Not an exact date, but IIRC it should hopefully be done sometime next week.

the phones were up when I was by there in the end of september after Ike.

they were just ignoring them and letting their their full answering machine sit there and pick them up without being able to record anything.

the place looks very disorganized right now. I decided not to take my car there for that reason.

Yeah, I got the similar story as above so I'll believe it as in PMs others have stated the same. I didn't want to go into Mark's personal details on the forum but he has had to short his staff severely and the reason they aren't answering phones while not cool is because their running around like crazy trying to catch up with half the people they had. He said his secretary is coming back next week and they'll be able to handle the phones.

I'm willing to give this place another shot and just put in a order for more parts to be shipped out when my tranny is complete. I haven't paid yet but I want to see there be plenty of good competition out there for the shops. If I decide to go GTR when it's mod-able then I want to have more than 3 choices... I'll keep everybody updated. He told me he'd have my tranny done in 2 weeks but I told him to focus on more important projects first so we'll see how long till completion and I'll post when I get it.

As for marketing and repping their shop. Like I stated before. This is the most powerful marketing tool these shops have is our word of mouth on here. There are a ton of guys on this forum boosted or going to and if any are like me they look to all of us for answers where to go.

^ I agree. This is the largest forum for the Z/G. Any shop that wants to be a major player on the VQ needs to be involved and engaging here on my350z. It's just a cost of doing business.

I had a good experience with SGP. Mark and Thomas were both straight with me.

^ To my knowledge, Intense has not had any problems or negative experiences with SGP and they have been doing business with each other longer than most people have been members here.

Mike if your current profession becomes unfavorable i have some work for you to do along these lines.

BTW my own recon work saw your car on the dyno. You might be able to beat me now.

I didnt know you were up there when me and Mark got into it.

There's so much that you do not understand that I will post at a later date. He took care of you since you came from Colorado. But for the other 10 cars that are up there, he has a considerable amount of their money(including mine still)

Let me tell you about an instance that happened this week so I can give you an idea of the character we're dealing with(person that just pm'd me).......naw I'll wait

I not getting involed in pissing matches. Why I don't post much, if any, on this forum anymore. You won't recommend Mark/SGP, I would/will. Good luck with your car. [/end]

not that i don't feel sympathetic to the people with issues but from your own experience rude i don't think you can say you've had any trouble with sgp really...luck or whatever the case is, you are fine

All I said is that during the Recon...one of my agents saw you up there...and maybe you would have some input about SGP. Not asking for anything bad...just to inform members whats going on up there.... ie: are they open....are the phones working....is Mark working on cars....is Eric's transmission finished.....just to name a few.

Not trying to start a pissing contest

I got the pictures for CoachK...and will post tomorrow when I get a chance

I too have nothing against Mark....I just wish he could get back on track. You SGP guys may not agree with me....But I think that Mark should just suck it up and get Kyle back in there to help get things right Like Kyle or not...things were never like this when he was there

All I can say is Mark/SGP have treated me fairly. They/Mark has/have fixed several issues that; 1) were found from my perivous installer, 2) have/had arrised due to the elevation change from the move from Colorado 3) is currently fixing from pervious installer.

SGP is open for business. Ike DID put a bump in the road for SGP. SGP received hundreds of phone calls everyday and there is no secretary to answer them. I feel pretty confident in saying that Mark does wish he could answer all of them. Mark did mentioned that SGP's website transfer is having some problems and the sever provider he choose is working on the issues.

Mark and his techs are working on several cars. Make note though there is only three techs working at SGP, including Mark. I do not know anything about anyone's transmission or the status of their car. Personally I feel it is not my business to inquire about someone else's car.

I do/did not know Kyle so I can not speak of him.
