    • Jalopnik picks up on BenzBoost story regarding Evosport and Evosport threatens legal action

      One of the largest auto blogs on the net, Jalopnik, has been monitoring our story with Evosport. Things have gotten very heated as of late when Evosport had their attorney, Todd Serota, threaten my father as well as myself with legal action. BenzBoost was given a deadline and told to pull down the articles, looks like we missed it.

      BenzBoost finds Evosport's tactics of covering this story up and threatening us with legal action just rather sad. Instead of going about this professionally, Evosport has been closing threads on MBworld and deleting any mention of it. Since they can not do that on BenzBoost, they have sent their attack dog lawyers after us in an attempt to control things here as well.

      We will not be intimidated or budge from doing what is in our users and the consumers best interest. Consumer advocacy is something we need more of, not less. Mr. Serota, people like you are the problem in this country trying to keep the truth hidden and not having the integrity to do what is right. BenzBoost had the courage to reveal the details of what was taking place and did so accurately. Amazingly, you reached the wrong conclusion but we would not be surprised you would jump to whatever conclusion your clients would want you to jump to.

      You have done the opposite of quieting this down, only making major blogs take notice of it. Aren't you only digging the hole deeper for your own clients? BenzBoost is not afraid of you and not all that impressed with your scare tactics. Plus, aren't you a patent lawyer? Maybe you should stick to that as we can write a much harsher letter than what you provided.

      Also, threatening my 73 old year old father is flat out despicable. We are saddened that Evosport seems to endorse harassing senior and retired family members over forum posts they can not control. This does not reflect well on any company and does not reflect well on you as an attorney. If people wonder why attorneys get a bad name, it is due to actions such as this.

      At this point, it should be clear to you it is impossible to get this story removed as you have now served to propagate it. Well done Evosport and well done Mr. Serota. In our opinion, you have completely mis-managed this situation. Good luck prosecuting the entire internet, it does not seem the Evosport budget will allow for it.

      We have posted the legal documents Jalopnik obtained aimed at BenzBoost here, you can all review them for yourselves and see the lengths Evosport is willing to go to keep the truth from users on MBworld as well as consumers. BenzBoost will continue to do investigative reporting in the best interest of our users and all individuals in the German automotive performance industry.

        I am so glad I saw this thread. Everyone needs to know about evosport. Only way to get them improve is for the enthusiast community to be informed. Evosport will either get it together or close down. Probable better to close down. The current owners have demonstrated the lack of ability to properly run a business and probably will scew up again.
        Owning a business is not for everyone.
        Some people need to just work for someone else and do what they know how to do.

        The rotors I ordered for @SL55K have shipped from evosport. We'll do a review of the customer service once I receive them. So far so good.

        Evosport was the reason my M3 project took FOREVER to finish. They sent me a "p'n'p" harness for an AEM standalone. It was anything but.
        They wired the pins in all wrong, all the center lugs were off one to the right, they refused to give me any wiring diagram to let me diagnose their harness, and they wanted to run alpha N only.
        huge huge pain in the neck.
