    sorry so VAT needs adding the the wheel price or it's included? I need to get the calc out again.

    So my calcs say £540.60 for 17x8 delivered. Similar to the rimstock deal except we only need 12 people.

    Believe yuo need to add VAT on top; although Mike's woring of "all above +VAT" isn't clear - I can't imagine he's knocked 20% off though - so I would assume add VAT to those prices. Best thing is we only need 12 people, yes, and it's a couple quid cheaper lol

    Yup, confirmed that VAT DOES need to be added. Also, Mike says he can't do anything else on the price if we get more than 12 people. So looks like this is the best deal so far just because we need less people. So, what do other people think?

    Can Mike give any idea on timings from ordering to wheels being made and distributed? I kind of need some pretty quickly. If they are going to take a while I may just go solo. If not, I'm in:

    Thanks for all the hard work in this thread but I really can't see us getting 12 people together. I've only seen maybe 5 really interested members.

    Shame we can't get this deal on seperate orders.

    I've got my eye on some other wheels as a cheap backup for my up coming track days so I might revisit the TD idea another time. If we have enough for 12 then I'm still in.

    hmm - alright boys, can we have a quick round-up to see who is still interested? Just to summarize - AwesomeGTi have matched rimstocks offer but onyl need 12 people to seal the deal. Who's in? So far me and Westy

    Other thing is the elad time from awesome is 4 weeks - maybe too long for us. Munch, what's the lead time from rimstock direct?

    right, apologies for the lack of comunication the lat week, ipad has gone up the swanny so had no internet.

    I had an email from andy at rimstock yesterday, hes been keeping an eye out on the forum about all the interest and worry about the price.
    To cut a long story short, he had offered us for 20 orders, the max 45% discount. But upon seeing awsome offering the same offer for less people, he has decided to pull out. Not that we were going to, but hes not in it for a bidding war.

    So, looks like if we want these wheels, awsomegti is going to be the place of choice.

    Now due to unforseen circumstances, my wallet has taken a bashing and as mot and tax is due on the a3 within the next few weeks, and i know its going to need some bits. Im going to have to postpone my interest in the group buy. Unless i can shift this punto gt engine and the rest of my punto collection.

    ooof, sorry Munch. Hope me involving AwesomeGTI didn't damage any of your relationships at rimstock...really sorry if it did, didn't mean that to happen!

    So far we then have 4 confirmed people for the Awesome deal. C'mon guys, we need more people involved otherwise I'll have to tell Mike from Awesome that unfortunately it won't happen

    I suspect its more that Rimstock didnt want to be seen dealing direct and undercutting one of their dealers tbh.

    just not enough people eager to actually put the money down and go for it. Plenty of people put down specs for their wheels, but when push comes to shove only like 4 or 5 of us were willing to go ahead. A shame, i'll need to get some wheels from elsewhere

    I've been pining after the Pro Race 1.2 for ages - I will get some one day I'll just have to pay more. sob sob!

    It's just one of those things ain't it. sometimes group buys work out sometimes they don't. It's understandable why this would be a difficult one.

    Appreciate people putting their time in to try and make it work though.

    Had to tell Mike that unfortunately it wasn't going to happen. Thanks for the input guys, sorry it didn't work this time around.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for all the effort guys. A group buy of this size and price was always going to be difficult to get off the ground.

    I obviously skipped a bit, although reading through it doesn't directly say a group buy isn't happening, but no problem thought it might be worth a shot.
