Proof positive they lied to you.
There is nothing more despicable than a mechanic who did not even touch your car.

It's time to post this on the Yelp page.
You can post photos.

"Here are photos of the valve covers. Do they look resurfaced?
Owner lied about doing work he never performed. Despicable"

Also, make a note that all the positive reviews are for Bill, who has left the company to scammers.

Quick update. First BAR compliance officer was mysteriously taken off the job after visiting Pasadena Air-cooled and replaced, second has completed his investigation. I will be able to get a copy soon. Essentially he was found to not be registered with the BAR. He did not provide me with a written estimate, he did not obtain proper authorizations, I am sure there’s more. Curt was encouraged to give my money back and he offered $1300 through the officer of which I declined. Even if he had accepted my 1700 proposal when I went to pick up my car I would have immediately gone back to him the same day or next day to complain about the oil leaks, and key mark. I guess we shall see what a judge says

There was an additional negative review on yelp but it looks like it has since disappeared of which I figured as the person had no credibility on yelp.
oops screenshot won’t post. Does anyone know how to get a screenshot to post here on pelican?

So they just let this business keep their doors open with a suspended business license and major customer disputes? Sounds about right for a democratic state...god forbid you take their thievery livelihood away from them.

Can the political commentary. There's a forum for that crap, and this ain't it.

I don’t affiliate with either side, never have and never will. Just stating a point, as this is what tends to happen with very liberal (read loose) laws. That was my point, that’s why they are still open for business. But point well taken Mocker, I hate talking politics, especially because I don’t even claim affiliation with a party.

Not at all. You're now just inferring that I'm backing a political party from my liberal loose comment. There wasn't anything specifically political about my last comment. Stricter laws, regardless of who enacts them, make it much more difficult for this type of fraud to continue to perpetuate itself. Read into that however you want, I'm not talking or backing any political parties. I simply wish we had stronger laws that prevented these things from happening. Then they wouldn't happen. Then this shop wouldn't still be in business scamming more unsuspecting fellow Porsche owners. I'd think that's what we'd all want...

wasn't trying to pin you to either side of the political spectrum (couldn't care less), simply pointing out that you did, in fact, invoke politics. that was the source of mockers comment. a point well made as there is a forum for that.

and the last thing we need in CA is more laws. we can't enforce an enormous number of laws we have on the books already.

we need more common sense...

Neither do I, and that's what makes the back and forth shiit slinging so much fun in the "Politics and Religion" subforum in "Off Topic" (PARF) - there's always multiple targets!

I just noticed that Curt took down his response on yelp probably the first smart thing he’s done during this entire debacle.

How do the Curt’s of the world look at themselves in the mirror and justify their actions? Is $$ more important than morals, ethics and character?

Curt, if you are reading this thread – is this what you are teaching your kids?

Have you ever read a sociopath next door? It's an enlightening read.
