CSP availability






I just want to adress that I think it's a weird move from Fanatec to take the clubsport pedals v1 out of the webshop 2 months before the v2 are planned to arrive (who knows they won't even make that date).

A few days back they where still there, now I want to order and they are gone.

Next to that I first wanted to buy the CSR elite pedals but clubsports just seems the better way to go and the € 50,- price difference was doable, now with the v2's they will be another € 50,- more expensive.

I think Fanatecs (non)commercial attitude, product availability and phasing out old products even before the new ones are there is really weird.

This leaves a not too good impression and isn't proper commercial acting in my opinion.

But that's just my 2 cents and I get the feeling Fanatec doesn't really care about it.

Sorry for cross posting

Sorry for cross posting between the blog and the forum but just want to make sure this is being read:

Reckon that the estimates made in the blog post...

we expect the first shipment in USA, EU and AUS in June. We will start taking pre-orders from our new website in May

...won't be met since Fanatec mentioned that pre-order would start when the CSW and CSP where actually on it's way by boat.

Since it is still impossible to pre-order I reckon the boat isn't on it's way yet and combined with the fact that an average boat trip from China to Germany is 30 days and customs clearing can sometimes take up to 2 weeks this leads to the conclusion that (once again) the stated time schedule will be very hard to accomplish.

Fanatec support refuses to answer questions about the estimates, even a simple question like: "Do you think the end of June will be met or not? Else I will have to order the CSR-E pedals." gets an evasive answer. And replies on Thomas' posts here on the blog with the same question simply don't get answered at all :(

All we want to know is if they still think they can meet the estimated first shipments in June or not :S but somehow I think I already know the answer to that.

So I'm just going to say what I think a lot of people would like to do but are afraid of consequences or whatever:

Come on Fanatec, it's worse enough that you sell out products before even getting new ones and let people wait for months, but at least try to keep your "fans" up to date on this kind of stuff to keep them satisfied or so they can order something else (for now) instead of completely evading questions about it.

There's nothing wrong with some delay but at least be decent enough to mention it.
