Does the EML light go off after so many starts if fault no longer exists? Or am I thinking of other codes. :-\ :-\ :-\
On the Omega, only the precat codes keep it illuminated. Others, the light goes out when fault fixed.

I know TB will hate it, but what do we think of this one?

I wonder how long it takes to come from Nifeng Liu B1123-1126, Yousong Technology Building 11F,Donghuan First Road, 518000 Shenzhen? :-\ :-\ :-\




about 20minutes. Unless you live in Brackley. Then they'll send you a rubber chicken in time for the August bank holiday festivities......
Most chinky ebay sellers claim item is UK, but the big fat customs sticker shows they talk 'dangle berries'.  But then everything on egay is 'dangle berries'.

I order no end of stuff from China, which tend to arrive in 10-14 days currently, as long as customs believe the customs label.  Obviously, I don't order much through egay.

Last think I ordered from chinkyland (pre-ordered in Feb) was a camera that was dispatched from China a week last Friday, and was delivered here on Wednesday :y

Ta, which I guess is why the sensors get re-positioned? :-\

In this case it probably is true that the scanner will be dispatched from the UK using the Royal Mail miss-sold 48hr parcel service, so more likely 3-4 days delivery.

The item probably is a genuine Autel, whoever they are. The problem will be if it is defective or otherwise doesn't work on your car. You'll find you have to post it back to China to get a refund. Where of course it will never arrive unless you send it via a traceable service at your expense. And the cost of that will make you conclude it's not worth returning.

I buy stuff all the time from ebay. But I try and make sure the listing explicitly states that there is a UK return address. I wouldn't touch it with a bargepole if there isn't.

IME, RM are pretty good, if its correctly stamped/paid.

I also suspect many egay sellers mark stuff dispatched ASAP partly to keep their Power Seller (whatever its called these days) valid, and also to stop items being cancelled due to it already being dispatch...   ...even when it isn't.

I agree. Ive ordered stuff at midnight and had a message to say it has just been dispatched at 3 in the morning, which is obviously shite.

Some sellers on amazon do that too.

If you are offended by anything I post, sorry. Just thought I'd get that in now.

So you've never ordered stuff just before midnight Monday, and had it delivered 10am Wednesday?


I wonder what I'm doing wrong, as you lot seem to revel in constantly choosing shit suppliers?

Yes I have had plenty of orders which have gone like that, and I haven't had many go badly wrong. I just find it amusing when I get a message from someone at 3am saying they have dispatched an order.
The bloke I order my wvo filter bags from is so quick I could almost believe he is stood outside the post office with my order ready to post, when he gets the order.
Worst experiences have been with that German company people recommend on here and the atrocious cp4l.
The only two companies I make a point of avoiding altogether.
