yea most dealer meets do,when i had my celica we had a meet in austin at a toyota dealer and the only people they would let in on the prizes was the scions none of the celicas or mr2 could win,to me there is no point in dealing with dealers,plus gillman just want your money

Not just that but these guys do "bay days" where people can come in and work on their cars and use the lifts at gillman. These people may be doing anything, be it suspension, engine, etc... and this dealer is sitting there writing down VINs or making note of what people are doing. Not cool.

I had a stage 2 07wrx with 31k miles and 1st gear stripped and it wasn't covered under warranty. I NEVER launched my old car. Babied the heck out of it and I only took it there because I was told they are "mod friendly".... BS... a big load of BS. I told them I could have lied to them and put it back to stock in 3hrs and they said "we can tell if there were bolts messed with". I told them, I can replace whatever bolts I want.

Check this out... They invited AWDTuning (Keith) to their facility to tune cars. And then they got PISSED he was street tuning them How the hell are you going to tune a car without a dyno? gillman is full of fail...

Just stand clear of them. Northpark Suby is where you need to go.

I needed to replace my HID bulbs (one actually) and called up NP and they quoted me 196.00 A PIECE.... I said, no.... I don't need the entire headlight assembly... just the bulbs. He laughed and said, that IS just one bulb.... I was like

Anyways.... Found some nice Zenon bulbs (direct replacements) for 160.00 shipped for both. Tim is a good guy. Will help out whenever possible.

Wow is that messed up... How do you get one of the best Subaru tuners to drive waaay the hell down there and then not offer the equipment you want him to use to satisfy your b/s wants?! I bet they just lost a ton of business by doing that since I'm sure there were alot more people there than just you and Keith who will not recommend them to anyone if not totally trash talk that dealership. I'd rather have a street tune anyways since you will know what the car feels like under load rather than just sitting in a perfect test tube type scenario. Dyno's are good for number reference, but since they're all different it doesn't make sense to have that gauge how well a job the tuner did IMHO. Also, inviting your direct competition as a dealership (Mitsubishi) to the meet was pretty dumb in my book. People are all "hey those Recaro seats are way nicer, I want one of them instead" or something to that effect. Glad I didn't go And thanks for the heads up on that shizz
