Well i ordered from hct_car_parts (ebay seller from china) paid $720 for the splitter waited for 4 months and guess what what i received a phone cable!! They are doing this so that these China fraud people can provide a tracking number to Paypal so that they can close the case.

Called up ebay customer service and it seems that they are receiving high volume of complaint from China sellers!!!! just dont do it .....

If you do order, order from someone others have ordered from. I've ordered from China as a lot of carbon is made over there anyways and then sold via other companies.

 

I've gotten great fitting and looking pieces before, and I've gotten great looking but okay fitting before too. It's part of the game instead of shelling out way more to companies.

 

All depends on your goal. I waited 12 months for my Esprit wing to be hand made, and then another 5 for my stands to be fixed to match the clear. If I would have gone something else it would have been faster and cheaper. But it's the wing I wanted so I paid and waited.

I got a rear Varis from china with no issues, fast delivery ! im an eBay member since 2003 0% negative feedback, sold all kinds of stuff including cars. never had an issue with someone sending me empty boxes or scamming. that sucks, first eBay order the CF rear Varis clear gel was cracked in two places the guy shipped back my product no problem, i think the user name is "darwin" something, the second eBay seller made sure they had it in stock, took personal pics of the items as he wanted to show me they are in stock and at the end i went outside eBay via Paypal which i normally don't do but after paying it took less than 2 weeks and everything as perfect as it can be! it sucks to hear others getting screwed but i hope my time to get licked isn't near!
