"New site coming september 06"
Am I the only person that thinks it's retarded to close down a website for 2 months? The same thing happened when they changed from rennsport to technik, except that was much longer than 2 months.

I wouldn't exactly call it stupid, they're big enough to where people who need to get a hold of them can or can find a way while the site is down. They need to update all the new products and release which products are no longer under development, consider it a retooling of sorts. Sometimes you've just gotta go what you've gotta do.

Why do you always have to bring negativity into every thread? Obviously there is a reason for them to do that. They are extremely swamped but you wouldn't know that .

Just saying if it was my business I wouldn't be running it like that. No I wouldn't know that because I don't have have the dinero for a SC(or other stuff they carry) because my mommy and daddy don't pay for everything.

EDIT-If you have something to say to me PM me.

I agree having their website down for extended periods is an absolutly stupid proposition, business wise. But Technik (unlike Rennsport) makes a majority of their money thru local enthusiasts & installs (like Mike Benvo), and could give a sh** about anything else if they are too busy to even think. So stop whining and call them...

Well it's not your business but it's not like anyone cares what you have to say anyway. And daddy is not here any more, mommy doesn't pay for **** - kind of pathetic that you had to go there anyway. Get a life, loser.

I don't, I just don't agree with some of their business practices.

alright, well everyone is free to disagree with whatever they may choose to, however when you make comments that aren't exactly the most positive about a company don't you think that makes you look a little foolish- especially when you just disagree with "how they conduct business" i mean heck if they dicked you over that's one thing, but to not like or post against a company because of policies that you may be possibly incorrect about is just disrespectful-

if it's just your opinion, why do you feel the need to create a brand new thread to share it with the world?

edit: I apologize.. you did not create the thread.

Like I said, it's their business. Relax. Everyone needs a break every now and then. Time to refocus business strategy. Businesses do that from time to time.

You know what I would say, at least Vaio76109 has been a very "consistent" dick the whole time on the forum. If they bug you, just ignore the comments or block his comments, just like we are telling him to ignore the not working Technik website. No need for internet bully's boys....
