I wanted them to install my car dash cam while I watch them, they refused and said for safety and insurance purposes they won't let me.

There is NO WAY I would leave my car anywhere without me being there, you never know what someone can do to your car without you being there.

If they have nothing to hide then they would have let me be there, and made me sign some waivers in regards to the insurance or whatever BS purpose.
They install a dash camera on my car and i wouldn't hesitate to go back again.
You sit in the waiting area while they install it on the car.
Even when you bring your car into dealership for repair etc you cant stand beside the mechanic working on the car.

Another +1 for Lockdown Security. They'll be doing another install for me next week.

You signed up, and your first post is this? Quite ridiculous. If this is your mentality going into an automotive facility, probably best they don't serve you.

Lockdown Security is highly regarded in the RFD community. If you choose not to believe that, that's on you.

dude have you been to their store? you can peek through the window the watch them install the cam. if you think everyone's review is fake then you can look at mine. I did have some issues with the installation when i got there. the guys suddenly changed the installation price on me but good thing i had an email from Jeff stating the price. Now i still have an issue with the start/stop function in my car. the camera is draining too much battery while parked. i guess i don't drive it long enough. Will wait until i get back from vacation to install the battery. even though there were issues, they do ty their best to fix it. Overall their customer services are very good, reply emails fast and will try to help you when you have issues. i purchased a think ware F770 from them and had them install it. And i saw them install while in the waiting room.

Yes I can because I choose the mechanic that allows me to, you would be stupid if you trust someone with your Ferrari.

So are you saying a user may NOT signup and post at RedFlagDeals.com if their first post is a complaint review of a business? I will screenshot and quote what you said on my story that I'll post on a few other sites.

Way too professional WorldIRC a moderator @ RedFlagDeals.com, this whole post was captured incase you try to delete and hide anything.

I think it's more about a new account signing up to accuse longtime users with many thousands of posts of shilling for a company. Your very first words were "these guys were most likely asked by lockdownsecurity to post them". I don't see how you don't see this as ironic, since surely the person with no posting history is the one whose motivations are unknown.

If I ran a shop and you had this kind of attitude, i'd tell you to take your business someplace else.

Do you also ask to go to the kitchen of a McDonald's to watch them prepare your burger, too?

"...I will screenshot and quote what you said on my story that I'll post on a few other sites"

Good luck with that.

No understanding of how a forum works. Start by patronizing long time members, feels entitled to change a business' standard conduct. Don't like it, go elsewhere. Nobody is going to sympathize with the way you present yourself.

I forgot to post a "screenshot" of the PM I was sent yesterday evening. The subject header is creepy. Again, no secrets, I just want all the information to be here for when RFD gets their public bashing on another website.

what's a good back and front cam for $200 to 300. reliability is more important than video quality. maybe something with warranty.

Look at their client portfolio, they've done Ferrari's, Lambo's, R8 and other exotic cars. i guess all those owners of those cars are "stupid" as you claim
