When I ordered one through a shop, they went and picked it up the next day, no hassle or wait time. They did inform me that if it had to be shipped from England it would take 2-3 weeks to arrive. 7.5 months is insane. Get your car towed to a different shop, at their expense. Also demand to be paid for the time your car sat, I don't know what rate you should charge, but get something in return. They also HAVE to tell you where parts are ordered from, its YOUR car. While we're at it, don't let them weasel their way out of giving you any old parts back. By law they CANNOT keep any old part of your car, its YOURS. I was able to sell my damaged, but repairable, clam to a really nice guy on here. I recouped some of my repair cost that way. The shop I used told me its illegal for them to keep parts, they must always offer them back to the customer. If they deny taking the old parts, the shop must trash the parts, they are not allowed to sell any part of a customers car, even if the customer left the part behind willingly.
