I ordered a set awhile back, no problems whatsoever. Sorry to hear you got the "lucky" set. Atleast you used paypal, try filing item not received with ebay.

Makoto Auto Trends is known for the crappy customer service. I've dealt with them and they took almost a month to ship out my clear side markers after they recieved my money order. I called quite a few times, and emailed even more. Only twice did they answer my phone calls and they never answered my emails. Their service sucks. Period.

well today i finally got the correct items from MAKOTO AUTO TRENDS .
only took 1 month 2 days , 8 e mails , 3 phone calls . finally talked to someone , after 20 mins. of B/S and put on holds . any way i got the lites and they look good , but not worth the hassle . i for one will never deal with them again . just my opinion and i wanted to share it with all .

Damn it....I just ordered some stuff from them this weekend. I wish i saw this posting. I was wondering why the UPS tracking numbers didnt work yet. Its prob. because they havent been notified for pick up. I cant believe they prob. wont be here for a month.
