So you just completely acted dumb on purpose in this post? I don't like when people do that. Why would you do that? Does it make you feel cool? Do you think people laugh when they see your posts? I used to, but not anymore after a while.

I seriously don't plan on getting my deposit back. But if that's the case, I want Aleks to come on here in black and white text and admit we got screwed. Or, refund our $$$.

It's not the amount, it's the principle. I would defend you if you got screwed, even if you drive a sedan.
This is how this forum is, You are the victim but for some reason you turn out to be the ******* when you put up your experiance and put who ever it is on blast. SMH so sick of this crap.

End of July? Probably even longer though I won't me home for most of the year though so I don't care a super lot, but would rather it come out sooner than later to see them out there on the streets and what they are capable of as well as any info they release as far as wheel hp numbers. From there I will form a decision for maybe a Christmas present?

Yes, let's do. I think it's a worthwhile and exciting project. How about one for the 32, we are quick to put up deposits.

It is sad that those who were looking forward to our supercharger now have to deal with your utter and horrible rudeness. Please leave this thread and never post on mbworld ever again about the headers. If the header project needs to be scrapped because you can not understand what it was in the first place (a back burner project), so be it. It was done as a favor in the first place and is destroying our passion for making performance kits. We have built the absolute fastest and most powerful Mercedes packages in the world, and the headers serve no purpose to us except to help the community. We are now trying to set records in big hp for the 55 motor and you believe that your headers should take priority? That is pure ignorance. Our reputation speaks for itself and our customers appreciate that to the fullest extent.


Thank you for destroying another thread becuase of your arrogance from a company that actually works with Mercedes as its priority and helps out the community daily. Hopefully a moderator may be able to help and clean the thread so that I can continue to post awesome things, if a mod needs to contact me I am more than willing to help in any way.

And because of your ignorance, others who had questions about the supercharger went unanswered. I will once again start a new thread, if you decide to post in it, there will be no updates on any projects until they are completed. The time needed to babysit these comments takes away from our development time and further prolongs the delivery date of our kits.

Enough is enough.
Wow...

You email a disgruntiled customer privately. Never ever publicly bash a customer. EVER! I don't care it you are Kleeman and the customer is completely wrong.

Speedriven, you are out of line.

That being said, I am looking forward to this new supercharger and numbers.

Update!

Supercharger mounting plate is almost complete. We are making the first prototype by hand and then they will be sent to the machine shop and CNCed for the final product

Let the record stand that my deposit was refunded tonight.

Thank you, Marcin, for addressing this and rectifying the situation. I have no further axe to grind. Good luck on your upcoming ventures.

How loud will it whine? Will the whine be louder or sound different to our stock SCs? The stock SC whines just right and has a unique "tone" to the whine. I hate the really loud screaming whines, don't get me wrong I like them on Cobras and what not but definitely not a Merc. For me the SLR has the best SC sound BY FAR!!!

...by the way I know I keep asking this question on SC threads but it's very important to me how loud it whines and how it whines. Although I can guarantee my wife will whine very loud when I'll tell her I'm getting one

$100 won't change my life in the slightest. I could immediately pay cash for this pie-in-the-sky Whipple upgrade he's teasing you with.

Again, it isn't about the $$$. It's about the respect. I'll give $1,000 to a person in need... but don't steal $10 from me.

Cheers,
Aww how adorable, headers for a 3.2 The 3.2 is a cute little motor
