Let me be the first.. I had him do some work for me modding some units I didn't have time for.. and the PREMOD customers were down his way near Nashville.. so I subcontracted the work out to him.. he did it in a timely fashion.. and my customers were impressed.
He will get my business again.

I'd like to mention that I have plenty of feedback which was first started when I began offering my modding services local and then quickly moved to a webshop.Check out my other feeback here

I'm honored to post on the first thread of this...
This guy is great. I basically knew nothing about modding when I sent him my Xbox and anytime I had a question he would always respond to me ASAP on AIM. I asked him a lot of questions and he was very patient and professional with his answers.
If your looking to buy a system or get your xbox moded I would highly reccomend doing business with this guy! His prices are more than fair and his service is excellent.

Lookformeb is a great source for modding. Excellent customer service. Lookformeb kept me informed through the entire process. I got my modded unit very quickly. I had questions regarding operation and lookformeb was very helpful. I was able to contact him by phone and had my problems resolved in no time (user error problems). This guy is very good. Would recommend him to anybody. Hope to do business with you again lookformeb. Thanks.

T H I S ___ S E L L E R___ I S___ H I G H L Y___ R E CO M M E N D E D !!!!
I have to admit I haven't bought very many things through the mail so I was a little bit nervous about buying a modded X Box. I searched the Internet sites and I noticed that this seller consistently gets excellent reviews. Well I held my breath and took the plunge and just bought a modded X Box with a 120 gb hard drive from Brian. (if I had my tax refund back I would probably have opted for an even bigger hard drive).
I can see why this seller gets such great reviews. He e-mailed me and kept me in the loop at all times. No surprises at all. Excellent service - what a very fast turn around (I live in Florida). Today my X Box arrived. It was packed well and securely and was sent by Federal Express to my door. It runs perfectly. No noise. No problems. Very professional job. Brian obviously knows what he is doing and it looks and runs just like brand new!!!!!
Brian even included a back up disk!!!! My only "problem: was that I tried to read it on my X Box and it wouldn't read. Well I soon figured out it is a computer disk to back up the E-Prom, popped it in the computer and it worked great!!!! Brian I would add a note about this to your customers because some (like me) need help figuring this out.
I would definitely do business with Brian again!!! Great prices, excellent service, packed well and shipped to my door. Most importantly he went the extra mile to always keep me in the loop between the time I sent my payment and when my X Box arrived today. Everything was in new condition. Packed securely and arrived spotless in great working order.
Incidently, he takes Pay Pal and you can pay by credit card which was a big plus for me because I don't like sending checks or cash through the mail.
I already have 2 friends who are going to order from him once they get their tax refunds. I rarely write reviews, but Brian did what he said he would do, kept me totally in the loop as to when everything was occurring and delivered a great modded X Box at a fair price. I thought I'd help him out and help anyone who wants a modded X Box by hooking them up with him.
Check out Brian at http://shop.bmforums.com/
It isn't readily apparent that he offers hard drive upgrades on his modded boxes. You have to click on the "more information" button link to figure out that he offers you larger hard drive upgrades of all sizes (10 GB/80 GB/120GB/160GB/200GB/250 GB). He throws in a free fan upgrade with those which also was a big plus for me. Highly recommended.

ps - here are parts of some e-mails Brian sent me to keep me in the loop.
"just waiting for your HDD to come in. I imagine it will be shipping on Monday,Tuesday." Then a few days later
"your order has been shipped. Your tracking number is 0457xxxxx. You can track is via http://www.FedEx.com

Had a modchip installed and significant "other work" done by Shopbmmods and results were GREAT! Speedy service, good work, personalized phone call and IM, would use him again tomorrow!
Feb 9 2004, 02:16 AM
Absolutely Excellent Seller!!!
I highly recommend this seller. He has excellent customer service. He answered all my many e-mails within hours, if not minutes, and made a last minute change to my order with no problems whatsoever.
I purchased a new modded XBox with a 120GB HD shipped to California and could not be happier. I researched everywhere and could not find a seller with as much positive feedback, period. Not to mention his prices are THE most competitive of anyone around.
If your in the market, look no further... THIS
is the place to go.

I ordered a modded XBox with 120 Gig drive. I was a little worried about ordering one as it would be my second try. I had previously ordered one from a fairly well known internet dealer from Canada. What a disaster that was. I ordered the Box on 12/22 and ended up cancelling my order 1/22.
That same night I found Brian's site on the internet. He not only had much better prices (by $100) but he had an AIM name (ShopBMMods) that you could contact him thru. After the frustration of ordering from the other company with no feedback I thought this is too good to be true. But I still wanted an XBox.
So I sent a message to him and he actually chatted with me and I ended ordering his XBox.
His service and delivery have exceeded all expectations. He kept me informed and in a few days I received my XBox. I had NO problems and am really enjoying the benefits of the modded Xbos. I mostly wanted it to use a multimedia device in my entertainment system. It works great. I am positive that if I had problems that Brian would be there to bail me out.
I have recommended him to my friends and if I should need another XBox - I wouldn't consider any other source. Brian gets 5/5 stars from me.
I only wish I had found Brian first.

: Thanks for all the great feedback beginning this thread. Hopefully it will help direct others to, what's growing to be, one of the most trusted modding services around!
Feb 11 2004, 11:42 PM
Great service, did a very slick job. Would recommend him to anyone.
Feb 13 2004, 03:02 PM
I like most people were unsure about buying a premod. Brian was extremely understanding and even answered all my stupid e-mails. He also made sure I got a samsung drive and didn't charge extra for it. (there are many out there that do). IMHO shop.bmforums.com is the best place to go for all your modding needs. I would definetly do business with him again.
Feb 13 2004, 08:07 PM
First, let me give thanks to Brian for his helpful support. He has been great resource for someone new to the scene.
Now the specifics.
I contacted Brian about 2-3 weeks in advance of sending my xbox for modding. He was responsive and friendly which made me comfortable enough to send a $300 piece of hardware (bought 11/01) through the mail. I told him that I was going to provide the hard drive and he had no issues. I finally got everything together and sent it off on a Tues (got to him on Thurs) and the turnaround time was as promised
which is very important to me.
We had some issues with FedEx, but thankfully they got the to me the following Thurs. Even though we hit a bump with shipping, Brian was there to cover answering a few frantic PMs. Ten days total (with shipping) - more than acceptable. The work was professional and my xbox came back in exactly the same condition as it left - plus a few choice additions.
Since I'm rather new to the whole modding scene, Brian has been very patient and consistent in answering my noob questions until I finally got on the right track.
I'm extremely satisfied with the whole experience and recommend Brian's services to anyone.
Feb 15 2004, 06:44 PM
Im yet another happy customer of Brians. I ordered a new premod from him and had it 4 days later.I also sent him a unit that had a bad softmod done and he fixed that in 1 day.I have to admit i was a little skeptical about sending it and getting scammed (as in anyone else would be) but i couldn't be happier.The quailty of his work and always prompt to answer my questions online are top notch.I would recommend him to anyone that needs quality work done.
Ill be doing business with him again. Thanks Brian

I stumbled onto the xbox modding scene and decided to get a premod since I have never soldered anything in my life. I searched many sites and was taken back at how much a premod with a 120 gig hd would cost. As soon as I was about to order, I came to xbox-scene and happen to find shop.bmforums.com (best prices on the net).
I was always skeptical about sending that much money to anyone but he and I talked on instant messanger for about a week before I decided to take the chance. He seemed to be an honest, stand-up guy so I sucked it up and sent away the money.
A few days later, I woke up and had an xbox beside my bed. It came a lot faster than I had expected; great delivery. Everything was as he said it would be, everything worked and I haven't had a single problem yet. If I do have a question, he isn't hesistant to give me all the help he can.
After showing my cousin my xbox, he is now ready to send his away to him for modding.
Great service, very helping and very professional. I recommend him to any and everyone who needs xbox services.
Feb 23 2004, 01:49 AM
There's not much I can add that hasn't already been said about how great Brian's services are, so I'll just confirm what others have posted in this thread and elsewhere.
Brian is an excellent person with whom to do business. Not only does he have the knowledge and experience to consistently and reliably perform these installations/repairs, but he cares about doing exactly what the buyer wants and in the shortest amount of time as possible (I received 3 personal phone calls to update me on the condition of my system and determine what exactly should be done to it). His prices are very fair and quality of service excellent.
The bottom line is that this guy is great, and if there were more people in the world who did business like him life would be a whole lot simpler. I was initially nervous about doing this type of thing through the internet and mail, but everything went very smoothly and Brian was very reassuring.
I will definitely recommend him to people for his services.
Feb 24 2004, 09:30 PM
Excellent business, shipped out my item with quickness, great communication, nuff said.

Installed my chip, super-fast turnaround... and an all around EXCELLENT guy!
Mar 1 2004, 07:10 PM
Brian installed a chip and HDD for me this past weekend. 'Quick turnaround' would be an understatement--I dropped of my box at noon, picked it up at 3:00 the same day. Great price, especially considering the quality of his work. I will definitely recommend him to my friends.
Mar 3 2004, 06:28 PM
Just got my pre mod system and I don't have one bad thing to say about it. He did really good job with packing my system for shipping. When I got it I couldn't even tell that it had been opended. This guy is great, has great prices, fast shipping, with tracking number. If you're like me and didn't wanna take a chance at messing up a system trying to mod it yourself, then this is the place for you.
Mar 6 2004, 02:24 AM
Brian is simply AWESOME. I sent him my xbox for repair and it was simply the best service I could have asked for. I live all the way in Washington state, but didnt want to send him my xbox at first because he was all the way on the other side of the country.. but you know what? It was 200% worth it. If trust is your main concern, look no further.
Brian doesnt look for a way to gouge people. He would never need to since he is probably 00ber successful with helping people the right way. If quickness is a concern, hes great at that too! He also maintained contact with me and answered all my questions promptly. He is simply the best of the best and I swear, if any of my friends ask me for purchasing xboxs, repairing, etc. He is the first on my list. Thanks again!!!
Mar 7 2004, 03:08 AM
I ordered my new xbox with 200gb from him and im really happy with it. This guy is very professional, he answered every one of my questions, and explain me in details even though i didnt know anything about flashing and stuff.
Trustworthy, fast shipping and great product. A+++ THANKS!!!
Mar 7 2004, 01:48 PM
My man is quick! Ordered a 2.3B Lite Pre-modded Xbox on Tuesday and I had it on Saturday. Everything worked fine right out of the box! Excellent work. I now see why everyone leaves such positive feedback
Brian will definitely get my business again. Thanks again!
Mar 9 2004, 01:57 AM
if you're planning on getting your existing Xbox modded or getting a brand spanking new premod, you should shop at shopbmforums
the turn-around time is outstanding
I'm not sure he (brian) had the xbox for more than a day or two, it was back to me in less than a week with an x2.3pro and a user provided HDD.
not only was the mod installed perfectly, but he was also frequently available for noob questions via IM. he was so supportive that i'd swear he had a major support staff manning the keyboards 24/7.
therefore, in conclusion, i would recommend shopbmforums and i will purchase there again when i get my girlfriends son's Xbox modded as a graduation present.
if you don't buy here; don't buy from anywhere!
Mar 11 2004, 02:55 PM
I had a Xecuter 2.3b Pro that was giving me some problems, sent it to Shopbmmods, Brian had the problem diagnosed within one day of recieving it and notified me of the problem. Great job and great customer service.
Evan though it takes a week shipping both ways from Washington State I'll be sending it back to him if I have any more problems.
Mar 18 2004, 04:43 PM
DJ-phYre, enrico_p, vermilion, EvoX User, conchudi, hannan54, enginenerd and kddsuq: thanks for all your great feedback! Glad our transactions went as well as you all have expressed!
Mar 18 2004, 09:33 PM
Ordered a 200gig + 2.3 lite. Order came in good time and the mod was very professional. The best part is the customer service. He always answers your questions about your order very quickly. You can also see status of you order on his very friendly site. Tracking number is provided when the unit ships.
I recommend him to everyone. I'm so glad I didn't try the mod myself.
Mar 25 2004, 09:04 PM
FIRST OF ALL, A GREAT PRODUCT AND GREAT WORKMANSHIP!
In the beginning, I searched all over the web for a good, reliable site with good feedback to order a pre-modded XBOX. I came upon many that were either selling fake clones of mod chips or were expensive. Then I came across BMMods. At a cheap $265.00, I got myself a pre-modded XBOX with the X2.3b PRO mod chip installed. Another thing that caught my attention was the abillity to pay via PAYPAL.
I received my order just a few days after I purchased it online. Everything came exactly as described: all the retail accessories, X2.3b PRO installed and a 1MB Flash Memory Card. This was my first time experience with a pre-modded XBOX so I was worried about messing it up! Luckily, BMMods has a great tutorial on how to flash your XBOX as well as great customer support. I chatted live with Brian on many occassions for technical support. He helped in everyway possible, which made my experience extremely easy. Flashing was a piece of cake! Brian also helped me configure my IP settings on my XBOX so that I could transfer files via FTP.
Workmanship was superb! The on/off switch is easily accessible just in case you want to play with XBOX Live enabled.
Overall, I am extremely impressed with BMMods and Brian. Good products, great support, what else can you asked for?
Five out of five fo sheezy, B!
Keep it up! I might wanna upgrade in the future!
Mar 28 2004, 12:44 AM
BM Mods is highly recommended if you're wanting to have your xbox modded or get a premod system. He was very quick with it and had it returned in less than a week after shipping. Great Product and even better Service. Will definately Recommend BM Mods to all my friends. : )
Mar 30 2004, 02:44 AM
BM mods is now my number one stop for anything xbox! I, as most others, was skeptical about sending my xbox away and getting it back, but they are legit and do great business!!! As stated before this is now my one stop shop! Thanks again for the help Brian!!!!
Mar 30 2004, 05:53 PM
Order Number 19
A little slow gettin back, but no fault to Jace or Brian. Ordered to have my mod chip put in, check. Case painted orange with black jewel (which i added later in the order process), check. 12V Fan mod, i can hear it, so check. Great job by all, now to find a cdrw that works!
Apr 7 2004, 04:29 PM

This guy is simply the best and understands what customer service is. I had lots of trouble getting it to work and Brian answered all my questions very quickly. I have started recomending him to all my friends and to anyone else that wants there Xboxes modded. A+ Would buy from again tomorrow if I had the cash.
Apr 15 2004, 02:51 PM
this is the kind of service you should expect from an internet shop, great communication, just AIM-ed him and he replied immediately, gave me a complete lowdown of what I was getting, and explained everything, and then when the pre-mod was out of stock he put one in stock for me to order, thats a really personalized experience as any. I am looking forward to getting my box and i will let u know how it goes. AAA rating for this guy, go get ur mods from him
Apr 18 2004, 09:14 PM
Knowledgeable, inexpensive shop to get your premodded XBOX system ($237) or get your XBOX modded. He answered all of my questions through AIM and I recieved the XBOX in 2 business days after I ordered! Highly recommended! Read, the POSITIVE comments he recieved from past consumers.
Apr 21 2004, 11:01 PM
: Thanks for all of the great feedback! NOTE:
I would like to appologize to those that have received emails from me which have bounced back and for the site being down. Over the last 3 days, I have been having many issues with our ISP. Out of nowhere, they decided to give us a dynamic IP instead of mainting the STATIC IP we pay for. Through all of this, I have had DNS resolving issues along with many others. Email is now completely functional and the webserver should be nearly 100% up.
To those who have sent Xboxes and are expecting premods, please accept my apology as during this downtime, I have not been able to print invoices or mailing addresses. I have had no way of knowing, until several hours ago, what work had to be done. I will begin working on these over the next few days.
To those who have not recieved tracking numbers, please check your account on the website now as they have been entered. Confirmation emails will be sent out shortly.
Apr 21 2004, 11:21 PM
Words just can't explain the quality of customer support and of the product. He was always there able to answer all my questions, very profesional and awsome products. You gotta buy from this guy.
Apr 23 2004, 02:51 PM
got my box yesterday, shipping was fast, packaging awesome, and the best part, for a total newbie like me, I just had to go to his tutorial for flashing a bios, read thru it and then went ahead and in 30 minutes flat, had the box running with all the goodies. I never knew all this would be so easy especially seeing so many people new to this area like me having disasters with their boxes, now I know its just abt following instructions correctly, as easy as that..
great work and thanks for all the help
Apr 29 2004, 11:38 AM
Awesome Service! I would highly recommend this guy to anyone who wants an xbox modchip install. Brian was very helpful and answered all my questions in timely fashion. My xbox was shipped back to me in perfect condition with the chip and switch firmly in place. His tutorial section on his website walked me through all the cd burning and bios flashing perfectly. Excellent workmanship!! I will definantly recommend him to my friends and will continue to do business with him.

ok im live in australian and i got onto this through a friend of mine who knows lookformeb, this friend of mine (Only4u2c, also a member here) set up everything and i bought a modded box with 120GB hard drive and only4u2c picked up the xbox from lookformeb and shipped it to me in australia, although it did take awhile to get thats no fault of theirs just cos im pretty far away hehe. Anyway im very pleased with what i got, did have a few problems getting it set up though cos we have different voltages and plugs here so i ended up buying a second xbox and swapping over the internal power supplies between the two and everything now works perfect, after failed atempts at getting a voltage converter hehe ended up blowing it up when i plugged it on cos i didnt read the instructions..... im planning on selling the second one over ebay or something probably lose a bit of money on it hopefully someone will want to buy a PAL xbox with US power supply hehe. in the end i spent a little more money than i would of liked too (postage was a bitch!!), but i still works out cheaper i think for the same thing here in australia, but oh well i'll get over it,
just want to say a big thanks to lookformeb and only4u2c for everything im pleased with what i got
May 7 2004, 11:16 AM
Great service, very reasonable repair work on my xbox. Just as friendly and helpful after the sale as before. Highly recommended.

Great repair service. Got my xbox up and running again. Did a good job communicating with me and letting me know what was going on. Very reasonable price too.

Very nice person to buy from and shipped chips super fast. Will buy from again
May 19 2004, 11:47 PM
Super fast service! I ordered a premod xbox with xecuter 2.3b lite on sunday may 16th. They shipped the xbox via fedex the next day on monday may 17th, and they sent me a tracking number at that time. I received the xbox two days later on wednesday may 19th. The XBOX works great, and it even came with a Samsung drive. I highly recommend them, as they have some of the cheapest prices around that i've seen, and they seem to have quicker processing time than some other stores i've found from these forums.
May 20 2004, 05:33 AM
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND shop.bmforums.com
Shop.bmforums.com is the place to go. I personally worked with Brian and can tell you that the shop is the best place to buy your premods. His service and prices are unmatched. He is a great guy to do business with and also very SPEEDY with his deliveries. I ordered some parts from him on monday, and I received them today, thursday. Great job Brian, and thanks once again.
