With all due respect to all who use the forum and dislike these topics, as a community we really shouldn’t accept the false delivery dates we are given by these companies.
I appreciate that parts, especially in low volume, take a long time to produce and am happy to accept that and wait for them but companies should really be upfront about their delivery expectations.
Posts like this will let others know what to expect so they don’t have to jump on the bandwagon and post topics like this themselves. The delay in parts is the companies fault and it’s ultimately their fault that some of the customers complaining here are upset. The community here will always get some of the fall back from it but appear to take it out on the poster. Rather then getting angry at the threads/posters themselves surely a better approach would be to seek to improve transparency between suppliers. Hiding topics like this ironically makes the problem worse and they will never go away.
I’m not trying to rile anyone up here, but I feel the anger is often directed at the wrong person in these situations who is often in an anxious position thinking that they have lost their money. A simple “Parts expected on x date” on a suppliers website would solve all of these issues.
@keegancdr I had to wait just over two months to get my parts despite frequently been told “they will be shipped tomorrow” Keep pressing them and they will send them eventually send them to you.
