Default Current state and the future of Status Gruppe

First off thank you to everyone who has supported us over the years. As many of you who know me personally that Status Gruppe is my passion and I put everything into it. With that said I realize we have had a lot of internal problems over the last 6-12 months. Some out of our control and some that are not. We are working to fix all and get back to where we once were.
I also want you guys to know we are still making new products and have redesigned some to be a better product. Our quality has never suffered and wonít. We are also working with better factory to start getting our lead times down and even lower prices.
There is a lot of other products out there that may look similar but our products are all pre-fit or fully made in the USA and we will actually help if you have issues.

We have gotten a little lost and are definitely not who we were when we started in this market and but I promise we will be be better than before really soon.

Needed to get that off my chest. itís been a eye opening couple of months and itís really been bothering me not being realizing the problems.

Well golly that is refreshing to hear.

This have to do with you guys selling csl bumpers that you’ve been claiming are yours but in reality are just really shitty Chinese AIT bumpers with a 250% surcharge?

Thanks again on putting my engine in especially it was such a short time. I'll come back to you guys for the supercharger kit when I get off deployment next year.

That's simply not true, SGT bumpers don't have the chimp-munk issue as the rest of the EBAY spec bumpers do which actually proves that their stuff is made for them.

Sure the same company could be selling the lower tier product cheaper too.

Ya, if the bumper from AIT is different than the one SGT asks AIT to make for them, then it's a non starter.

I think it would help to sell me the delicious csl door panels for like 50-75% off. The want is strong.

It's nice to see someone owning a problem, SGT has been great to this forum for years and unfortunately you had a bad spell that tarnished your image. But I respect that you were able to own the shortcomings over the last year and you're looking to correct the matters. Thanks much for all the great products and I'm hoping you're able to work out all the issues you've noted.

I have purchased several items from you and received them in a short time frame. Youíre customer service was great as well. It was disheartening to see guys having issues on shipping times and getting upset.

Thatís respectable seeing thereís an issue and owning up to it. Good luck moving forward.

My SGT SCZA muffler from original batch is still holding up strong.

Glad to hear you're changing what's wrong to go back in the right direction. Lower prices is always good too!
