So no order via phone or internet?

Tried to call both yesterday and today. Your system keep saying the office is closed, and your web site says no order via phone or internet... So how should I place an order?

S111 has ceased taking orders as part of their ongoing chapter 11 proceedings. There is a long thread on Lotustalk on the topic.

Hopefully they will be back soon, as they made a lot of unique products. Unfortunately, if/when they will be back is very unclear.

Edit: http://www.lotustalk.com/forums/f195...status-400546/ Is the recent thread Shinoo made announcing they had stopped taking orders. There was another, longer thread from several months ago on the bankruptcy itself.

Sucks.
They've only ever given me fantastic customer support, and I've not heard a bad word about them.
Hope they come out of it OK on the other side.
We need more vendors like Sector111 supporting our cars..

Yes I agree they were great to deal with and had some really good unique products.

I spoke with Shinoo not too long ago. He had mentioned that they had overestimated the 4C mod business. Easy thing to do.

Especially if you're of the opinion that I am which is that the car was released a bit unstable and is screaming for some suspension mods.

Support our vendors. I have purposely bought something from most all of them.

I really think this is just a necessary business action that needs to take place and that they will be back. And I will be ready to buy from them when they do!

Too bad! I was right about to but all the track gear with them. Should have done that earlier. I hope they will be back on track ASAP

Wow that's a huge bummer.

I never got to be a customer, but I heard many great things about S111 from the Lotus crowd. I wanted to be a customer but Shinoo mysteriously stopped responding to PMs. Now I know why.

I hope Shinoo/S111 bounces back somehow. I'm sure there is enough support from the customers.

Agreed never an issue and Shinoo was pleasant to deal with.

The lift kit and jackstands I bought from them were great.

I do think the 4C mod business is overestimated. I normally mod the heck out of my cars, but am leaving the 4C stock with the exception of easy stuff like a track set of wheels and tires. This is just not a car that I'm going to beat on at the track like I do my Miatas and Formulas. I think a lot of 4C owners are like me . . . and there just aren't many 4Cs in the first place.
