    Since this is a free-for-all and people are soliciting and doing all other sorts of stuff, i figured now would be the perfect time for a shameless plug:

    Since you try to imply that you are suing them you may as well make the evidence available. They will get it in discovery from you no matter what. Of course that is IF you have evidence!

    To make a point:
    after now 100 people have chimmed in and blasted one person it looks now that it was unjustified. At least the accusations that it was intentional fraud, criminal fraud etc. Looks more like it is the other way around to me at least with one of the claimants.
    It has gotten mighty quiet since evidence from EWC has been posted. Why is that?

    I don't have a dog in this fight, but.......

    I'm confident that I am not the only one still waiting for a satisfied policy holder who has been paid on a claim to step up and express their satisfaction.

    I also participated in Ferrari North American sponsored track events which by no means admitting that warranty will be void.

    The posts I have made which include document they have produced in their own letterhead clearly indicates they denied my warranty in bad faith without substantiating the cause other than exhaust manifolds is part of the exhaust system and therefore it is denied.

    In regards to 412s post about Ferrari denying coverage for manifolds..It has happend twice to 2 of my customers. They are currently in court with FNA regarding this issue for thier 355's. By all accounts Slone's comments in his post seem to me, to be a way out of paying. I guess he figures because Ferrari is not paying..why should he.

    I have pulled my hair out battling with warrenty companies many times. Everytime a claim is filed, they ALWAYS try to come up with a reason not to pay. It is up to the owner or the shop to prove the claim. Even then, they may send down a COMPANY paid inspector to make the call, whom may or may not be a real technician. There are so many different ways claims can be twisted around in a warrenty companies favor. They gear their contracts in such a way that in the end, they really will not have to pay a whole lot out of pocket. They are always looking for the CAUSE of the problem ( a very good thing) but in hopes that the cause is something that is not covered.

    Some warrenty companies require the owner to do oil changes every 5k miles. This oil change must be reported to the warrenty company. If the owner goes over his milage for the oil change just once..warrenty denied..no refund..this is another way out for the comapnies. Even if the manufacturer of the car says to change the oil every 15k miles..they still must change it at 5, or every 4 months.

    These companies are in the business to make money, not give it out. You must ask all questions, and have each and every item on the contract explained to you in full, and if possiable written out in long form with a company rep's signature on it. This is the only way you will be able to protect yourself from things like this.

    An example of a warrenty claim that I was fighting mad over. A good customer bought a 96 Vette from us. He drove the car for a few months, then the engine started to knock. Before any work was done on the car, I called the warrenty comapny. They gave me the go ahead to drop the oil pan to see whats up. I did so, and also pulled a front main cap. Found a spun bearing. I phone the warrenty company and told them what I had found. He said they would call me back. An hour goes by and I get the call. Coverage denyed. Why I ask.."over tightened accessory belt put too much strain on the front main of the crank, causing the bearing to spin." I just about fell over my chair laughing, "are you serious?" I said. Where the hell did you come up with that one? "Well" the warrenty guy said.."We spoke to the head mechanic at a GM dealer and he said this was the most likly reason so its not covered". I asked if I could talk to the guy they did and he siad no. So I asked him.."How could the belt be over tightened, when the belt tention is automaticly controled by a spring loaded belt tentioner, and the fact that the belt is a serpentine belt which drives all the accessories, and there is no way to manuel tighten the belts?" "Ahhhhhh..let me call you back" he says. 2 hours go by, I get a call..."under further review we have decided to cover the engine work..you have the ok to remove the enigne and start tearing it down".

    You have attacked EWC for days and led a witch hunt with your deceit and now the the truth comes out and you run for cover behind that statement.
    Be aware that when files an action you open yourself up a counter action. Your statements here will be used against you in any action you bring.

    You should be greatly concerned.

    You are not the only one. At this point in this game I am satisfied that none exist or we would have heard from them by now.

    The fact that ECW can't produce one person, who has been paid on a claim and is satisfied, speaks volumes. In any previous situation here on F-chat where some company has come into question there are usually are a few that will speak up in defense.

    People aren't stupid; they will make up their minds based on how this company has represented itself here. I'd be curious if anyone would even plan to use ECW after this?

    I am fully aware of my actions and I will stand by them. I said nothing that is not true nor I presented evidence that I cannot substantiate. Don't take comfort in the likes of BBB's inability to properly investigate this and close the case.

    I said to you before you seem to be spinning the issue of Exotic Warranty Company denying coverage without cause in other ways that does not do service to you nor the company you are evangelizing.

    I would suggest they start with a new marketing department ASAP. What they have now isn't helping at all.

    I would settle for just one neutral customer at this point.

    Really,there has to be SOMEONE out there who is happy with them.

    The company was attacked by 4i2fly and we have shown that he was deceitful and now he has gone into hiding.

    The company was attacked by the administrator of FC and he too has become so very quiet.

    I believe that people aren't stupid and will realize that certain indiviuals who were leading the hunt were misleading them.

    To those that still believe the BS there is not much else we can do.

    Tommy,
    The bad guy fell you should be so happy.

    The matter seems to be closed or should I say the truth has been disclosed.
