hahah....Yeah i thought the same thing. Waiting for US contact info so I can get some pics of his successful install.
FYI also this company has supplied many of the guys on Australian gti forums, look up on Google there is a lengthy thread on there. All of them have been pretty happy with there lights and they look pretty good.
Here is the link: Start on page 1 as I believe wplamps is who supplies the aftermarket suppliers.

I have a lot of experience buying from these large asian factories in china and importing goods into the US. I used to be a large wholesaler and procurement specialist importing goods sold for frys electronics, tiger direct, newegg etc.
The one thing I can say is if you find a good reputable factory that is the certified holder of the product. Meaning they have the actual CE, RoHS, etc, etc certification and are actually ISO certified in making that product, usually the stuff can be pretty good.
It is kinda funny how it works over there, one factory will make something and it gets hot and all the others starting ripping it off and each time of lesser quality. They will boast compliance's and certifications but it could be for a USB stick and not the actual product like headlights.
If this is a good factory and there is a lot of of interest, it would make sense to get a pool together and do a big group buy.. the amount goes down with quantity and so does the shipping fees. 190 for one is obviously for express shipping.. a more traditional way you could get probably 6 sets for 200 bucks.

I gotta say though that I'm skeptical about the install success at this time. If someone really got these going they'd be all over the radar with at least phone pictures.
Got new harness's in but seems a few wires are still reversed, good news is I can attest that everything actually works on the lights but now I need to get it working on the same harness all at once. So looks like I will have to start switching around wires until I can match everything to the light but now I have all the materials to do so.
As I said before I will give them credit they are trying to fix the issue.
Okay big progress made today, received new harness from company at no charge. First they actually had the wiring right but it was upside down so I had to trim away some of the surrounding flip and to test. After some cutting I hooked everything up and everything is working, only issue I am having is a bulb out error on the parking light which has switched to the halo light. I know some of the mark 6 guys had this same issue so I will research how they fixed this over there. I believe i can do some vag work and get this to go away or just live with it for awhile. This is better than these lights just sitting unused.
I will post pictures later of everything on but at least these will be on and useable .
