    Afternoon guys, Well i've been looking into a group buy for the RNS-E and the cheapest place is eBay.

    Theres a guy on there who will sell to us if we buy 5 from him for £430.

    This seems to be a fair bit cheaper than what they go for on eBay.

    So, anyone interested in joining me?

    Cheers

    No way is that the MY10, not on your nelly mate.

    £430 isnt bad as they're usually £500 upwards & £600 or more for the chrome versions, but given thats for 5 then should be a discount huh.

    I think you would be very lucky to get one for less than a grand.

    They will be pre-chrome tbh & MY10 would be 1-1.2k if lucky to find one, even more.

    Hi, to confirm, its the 2009 model, and he does have some with chrome buttons which he said will be £30 more. But, i have got him down to £420 per unit now.

    I would be very cautious with this, make sure you test each one beforehand, with pin numbers etc, also UK collection I hope, cause 2k is alot of dough to lose of other peoples money mate.

    Yeah it would be cash on collection, and yeah, deffinaely wouldn't leave until each one tested. If anyone is near London who is interested in one also, feel free to come along.

    Yeah possibly, where do these people get a steady source from i wonder, cause i've spent the last 2 days looking for somewhere i could buy a load from, ie straight from Japan where they are made, but i havn't found a single supplier.

    It's hard to dismiss the idea they're stolen. They're all second hand for a start, and I'm pretty sure there's less Audi's going to the breakers with RNS-E in them than there are RNS-E units turning up on the bay. Mine came from a guy in Europe somewhere...

    Yeah alot are from Lithuania and Poland, not sure why as they're not made there. Well if anyone finds a direct supplier let me know

    You wont get a direct supplier mate, contracted to audi solely I should think & they wont be allowed to sell seperately as an aftermarket unit, no way Jose imho, blaupunkt makes them dont they or did.

    yeah thats what i was thinking, but surely places like HAzzyDayz must have a supplier to supply such a demand, and all their products are new

    I'm sure they're not knowingly selling them. But who's to say where their supplier is geting them from?

    I'm sure there are suppliers, but these are second hand units. The only sources can be scrapyards and thieves.
