Thinking to get economy of scale, perhaps we can extend the group buy to other LR makes, and other HD parts such
as rear bumper and rock sliders (get at least 10 buyers and shot to get 10-20%+ discount).
Thinking of approaching RTE, Terrafirma, or other manufacturer willing to; could also take the list to Rovers North,
Atlantic British, Lucky8 or other distributors willing to offer us a group discount.
And to add to the savings, the vendor must be willing to shipping all orders into one business address.
(I need to confirm with Colin if his new shop will be ready by the end of May). Let's show Colin our support
and bring him some business - he will be a proud new Independent Auto Repair Shop owner in Walnut Creek.
Anyways, post if you are interested in a group buy for (big ticket item over $300): 1) what product(s) e.g. front winch bumper, rear bumper
and rock sliders include 2) brand or brands you'd be interested in, 3) Land Rover make, 4) location (e.g. Sacramento
to gauge logistics) 5)and timing (when do you need them).
Requirement: group buy is only avail to paid club members, commitment to the group buy, once we arrange it, each participant will call the vendor directly and settle
your bill, and share of shipping. Once all orders are paid and ready for shipping to a business address, we schedule
the pick, install (Colin or group install) and enjoy your upgrade.
Let me start:
1) Front Winch Bumper
2) Terrafirma although I'd consider a RTE Wideface front winch bumper
3) 04 Discovery II
4) East Bay
5) Flexible with timing - I can get it now or wait till Summer
We did something similar with BajaRack and I saved about $300 from the discount, shipping and group install; even
got our photo on the front page of BajaRack: http://www.bajarack.com/racks
