It's that easy on the '04+ too.

Hoen has my order and they are usually very good about getting those orders out.. this time there was a back order issue... nothing that I can do about it and there is nothing that they will do about it as this is only a regular order from a dealer. I don't know how else to put this and for the life of me I can't understand what the extreme rush is... they are $22... almost half price... if these people can't understand that when you want something that cheap you sometimes have to wait a bit.

I'm sorry if it seems like I'm coming off like I don't really care but this really is quite bothersome for something that I am giving away.

Would you mind just refunding the money please, i really couldnt care less about the fking things. If you dont want to sell them dont offer them its not about the price its about service its about doing the right thing and clearly they are not. So if you dont mind please refund and i know its not your fault but i relly dont care anymore. Thanks Perry

That guy is an asshole!!!!!......sorry to put it like that. No wonder Hoen will not ship him the lights. He needs to take a buisness class. He might not be making any money, but it is about spreading the word about his shop. The word right now from people around here do not ever do buisness with this company.

Here's an email I received from Hoen-USA today:

Hello, indeed we have a backorder status on some of our fitments due to new production of the Endurance line taking over capacity for April. We were unaware of a group buy organized by one of our dealers and we in fact do not allow our dealers to promote such events without our consent - which would have prevented the current situation x5world members are unfortunately now facing.

I really have no further information I can offer I'm afraid. We expected to fullfill a pending order with BHS within the next 10 days however that would depend on how a non approved group buy effects his status as a Hoen dealer. From previous experience, dealers who have sold under the MAP or via unapproved group purchases were removed after the group buy had ended - we did not want to penalize customers for a dealers actions so orders were fullfilled.

I will have more data for you tomorrow once my boss gives me his feedback.

thank you
Robert


It looks like the sh*t will be hitting the fan soon.
