    If they don't turn up tomorrow phone them up and demand money off the delivery (or free delivery), if they wont provide a discount due to poor service get a refund and go elsewhere.

    Thats what i would do

    i used them for some discs and pads and were here within 48 hours. but in your situation id do whats mentioned above, if there not there by tomorrow ring up and demand a discount due to poor service, blag that you've not been able to use the car due to a buckled wheel.

    i have used them once, but never will again. it took them over two weeks to send a panel airfilter, with many excuses along the way. for sheer speed and superb service i now only use http://www.roadrunnermotorsport.co.uk these people know their stuff

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    My Mate went to buy some alloys of that site, and your story sounds very similar. Got told they were in stock, couple of days delivery, week later rang up and got told they would have them in a few days then they would post them on. Another week later and he called up, they still didnt have them, no discount given. I said he should ask for discount blag that he needed them to use the car etc, they offered nothing so he asked for a refund, they then said he should have them in 4 days, he said no thanks and got a refund.
