Dear Mr/Ms Charles Brigante,


We unfortunately don't have good news for you. We are still waiting upon supply of the items below which you have placed on order.

These are the following items which have not currently reached us:
Qty. Description Unit Price Total Price MwSt 1 FKFSFO023 Scheinwerfer Angel Eyes Set für Ford Focus Bj. 05- schwarz 151,58 EUR 151,58 EUR 19%


We are working hard on contacting our suppliers so that they can provide us with the items which are not in stock. And thus are waiting for a response back from them as to whether or not they can fulfill our order requirements as we have you as a customer waiting on items.
When we get a sufficient answer from them then we will get back in contact with you. Thus there is no need to contact us further as we already have your order query at hand.

We do extremely apologize for the inconvenience caused! Once the outstanding items have been received by us then we can immediately send your goods out for you. Before this we can't do anything.

Unless if you want to cancel the outstanding items from your order then you can do so through your online "live" account section. Then when the items have been cancelled you will get an email notifying you of the cancellation. And then our finance department will get a similar email at the same time notifying them that they need to refund you, which means that there will be no further need for you to get in touch with us.

Some items are in stock and reserved for you, if you trigger a partial delivery in your online "live" account section to "NOW" option then the in stock items will be sent out for you.

Just for your overview below are your order details: eShop Order number: date of receipt of your order: 29.01.2013 18:46:59 You have selected the following payment method: PayPal You have selected the following terms of delivery: DHL
The order is scheduled for delivery to the following address:
Charles Brigante
Nottingham
Großbritannien


NEW: "LIVE" account - get all the information you need on your order with live updates!

You generally can view your order status "live" through your online live account section. You'll see the missing items as an example were you can initiate either a partial delivery were you send out the items in stock and leave the non stock items on back order.
Or alternatively another way is you can cancel the items which are not in stock so that the money is sent back to you and the rest of the items will be dispatched out for you.
These are just two things which you can do in your shop. We have really a lot more cool functions which are can take a look at such as obtaining tracking numbers and much much more….
So why not simply log onto your account and view all of these amazing, easy to use functions.

We hope that you enjoy shopping with us and wish you all the best in the future!

Sincerely,
Your FK Automotive Account team

I'd definitely be asking for a partial refund to make it worth your while.

Best case scenario, they give you it. Worst case scenario, they don't. Worth a shot.

What a pain in the rear.
I guess you'll not be recommending the company to the Forum then?

As tdcist says, fk is supposed to be a well known established company which is why i thought it would be ok buying from them.

i know its a supplier issue, but if they dont have the product in stock i dont think they should be taking peoples money until it is, especially when they literally dont have a clue when they will be getting more stock in.

also trying to work out how i've been charged double for delivery. thought its supposed to be 10quid but ive been charged 20


as it stands i cant say id recommend em no

Yes agreed they should refund the money until they have the parts in stock , annoying that they hold your money while they get the parts in.

Did you buy them a single set, or two individual headlamps? Might explain the double delivery charge if the latter is the case.

Oh yeah, I'll soon resume hydro dipping as I have now sourced myself a better quality carbon print that actually looks like carbon fibre lol

Not the best photo but this is what the print looks like

Posted Image

It will be darker than this when dipped as I'll be using a darker base colour

If I get round to it I'll start re-dipping my interior tomorrow

Also thinking about dipping the grill and fog surrounds

Also gonna do under the bonnet


Will look proper quality when I'm done

Well this is the latest on my new headlights...


Dear Mr/Ms Charles Brigante,

We're really sorry. It is always not yet managed to organize the outstanding products. Unfortunately we are dependent on the supplier and you can be assured that we are trying our best to get the outstanding items from our suppliers so we can complete your order. It is definitely not our intention to offend you or be put off with dealing from us, but it may so happen from time to time when we have over 1,000,000 products in stock we can make an error.

Please may you wait a few days. And if we are not able to obtain the goods within 14 Days then we will have to unfortuantly cancel the outstanding items from your order, due to us not being able to fulfill your order requirements, as we could not get the relevant stock from our suppliers in time for you, apologies! Our suggestion: Is that if you if you do not want the items then you can log onto your "live" online account and cancel the outstanding items from your order. Or you can trigger a partial delivery so that the in stock items can be sent out and the not in stock current items will be placed on back order for 14 days.



Don't look like I'll be getting them at all

Right ladies n gentle folk


The day is finally among us and after a very.. very very.. very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very very long wait..

My new headlights have finally made they're way from doichland


After hearing a knock at the door from dhl man I bolted downstairs to be greeted by a box big enough to comfortably fit a mangled body or two in ;)

Posted Image

And inside that box was smaller box

Posted Image

And inside that box was two smaller boxes

Posted Image

And finally upon opening these boxes I find this

Posted Image

Shrink wrap removed and I am left with this thing of beauty :wub: :wub: :wub:
Posted Image


Immediate thoughts are they look !Removed! sexy and they quality seems decent enough so far


Sadly I'm gonna have to hold off on fitting them for a little while longer as I've gotta dart off to birmingham shortly

But once there I'll set about fitting them n hopefully follow up with some sexy night shots of em in action later tonight

Watch this space
