Warning to ALL BMW - Santee CA / San Diego

So this guy named Colin, was the one going to do my turbo install.

He has a one garage shop there, and things seemed ok at first. Then things got weird, talking about his business partner scamming someone out of money and such. All the sudden this business partner is back and was going to help work on my car.. So i took my turbos canceled the job and left.

I left the guy 340$ for the seals kit on the turbos. The guy is now saying he doesnt owe me anything and has my money.

Just a warning to everyone, seems im going to have to go to court over this crap. But i have just informed the police.

So if you know anyone who owns ANY bmw in the san diego are warning.

The address is - 10925 Wheatlands Ave
Santee, CA 92071

Garage List
Wow. Hate to hear about getting screwed. I to gyped many years ago on my Twin Turbo Z and lost a grand on "fake" JWT's bought on the "internet;" long before eBay, PayPal, CraigsList. Since JWT was up in El Cajon, I brought it to them and they verified the turbo's weren't from them.

Anywho, I used to live in Santee.

Say, what kind of turbos you getting installed? I'm saving my pennies for a Vargas Stage 2 and hope to get them by summer. Already have AR Design DP's on ice that will go in with the turbos. Planning on doing all the installs myself as it's no where near as bad as replacing turbo's on my Z which required pulling the motor (to do it right).

Sounds like a case of defamation of character to me - consult a lawyer.

That sucks man. I'd just take the $340 hit because I feel hiring a lawyer will be even more expensive in the long run. Just my $.02, good luck.

Next time do yourself a favor and go to a reputable indy shop. But really, good luck with this man. Sounds like a mess.

+1. Take advantage of their services while you're in. Don't give those bloodsucking civilian lawyers a dime of your hard-earned money!

Sorry to hear this. Guessing you didn't pay with your credit card? It would be an easy dispute and they would reverse the charges. But wow this guy is insane. Looks like you're in for a fight to get your money back.
