    Hi All,

    I'm goning to try and revive this Group Buy just wanted to gauge interest...

    I have already contacted one of the shops "TT SHOP" to try and get upto date prices as this was started last year.

    I have a good feeling if we can get 10 people "or more" we could save quiet abit.

    so as it stands the list is

    S3 baby



    Please add your name if your interested.

    LOL, this one always goes down the pan! Everyone wants a Haldex Performance Controller, but no one wants to fork out the price to get one, even discounted!

    Mate I'm already paying for insurance, service, and turbo refurb this month, on top of a set of adjustable tie bars I bout 2 weeks ago. If this group buy actually gets going and the price is cheap enough I'll bang it on my card as I don't want to miss out on a good deal.

    The whole point of the card is it's there for emergencies, which this is ;)

    Anyway enough of my finances.........

    Right guys,

    This is good stuff so far were looking at 14 peeps interested.

    I've spoke to the following

    TT Shop
    Awesome
    JBS
    AMD - there not interested in doing a group buy for this item.....

    I'm waiting for them all to get back with a price, will keep you posted.

    I have also found the main UK importer of Haldex controllers so I will be giving them a call today. might be able to get hold of them even cheaper because the middle man won't be taking a cut.

    any way interested list as follows

    I've managed to get hold of the distributor's number in sweden who i will give a call abit later. see if we can get 20 units shipped over.
    but here's the first email/price form ttshop.. not a bad offer TBH.
    Hi,
    Thanks for your email.

    Just to clarify, we are the UK distributor for Haldex – so the best price will always come from us.

    I have been able to sort out a good price for the group buy, we will need a minimum of 10 members to achieve a group buy price.
    I will have to put a closing date of 30th June 2011 @ 5:30pm

    50% deposits will be required, via Debit or Credit card.

    Retail price of the Performance Controller is £690 Inc VAT, I can offer (for 10+ members) these at £585 Inc VAT – Saving £105 Inc VAT each!

    Delivery is per unit, for UK addresses (to registered card holders address) £9.99

    Let me know if you need further info – or if you have any questions.

    Regards,

    Hopefully direct from Haldex in Sweden will be even cheaper.
