Not that I had very much patience to begin with, but it’s getting close to empty. Going on 11 months and still waiting.

I’m sure there are more people in this situation. Share your stories or parts you’re waiting on. We can have a group hug or grab our pitchforks depending on how this goes...

I waited 4 weeks for the Mugen luggage mat but 11 months seems a little excessive. What did you order?

although i have nothing on order right now, i have waited a long time for some parts as most jdm parts always comes with long wait times.

longest i waited was a voltex rear diffuser for a s2000 which took me 19 months and i didnt even have the car anymore and ended up just selling to a friend.

Yup. was my worst experience ever.
it was a "special order" so they wouldnt even give me a credit to purchase another thing from them instead. Best believe i am never ordering anything else from them ever again.

I wonder where the fault lies. Voltex or shop you ordered from.

Made to order I guess, but nearly 2 years is unacceptable. How can anyone run a business like that.

Given that most people finance their cars for 5 years, they're basically shorting you of 40% of the product's useful life

It was like 19.5 month i guess lol.

Other than this, i waited about 8 months for my CT-E Supercharger for my 2015 Si and the typical 4-6 month wait time for Varis parts.

That’s insane.

Really the only thing keeping me sane is that no one else (on social media anyway) has taken delivery of the parts I’m waiting for. Leans more towards production/logistics issue.

Waited over 2 months for FK8 Goodridge SS brake lines. Finally cancelled the order and bought some Deft Motions that shipped today, 4 days after ordering.
