Just received an email from Phil at Tech9:

“We have your order and as soon as we collate everything, we will be in touch for payment and a delivery date.”

Looks like the ball’s rolling. Thumb

Update for all.

Firstly, had an email from Tech9/Phil his personal email account. Basically they had an email server issues which accounts for the lack of email updates etc.. to all.

Secondary, Tech9 just enquired about Blooders order but looks like this is now resolved.

Finally, with all orders received now they will be processed so you should hear something back soon, if you don't and you need a update then call Phil @ Tech9 and I am sure they will update you.

Cheers,
John

Its about 6 hours work to remove the shocks remove and refit the springs so bank on about £500 plus VAT depending on where you have the work done!

Ok just recieved an email from Tech9 regards the springs, not clear on how they want payment, direct to their bank as there is details or over the phone, also they need a copy of the letter in the email signed then either sent back by scan or photo!!

Cheers

It turns out Tech9 were only able to offer me a 6% discount to £355, saving me £25 versus the £68 saving for you 997 chaps.

My new lighter engine is still being fitted so the TechArt height reduction of 15mm (PASM car) would be a punt on getting the stance to look right. I might well need 30mm in which case the cheaper Eibach Pro-kit would be the answer. Question

Because of the above facts I have decided to hold off until I get the car back and can make a more informed decision on how much I need to lower it and have emailed to that effect.

Dont know Just how these things go I guess...

So for those reasons; I'm out bye

Received my email and letter today as well. No problem with signing it and paying by bank transfer to be honest as I’m not buying off some unknown on eBay.

What did make me shake my head was the usual issue of what makes up the UK raising its head yet again. It appears TNT believe Northern Ireland isn’t in the UK? Rolling Eyes Going with ParcelForce instead to keep the delivery charge at nil which ensures I benefit from the full discount. Over here we distinguish the other island with England, Scotland and Wales on it as the UK Mainland.......... Thumb

Not to worry.

Hi J,

Only applies to me over here in NI. TNT will deliver to mainland addresses without problem so you’re fine with Tech9’s courier choice. Unfortunately TNT wanted a considerable extra contribution to bring the springs across the water to my house so Tech9 have arranged to use ParcelForce in this instance which means there’s no extra postage cost.
