Better warranty can be worth paying more, but that's debatable. I just can't believe no one else is talking about this. I saw one thread on a 5er forum and it was removed within 48 hours.

I was worried about Turner a few years ago as they used to be insanely priced. They've now fallen mostly in line with fcp, ecs, etc.
So Turner (online) and BavAuto sold/liquidated to ECS Tuning.

The issue now is ECS has gotten very large in a small amount of time, and are having serious customer service and order issues. This was happening before they acquired Turner and BavAuto, but now the problem has gotten worse at least 10x.

If you're on FB, and have some time to kill; join "Why I hate ECS Tuning" group. It's pretty comical.
