Basically a German shop with a .co.uk address.  The only place with a UK shop front to have something in stock that I wanted.  Problem 1: their checkout procedure is translated from the German, hard to follow and defaults to payment by bank transfer - to a German bank.  Sod that, the SWIFT fee is £20!  They also take PayPal or credit cards so I sent them an enquiry with the correct order number, asking to pay by card instead.

Problem 2: Four days, two working days, and still no reply.  I think I'll just look for it elsewhere.

I had a similar issue (the ordering part) with shop4cross.de, all of there site was in English, apart from the checkout!  A quick email soon cleared stuff up tho.

They're still incommunicado so I ordered it from a real German shop.

Took a chance with them as the extra Black Friday discount on already low prices was irresistible.
So - ordered on Friday (very late p.m.)
Confirmation Monday with DHL tracking reference
Delivered Wednesday.
Pukka Shimano retail packaging, not the OEM pack you sometimes get from Ribble and others in UK.
No problems with checkout - although I did use Paypal.

Able to supply a cheap dyno headlight, though the shipping offset that somewhat. Arrived quickly and well-packaged. No complaints.
