Check out the Vendor Classifieds. They regularly post.

Yeah they're still around [cue the major eyeroll, /start rant] gave me the major sell abt there angel eyes being brighter than others and shows products in stock on website, but after you punch the truth comes out...they're back ordered and waiting on supplier...blah blah blah. After receiving them, one side died less than a year. Emailed for replacement. ..you guessed it...we're out and it'll be a couple weeks. Couple weeks turned into a couple of months w/the new explanation that the supplier is trying to fix the defect.

Even before contacting them, I went ahead and bought a replacement set from another vendor since I kinda knew from the initial interaction what was not going to happen [end rant] I wish I cld get some money back and just cut my losses but it's been said before that we're basically dealing w/constant replacements in lifetime warranties. ...and who enjoys pulling headlights all the time...

Probably the lesson learned here is to check to make sure the part you want is in stock before pulling the trigger. This would be true with any vendor. The better ones will tell you this up-front. I've seen sites lately that won't post a price unless they have the part in stock. I applaud this.

I had a similiar experience with Umnitza. First they forget to send me my fog lights. Then they send me my painted bumper with scratches on it. They neglected to tell me that the project fogs dont fit onto the 535xi chasis unless you do some serious playing around with.

The bumper is extremely crappy material. I got bumped in a parking lot and the whole thing cracked to where it was unfixable.

I bought a replacement for $270 on ebay that is higher quality and doesn't require any modification to it so it can install in the stock bumper brackets.

They were also terrible at getting back to me every time I inquired. Needless to say they aren't people I would do business with again.

that's just the thing my friend...I ALWAYS call and verify...he gives you the "oh they're back ordered AFTER you punch!! I finally received the replacements which are on the shelve and he asked for $5 shipping to boot...really?! I combed over the website policy in hopes of finding this pertinent requirement buried...buut...nothing. Anywhoo...that's my experience YMMV but definitely off my list!
