I've found any orders to Japan going through Mackin, the largest wholesaler for Japanese parts, have massive delays. For decades it has been the same, Mackin has not gotten their act together in terms of service and turn around times. They'll wait until they have a container full of products before ordering. This saves their shipping costs but is very slow.

Any vendor going through Mackin will encounter the same issues. Unfortunately no alternative unless you go direct to Japan.

Yup...Agreed.

Glad I never had to deal with wait times when I was into modding cars. I never stood for it when I was in the game.

Sorry to see so many folks on dozens of car forums still waiting for parts.

There are so many ways around wait times and vendors in the US. Folks just have to do some research.

the problem is when vendors flat out lie to you on waiting times, ETAs, etc.

His items were already picked up 2 days ago and sent expedited for him as well to help ease the delay experienced. Just FYI, since he had only updated his other thread.
