My tracking link doesn't list an estimated delivery date but I can see it's moving along. Customs released mine yesterday so I'm guessing it's on it's way stateside now.

There have been numerous valuable updates posted for that group of people participating in the group buy and we have collectively received positive updates.

There's been no Slonik bashing in here, simply informative info for those that desire it. Not sure why you and some others (who don't have thousands of dollars outstanding for 3+ months by the way) feel the need to comment calling us babies for whining or time wasters. Literally the definition of trolling.
This is like the 3rd thread on this topic since slonik came to the forum

They all read exactly the same. And apparently do not create any awareness as the next group of people will run into the same issue and then open a 4th thread

All the threads follow the exact same process:
-people buy stuff from slonik
-the stuff isn't delivered in the expected timeline
-people start getting nervous and blowing up his inbox/whatsapp
-they open a thread wondering if he has stolen their money
-slonik *never* replies to the thread
-eventually people get their goodies

Regarding slonik and thousands of dollars:
I was part of one of his group buys. The parts, as usual, came late. A fellow forum participant got his so late that he had a track event before he got his so I sent mine to him and then ended up waiting another period of time to finally get mine.
So I do have experience waiting around for slonik. It isn't a good experience but IMO worth it because no one else makes stuff like he does.

Since his first group buy it's been the exact same thing. He doesn't have good communication, for whatever reason. If you don't like it then don't buy from him.


It's hard to believe mods have locked his thread... what a waste of everyone's time.

I wasn't planning on starting another thread that's why I asked here. From what I could tell people in this thread were mainly waiting on brake kits, which have apparently started to ship and I was wondering if anyone waiting on a pan has gotten any similar updates. I expected the brake kits to take priority over the pans since there is more money tied up in those but was just curious if anyone waiting on a pan has heard anything yet.

I got my rear brakes.

I bought a set of lightly used rear calipers and asked slonik to paint them.

I'm still waiting for the fronts to arrive, but this is a good sign!

Fronts just arrived!

I must comment that the caliper, paint and packaging are very high quality. I examined the calipers and there's an even layer of paint all around the caliper and no paint where there shouldn't be. The shipping box is impressive as well, custom made for the calipers and hardware.

The calipers are MASSIVE btw.

About 150 per caliper including return shipping. Very impressed with quality, but shipping cost to Russia sucked.

Aside from the wait time, I have no other reservations from recommending his services.

Mine arrived!

So in closing thanks for everyone for the good communication to help each other out. I said originally I just wanted a positive outcome and that's what we got. Hope everyone has a good outcome too!

No, you won't Bimmer Barney worked hard to get his threads closed. I mean to improve communication regarding an ongoing GB.

I jest.

I can take the joke 😬

but in all seriousness all I did was work hard to get my parts. I expect the moderators will consider unlocking them once everyone gets their parts, or whenever they want. From the sound of it there are outstanding DCT parts and brake parts and this is or for the course (lesson learned for me!)

Well, for me it's between Slonik's set and a Brembo GT BBK... given its roughly a 3k or so difference I don't mind waiting a little bit extra
