Rickerbucks on this site is a client of mine and He ordered savinis for the Yellow camaro we built him and he has some quality control issues on all 4 wheels.. the paint is chipping off in Giant sections???
A second client who put savinis in his Z06 has issues where the raw aluminun that was cleared has massive striations in it on 2 wheels?? and dead smooth on the other 2 ??
Nice wheels , but , the support and customer relations just aren't there with this company. too bad.

Unfortunately this is a re-occurring theme here with these wheels, bad finish, bad vibration or both. But remember they have a "NEW Paint Process" that will fix all these problems.....Yeah Right and I have some Ocean Front Property in Arizona also.

This is just another reason I made this thread so that people can be made aware of this wheels, the service and the drama that you have to go through.

Here is the update from BFXAUTO....whatever this means....

John,

I apologize for the delay. We have been out of the office this week. I Spoke with Savini and they have pretty much reworked the wheels with new parts. When I spoke with them this morning, they are supposed to email both of us with all the information on what exactly they did and shipping info. They said that anytime after Monday, delivery will be Tuesday of the following week. So, you will see these back to you on Tuesday from what I understand.

I will keep you posted as I get updates.

I was told the same thing. I have pics that prove otherwise with mine. The guys in the office don't have a clue at the incompetance in the shop. By now they should have known this though. Just a shitty company all around.

They are probably just saying that to BFXAUTO. I hope I'm wrong.

Well the jist of the e-mail stated that this is total BS, That PQ was told the EXACT same thing, that if need be I can come to California to resolve this issue etc.....

Of course his resposne was he is waiting on Savini, that it is in Savini's hands yada yada yada.........LIP SERVICE.

At the VERY EARLIEST I am thinking it will be 2 weeks...............HOPEFULLY they will not vibrate, BUT I highly doubt it......Then the real issues will begin.
