Why you should NEVER EVER buy from BEGi
 
By linking you to this post on the UK MX5 forum (Nutz) means I can keep track of anyone who chooses to vote (I don't think voting is offered on here - edit - it is, i'm blind, but nevermind!)

Please respond to me on here if you don't want to join / aren't a member of Nutz if you would like to tell me I'm a tool or support me...

I think you should take a minute to at least copy and paste the issue over here, rather than expect people to join that forum to vote.

There has been lots of talk like this over the years and you'll come to find that others here have had problems as well (I myself never have, just stating the truth).

I'm not sure if anything has ever come from the ranting and raving, other than keeping potential buyers from buying maybe.

I browsed through the emails and have formed an opinion. It is not a good one....

Those emails took me on an adventure. I like the part about your attitude changing his view of the British people. That's intense.

I read through them as well, and I formed a few opinions, the strongest one is that Mavalex is a tool.

Why?

levnubhin 03-31-2010 09:55 AM

You knowingly bought a turbo with a 15 day warranty. The turbo failed after the warranty had expired. Begi offered you a replacement at a discounted price. What's the problem?


Chinese turbo's are hit or miss and you should have known that before hand. I am on my second one that I got from ebay. The first one lasted 2 weeks, fortunately the place I got it from had a 30 day warranty and they replaced it without question and the replacement has been running strong for almost a year.

None of the parts Begi built failed on you, you chose to cheap out on the turbo and you fell into the miss category. It's sucks but that is the risk you took.

The problem is I expect my cheap chinese POS to last forever and if it does break sometime in the future that it should always be covered. I should also get is all shipped for free and have the new turbo sent out first for free.:giggle:

At least that is how I read his emails. He sounds like a little bitch.

So this brings the count for the month of march to:

BEGi 2
Whiners 0


EDIT:

I don't know why people go in with unreal expectations, and then think the best thing to do is air it out, which hurts the community (and vendors).

I had my problems, but stayed civil, and they were eventually resolved.

I've got no problems with Corky Bell. His sentence structure is occasionally a bit tortured, the homesy-wisdom attempts at humor sometimes fall flat, and the photography could be a lot better, but on the whole I'm really enjoying Maximum Boost and I think I'm learning a lot.

Oh, he sells turbo stuff, too?

webby459 03-31-2010 11:00 AM

Mavalex, tell your mom she owes me back my $20, I didn't come.

You want over the top customer service, you want to pay for it, and you want products that have been tested by what may be thousands, you go to FM.

You want more more cutting edge products and to deal with a smaller shop, with all that goes along with it, you go to Begi. You may have to work a little to really open the lines of communication, and you may not get your shit in a week, but from what I've seen they make good products. My parts are coming next week, I'll keep all you gaithz posted. If you are bitching because your cut rate Chinese turbo failed, whatever.

If you want bleeding edge, go with one of the guys making custom parts. Be prepared to wait, and to work with them to get you what you want, how you want it.

If some guys have persistent complaints with Begi, I hope they put in some serious effort to work it out with them, in private. I'm sure either Stephanie or Corky will answer your calls, and work with you to work out your issues.

By airing out this shit in public on these forums, especially without putting in some real effort to communicate properly with these people in private, you are doing the whole community a dis-service. It would be a truly sad day if some bad word of mouth injured this small company to the point where it couldn't continue providing some alternative parts in this market.

Let's all remember that we are not dealing with stock, off the shelf parts here.

hustler 03-31-2010 11:29 AM

My AF hot parts too a whopping 5-weeks. :) Tim is faster, cheaper, and superior to all. I hear he's also more fertile.
