Default Kerma tdi?

I could use some info on using Kerma tdi. I have read horrible things about them and would like some personal experience opinions before I give them my hard earned money.

No personal experience with Kerma, but do a search and see what others here have posted

Check the cyber bullying article apparently the sites and reviews are fake from some Russian websites. They are trying to get money to take them down. One of the posts is the owner of tdi club which is pretty clearly fake.

Got my injector nozzles from him, he was really helpful especially with the posting etc with me being in the UK.

I think you'll probably find complaints about every vendor, I mean look at some of the idiots you come across in life lol and they buy stuff from vendors too.

I'm very satisfied with my Kerma tune. Got it in 2008. I think there are more tuners out there today but at the time Kerma was the only tuner that had the option to purchase the tune with an OBDII programmer--that way you can revert to the original tune and you get tune updates via email. I did not want to have to remove and ship the ECU for the tune.

In fact I just recently received an email from Kerma stating that they had learned more about the BEW and an update was available--I had not even requested--I was impressed. When I upgrade my turbo, I will use Kerma.

Ordered my parts and had them a day later... can't beat that... nor could I beat the price.

I am happy with them.

I have had no issues with Kerma. Getting parts and gear from them is great! Especially nozzles. Their hot swap program is awesome. Some people have issues with their higher end tunes from Kerma. I have also heard of issues getting updated or additional tuning. But otherwise they have great service!

I ordered SKS front wheel bearings and got Hudson bearings instead. I called and complained and he gave me a refund that very day. I think they're good folks to deal with.
