Anyone know what the central issue is with the ability of Lux to fill orders?

Is the entire company one guy with a soldering iron and an ESD station?

Just curious, not hatin' or anything.

We actually started manufacturing with a different facility this time and that is the cause of the delays. We have a large number of parts in production now and we are just waiting to get shipping confirmation on them. We expect to have them in stock for a while after we get them in

Cool. I've been kind of waiting on ordering as I wasn't too sure exactly what the situation was.

I understand the process of suppliers, parts and production capacity.

Any estimate of order to ship (say to nearest couple weeks)?

We are extremely sorry for this delay. The defect is luckily easy for us to repair and ad absolutely no impact on the quality or performance of these lights. We are working on finding the fastest way to get these repaired and we will have more info posted up as soon as it is available.

Glad I ordered the LUX V3 before I even got my new M3. I had the GP thunders in my old 335i and was perfectly happy with it but I am amazed at how substantially better the LUX V3s are over the GPs.

But yeah, it seems like the LUX are constantly out of stock since inception, that's a good thing.

Could you please elaborate on what these defects are?

I understand LUX is stating that they have "absoutely no impact on the quality or performance" but without knowing what went wrong its honestly quite eery for us customers to pay brand new prices for "repaired" products?

This hopefully settles not only my curiousity but for other customers like myself whom have waited since August to place an order..

Question: So is your policy to charge a customer, wait for the multi-month backlog to clear, then ship, or do you charge when the order ships?

When the aluminum heat sink was created the 3 tabs were made a bit too large so the light would not fit into the reflector. We need to trim down the tabs so they fit correctly. That was the only issue we ran into so everything else with the light is exactly the same. Its really only a minor issue but its time consuming to fix though

Since we use Paypal to accept order they charge at the time the order is placed.
