I emailed to josh@autowerks.com as i never got a reply to my pm i send to josh here on fanatics. I sended a second mail including my international iban bank number so they can send the money back with great speed. I also gave the
my pay pal adres as a second option if a international wire is not possibel for some reason. Just to be safe that there is no exuse to send back the money.

I respect eagle eyes decesion to full test dot approve the lights but the time line doesnt comply with my needs. My plannes are ****ed. My ice system needs to be re installed.

So to compensate for all this delay please send my money back soon.
I am very curious if i will get it back soon. Waiting another month or more for my money to return to Europe will only add to my frustration.

Pmmeke,

Last PM I recieved from you was on 01/05, haven't received one since then. Also, email address is jjohnson@autowerks.com so I never received your email.

I just sent you a PM today, let me know if you didn't receive it.

Thanks.

Yes somewhat confuged about the nick name with a @ in it on these forums. I looked like your email adres. But ok everything should be ok now.

Thanks for pay palling me the money back. I will check if its ok.

This is realy the first time i cancelled any order in my life but i am on a deadline. I am not a normal guy who drives a car. I have deadline to catch, shoots to do, appointments are made, cancelling my stuff is a small disaster. Thanks for resending my money back soon.

Just a post to let you know we are still on track with everything.

I also wanted to answer a few questions that have come up over the past week:

Is Eagle Eyes still testing the product?
No, testing is done. The US spec lights work on the US cars and the Euro Spec units work on the Euro cars. We are now waiting for DOT certification to be completed on the US spec units. And contrary to what you may hear, we were the first to have a working set of US Spec lights on a US car. The other retailer can certainly claim to be the first to have a jury rigged Euro spec set work on a US car

Why is AutoWerks the only one able to sell US Spec units?
Actually, you can buy your LEDs from any retailer who decides to carry them. We are simply the sole distributor initially for Eagle Eyes. This often happens when a manufacturer wants to launch a new product but they don't have any marketing presence in the country. As a manufacturer Eagle Eyes does not want to take individual orders from each retailer on this board. They need to select someone to fill that role. It is not designed to keep prices high or any other artificial market manipulation. If you wish to buy your units from another retailer, you can absolutely do that.

Why am I seeing other units being advertised on eBay and other retailers?
These are Eagle Eyes units, but they are Euro spec, which already has limited release since it received its E-Mark certification (Euro version of DOT basically). The eBay version is unmodified and will throw fault codes (we bought a set just to be sure). Other retailers are trying to modify the Euro versions to work on US cars for reasons that baffle me since a working US version has already been developed.

Why is Eagle Eyes meeting with another retailer this week when you guys are the main distributor?
They aren't. This comes straight from the VP of Eagle Eyes. Why someone would make this claim again baffles me.

We will continue to provide regular updates. However, at this point most of the updates will not be too dramatic other than saying we are still on schedule. It is basically a matter of waiting for the DOT processing to complete and you know how fast many of these government agencies move.

Everything is still on track as of today. It is the Chinese New Year so nothing is happening on their end until February 6th.

As soon as we get any new news, you guys will be the first to know!

Hold your horses - we never said anything about them shipping on the the 6th!

As far as we know everything is progressing as it should for the DOT certification process.

No news is good news right now.
