Default CFI Designs or CFI Disappointing...

So this is a post Iíd rather not be writing but right now I donít have many options.

Hereís my story:-

Back in 2015 I wanted a Twin Turbo conversion for my 08 superleggera. After speaking to many vendors and being referred to Kyle at CFI Designs I decided to go ahead with him. Iím based in the Middle East to make matters more interesting. My build sheet came to $109k, I initially paid $20k as a deposit with the rest to follow as and when. I paid another $40k in 2016. At this point itís worth noting that no work had Been carried out.

Late 2016 into mid 2017 I had issues with my own business which prevented me moving forward with the build.

I spoke to Kyle and explained this to him and he said he would try to find someone to take over my build, I said ok. At least that way I could recoup my initial payment or even the majority of it. Nothing happened.

I posted an ad in the parts section on here to see if anyone would take it over. Kyle requested that I take the ad down to which I did.

Now into 2018 things are looking slightly more positive or so I thought.

Iím $60k into the pocket of CFI//Kyle and no further forward. This is where it gets worse; financially for now I canít go any further forward with my project.

Also I have a friend who needs an engine for his TT gallardo after blowing his up. We contacted Kyle numerous times after he said it would be no problem to use part of the $60k Iíd already paid towards an engine for my friend.

At least then I can get some cash back and when I can, continue my project with the remainder balance.

This was the idea.


Now Kyle doesnít communicate or reply to any calls, messages or emails. Both myself and my friend have called and messaged him many times. If we are lucky enough to reach him he says that he will email us and nothing ever comes.

Iím still hopeful that something can be worked out.

On a side note I think the work he actually does is great and I canít fault what Iíve seen....at least from photos.

Now would you just write off $60k?

Possibly the money was spent and parts were never ordered.

I agree, when they stop responding theyíre done with you. The only thing that will get a reaction now is a legal letter from an attorney. The longer you wait the worse it gets. Donít let them pacify you with BS, they have no intention of giving you anything at this point. It seems because of your distance from them they think they can just ignore you. Good luck.

Yes, it seems that happens most often with customers that are far away from the business. Lawyer up and don't wait, time is against you right now.

There's a "Bad dealer/vendor" thread around somewhere. I would suggest posting your story there. Hopefully it saves someone from a lot of headache. I hope everything turns out alright for you! I agree with lawyering up as mentioned above

Omar:-

Explain how I have a nerve to complain that a vendor has been paid $60k and done nothing. Now wonít return any calls, messages or anything.

You complained on here about me and all is fair.

Your $4k was paid back to paypal after your cc filed a chargeback with them. Paypal told me you were refunded. It was an unfortunate event.

If you read what I wrote, I never made any mention of my business doing well.
