Good afternoon all!
I recently bought a single turbo kit from AC Fabrication for my 2009 BMW 335xi
I am here to share my experience and review of the kit.
So lets begin.
I bought this kit from AF Fabrication I talked to Anthony for few months asking all sort of questions regarding kit he sold me.
He responds really fast usually within 1 hour.
After i figured out what i wanted he send me invoice to Paypal.
I paid that invoice and in 1 week my turbo kit was by my door.
Everything came in one box and well packed.
I ordered full kit without Turbo because i have Comp 6467 laying around .
Here are some pictures of this beautiful kit.

no offense to the OP (new member, no post history, link to instagram???)

but this seems like ACF is trying hard to shake off some neg rep on the forums from screwing some of the other members (including me)

funny to see Anthony respond so quickly when it comes to new potential customer, but once you hand over your money, the guy becomes super hard to get in touch with from my experience.

I would disagree with this. ive had my ACF kit for a few months and about a week after I installed it one of the wastegate lines came apart. I emailed Anthony and he sent me a new line! took about a week if that. also when I was installing the kit he was very helpful with answering any questions I had on the installation.

So dude drops a bunch of shipping photos, calls it a review, and it's a first post. Hmmmm ... well in this market, let me guess that this post comes with a kickback from the vendor. This may be legit, but it smells fishy and it is just the kind of thing that forums become an environment to create a mirage of reality. Forums should be about transparency - a bright light benefits all.

I understand for a number of people English is not a primary language. But this first post also reads like Nigerian spam mail. Punctuation is spotty, language is odd, information structure odd.

What I like about this forum is that everyone can see who and how are people reacting to the posts.

Regardless, we should just cut OP some slack, since he is probably just excited about his build and want to share some pics. Nothing wrong with that. I was too when I got my kit. But please do a proper review when you get everything bolted on.

Just FYI, here is my experience with ACF. It is pretty self explanatory.

For anyone wondering, this user's IP traces back to a home broadband account and not an IP washing proxy/vpn service. The forum does some simple checks for this that I can look up when needed and I have more deep digging features that I can enable if this becomes necessary. It isn't uncommon for manufacturers to ask their users to post up some photos, which they will then do mostly as a favor rather than an in depth guide borne from enthusiasm to post. I ask people to do that all the time and they aren't even my customers lol

I can make the voting private, but I think people should be able to own the negative reps they hand out instead of hiding behind secrecy. This also contributes to a healthier conversation flow, rather than one riddled with disgruntled people downvoting each other, and you can vote as much as you want. Also, it's nice to see who appreciates your postings as well.

If someone's post does get five negative reactions, it will be hidden. Also if their posting ratio is poor enough, their accounts can be limited or disabled, etc. So all those functions still exist.

Agree with everyone who thinks this is fishy.

I am not discounting the satisfied customers ACF has, there seems to be plenty of those. There also seems to be plenty of dissatisfied customers for a variety of reasons, and these types of posts serve to discredit them when they post their experiences. I have no respect for vendors who engage in these types of games.

Reminds me of the whole Omar repping Jpworks thing, except ACF hasn't outright scammed people to my knowledge.

I never posted here because I am active on other forum like N54tech. He asked me to post review here if i wanted it so did.
So what if my typing is bad , English is not my first language nor second so cry me a river. ...
I can post 20 emails back and forth with Anthony if that makes you feel better. Why would I waste 2 hours taking pictures and 2 hours trying to figure out how to post it on this website because images are too big..

How did he screw people up in the past. i want to know too.

Thanks for sharing the photos, if you have anything else to share that would be great!
