    Ok, not really looked into this kind of thing before but here goes.

    Would anyone be interested in a set of Bilstein B8's and Eibach Springs for £685 inc vat plus postage??

    Haha I've just agreed to a price Vagtech put to me for B8s and Eibachs, LLLLAAAAMMMEE!

    I may struggle with H&Rs - I may be wrong but I've been told that Eibachs are a better spring.

    I cant remember off the top of my head It was as near as makes no difference to dpm's advertised prices, £645 iirc (ive since realised that DPM do a forum discount) but for piece of mind and the sake of a few quid I was happy to go with Vagtech

    I'll go back a do some more negotiating with the supplier then as it didn't realise Damian was sooooo cheap. HR springs are £215 on his site so I don't know how much I could get them for. Let me have a look :0)

    where were you looking at getting it all from?

    Damian @ DPM is currently doing H&Rs for ~ £186 (discounted), think its price matched to Awesome

    As mentioned we already do the Bilstein B8s and Eibach springs for cheaper without the GB and I'm sure we'd be able to beat any other price as well if we had enough people.

    I was thinking about changing to H&Rs from Eibachs but JoJo's thread convinced me not to.

    We already do the B8s and Eibachgs for £660 all in but if we had 10 people I'm sure we could do them a little cheaper again.

    I would be interested in a group buy with the dampeners with H+R's although looking at your web site (DPM) the springs seem to be going for a good price!

    B8 + H&R setup is gooood. I dont have the compressed springs situation like in the link above but then I fitted my springs the other way round.

    If we get 5 people I'm sure we'd be able to beat that quote but any one interested just let us know.

    Do you think you'd be able to get it below £600 Damian?? If so, I'd be very interested

    Ideally guys, you would want to negotiate in private as opposed to being on an 'open' forum. I'm sure Damian can start an official group buy elsewhere if he so wishes.

    Sounds good Dan but I think I'm going to go with the Eibach option which is meant to be a little more comfy and cheaper :)

    We'd need 5 people at least all wanting the same springs and then we can get the ball rolling.
