      Well, the charger came with no warranty due to the smaller pulley, however, the guys at BBM were willing to check my charger out when I noticed and oil leak about 2 weeks after installing. So far still dont know where the oil leak is coming from, but they made no issues about checking it out for me, even though it technically didn't come with a warranty. These guys are AWESOME, don't hesitate to do business with them!

      Had my supercharger rebuild by Bahn Brenner in Aug 2004.
      Turnaround time was about one week.
      Had the standard rebuilt done with some machining on the outlet.
      No repairs done at this time. Just excellent work by them.
      I am very happy with the service, quality of materials and workmanship.
      Customer service was excellent
      Much improved performance from the G60.
      It has been well over the warranty and have not had any problems with the system. It just runs and runs.
      Overall rating would be a 10 for quality of work.
      Custome service would be a 10.
      Great job by all at Bahn Brenner. Thank you.

      2 even though the person i spoke with had only worked there a matter of weeks he was very knowledgeable and helpful
      3 cant tell the car was in such bad shape when i picked it up ie really badly leaking boost tubes, hole in piston etc. The charger looked pretty good however.
      4No warranty at all. Although they did say if anything broke they were responsible for they would take care of it.

      Just got my G-60 going after having an oem spec rebuild by Bahn Brenner. So far-so good seems to be pumping some good psi. Good customer service, as soon as they got it they inspected it and called me. I got it back 6 buisness days after I sent it [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] overall 9.5, -.5 because when I got the pakage back the charger was faced pulley down and resting against the bottom of the box, if it had been dropped it would've landed directly on the pulley... otherwise great expeience with BBM, thanks guys, and keep up the good work! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      UPDATE...I now have 10k miles on my charger and now only boosts 5psi, i have a fresh motor rebuild with good compression and no boost leaks!

      Not good, you might need a new charger
      We did this build in early 2004
      Just for the record the g-lader can be an unreliable unit when over driven with a power pulley even if brand new or newly rebuilt.
      I'll talk to you soon.
      Sorry to see that your charger is in this condition.

      Let's just say I have a few.

      Rebuild Services:
      1) Who did you send your charger to for a rebuild? Kompressor Kanada
      2) What was the turnaround time? i.e., how many days from when you sent it out did you get it back? Less than 2 weeks
      3) What rebuild services did you have performed? Stage 4
      4) Were any repairs needed at the time of rebuild, such as apex strip groove repairs? not that I remember
      Customer Satisfaction:
      1) In General, are you happy with the quality of materials/workmanship? Oh yeah
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service? YES
      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades? The stage 4 delivers more than I expected it to.
      4) Did the rebuild come with a warranty? If so, have you had to return the charger for warranty work? Yes, it came with a warranty and thankfully I haven't had a need for it.

      just thought i'd post up here.
      i didnt actually get my 'charger "rebuilt" but i bought it off ebay and the PO said it was rebuilt a few hundred miles ago, already had RSR stage IV porting so i had the gt70 porting done as well.
      took 3 weeks including shipping time from SE tennessee to his facility in oregon, they took it apart and recommended the tune up and the bearings looked great so i went along with this. got it back and it took me almost a month to break it in properly (500 miles with little to no boost, i only hit 2-3 psi towards the end of the break in once or twice, and i never went over 3k rpms). been almost a thousand miles since i got it back with no issues. shes really quiet and boosts slightly low but im guessing i have a few small boost leaks to chase down. no oil leaks and i will be sending it back in a year for another inspection and probably a tune up and belt.
      thanks john! (charger went to BBM by the way)

      Update 10/27/08 Due to a small oil leak BBM paid for shipping both ways, replaced oil seal free of charge, and had it back to me within days.

      Any thoughts on OEM vs OE spec rebuild (already decided on BBM)? I'm all about keeping originality, but, does it really matter?

      Ok, so the OEM VAG Goetze oil seals are a little tougher, stiffer or better material and better geometry. From what I have seen I believe that they do last longer and they are after all true OEM... so they cost more. Thank you for your business

      ...Please post in this thread to allow others to know about your experiences, good or bad, with rebuilders you've worked with...

      I sent off my KK Stg IV to be inspected to 'da crew at BBM. A place you just feel there is a real sense of teamwork and pride. And I was gladly confirmed of my intuition!
      March 19th
      My KK Stg IV arrives at the BBM workshop to have Mark view and diagnose the blower. Not good, displacer has bits missing out of it and the apex was definitely not going well. I guess this is the reason for the 7.5 psi on my gauge? Missing bits was allowing the air to whisp past and then the apex was being spit out in pieces making the displacer useless. I spoke up, "I have the original g-lader from the car, can we use that?" Mark said we would need to know what generation it is and go from there. It was a match! They are going to combine with best parts and upgraded parts into a single unit.
      The Mark helped me feel very confident in his knowledge as well as the history BBM carries in the field, not talking over anyone's head and being straight forward to me, courteous and informative.
      I know with the attitude and positive communications like this, BBM is the correct choice to have my blower taken! BBM is off to a very, very good start in my book.

      not very happy as the charger blew an oil seal the first second it hit boost....the paint was nice
      2) Are you happy with the rebuilder's customer service?sure dave is fun to talk to
      3) Was there an improvement in charger performance (i.e. boost level) as a result of the rebuild, or as a result of the performance upgrades? no

      charger was returned 4 or 5 times each time it blew an oil seal within minutes of it hitting boost dave finally stopped warrantying it and blamed motorteknik for installing the wrong size seal(even though the charger was running great before he touched it)
