    Is MBworld a conflict of interest? Dodger63 and Kema silenced for asking where their parts are

    I believe Evosport to be a stand up company that does great work. I would not hesitate to recommend them and have used them and will in the future.

    Part of what makes forums powerful and useful for customers is the ability to post about their experience. This is why MBworld offers a conflict of interest as it is simply too tempting for criticism to be removed and there is a history of it.

    So when things go wrong, and nobody is perfect, criticism is deleted or silenced. This censorship is something that has been an issue for some time. If issues can simply be removed from the public eye that makes one less inclined to correct those issues. The temptation to abuse this is simply too great, for any business.

    Look at this post by dodger63 in a thread that was locked shortly after: http://www.mbworld.org/forums/c63-am...port-rant.html

I've been patient with them but it's about time we get answers in the e55 forum there was a similar post about rotors! Idk just seems like terrible business.. Most suppliers charge when they ship? But evosport charged in full and have not come through what gives.. Let's get some real answers..

    EVOSPORT what's the deal!!! Weres are !!!
    Why the excuses!!!! This is not good business practice!!
    The thread was locked shortly after this and numerous posts were deleted. We did not get to see how the issue was resolved or if it was (I do not doubt that it was).

    The reason this is being brought up is not to criticize Evosport who no doubt resolved all the issues but justify our existence as an independent forum necessary for users to get an unbiased view that can not be achieved elsewhere in the MB online community. We put our users first, before business. This situation on MBworld was simply a perfect example to highlight what we mean and how we differ.

    Damn, are you serious? I was only given infractions for making sexual jokes Click here to enlarge but then I was close with the w203 moderator (nlpamg) who by the way is a real cool guy. Mr. Vanos is real cool too. Those are the only cool mods I can think on MBWorld.

    Sure one second i was airing out at UPS which was used by Tire rack looks like Mb world admins figured that somehow goes towards crappy shipping by tirerack.

    I mean it, guy had a huge hard on making his "moderation" personal, following me around to sections he wasn't even a moderator for.

    I consider him part of the problem.

    Took a look at that thread and your first post is pretty harsh but you were banned and so was the guy who responded. Bans get thrown out like candy to kids on halloween.

    For the record, Evosport always did an awesome job shipping anything I needed to be shipped providing tracking information right away. Really some of the most professional and quickest shipping I have experienced from any vendor, actually, flat out the best.

    That really sucks to hear man, I place an order for Evosport rotors with ACG about a month ago being promised I'd receive them in 2-3 weeks.... Well needless to say I was very skeptical in the delivery issues Evosport was having at the time but was told they were all caught up.

    I guess we'll see if that's the case or not seeing how they are now a week past the promise of delivery, and even worse my wheels are now 3 weeks past the "worst case" completion date (because they have never developed a set for a W211). Guess that's entirely my fault using a wheel company that everyone is skeptical about, that I can live with. Sucks paying that amount of money for parts with reputable companies and never knowing when you can expect to receive them (especially where I have no one local to order them from being where I live, so you can only go from word of mouth).

    Not trying to $#@! or add flame to the fire, just sharing my current experience.

    Most importantly: ACG has been nothing but helpful and responsive throughout my entire purchase history with them and I'll be more than happy to continue working with them in the future. They are in this instance just retailers of the products I'm purchasing so to fault them for delivery issues would be entirely unfair. Peter and James run a honest, class act establishment.

    I was a member on MBW since '05 when I bought my first E55&had numerous friends over there..up until the CLK63BS came out& Evosports golden child JRcart joined up&spent like $70k building his BS..he treated(treats)the members like 2nd class citizens&when I had enuff&spoke my mind guess what...Brad banned me for life!

    The hypocrisy&special treatment over there is just disgusting. You are definitely NOT treated equally&without bias. And what USED to be a good place for MB/AMG owners to hang out&get/share info has gone downhill over the past few years quite rapidly.

    But the best part is,Im still over there posting Click here to enlarge
