    Tuner Wars

    I am sure this will end up getting locked for some reason or another, but I would like to think we can have adult discussion without it turning into free fall bad mouthing!

    I am intrigued as to why people feel the need to support one tuner to the point that they will just use forums to slag off the competitor at an slight given opportunity? What is the purpose of this? What do they gain? what do they hope to happen?

    These days we have a good choice of tuners to use, 6 years ago that really wasn't the case. Its great we have choice and I am sure some get it wrong now and again, but some of the unnecessary back lash replies/threads we get are shocking!!

    I honestly thought football supporters were bad but tuner supporters are a whole different league, quite senseless in my opinion.

    there are some hardcore tuner supporters on here indeed

    I have only used one out of the main two and at first I found them very nice to deal with but when dealing with them on a second occasion I found them hopeless and very rude

    However going by my years as a user on here I think all of them are hit or miss at times

    Most of the shouting is done on the internet by a key few who get a discount of some sort or fell into the trap of the "gaffer is my mate" nothing to do with they want your money.

    Talk to the majority and most will just use who is best via there reputaion or easiest to get to.

    I was just talking to someone about this earlier, my feeling on it is that people are essentially like sheep. People stick with the safe option and choose to defend it to the hilt because nobody likes admitting something they have bought could either be crap or worse than something else. Everyone goes to one place because 30 other people have been there and got some gains from it.

    I think praising the tunner you have used and are happy with would be much more productive than just bad mouthing all the others

    For example:

    Q: What tuner should I use

    A: Don't use XYZ they are crap OR I've always been happy with the service ABC have given

    First part of the answer is always going to be better and the user posting the information will always come accross better

    Tbh all tuners and suppliers spend more time engineering the description rather than the product, charging crazy amounts for what is over priced and under engineered tat. Thats my opnion any way

    Agreed there Brett.
    On a side note I have just received very good service from one of the tuners who has a really good offer on rear anti roll bars and also has them in stock.
