    BimmerPost forcing Shift-S3ctor to not allow BimmerBoost to sponsor their event

    So, I e-mailed Shift-S3ctor about becoming a sponsor for their event and they said sure and sent me the information on sponsoring. I said I was willing to sponsor and then received no response. I sent another e-mail today asking if they read over my e-mail where I said I would sponsor and I received this:

    Dear Joseph,

    I'm sorry for the delay in my response. A situation has arisen in which there is a conflict of interest with one of our other confirmed sponsors, Bimmerpost. They sponsor our events and our website thus we can't allow you to sponsor the event. Having said that, keep in touch with me about your car and I will do anything I can to save you a spot until the event sells out. Sorry for the confusion and hope to see you there.

    Best Regards,

    Jason Huang


    WTF? I just got this from him yesterday:

    forgot the attachment, here it is.

    Best Regards,

    I get the attachment, look it over, and say sure I want to sponsor. No response so then this exchange takes place after I send another e-mail:

    Yes, I will definitely run my car as they told me it will be done in time. So, no need to save a spot.

This is changing from day to day as we receive payments from sponsors. In regards to forum sponsors, after discussing with partners and sponsors, it was concluded that 1 forum sponsor is all we will take. The same can be said for drink sponsors, we are only accepting one, we have a limit to 2 clothing sponsors, etc... Bimmerpost takes priority because they have been sponsoring a number of events. We would be glad to have you participate, but at this time, we aren't taking any more forum sponsors... this isn't just your forum, we aren't taking any other forum sponsors at this time.

    Best Regards,

    Jason Huang

    You are saying several different things. Your first response said it was due to Bimmerpost. Then you said it was a group decision. Now you say it is only one forum sponsor. Which is it? I can serve as a blog then and not a forum.

    I’ve never heard of anyone limiting sponsors and you do not say anything of the sort on the page for the event. It took a third e-mail before I got this version. I am being singled out personally for some reason. I have no choice but to make this issue known on my forums and with my vendors as well as potential attendees.

    It’s unfortunate you are letting politics dictate what should happen at an event for enthusiasts and are are stifling me specifically. I do not know you and was attempting to support your event. I’m very disappointed.

    It's absolute bull$#@! man. The guy is now sort of doing an about face but we'll see what happens. I should have a response tomorrow:

    I will talk to the 2 other partners tonight and Jason from Bimmerpost. Yes, it's our final decision, but I'm not in this to piss off existing sponsors, I'm sure as an owner of a forum you know that's important. If they are fine with it, I'm totally for it. I want to see your car run, and I have no problem with having you sponsor the event. I will let you know tonight, or tomorrow morning. I think without having to guarantee a physical spot, it's a fair proposition which I have to say was my idea (so you know I'm not singling you out or trying to keep you from participating). You will still get website space with a link to your forum, you will still be on the tshirt, and you will still get blasted on in the media via facebook and be placed on the posters etc. Since you are a man of details, I will let you know, that all sponsors will stay on our website from Sept 10th, until the end of this year. If you sponsor another event, or pay to sponsor on our website, you will remain on the website. I'll be in touch.


    Best Regards,


    Jason Huang


    I don't get why Bimmerpost has influence with this as they are in New York. Time to start our own event and compete?

    If it's war they want, war they shall have:

    Dear Joseph,


    I just got out of a meeting discussing this potential sponsorship. We appreciate your offer to support the event, but unfortunately at this time, we are unable to accommodate any more forum sponsors. Shift-S3ctor reserves the right to pick which sponsors we want to use to fill the limited spots we have and, at this time, those spots have been reserved for other sponsors. I personally feel bad for not having all my facts together before sending you the proposal. It's been hectic, and we have had many sponsor inquiries, so I apologize for that. You are still welcome to register your vehicle and participate if you choose to.


    Best Regards,


    Jason Huang

    HAHAHAHAHA! I would totally do this if I were going.

    Seriously though, at least they were professional and courteous in their emails to you. If they don't want you; $#@! them. That is my opinion.

    Oh I will $#@! them. I love that I have the admin Jason's and Bimmerpost's panties in such a twist they freak out over me sponsoring an event.

    I'll show up with one of those billboard trucks with my name on the side, a blowhorn, and strippers.

    Bimmerpost has more people on it, shift sector wants the publicity on bimmerpost. They are probably afraid Jason won't front page if they allow you to sponsor. Makes sense from a business perspective I guess, but I would not be pushed around by sponsors.

    Forum draaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaama.

    We have vendors who sponsor both. They could easily tell Jason he doesn't make the rules. It's kind of pathetic really.

    True. You are in their head.

    ROFL @ billboard truck. You should have someone do a cheesy logo of bimmerboost peeing on bimmerpost...like you see on Chevy's and Fords...either that or your forum teabaging their forum - I like teabags better; more humiliation. I would rather be peed on then teabagged personally.

    I'm not going to let them monopolize everything. They haven't been able to stop us yet and I sure as hell won't let them now.

    You should call the highway patrol and smog referees and have them set up a sting operation to make sure all cars have proper smog equipment and aren't too loud. That will shut the event down in a hurry! Click here to enlarge

    I've thought about being a jerk about it and fighting fire with fire but I think it may be best to show up and simply annihilate all the Bimmerpost cars while laughing and then putting it on my front page.
