Well guys, I just want to say that my order from over 2 months ago have been finally refunded a few days ago. The parts never came in even after promising the "in 10 days" multiple times. Luckily for me, my refunded went semi-smoothly...but in the end, I got my money back.

I was going to but having an APO shipping addy means shipping twice overseas with 2x the chance of parts being destroyed and a very, very long wait. PB is located in Italy and I have a physical addy in Germany that should have meant a week or less wait with less likely destruction of parts.
Long story short, easier and cheaper is not better. Would have liked to shop with HK but too risky due to shipping (nothing to do with HK) so I now go through Elise-shop and get the parts in a couple days.
I have received an e-mail from PB after informing them that they should state that their CF parts are bulk buy defects from CF makers on their website stating they would refund my money. I have yet to see the refund a little over a week now but I will not hold my breath and consider it a lesson learned lol.

I have received emails from paypal stating they have refunded my money and frederico says he has-paypal isn't showing anything yet nor is my credit card, but I will give them the benefit of the doubt.

To be fair, Frederico has been pleasant and understanding thus far, so hopefully some future honesty/clarity on their part prior to purchase will avoid these issues in the future.

I on the other hand, will never do business with them again.

we'll see what Lotus comes up with next...

Frederico did get it shipped but even if they started selling the best parts in the world I too will never give them my business.
Live and learn lol.

Checking back in now that my situation has been rectified. Frederico made efforts to fix things as best he can.

Annoyed but content walking away at this point-I'd like to believe them that they had a bad apple in the business that caused many of these problems, but at the same time its never one person's fault, so we'll see if they can rectify the problem.
