    I know a lot of you look at Siena has an alright guy but the fact is he is not.

    I have been a friend with him since arranging for his B5 A4 to be converted in to a RS4 body A4, not to mention the great deal on the cost to have it done where I had mine done.


    Now my problem started after my car was stolen and trashed and I decided to break my car up and he wanted a whole load of parts that he needed for his V8 conversion.

    RS4 uprights with drive shafts
    B5 RS4 front brakes
    Steering rack
    RS4 carbon trim

    I also had a set of B7 RS4 disc drop off to him to see if a so called engineer could replicate them.

    Anyways things started going wrong when I gave him a set of A8 Sport rims to sell on but was advised the deal did not happen but he would try and sell them to someone else which I agreed to. To cut a long story short he sold the wheels in April and when I had someone who wanted to swap them in June for a set of B7 RS4 reps Siena advised me he sold them two day prior, this is now July mind you. Well a few days later someone posted up on Audi-sport.net that he had bought some A8 Sport rim and fitted them which sent alarm bells off because A8 Sport rims are rare so I PM'd the guy only to be told he bought them in April from Siena.

    I called him out and he denied it first of all till I told him I know when he sold them and he had to come clean trying to say he forgot when he sold them.

    Since then I have tried to get the money he owes me which is around $800 plus other parts he did not want although he’s keeping the rack and upright plus brakes as they are now on his car but he has arranged numerous of time to drop the other parts off and pay me but till this date no joy to date and last week I gave him a dead line of Friday and he has made no contact.

    A lot of these info can be proved with emails and PM's plus I like to think my reputation on here and other forums will be enough for most of you to know I do not call people out for nothing.

    If you are dealing with Siena I wish you luck.

    Mate I have given Siena months to pay up and I even CC in a Mod on some of the PM's trying to sort this but to no avail.

    I do not like hanging my dirty washing out for the public to see but I have not been left with any other option and hope this will shame him.

    Hey fairs fair, you tried, so if its true then I think you have the right to advise us all.

    I would like to see his side aswell though, as I remember a while ago someone did this to him & it turned out it wasnt his fault at all, he conducted himself honourably as such, I'm sure was him anyway.

    He'd be rather stupid to have pissed in his own garden aswell huh, very stupid if its true.

    Lets not bring the 2 situations together, I think at the time it would appear Siena was right, so lets not use that situation as a reason to judge, from what I recall he was infact in the right that time, this time it appears different, but I welcome his input as seems kinda out of character for him TBH, not saying its untrue, but hopefully he'll comment.

    Just cause he hasnt been on for a while, doenst mean he's ripping anyone of, he has been on, given he's sticking a V8 in for another member Paul iirc, lets not speculate until we have his words.

    Remember he's helped a fair number of us for free so benefit of the doubt would be nice atm, think would be only fair until he gets a word in.

    I have deleted the recent post due to the fact it indeed isnt a witch hunt. I do not think it appropriate for his address to be on here. For those who need it, there are other ways to obtain it. I don't want this thread becoming personal or I will close it. Thank you.

    its not a witch hunt, but dont think think it would be prudent that people are aware if someone is ripping other people off?

    i saw the link and especially after the headlights issue i wouldnt be pointing others in that direction for vag bits.

    if there are issues, burying your head in the sand really isnt the best way to sort things out

    The other thread shows a clear indication of what’s been going on with Siena and his company Delta VAG or is it Delta Performance now!!!


    Either way it shows and vindicates myself that he has been ripping off the Audi community world wide and we should be protecting our members.

    I am aware of the problems and yes they should be brought up so people can make there own mind up etc, however posting sienas personal address on here is NOT acceptable. Nor is a user name of DONT BUY FROM DELTA VAG.
    I am far from "burying my head in the sand" quite the opposite infact as we are allowing this thread to run.

    The problems need to be addressed, however witch hunting is a no no.
    Thanks

    Un fortunately, your not the only one who he's not being straight with

    http://forums.twobrutal.com/showthread.php?t=15894

    I tried to buy a flywheel off ebay, showing stock of 8 units, ordered it with a 3 week delivery, nothing turns up.

    Email him, apparently theres been a fire and the loss adjusters are in, but it will be with you next week, two weeks later still nothing, fortunately paid by paypal, so got the cash back and left him suitable feedback.

    Also a mate of mine Steve who lives in Colchester, not far from the *****'s lair, tried to buy a 10 bolt flywheel, phoned him up, Sienna said he ahd stock and how would he like to pay, Steve said by cash and would like to collect from his house. Sienna said he'd double check stock and call him back, guess what, never called back and doesnt answer his phone calls.

    Not the type of guy you want to do businesss with in my opinion. !

    Anyway, anyone that needs a V8 flywheel 10 bolt, I'm getting them machined up myself on a two week lead-time !

    and i thought i was bad in the mornings! what i meant was, from the links i saw, it appears problems crop up with a transaction/sale and delta vag just goes quiet.

    id bet siena doesnt comment at all in this thread, based upon what i read in those links

    Hey Dan I have no issue with anyone speaking up, as you say free speech but by no means free country anymore slim, but as already said by a mod, it seemed like a witch hunt to me, so no offense, I just thought it was unfair until he commented on the subject.

    I am 100% behind all of you if he has been ripping the rse out of many people as thats just ridiculous & one thing I despise big time, but be nice to hear from him on the subject.

    Also though by the reports coming to light it would appear he's been a bit of a twxt though if the said Delta Vag Ltd is infact him, it could be someone with a grudge overall, but likeliness of that atm is slim as no word from him either.

    Oh dear oh dear, if its him then he's a few words I'd get banned for, morals & conscience are not apparent in todays world if you ask me, for someone I had respect for this has been a real shame.

    Yeah trust me had some close friends I once called brothers hit me for a few dollars, actually it was not a few atall but thats another story, really pees me of reading these things cause over the course of the future, he's possibly lost more than he's gained interms of future revenue earnings from his what was good name & workmanship, why piss in your own garden, I never see the sense of this everytime I read/see it, cause it only makes your life hell & it always catches up with you one way or another.

    Been there done that but I alway hope that when I meet someone that they can be trusted but from time to time you get bitten and then you get your wake up call.

    There are a few good reasons / plausible explanations for why it could be happening, but ideally the person responsible needs to take responsibility and sort it out before his name is even more mud.

    Something similar happened to a mate of mine a few years back, had a problem with one or two transactions and due to some personal stuff that was happening in his life at the time, he chose to stick his head in the sand, and then it was too late. Name: mud.

    Damn shame: I've been reading a thread or two and the man has got some seriously impressive skills.

    Technical skills are A1 in my books and I will not say otherwise even if I do think he started running with the V8 project before he could walk but he stepped over the line that should not be crossed.

    IT WAS ME THAT POSTED THAT INFORMATION UP.

    (1) I WAS GOING TO KEEP MYSELF ANNONOMOUS TO STOP THE "THIS IS GETTING PERSONAL" COMMENTS FROM THE MODS.

    (2) I DID NOT WANT IT TO LOOK LIKE I WAS GANGING UP WITH OTHER FORUM MEMBERS DUE TO PAST ISSUES I HAVE HAD WITH SIENA.

    (3) FROM THE INSTANT THIS THREAD WAS POSTED PEOPLE WAS BACKING SIENA UP AND IN NOT SO MANY WORDS IMPLYING THAT THE TRUTH IS BEING AVOIDED BY DOC AND THERE IS A FEASIBLE REASON AS TO WHY MR DELTAVAG HAS DONE WHAT HES DONE. BEEN THERE, DONE THAT ABOUT 18 MONTHS AGO WHEN SUCH ACCUSATIONS WERE BROUGHT UP BY ME BACK THEN. THEY WERE THEN OVER LOOKED AND I WAS MAD OUT TO BE THE BAD MAN.

    (4) IM PROBERBLY GOING TO BE BANNED NOW WHICH IS A SHAME AS I HAVE ONLY JUST GOT A B5 AGAIN BUT I WILL NOT SIT BACK AND LET PEOPLE GET RIPPED OFF BY THE SAME MAN THAT DONE IT TO ME. hE IS VERY CLEVER IN THE WAY HE WORKS. HE ERNS YOUR TRUST WITH HIS VAST KNOWLAGE AND KINDNESS AND THEN BENDS YOU OVER, WHILST HE GETS AWAY WITH IT AS EVERY ONE THINKS HES A STAR.

    (5) AS FOR POSTING HIS ADDRESS UP. HE IS OBVIOUSLY NOT AS CLEVER AS HE SEEMS AS HE MADE 1 VITAL MISTAKE. wHEN YOU REGISTER A WEBSITE/DOMAIN YOU PUT IN YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS. BEFORE YOU SUMIT, THERE IS AN OPTION CALLED "WHOIS OPT OUT". THIS IS BASICLY TO ALLOW YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO BE AVALIABLE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC. THIS OPTION HE ALLOWED FOR ALL US TO SEE. THERFOR ME POSTING UP HIS ADDRESS I SEE I DONE NO WRONG.

    (6) I AM SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING PEOPLE RIPPED OFF MY CON MEN. IT HAPPEND TO ME ON HERE BY THE SAME MAN IN QUESTION AFTER I HELPED HIM GET HIS WESITE UP AND RUNNING, IT HAPPEND TO ME ON THE SCOOBY FORUM I WAS ON, ITS HAPPEND TO PLENTY OF PEOPLE I KNOW. PEOPLE WHO CON US NICE GENUINE ENTHUSIASTS DESERVE TO BE EXPOSED NO MATTER WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE TO OTHERS. THE PROOF IS THERE, THERE ARE NO EXCUSES!

    IM NOW GOING TO SIT BACK AND WAIT TO BE BANNED. HOPE I DONT AS I FEEL IM JUST HELPING YOU ALL OUT. FACT IS, SOME PLACES DONT ALLOW THE TRUTH AS IT MAKES THERE PLACE LOOK BAD!

    PEACE!

    I hope you get it resolved Doc as I've kinda respected the advice and views from both you guy's over the years i've been a member.

    Its pretty natural for the guys on the forum to form their own opinion's when they dont hear from the other party but lets just hope its for an EXPLAINABLE reason.

    Alpine: A Whois Optout is only available if you register the domain via nominet who manage ".uk" domains only, and its only available for private individuals.

    If you want to register a .com without your personal details being shown, you need to pay some company to register it in their name, therefore hiding the details for you, and that costs a bit of cash.

    He is trading as a limited company and as such information like his address is in effect in the Public Domain. A simple search on Companies House will provide the same data, and its also published on his website.

    I dont think you did anything wrong, and its certainly not a bannable offence in my opinion.
