Can't sell them because the do not transfer the warranty apparently and I can't return them because they only offer a 1 day return policy apparently, I could've bought the ones on eBay and if I didn't like them I had 30 days to make up my mind not with DAW. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Upgraded-TD04-17T-Billet-Twin-Turbochargers-for-BMW-135i-335i-535i-3-0L-with-N54/283218275861
I saw your pics and screenshot in the other thread. I would be sick if I got those for $2500. My GFs were slightly more with an outlet and heat shield. Hopefully the owner will work with you on the return.

that could be just caked up ceramic coating , and no ebay seller is selling n54 turbos with gtx wheels like you have, Daw is maching the housing to fit the gtx wheel an using a different thrust assembly for stage3/4 i believe i was sent pictures of the process when i was still deciding back in the beginning of this year (could be wrong)
i really dont blame a reseller for not wanting to go through the hassle of reselling your turbos again when you were in a hurry to get, an risk them getting damaged during shipping, thats just a wishy washy buyer imo but i do understand if you have buyers remorse with a big purchase..
No it's not the guy waited 2 months and then said dont send them at this point. Magically they sent the second he said that lmao. I am usually for the vendor you can check my posts but this I would feel same as the buyer did. Unless I was quoted close to 2 months but it does not seem so.

I'm don't have anything to do with DAW except buying there turbos.but from my understanding the owner buys these manifolds from China or wherever and then assembles them in Michigan with upgraded wheels and bearings supposedly. And then offers his 3 year warranty which doesn't seem useful to me since I can't return a product that is unused that I have had for 1 day.
Returning a product and warranty it are two completely different things. You've been jaded by things like Amazon Prime that offer no hassle no questions asked returns lol Very few business will take things back just because you don't want it anymore. If they do then they will charge you a re-stocking fee. The turbo blows up after 1,000 miles then yeah sure cash in on that warranty.

What would you say to your credit card company if you requested a charge-back? "I ordered these turbos and then found out I could've ordered them directly from China for less, can you please charge-back this payment?" Good luck with that. You'll need a valid reason to deny the charge, like, the product is not as described or came no operable, etc. Otherwise, it's just credit card fraud.

Run the turbos and stop having buyers remorse imo. You have them. They will perform I am sure. Let this be a lesson to others not to order shit off Facebook lol

Whats the goal with these? You going to try and be the first to attain the claimed 850rwhp/905hp potential? Be good to see some 140+mph 1/4 potential from twins in a full weight e90.
Done in a 6MT 2 years ago with GC's full weight E90 mid 170s 1/2 mile and 140MPH 1/4 mile trap. Short memories on this platform.

Your too quick to be a smart ass. I like you but you have to be on ball when your going to be condescending. He said what Is your goal to be first to hit the claimed 850whp meaning the first to hit 850whp with these turbos. I don't think you guys made 850whp with those stage 4 turbos right? Some people have short memory, some just don't comprehend cause a chip on shoulder. See how being aggressive for no reason makes me look like ass. Even if the statement was about a general record and was wrong you don't have be rude , also this way If turns out your wrong you don't look like twirp. Anyway I really do like vtt products just I been noticing you getting worse recently and it's like someone had take tony place aka rob rb and now I guess you are taking his place .


Hopefully you prove me wrong

Yep infection right from China šŸ˜‚. The message I'm getting from DAW is that I'm stuck with these turbos even after I told the owner that I have changed my mind after waiting over 2 months and to not ship them and this is what I get for my long wait.
I can tell you why you waited 2 months. They were literally on the slow boat from China. It takes 3 months from when it leaves the chinese port and then you have to go through customs and pray that goes well and then they ship to the shop.

The chinese are notorious for lying. We have delt with them at my company and know all of their tricks. They will tell you it is shipping tomorrow when they God damn know it is shipping next month. They have zero problems lying. They never want to lose a sale and will lie lie lie to keep your money.

I am sure they told DAW they were shipping when they really were not. It's like the 1st rule in their playbook other than agreeing with whatever you say and then going and doing what they were going to do in the 1st place anyways because, fuck you.

Word to the wise for anyone dealing with chinese companies and shipping: get the paperwork sent to you. All of it showing it was actually shipped and loaded on the boat. They are happy to keep your money and lie to you. Get everything in writing and put some teeth into it.

Well i ordered my stage 4s July 30th. Had plans to go to the track September 13th told Shawn the owner this told me they would be there no problems because that would be within the 2-3 weeks he advertises on his website. Kept asking him he keeps telling me your turbos are at the bearing builder or one time he told me a shipment of his Alibaba manifolds was lost. It was nonstop excuses out of Shawn for over 2 months. At one point he tried sending me a stage 3 so I could get them sooner. At the end I told him I wanted to go single and I have texts from him that he said you can return them not a problem. Now his representative or whatever you want to call him Nick Olson (aka slow335is) is voiding my return for me? I have never been involved in a more poorly and awkwardly run business and yes maybe I have been spoiled by real business with policy's that are clear and make sense.View attachment 32300View attachment 32301mind you this is all after I asked when my turbos would be arriving and they were at FedEx misplaced by them. So I'm not even sure why he proceeded to send them out to me after he knew how I felt about the whole situation.
Looks like you have proof of an authorized return. If they won't respond now call your CC/bank.

Do it now send them your documentation of communications and get your money back while you still can.

Nick is an authorized vendor. They have multiple "authorized vendors" pushing these things. For what it is worth Nick has been accused of being a scammer and run out of the Ecoboost community.

Show us the message that says id like to cancel my order and be refunded, to me looks like you were hesitating because you wanted them right then and there an you never had your mind made up about twins or single before you ordered , you just beat around the bush then you got them an are upset because of ceramic coating caked up or casting was rough on thw bottom of housing , which wont change anything an youll never see it no matter how good they look.
I heard stage 4s are on the second revision which just came out not long ago so you probably were one of the first ones to get there stage 4s revised. Next time pay with paypal and deal with shawn only not some kid/guy whos reselling these for a company imo .

If I was nit picking , that dyno is 'just' under 850 and is says 'at engine' ? Not at the wheels?
and when we talk 1/4 mile terminal speeds we are talking propper drag strip time. I couldnt find a slip for your car save for you have a 10.7 138mph time on drag times, someone with stg3s
None the less great work and good power though , total respect for that.

You may have missed that I was curious about 'these turbos'. I have some scpeticism in general about claims balanced with genuine ethusiasim to see results on the platform. The units may indeed also implode after 3months too.

140+mph (emphasis on the + ) for genuine-non-dyno-queen 850rwhp in this platform ought to be at least mid 140s on the 1/4 (if its able to make the power at the track)
