Just received a phone call to say HPF is no more, come on here and sure enough it is true

It is so ****, the guys at HPF were awesome, always willing to help and went above and beyond for me.

Man, that's unfortunate. Apologies for stating Russ should have given notice. I wish the crew and their families the best for getting back onto their feet.

Sad day for customers and the E46 community. Say what you will about whatever but HPF brought a new product to market for the E46 M3. I think that is a cool and it is sad for everyone involved. If it is true then all the owners can pull together to become their own support network and I hope that E46Fanatics can be a part of that.

Tim
If you could also find out what happens to all the folks with outstanding orders or what not, I would appreciate it. I may be jumping the gun, but I have called my bank and begun the dispute process.

Ive just talked to HPF and also just finished looking over the thread.

HPF is not running away with anyones money, thats absurd. Theres more speculations here than real customers that are being helped currently.

Tomorrow, from the phone conversation i gather as much.....

as today was a very tough day for chris and the whole crew, the thread will be opened back up when HPF is ready after going through and evaluating priorities like cars that are being built/setup in the shop.

I think all that needs to be said in this thread has been said, the more developing news that come out in the next few days, we will all be informed as a community. I am closing this for now.

good luck to those at HPF and more so, to those with cars, engines and MONEY out of pocket

Sad to hear - an HPF S54 was on my potential list if my touring engine dies
