Yes, Bushy30, and just to rub it in, whoever received our bulbs probably has an L322 as well!

I'm fairly certain that Grofus received my PM sent on the 24th July as it left the Out Message Box and moved to the Sent Box. Just disappointing that there's been no response but I accept there may be a valid reason for this.

Like you I won't be on the bread-line on losing £14.50 certainly as Chelmsford's LR Main Dealer has had nearly £3500 from me in the last year.

In my PM's I did suggest to Grofus he might like to consider giving me credit for my previous purchase as my bank records show he has clearly received the money. I told him that if he organised another group buy I would happily pay for tracked / signed for postage next time.

Perhaps noworries4x4's work contact might be able to identify the manufacturer so we can enquire if we can buy direct.

Thank you noworries4x4 for doing this. Peter Kemp

Hello noworries4x4

Many thanks for the update and thanks to your colleague for being able to locate a manufacturer so quickly.

I'll be very interested to hear what you think of them when they arrive.

In an earlier post, Grofus mentioned having to pay Customs duty and the Post Office admin fee on the bulbs he had ordered so I suspect he may have sourced his in the Far East. Luckily, Bulgaria is in the EU and so is the UK for the time being! Peter Kemp

That's why I asked our teck guy to do it, he searches for things differently using code from behind websites, when every you walk into his den in our offices he has 10 monitors all linked bit like csi and a couple of engineers broken laptop or tablets stripped apart. He wont touch mobile repairs though he just throws it back and says cheaper to get a new one. If everything is under control you are not going fast enough.

Ireland 2007 Range Rover Vogue TDV8 Zermatt Silver

Jeez chaps, Ive been away and moved house too.
Anyway, I have taken it up with An Pòst and am awaitng their response. I have a letter from them stating they are making enquiries.

Trust me when I say that this is really annoying for me too. The Irish members on here will not be surprised to hear of the postal issues. They are fkin useless.
Registered post is €9.50 which makes them expensive in my opinion and not a realistic option.

For that reason Im not getting any more.
Its just too much aggro and I make nothing on them.
Its a shame as folks that have them know how good they are.
I will PM the folks who are still waiting on them when I have some news. 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal

Hello Grofus

As one of those who unfortunately never received my bulbs can I thank you for the update and good luck with your dealings with the Post Office!

I once had dealings with Parcelforce Worldwide over damaged items. After accepting a claim it took them a year to then tell me nothing to do with them, I needed to speak to the USPS! Peter Kemp

My bulbs turned up from Bulgaria yesterday and basically that was money straight down the drain, they are absolute crap, high quality cob chips they are not, wrong basses and cheap and nasty is an understatement.
I will keep searching and have another go. If everything is under control you are not going fast enough.

Hello noworries4x4

Great pity that didn't work out but I very much appreciate the time and money you committed to trying source an LED reversing light bulb.

As you may have seen from his message, Grofus isn't inclined to order any more of his bulbs because of the problems with the Post Office. Peter Kemp

If a member in the UK wants to take it on I can pass on the suppliers details. The hard work is done.
I think the postal problems are on the Irish side.
I simply cant trust them now and every loss is eventually down to me which I cant afford to swallow.
PM me any interest. Thumbs Up 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal

Would the site not take it on and sell them for a small profit in the "Shop"?

Hi Grofus,

Glad you're all back safe and sound, as said to you previously I don't hold you responsible for a postal service losing the post! Shocking state of affairs that it is, that's down to them not you -- just the way the cookie crumbles.

Anyway -- in regards to your request for someone to take it on -- one hand raised here Sir! I'll give that a go Smile

Hope that helps

Ok Bushy,
I will send the details to you and message the supplier. The good news is that they owe me a pair and I will get them to send them to you instead. Thumbs Up 2007 Vogue TDV8 in Zermatt Silver with Charcoal
