Has anyone have had issues when ordering from VW vendors?.. In particular, delayed shipping that went over 7 days. I ordered A set of tins from JBugs, and its taking them forever to ship them. No shipping information or anything. I should have ordered them from the vendors on ebay. Everything I order there, is shipped in three days, and most of it with free shipping. I can understand if parts are on back order, but let the costumer know, so He would have more options! Sheesh!........

that's a bummer. JBugs is usually pretty good.
I'd inquire about my order. If they have not shipped, I'd cancel and shop elsewhere. And I'd let them know that.

FWIW I ordered some stuff from them last year online. I checked the status a few days later and it still said "processing". Then the next day it showed up at my house. I never recieved shipping info or a tracking number or anything.

Give www.bughaus.com a try. You'll be speaking to the knowledgeable proprietor and they are a lot closer to you, shipping would be faster

...but I will order the parts from clear across the continent. Rolling Eyes
In the future I'd try this guy out. He's in your neck of the woods, probably get stuff next day, and he sells the GOOD STUFF. I've had a few painless dealings with him.

Yea... no... I checked this guy out, and maybe a little too pricey..... Anyway finally got the tracking It was mailed out 4 days ago.. After repeated attempts for info. They finally came thru... The local guy I usually buy from is closing up shop. All his stuff is original German and way more reasonable . price wise.......

Would suggest posting this in the feedback forum. I run into the same thing on occasion, but not very often. I don't order from them, but use a few other vendors (CIP1 and WW primarily). But both of them show if its in stock or not.

Its a good idea to have some additional sources for things you need quick, but you may pay a premium for if you really need it. I have a couple of those as well. (Good to have a plan B)
