    BTW, today got one confirmed witness, to testify that: my car did indeed go into his workshop, was being repaired by him and was in fact WORKING (referring to engine was idling and car was moving on its own).

    Can't wait to submit my claim, but am a little occupied at the moment.

    Hey buddy. Have you tried sending the mechanic a formal letter of demand before? These can be issued by any law firm for under RM100. Sometimes these work - it scares them by making it known that you're dead serious about pursuing a claim against them.

    What rpmnut says might be workable. But since you posted earlier that he knows where your ride is being repaired for the electrical damage, and might go berserk again, I'd say hide the car elsewhere and bring the wireman to where the car is kept to work on it, and then send him back. Now this will incur more time on your side, or perhaps more cash involved [ as you might hafta get a cabbie to pick him up and send him on a stipulated time daily ], but yout car would be safe [ if the wireman doesn't spill da beans to the workshop ] and you proceed to the Tribunal at the same time. But if I'm not mistaken, the person accused can also ask for for a re- hearing of the case, I think something like a appeal to either drop the case entirely or reduce the payment / charges.

    not yet. Actually, he is well aware that i am DEAD serious and he is up for a rough ride. He is a stubborn type, one that you need to f**k from behind if you know what i mean.

    As for hiding my car and all, there is no need for that, it is safe and sound. But i don't mind if he comes and does something stupid, only dragging himself into more trouble if you ask me.

    I was recently advised by my lawyer, that act of cutting wires intentionally, is considered sabotage, which is a criminal offence and with some persuasion at police station, there is a chance that action will be taken against him. Once i am done with consumer tribunal, if i am sill in a mood to continue, that would be my next step.

    So far, i've been receiving immense support from various people, not one asked me to drop the case, quiet the opposite, encouraging to f**k him and f**k him hard! :top: I say, lets do just that and see what happens!!!

    Latest update:

    First case has been lodged and so far looks very promising, having 2nd and last hearing on 15 November.

    My second case, referring to BMW 740il, will be submitted very soon. Will keep you guys up to date once i get my judgement.

    Actual process doesn't take long (about 1 month) and only cost you RM5, so if you feel you got cheated by someone, pls, do not hesitate, write a letter to consumer tribunal, they are likely to help you.

    Greetings ladies and gents...

    As you know it, yesterday was the day of first hearing for BMW case.

    Mechanic was there, but was not representing himself, he just happen to appoint a "manager" at his workshop who just happen to be something very similar toa lawyer, as he himself said, legall trained

    That "manager" wrote reply to accusations which was only submitted on the day of hearing (looks like someone is desperate and playing dirty already).

    Defendent has claiimed the following: he was not appointed to do BMW as there was no agreement, he takes no responsibility over the vehicle, defendent did not purchase the engine, but the engine was purchased by the claimant thus paperwork need not to be provided by the defendent and that claimant was modifying his own car by himself, workshop space and tools were borrowed to claimant to do the work and that NO MONEY were taken from the claimant.

    Basically, they deny everything.

    So, what do you reccon?

    What sort of conclusions can we draw about such mechanics?

    Tribunal did not dismiss the case, instead was referred to the Civil Court.


    p.s. fellows, if this is not a great learning curve, i don't know what is, take notes and make sure you don't end up in same shit.

    very interesting story...but u must realise that u need hard evidence to win this....if there is no clear paper trail...he will be able to deny everything and get away with it.....i too have workshop owner friends...but when it comes to payments don't muck around...keep it professional and always get a receipt. m sure u know this now. in fact i did my engine conversion and alot of other work to my bmw about 2years ago and until today i've only settled 20% of the full amount....until today when i go and see my mech, he takes me for lunch and talks nothing of the money owed...in fact im the one that has to keep reminding him.....thats more or less the type of character u'd consider a friend....but u'd never know for sure how things will turn out so don't take chances...i'd advise u to drop ur case and move on...because i think u'd have to cover their legal fees if u lose and i think u there's a good chance u will due to insuffient evidence....dont lose more money over this.
