Sure. However I may be in the EU later this month and can also pick one up from a dealer while there. I wonder why there is a different part number for LCI.

Is that different part number because some LCIs don't have front fog lights, so a different switch for those?

Interested in light control switches that enable our US car's Fog Lights?

You may have a car with non-Xenon headlights. Can you check whether your car had Xenon headlights, or not?

I received an update from my buyer today, as I was expecting the shipment to be in the mail today. I got some sad news...and news doesn't get better with age...so here goes. The switches are arriving about four days later than I expected. Now, I don't expect them until mid-week 9/25'ish. I promise that when they do arrive I'll inspect, prep, and pack them within 24 hours. To you, this may mean a two to three day delay from my original dates.

I apologize.

MWPos, if there was an award for Fester of the year, you would have my vote!

So with this switch the fogs can be switched on without the headlights. That's cool, especially if the oem yellow halogens have been upgraded. I changed mine to a matching H8 LED Cree kit.

Because I have several other mods I want done, I will sit this one out. Thanks for organizing this!

My buyer says that he'd have to purchase way more than just the lights and that there'd be no benefit to us to buy the lights from him. He'd have to buy, just to get the lights, essentially every removable external panel and piece from the LCI car.

6WA and 6WB clusters....no problem. LCI headlights or tail lights...no can do.

Sorry.

You'll be on tomorrow's update. Welcome!

I will have another shipment soon after this one if this round doesn't satisfy the demand.

Update 9/17 (I'll keep updates to a minimum!)

The buyer has promised to send the switches this week, Friday in Germany (late Thursday for us), so I am still planning to receive them on the 26th and have them in the mail to you by the 28th. I will not know our cost for the switches until my buyer has proved to me his cost to purchase and ship them. I want no money from anyone until I have received and inspected the switches.

When I am ready to take your money and send or hand the switch(es) to you, I want to announce this moment in a way which is as fair as possible for all of us. I will send a PM to everyone on this list that will alert you to send money to me. I'll try to time this to be at 6 PM (PDT) on the 27th so it's not too early on the best coast or too late on the least coast (no prejudice here ). My PM will contain the dollar amount to be sent to my PayPal account, with or without shipping, and my PayPal ID.

At that moment, from when I send the PMs, (and this is the part I fear may cause frustration), it is a matter of first come, first served. My PayPal inbox will reflect who paid, in what order, and I will fill the orders as far down the list as I have switches to go. If you want me to back up the PM with an email from me, please PM me with your email address.

If you are too far down the list to get a switch this time, I will refund 100% of your money or, if you so desire, hold your funds to guarantee that you get your switch in the next order.

I know that we are all busy, and at the date and time of my PM it may be impossible for you to act so please PM me if you have any issue with my plan, or want to discuss an alternative to what I have proposed. Please, do not start a public discussion on this. Please send your comments only to me.

My goal is to please everyone.

Last update until the switches arrive! The buyer has them and all 25 switches are in perfect condition and are being shipped to us in a few hours (tonight for us, Friday morning in Europe).

For the actual sales event, I have decided that I need to add another dimension to filling orders to ensure fairness. I think that this order has turned out well and that we'll have as many buyers who pay as we will have switches. Just in case I am a switch or two short on this round, I will go by the order of posting in this thread to decide between two buyers who have both paid but for whom I have only one switch. The buyer who posted the earliest "I'm in!" will get the switch. I'd like to recognize CorDoor for pointing out to me that I should consider the posting order if I run into a tie for the last switch or two.

I'll post an update next week when I have received the switches.

I am sorry to say that the switches did NOT land on my doorstep today. They did leave Europe on the 21st. I apologize for the delay. I will let you know as soon as I do receive them so that you will know when to expect the "start-of-sale" PM and email messages.
