Date on website has now changed to 2nd June for these vario roof modules but you'll get the new 2006 model !wow! Nobody seems to have seen the 2005 model yet!!!

Anyone know if any othe rcompanies are going to make these, as www.r171.co.uk just don't seem to be able to supply them and don;t reply to any e-mails

What a joke. I guess we will receive an e-mail any time now touting the improvements being made while this guy continues to stall and keep our money. I'm going to try for a refund (fat chance I'm sure. What a rip off. r171.co.uk should be banned from this site and not allowed to advertise while continuing to take peoples money without delivering a product and not answering e-mails.

Hopefully a legitimate company will start offering the modules.

It is vapor ware and a scam to take your money.

Because that's what they told me today?????

COPY OF TEXT

Your module is here now. We just need to text and configure it. We expect
that to happen within the next 5-10 days so it should be soon with you.
Kind regards

Julien,

Because I like many others have had the module on order (and pre paid for) since November with no product delivered to anyone. So far no one has ever confirmed to actually having one.

You mean vaporware or 171.co.uk ability to get money out of people without having a product to deliver?

If it the latter, then unfortunately yes. If it's the former, then yes also because all vaporware works in theory.

I am interested in purchasing the module as well. Knowing the payment industry I want to say that You should be aware that (even if you pay with a credit card via PayPal) a merchant is not allowed to chare a credit card under until they physically ship a product under Visa and masterCard rules.

Therefore if you request a refund for non-shipment and you don't get it, then contact your credit card issuer and initiate a charge-back. They have to process that for you. problem however is that charge-backs can generally only be started up to 60 days from the transaction date as it appears on your visa/mc statement.

Regretfully if you pay via debit card you can do very little.

Check this page out http://www.agentur-piecha.de/parts_modul.htm

It looks like 171.co.uk are just importing their bits & pieces. usingthisname has had favourable dealings with Marcus of agentur-piecha, and they are quoting week 19 delivery of the module .... so it might actually exist [:)][:)][:)]
