Quick update, Lights are in the UK and we will have them shortly. Have had an issue with the company that was formely DEPO UK. Since we ordered them the company went into luiquidation and until all legal matters are resolved the administrators will not release stock.

I have spoke with the admninistrators and DEPO Taiwan (which isnt easy!) and both have confirmed that the stock is our property and will be released shortly. Sorry for the inconvenience of the wait, we have no control over it and are in the same situation as all of the people that are waiting for their lights.

We used to order them through a company that traded as DEPO uk. They were closing up and DEPO wanted new distributors. We were offered the remaining UK stock of the dark headlights which we agreed to take but before they were dispatched the company closed. The administrators which took over finalise the companies stock and finances would not send us the stock until DEPO Taiwan agreed that we could have them, thats when the fun started..... I had to prove that they were paid for, Administrators had to prove the company that was formely DEPO uk had paid DEPO Taiwan for the stock.

But following various 2.30 am phonecalls we have the matter resolved.



Good news, stock is arriving with us within 14 days


On another note, I am trying to keep this as an informative thread for people that are part of the group buy, not to be a thread that is three pages long full of bullshit posted by certain users. I am sure the people that are part of the group buy will appreciate this as well.


a note to user: bigboy219

please keep you sale seperate from mine and restrain yourself from posting in this thread, your comments are not welcome, constructive or helpfull in any way.

You're a cheeky shit deleting the other thread even though it was made sticky

I'll say my piece again...

As the middle man (making your markup), you should take the hit for this.

Currently you're laughing with your markup in your bank and everyone elses money stuck in Taiwan somewhere.

Being the 'middle man' you should take all risks associated with it, hence why you make a profit on each item.

You should refund everyone, take the hit, then sell the items once you have them in stock. I'm sure you'd have no problem shifting them. That would be "good business", something you're not familiar with.

Very bad business IMO. Can't see many of these unlucky people being returning customers. But, like Dave has said many a time before "I don't need business from Corsasport. I have enough as it is." Excellent attitude

I've also saved this, in case you try the old deleting act again, cheers.

Nobody expected an update every 10 minutes. But come on! You on here most of the time and could update properly once a week. Not cut and paste the same post.
Most of us have been patient enough with you now. It has now gone beyond a joke.

Stop people advertising there wares on here if they are not going to provide a decent service.
If this was eBay, I would hate to see the sellers feedback rating.

Now the sales have taken place, admin can do nothing.

I can totally see where Dave is coming from here, its seems to be stressing him out just as much as the payers.

Its such a shame it has taken / is taking so long. I really hope Dave can get them out to you all soon.

I know its hard, but try not to abuse Dave as that wont help and makes the forum an angry place than it already is.

If nothing has been received within another 4 weeks, its time for you all to start thinking about your rights as a buyer and what standards help you can enforce / seek.

At the end of the day, Dave could get them in tommorow, then again he could not.

If theres no news to update them with then he wont update them will he?

Keep the comments constructive, I'd also appreciate it if only the people who are dealing with Vsport on the head lights buy commented and not everyone with an fucking opinion.

im afraid none of the mods have anything near to that sort of power, as far as i know its a delay in delivery, if your not happy ring dave up would be my advice

im not sure what else you want mods to do ?

Last time I did that I was told I'd get a u2u. Also, seeing as the whole group sale was arranged through the Corsasport messageboard then it stands to reason that we should be updated on here frequently by Dave A rather than one of us having to ring up and report back to the rest, it's customer service basically.

Basically if it was you're avarage joe member selling these lights admin or ian etc would of banned them by now, I'm not suggesting dave should be banned either. My car goes away for an engine conversion very soon & the only thing i havnt got for the build is my headlights. I'm on holiday on wednesday for 10 days & if there not here by then i want my money back & i think everyone whos doing the group buy should do so too. And about " dont expect an update every 10 mins ", well that can be solved easy, All you would have to do is say on the thread " sorry guys the lights are not here today ".

I'm as disappointed as the next man that goods in sales such as this are not available in good time, as per my requests. I've updated the rules for clarity.

I would advise everyone involved that they have legal rights which they should exhaust in the first instance. This includes the right to cancel should goods not be delivered in an appropriate time-frame although it is your responsibility as a consumer to get off the internet and sort it out yourself.

A complete guide to your legal rights is here - http://www.out-law.com/page-430

Nice theory but regulating everything is difficult. Plus no single decision by me would reflect the opinion of everyone. Furthermore it isn't actually my place legally to make decisions like that. I intend to programme a feedback system but you're quite right - this isn't Ebay and I don't have a team of staff to do that or the money to subcontract it. I think any adult who has been here more than five minutes is well capable of making their own decisions.
