2016 Valenti Style Sequential Tail Lights-ebay vendor

Has anyone here purchased these taillights from this eBay vendor? http://www.ebay.com/itm/2013-SUBARU-...-/191565880826

I emailed the eBay vendor twice last week asking for a part, model, or SKU number but so far no response.

Claims to have sold 67 but I can only find one positive review on them, no negatives.

They are ~$74. cheaper than those currently being sold by 2 other online vendors. They look the same but are they fake?

with over 174,000 star rating, i am going to assume they are legit. you dont get that many stars if shit was fake so order it!

Don't care if the vendor has a gazillion star rating. 3 emails asking for the part number in the last 2 weeks, no response.

Well Valenti tails are mostly made in Taiwan anyways, and companies get fatter discounts the more bulk they get. I think originally when i was looking at these two years back i found a set on ebay for about 200$ and was equally sketched out. I feel that typically when you buy within state they cost about 40-60$ more because of shipment fees, company warranties, and if an issue occures you dont have to ship it back for an additional 30$.

I found 2 recent positive reviews on these Valenti tails from this ebay vendor so I decided to buy a pair from him. The ahole though blocked me from purchasing them and also put a block on me contacting him. I have a Paypal account and a 100% feedback rating.

I asked him a simple question about what the part number was, was not abusive, or used any 4 letter words.

DO NOT purchase anything from this ahole.

The red/clear to me was too much red on a firestorm. The red/chrome gives it a bit more contrast, not so monocolor, but to each his own.

I'll post some pics after I install them.

There were some doubts whether Speedline's Valenti's were authentic.

I would just pay the extra money and buy it from a legit place. Don't have to worry about it being fake or having warranty issues.

I don't want to get into this too much since there have already been discussions on other threads about the authenticity of Valenti tail lights being sold by other vendors. http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showt...hlight=valenti

These tails are warrantied by Speedline.
