So I have been told I should have them by the end of the month but when it comes to Mackin and Volks I don't have much faith anymore. I waited for 6 months for a set of Volks for my E46 that never came. Check out this e-mail from a Mackin employee:

"After talking with the factory in Japan, they have informed us that the reason for the delay is due to the quantity being made. Rays Wheels requires a minimum of 40 pieces each size to make with customer colors. This means they have to make 40 fronts and 40 rears. And this wheel you are asking for is a custom color and lug pattern.

They said they let our purchasing department know but no one informed me about this. If your customer is willing to wait, then I can push the factory to make these. Otherwise we may have to find another wheel for your customer. "

So after 6 months they said we were never gonna make your wheels but we will get you some other ones. Now you got me all fired up again. I have THE worst luck with wheels, yet this will still be my third set of Volks. I still love them for the price, but getting them and having them fit is a pain in the ass.
