Screwed on.

Yeah, well, now I'm broke, so I think they'll have to come with next freight stock from Seattle. I hate trying to stay on top of my health AND buying car parts AND updating my wardrobe to compensate for all this lost weight. This mess is expensive. I haven't even taken my photography seriously because of it because that's always several hundred dollars to upgrade each pop.

LOL! My boss calls me this morning from Seattle: "Soooo... I have this package here on my desk... What do you want me to do with it?" We then spend various parts of the morning discussing options. Next stock shipment is weeks away. He doesn't want to bring it with him when he comes up in about 3 weeks. UPS is expensive. So he's just going to do a Parcel Post label and drop it off at the Post Office "200 yards away". haha

Totally wish I could have noticed the destination prior to shipment. Kudos to these guys for shipping so quickly and for dirt cheap. DHL FTW.

Edit: Looked at the receipt, says they should be delivered next Tuesday.

Received my single 86 exhaust tip... Yup. That's right. SINGLE. I should have read the listing more carefully, because even though the listing title says "tips", the product description details say "x1 piece, if you need two pieces then order quantity of 2". Like seriously? Who orders just ONE FT-86 exhaust tip? They're DUAL exhaust cars!!! at myself for not reading the fine print.

"If something's too good to be true, it probably is." Another $100 to get the other tip sent to me for a total of $200, when I could have just got it from Japanparts.com for $126 shipped. So pissed right now. n00b

1. Return/sell the lone tip.
2. Put money towards OFT.
3. Profit.

Just ordered mine today. Before you know it, I'll be blowing welds on the manifold.

At least you don't have to worry about your car going into flames

I was going to make another joke about welds... But that's too easy...

Excellent idea. I've never returned anything so I hadn't thought of that. I just contacted the seller. Thanks!

So they're willing to drop the price a little to ship me another exhaust tip or I could just ship it back to Japan for a full refund. By the time I calculate shipping costs from Japan and back, even with a full refund, once I buy the full pair from Japanparts.com I will have only saved maybe $7 max, if that, most likely losing money. So I might as well eat it and buy the other tip from them. This time it would ship to me directly and get here fairly fast.
