is Really Light Stuff still around?

Anyone purchased anything from really light stuff recently? I have sent an email and tried to text message twice (of which is listed as a form of contact on the site) and zero response. I am trying to get my hands on one of the cell phone mount brackets they sell.

Search the forums you will see 10 threads like this. They never answer emails or phone calls and it seems like 1/10 orders gets fulfilled.

They are still around from sound of it but seems to have terrible customer service base on this thread from about a year ago. IDK if anything has changed. I have never dealt with them.

The "new" owners are terrible, thats all you really need to know. Glad I got most of the stuff I wanted beforehand.

This is good to know! I was trying to avoid sticking my magnetic cell phone mount directly to my dash, but i guess i'll just go ahead and do that...definitely do not want to do business with a company that may or may not fill an order. Thanks guys!

I finally received a turn indicator stalk yesterday that I ordered about a month ago. They did respond to my email asking for a status but that took a week or so and they simply said they were waiting on it from their supplier. Tracking information showed up and the part came last week. I think BRG is usually good about updates and my parts have always arrived, seems all parts are starting to take longer to get. RLS on the other hand does seem to have gone all but away.

Their stuff was well designed and fulfilled the need for some things we really could use.

Nothing lasts forever. Thet phone mount is super useful. Lotus like. Simple

> british racing group

I ordered and things arrived fast. I had specified the wrong key blank for the key fob, they worked with me and I'm happy. Yes, there were some delays, but it was not urgent and they were nice. this is BRITISH RACING GROUP.

REALLYLIGHTSTUFF ... I have shied away from. Thank you all for looking out, appreciate the forum a lot.

Itís sad, RLS was top notch when Thomas owned it. Itís sad to hear the new owner isnít keeeping up with Thomasís standards.

Similar tale of woe.......

Ordered the RLS Evora mirrors last year and honestly, it arrived quickly and fine. Their mounting 'dots' sucked. Wanted to get more and that was a complete exercise in futility. Finally, the brother(?) of the new owner responded and said something like 'you're better off just going to the hardware store'. Got some VHB, remounted it and all was good.

BRG: Ordered (end of MARCH) the Lotus decat pipe, glove box damper and some small parts. STILL WAITING. Got shipped from the UK and then SENT BACK because of required signature although no USPS yellow card was ever left. Currently still in shipment for a 2nd time. Can't really get much of a straight answer from BRG since it was supposedly delivered at the business address although it's hard to tell since the UK shipping/tracking website is BEYOND COMPLETELY USELESS.

STILL WAITING after 8 weeks. I'm really very disappointed with this. I'd expect this from a company that rarely does trans-Atlantic shipping but this is what they do for a living.

The fact that your letter carrier is a moron is not BRG fault

Their stuff is coming from England, so it is not Amazon

Check the prices and delivery from your local dealer, generally they are comparable

You don't need to be abusive.


There is/was no proof that even a single USPS delivery was attempted.

Since this was my first order, I expected it to come from US instead of UK (ie. they'd use LotusUSA as warehouse supplier).

My dealer (you know who) is 2x+ in cost.

Just a heads up, RLS is under new management. I just purchased the extendview mirrors they have last week and they have been shipped out to me already.

New management for the 3rd time or second? Thomas the creator sold it and the nw guy was terrible according to the posts on here and FB, so does that mean guy number 2 now sold it to a 3rd person whoís legit?

What seems to have happened is Thomasio sold it to a Father, who gave it to his son to run, his son did not run it, and the father took back control about a month ago.

I always order my stuff directly from the usual suspects in the UK, DeRoure, Elise Parts, etc. Expensive shipping, but always get my parts. Many times cheaper too in the end.
