One of the first to sign up back then was Jimmyback who's been around way before I came onto the scene in 2005, many early members are still on the forum now so guess we've done well considering the volume of sheer lies and rumours that have been spread over the years (mainly about me, my company & forum on fb).
The forum has taken some stick but it's still here and stronger than ever.
There's an old saying that 'any advertising is good advertising' "good or bad" and how true that statement is.
The forum has come on leaps and bounds over the years as we have good support from members at shows and any event put on by our team of committed organisers who have done a great job for all involved in the gtir community.
The admin on the forum keep on top of things keeping the undesirables out which is paramount for the genuine members and enthusiasts to feel that they can trust in any work or purchases they may make from anyone advertising on the forum.
We don't want this place ending up like the other forum and certain fb pages that are plagued with greedy profiteers looking to nab the newbies that sign up who then inevitably get snared in the trap to get them to a certain tuning company where their pockets are raped, very clever scam I give them that.
Gti-r-us has come a long way from back in 2005 and with the take over of TOTS motorsport the future is very bright we hope to carry on with our development of parts, tuning, engine builds etc as we have been doing over the years, helping in any way possible to keep your cars on the road.
So really this is just to let people know that what you may read on fb and the like (same individuals stirring as usual) is just total fabricated rubbish setup by a handful of conmen to try & put my new company down just as they've done from day one when they found out we were about to obtain a dyno and expanding into the tuning market. Genuine owners whos cars we have worked on and tuned know what we are about and the results we have obtained speak for themselves, that cant be denied.
Anyone who genuinely has or had an issue with our work please come forward on this thread and explain your concerns as im certainly aware of none, any genuine issues i will always try to resolve (as some will confirm) so dont be shy come forth and explain in front of everyone as i have nothing to hide.
Sick world we live in unfortunately, it ceases to amaze me the lengths some will go to in order to grab as much as they can, just sheer greed by a certain few individuals.
That's about it really but just wanted to say a big thanks to all of you for your support and as always I and my team will do our best to keep everything running as smoothly as possible.
Always going to be haters but hey that's life, with jealousy, greed, resentment their will always be issues and that's why their will always be a divide in the gtir community as there has been over the years with other companies that have bailed out maybe due to the same reasons surrounding my company now.
I have tried to ignore the few concerned & carry on minding my business yet still they keep plugging away bit by bit.
I have now tolerated it long enough, the individuals surrounding the other tuning company are hell bent on trying to put my company out of business so from this point on the gloves are off, i will not be bullied by anyone, especially a bunch of organised cagey thieves who inadvertently steal from the people that are passed onto them by others.
