  • Xenon Shop - A Word of Warning!!

    Xenon Shop - A Word of Warning!! Some of you may not have seen this and I know there are quite a few people fitting HID's to the Astra....

    The Xenon Shop, www.xenonshop.co.uk

    Hey guy's, just thought i'd share my experience with these guy's so you don't get stung like I did!

    The story as it happened:

    First order:
    (received after waiting more than 2 weeks)

    Pro Elite 55W D2S HID Kit
    LED W5W Sidelights

    This was received minus the LED sidelights and the connection wires that supply the ballasts. So I contacted the guy and he sent the LED sidelights out, I didn't mention the wires as I had some spare.


    Second order:
    (again took over 2 weeks to arrive)

    Pro Elite 55W D2S HID Kit

    This was received minus the connection wires again, I didn't bother him as again I had some spare.


    Third order:
    (just under the 2 weeks this time so we're getting better, i thought!)

    Pro Elite 55W D2S HID Kit
    D2S leads

    This was received with the connection wires this time... woohoo, we are getting somewhere! BUT... minus the extra set of D2S leads I ordered. So I contacted the guy again and he informs me "the D2S leads are an extra to the kit so you've got what you paid for, the first 2 sets I threw them in cause I knew you'd need them". OK? So you are selling HID kits minus the vital part that connects the ballast to the bulb? "yes, cause they are an accessory, not part of the kit".

    It is like banging my head against a brick wall here, roughly 15 emails have went back and forth and the end result is he is not going to supply them to me.

    He call's me pendantic and picky!!

    I have since opened a dispute through Paypal so we'll wait and see!

    So if you are looking for a HID kit or accessories for one of any kind, think very carefully before buying from them!!

    Thanks for the warning!

    They took ages sending mine out and giving excuses, in the end they got it out to me.

    I'm sticking to HIDS4U!

                  HIDS4U look as if they sell quality kit, but....

                  ....they are expensive!

                  Ok, you get discount but the kits should be £100.00 tops.

                  Watch this space for quality kits at low prices!!

                    I'd rather pay the extra sometimes for pace of mind.

                    "Watch this space for quality kits at low prices!!"
                    Sounds good keep us posted
