business owner does.

I'm going to try if I can't get a hold of them. The order was placed April 11th though. The charge has already posted to my account, billing cycle ended and I paid my card balance. I'm not sure I will have any luck, but it is my next option to look at.

HPF 335i #1,

I'm in the Portland area as well. If you need anything sorted, please don't hesitate to PM me. I'll help to my abilities.

I also have some contacts in the auto shipping business, if need be.

Ya. I have no idea. Sounds like everyone (owner, the investor guy) was expecting the lawsuit to go their way. How he didn't plan for the possibility of not winning, I don't get.

You have 60 days to protest a charge (my card does) so I'd also try flag it just in case. All it means is they investigate the charge, and if it is clear you never received anything they don;t make you pay. You'll get a credit on your card eventually.

They really do not want to send money to a business that does not exist anymore, so if you tell them what is going on they will shut down any further payments to them as well.

I was really surprised when they told me how they work, you actually do get something for all those fees they charge. And believe me you do not want to be a business that pisses off a credit card company.
