I purchased a ViS carbon fiber oem hood from this powerseller on ebay like 2 months ago_On Mar 28, he said the package got damaged during shipping and that he sent out another order to me. Then i called him back today and he said ViS was out of stock of this Hood for 3 months now...

should i just get a refund or wait? i paid 450. i was thinkin to pay 50 bucks more and get a seibon hood... what should i do?

I would just get my money back. If you still want a VIS hood, instead of the seibon hood, just call VIS to check out the seller's story. If VIS says they have them in stock then order directly from them. If they have the hood instock you usually will recieve it within 7-10 business days. Seibon is also a good hood for the money. Just my 2 cents though.

Go with Seibon... however, just so you know, it is probably correct that VIS is trying to fill orders on the OEM-style hood for 1997-2001 Preludes. Seibon is currently having this same problem, which is why I am currently waiting on my hood to come in as well. But, for the record, I hate VIS and their customer service... I'd go with Seibon. I've had nothing but problems with every VIS product that I have ever owned.

stop buying on ebay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay sorry but you're way more likely to run into this shit when buying from a regular dealer on the internet. See, the good thing about buying from eBay is the sellers are supposed to be able to get what they list, whether they actually have it in stock or they're having it shipped by the supplier. When I was looking for a Type-S valve cover I searched on the internet because there weren't any listed on eBay. I called 15-20 dealers that had it listed on their site as "in stock" and none of them had it. None of them even knew when they were getting more but if I would've just ordered and paid for it from their site without calling first I probably would've waited for 2 weeks for it to arrive and then called and found out it's on backorder. Eventually I contacted ShopResponse on eBay and they got a hold of one for me. On eBay sellers have to worry about their reputation so they give better service in my experience. They also ship out a lot faster than regular dealers do because they don't want any negative feedback. Also, you're rarely going to find something cheaper than eBay anywhere sles on the net because all of the sellers have to compete with each other. As long as you buy new, know exactly what you're looking for and go with a reputable seller with a good feedback rating you'll be fine buying on eBay.
