They're drop shippers - they look like they hold stock, but they don't - they buy in when they have an order (possibly only when they have enough orders to buy their stock at a wholesale price). If they don't get enough orders along with yours, or their wholesaler has no stock, you'll either get a refund, or a long delay, and then a refund when you chase your order. Annoying, but unfortunately legal, afaik.

I've opened a case with eBay on not received. I ordered it about a week ago when the last offer code was on. There is a shipping tracking code assigned but it's not left their warehouse yet. Presumably they've over sold and not kept on top of their inventory. Or their packaging staff are working like crazy to get orders out of the door.

Same problem here after I ordered 20 litres of 10w 40 from them, just got a refund instead.  But on reflection I don't need that much as it's only the 940 that uses it, so has done me a favour not turning up. Plus I found 4 litre of the stuff I didn't realise I had!

The times I've previously ordered it before Xmas, it arrived either the next day or following day

Be a shame if it's all gone tits up, need to reorder soon!

Better not delay.  I've now had my refund from ebay.  And bought 4 litres of Dexron III of Amazon from the same company without realising it for £11.92.  See if it turns up.

Luckily not too desperate as a trade parts supplier is doing 20L of 5W-30 C3 for £54 at the moment which is much cheaper than the likes of ECP and the other factors. It usually works out at about £45 from Mannol so it's not the end of the world now!

ECP had gone upto nearly £95 for 20L before Christmas which was quite frankly a ridiculous increase hence the reliance on Mannol!

This has gone ridiculously cheap again so about to reorder. Hopefully it shows up! 

VW Longline 5w-30 (C3 spec) is working out at just £40.70/20L with code JANPAY20

And normal fully synthetic 5w-30 (The ford spec) ideal for most non DPF cars that call for 5w-30, particularly 00's petrols) they sent a special offer of £73.99 for 2x 20L, and then with the JANPAY20 coupon that's about £29.60/20L

Ordered 5L of Classic 10W40 on Sunday, delivered today, so quick enough for me.  Frustratingly they’re out of stock on my preferred ‘kit’ of VAG long life oil, oil filter and air filter for my Touran which would be a screaming deal (just over 17 quid) with the current discount code.

I didn't know this thread existed until after I'd ordered some!

Placed the order last Saturday for 10w40, gear oil and coolant with carousel. After nothing happening all week, the tracking updated suddenly to say it's in the local depot.

I was expecting the worst after reading this thread and seeing their feedback. Hopefully it'll turn up Monday.

They used to be mega quick and rock solid reliable. However recently they have been really slow. Not sure why but perhaps too many have found them and are overwhelmed with orders when eBay do the 20% promo code. It's annoying but it's decent quality while being so much cheaper that it's worth holding out.

Spoke too soon. Turned up with only 1/3 bottles of gear oil!
