Some parts may not be legal for street use in all states. It is the buyer's responsibility to comply with applicable state laws. Buyer understands that due to strict U.S. Federal and State safety crash guidelines, SEIBON is not responsible or liable for any damages or possible injuries incurred upon possible accidents due to driver error, incorrect installations, bad judgment, or act of nature/God, Allah, Jehovah, etc. All products are intended for off-highway uses only, and should be used for their intended purposes only. SEIBON does not take responsibility over buyer installation, modification, and unusual stress of the products. The buyer assumes all responsibilities for determining the suitability of the products. SEIBON is not responsible for any damages incurred either directly or indirectly on the vehicles or operators/passengers within the vehicles.
SEIBON will replace any hood, trunk or lip under the following conditions:
SEIBON will replace any carbon fiber component that exhibits heavy cloudiness under the clear coat (which is only visible under the Sun. SEIBON apologizes for not being able to inspect every product under natural sun light) or has a clear coat bubble larger than 3/8".
They will also replace any panel where the clear coat changes more than a full shade within 6 months. Slight fading and discoloration over time is natural. The warranty only covers more extreme cases.
To preserve carbon fiber hood finish, SEIBON recommends that the heat shield from the original hood be transferred to the carbon fiber panel, or that an aftermarket heat shield product be installed.
All products require professional installation. Buyer understands that some products may require modifications for correct fitment. Minor adjustments may be necessary as part of the normal installation process. All hoods require hood pins for safety reasons. All carbon fiber products will not sustain any force or weight, for they could be cracked by such force or weight. SEIBON has made an effort to produce all its aftermarket products to fit the original factory vehicles as closely as possible. However, some occasional prepping may be necessary for an ideal fit. The buyer needs to perform these steps to his/her satisfaction before installation. If the buyer wishes to paint the products, he or she must pre-fit the parts to the vehicle before painting to ensure proper fit. There are absolutely no returns on painted products.
SEIBON packs all products carefully to prevent damage during shipping. However, damage may still occur occasionally. Buyer must inspect the packaging and the products carefully upon receiving them, then accept the shipment and notate any damages and irregularities, such as crushed, torn, punctured, or broken parts on both the packaging and the product, on the freight bill or receipt at the driver's presence. Buyer must retain all cartons, packing materials, and damaged products for the carrier's damage inspector to inspect. Do not refuse shipment or return it without approval, because the buyer's right to make a damage claim may be denied. A signed receipt without any notation indemnified the carrier as well as SEIBON from any further damage claims. Discovery of damages after a clear delivery becomes the responsibility of the customer.
All damages must be notified to carrier and CARiD within 24 hours. In cases of damage with proper notation on receipt, the carrier will determine whether to pay for repair cost or replacement value of the damaged goods after damage inspection. Replacement value is the amount the buyer paid to CARiD and is not negotiable. All disputes about the settlement amount should be addressed with the carrier. SEIBON, under no circumstances, shall be liable for the damaged product or for subsequent settlement of the claim with the carrier.
All products require professional installation. Minor adjustments might be necessary. These are normal body work and installation steps. Therefore it is NOT considered to be defective. In addition, most carbon fiber products are hand-crafted, and no two items will be identical. Small imperfections such as wavy weaves, small bubbles, and clear coat blemishes are inevitable. Pictures are required to demonstrate true defects on products prior to return. See below for information on our return policy.
Special orders cannot be returned. If the buyer decides to return any part of the ordered item, he or she must contact CARiD who in turn can contact SEIBON and receive a return authorization within three (3) days of receiving the parts. A Return Authorization number (RA number) will be issued to the buyer by SEIBON, and it must be written on the outside of the packages being returned. Returned products must be received back at SEIBON within 10 days of issuing the return authorization. There is no return for any parts that have been used, modified, painted, or installed. All returned products are subject to a 30% restocking fee, plus return-shipment charges. Original shipping and handling fees are not refundable. All products which are approved for return are for store credit only. All products returned must be in the original shipping carton in the same condition as it was originally delivered or shipped. Only the original buyer may request for a return of products. Defective items may be exchanged for the same item only. Upon receipt of returned parts, SEIBON shall inspect the parts to determine their exact condition. If SEIBON does not accept the goods as being defective and/or returnable, buyer must accept any incurred costs. All returns, regardless of the underlying reason, must be sent shipping prepaid. Any returns sent shipping collect or without RA number will be refused and returned to the buyer at his or her own expense. Shipping costs to and from the purchaser are not refundable.
