A lot of people have ordered. I did so last week as Chris couldn't give me any timeframe which nullifies any hope of getting a group buy. There could be a possibility of BMWNA comes out with these, but like pointed out wont happen...

NO! I have emailed him about 3 times with no response... Not sure whats going on. Still have yet to hear back or get shipping information. I believe this is what happened to Woosh but he ended up being fine as he received his lights.

Yea. I assume Danny just gets behind and hard to stay up on all the emails. I also ordered a day or so after Sat and haven't heard back after a couple emails. Email last weekend said hopefully shipping this last wednesday with tracking info emailed when it's sent but haven't heard and no tracking info.

I'm not in a rush but it's a lot of money sent to the other side of the world to not be getting responses.

Ordered my second pair from bmwpartsonline.co.uk and still have not recieved a shippment tracking number or anything, just the original receipt on day of purchase. Ive emailed them as well, but no reply. Ugh.
If you guys buying these online, Id say go with Schiedmann if you guys buy these. they where fast and they reply to messages.
Avoid bmwpartsonline.co.uk..

Danny told me last week he bought bigger boxes for the next batch (as my light cracked in freight), so I'd say he's just in the process of waiting for BMW to deliver the lights. Give him time guys... I know the wait sucks but it'll be worth it. 5-6 of us in Australia used him and all received our lights within 2-4 weeks (and I'm sure someone else from US posted already that they received their lights from him). We had the same delay/lack of replies.. so it's not uncommon. You'll receive your lights... just be patient.

Hi guys , all sets delivered in Australia were from dany. He is legit as far as I know , his communication is poor though. When one of the guys emailed him whilst we were waiting for ours he said that his email system was playing up. The lights came soon after. I would just hang in there , they are worth the wait.

Thanks! Will sit tight!

FINAL UPDATE 5/7.. The roadblock with BMWNA isn't going to get resolved (they are not going to allow the lights to come over to the US) thus bringing this Group Buy to a close...

Please don't hesitate to order a set though from S....mann or bmwpartsonlineUK.

A couple of us have ordered a set and are waiting anxiously for them. The price difference is not much more expensive so just order while you still can!!!!

Again sorry that this couldn't pull through... It was a great effort nevertheless! Continue to use this thread as an endless resource for the lights!

FYI my order from bmwpartsonline.co.uk is now in Packing stage.

So, there is no need for panic over vendors not being reliable.

Therefore in June we all should be rolling with Blacklines...
