I just received my tinted ones today, your right quality is just as good as the clears from the first group buy, round 1, but just not as dark as I am looking for.
Anybody want them, $45.00 to your door, email me.
BUT
While cleaning up my clears, because those found a new owner, I noticed,
in the exact same spot where the words made in Taiwan where cast into the plastic of the tinted units there appeared to be sanding marks with an "...AN" still visible.
Whats up with this? Were all of the clears made in Taiwan all along?
I believe these were from the 1st group buy.

Who cares? As long as the quality's there, which they are. And besides, how many of us actually have Golfs and Jettas made in Germany? Thought so!

My clears are made in Taiwan but I'm satisfied with 'em. Plastic is plastic.

"Sanding off the 'Made In Taiwan' is pretty shady... "
EXACTLY, that is, what I was trying to convey!
Next question. Was MHW actually involved in the manufacture of these?
Like I said mine were from the 1st round of the GB.

Re: Pizzy, 1st clear corners made in Taiwan? (Gaucho)

Okay the manufacturer in Germany may get these corners from another manufacturer in Tawian.. Its all apart of the system. Tawian makes them sells them to a company. The company sells them to Pizzy. Pizzy "DOES YOU GUYS A FAVOR" And gets factory quality corners for ya'll. Now I can care less cuz, I got mine from evandent, which were more home made (USA) then anything. My point is, a clear corner, is a clear corner, is a clear corner... Damn man let it go and stop trippin.
Now Pizzy get your but on here and defend yourself. Let them know the deal so we can stop seeing these stupid "My Pizzy corners were made in Tawian"

Re: Pizzy, 1st clear corners made in Taiwan? (Gaucho)

Get off yourselves, people. As has been pointed out, the MANUFACTURER in Germany has numerous suppliers, just like any other manufacturer. Just like VW, in fact.
As at least 90% of us have Golfs or Jettas made in Mexico or Brazil, I don't see how anyone has a right to complain. I had a set of Pizzy clear corners (only reason I no longer have them is because I got a Euro strip) and they were as advertised - OEM quality. So who the hell cares where they were made?
I mean, every VW commercial touts its cars as "German-engineered", but the vast majority are produced in Latin America. So who cares? How is this any different? These clear corners were German-engineered by MHW or whoever, and then it's manufactured elsewhere. It's economics, that's just how it works. C'mon Pizzy, stand up for yourself!

I am still waiting to hear from the manufacturer in Germany on the backorder status...

Isn't it a pity
Now, isn't it a shame
How somebody like Pizzy
Won't even take the blame
Isn't it real shady
That he sanded off the name
And took all your money
Without feeling any pain

what the hell are you writing friggin poems for. He probably got them from a company in Germany, but they probably got parts from taiwan. Its a friggin piece of plastic, and you all got it at a good price. Quit whining. Its not like the plastic is going to melt away. And don't give me this "pizzy should have told us that they were not manufactured in germany"....its stupid dillsacks like you that... whatever. get a life.

Doing people a favour?
I'm assuming he took a profit selling these, since I doubt the manufacturers would be selling them for $50 so once that happens it is no longer a favour.. it is business.
People continue to miss the point here... it has nothing to do with them being made in Taiwan... it has everything to do with sanding off the words 'MADE IN TAIWAN' which is pretty shady.

whoever feel as if they got robbed or cheated, why don't you try to get a refund from him if he is willing to offer it to you. Then go out and find some clear corners yourself or go make some yourself!

How do you know Pizzy was the one to sand the Made in Taiwan off of them. Who cares?
It's "SHADY" that you complain about this crap. They are OEM quality so who the fruck cares. I highly doubt Pizzy made a huge profit off of these. And if he did turn a profit....more power to him. He werked his ass off to make everyone happy.
So now when Evan(2kjettaguy) provides us with his smoked clear corners, are you gonna bash him and blame him for stealing our money and turning a huge profit of us vortexers? Cause I highly doubt it is as profitable of a business as you think it is.
You people need to have a
and chill the fruck out.
