uni chip dealers

Could anybody from aps please let me know why APS not being a so called retail outlet are fitting and tuning so many uni chips to people here on the forums.if i was still a uni chip dealer i would be not be very happy as to be a dealer you must pay a very large fee to be a dealer.it was my understanding when i was a dealer that aps would not do retail work fiting uni chips.one of the main reasons for us not being an agent is because dealing with aps you find that it is a one way street and it only goes there way.advertising in magazines only lists aps not there dealers and the dealers are told that all enquires will be passed onto them, reading all of these posts it appears that that is no so.all of the melbourne dealers are being done out of the work that is supposed to be sent to them.as a non dealer and knowing the rules i find this very hard to understand as i once spent money to be a dealer.

Rob, How are you? Here's the info you requested though not sure why it's a concern for you in any event as you're not a Unichip dealer.

1) APS has always installed and tuned Unichips and will continue to do so as APS is a tuning business and we need to keep up with latest model cars in order to assist the Unichip dealer Network.

2) We Normally Unichip and tune 40 to 50 cars a month, nothing to speak of really as there are thousands of cars on the road for Unichip dealers to tune.

3) Not sure where you understanding came from though it's certainly wrong, APS will always dyno tune and install Unichip computers for both retail and trade customers.

4) Many dealers in Melbourne do heaps of Unichip work and tuning in fact one of the bigger Unichip dealers is located within 3 kms of APS and he has no concern with APS installing and tuning Unichips so why should you have any concern?

5) APS has tuned many Ford cars (GT's and GT-P's) for FF members because of the the many customer referrals we receive and the fact that we have retuned and sorted out a number of GT cars that have been tuned elsewhere, Rob it's a free world and people can come directly to APS if they wish. I believe that Many FF members also know that APS has the best and most up to date tuning facility and equipment in melbourne and that APS has 20 years of experience in tuning most types of engine management, and that we always go the extra yard to achieve the best possible result for the customer.

Regards

Peter

its not about protecting anybody its more about telling the facts as it is, it easy to critercise other's & its plain to see that you are not fond of the A.P.S. product just as its easy to see that i am

its no secret that i have a Unichip on my Ute & that i am very happy with it, if you can spare the time do a search & you will see that in the begining i gave it a good bagging just like you tend to do now

you will find that i was actually going to fit an X-ede to my car & after a few heated open discussions with Peter i actually issued him a challenge to fit a Unichip to my car to see if it was as good as he said, prices we discussed & a time was aranged & now the rest is history

what is your history with the Unichip, have you had a bad experiance with it or an A.P.S. Product or are you baseing your judgement on what you have read from others

regards
rod

Re: uni chip dealers

Rob I have a unichip installed by APS and I am glad that I have the option of choosing to have them install it and tune it. I have done so because when I met Peter and was shown around the place and met his team I chose them because I felt comfortable with them.

I have also met and had discussions with other Unichip dealers who I also have faith in and I would have no hesitation in having work done by them on any future cars I have. I have met these dealers through APS directly and so they will benifit from having been introduced to me by APS in the future.

So to me the consumer, it seems like a two way street. If Peter wanted to, I am sure he could open up a bigger workshop and install exclusively in Victoria.

Now I am not a dealer so I am not aware of the fees involved in being one. But the good thing is you have the choice not to and you have decided for your own reasons not to be an agent anymore and thats cool.

Rob you have been great for the Ford fans of the world with your outfit being at the leading edge of aftermarket go fast bits for many years and you will be for many years to come. But if current agents of unichip have issues with the way APS conducts their operation I am sure they will take it up with Peter in a more discreet manner than an open question on a public forum.

Re: uni chip dealers

not trying to cause any trouble here it is just the fact of reading so many people talking about uni chip and all seem to be having them fitted at aps,if my thoughts were wrong i apoligise but it just looks to me that the other melbourne dealers are not getting a fair go .,
