Just want to say thanks for the traffic hits on my small site. Making a difference on my site rank.

My traffic line already runs in from
SA, Ireland, Australia, Namibia, New Zealand, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, UK, Sweden. :aggresive:

Im sure that whatever system you guys have installed will last and give you many happy days.

Up to you to take that “whatever” out of it.

Chris the worlds a much bigger place than Nelspruit and the inside of your 2.2 Hilux bud. :thumbup:

Thanks gents and all the best. :thumbup:

Demon/Derick,

You have something to say to me? Or do you have a problem with me? Why don't you say it outright?

derick just looking at some of the replies , just be straight to the point , if i look at the reply to theo you made a big mistake as this is one of the most widely known cruisers in south africa and beyond ( australia , states etc ) , i had the utmost pleasure of working on it and it has been great for me personally and business wise so slow down with the replies thickness , you might get a lot of hits but it does not mean it is going to work out in orders , i know from my instrumentation business that it works like this and this has been over the last 20 years , had a friend the other day after costing him over 7k ( actually he picked his isuzu up today ) that wanted to go the original system but he was not told oops you dont have a flow meter , you dont have new o2 sensors , you dont have this etc and after many a debate his van is now running albeit with a spits system on motor and box and he is happy as he has been sitting for the last 4 months getting stuffed around. and he drove it out today after 1 week of wiring etc ( ok he forgot to tell me he bought the van as an empty shell ) . your system looks good but you have to hit the niche in the market that is looking for it dont give the guys flak about certain questions as it wont help you to promote your product.
fair the yanks and the aussies dont know as they have their own homegrown systems ( aem , haltech etc ) make no mistake they are good , but pricey so yes they will go look elsewhere as with the exchange rate it might be worth while , but when looking at the vvt with the immobiliser built in i was quoted 1000 dollars to sort and even from pretoria the price was stupid ,
but some of the guys have valid questions so answer them properly and not make a silly comment about his seat colour ( even though theos seats are terrific )

It seems one lives and learns, in the past I made a terrible judgement error in defending you Derrick, to the detriment of good friendships.

Derrick, one things for certain, you aren't doing your business any favours on this forum. The hilux crowd are very fond of Lexus conversions as you are know and therefore this is a prime place to show a professional approach/attitude to selling/marketing your products. Thus far the impression I get is certainly not favourable toward you or your products.

I'll go as far as to say that should you continue with these types of remarks against forum/club members it could well lead to you been banned. That's not a threat but rather the impression I get personally. If the mods feel I've overstepped, please delete.

Regards,
Mr B

Earlier I had a look at the membership count, 7000 + and counting. I think it's a feather in the cap of this great forum, and all the members that make it great.

Not everybody will agree to everything all the time, we're individuals with different tastes and preferences after all. If you don't agree with something, that's your right, but it's not your right to insult people.

Unfortunately, this guys' behaviour is unacceptable, and I don't think I'm the only one with that impression. I will definitely not back off after being threatened and insulted.

I agree with you guys, he is not in line with the forum's rules and if there is one more wrong step we will take action even if he is a commercial member. As Cassie pointed out it is not to say if somebody is a commercial member it will give him the right to attack members.
