PostPosted: Wed Oct 10, 2018 4:26 pm    Post subject: Techart Springs - Group Buy Reply with quote

To follow on from Mike's (AKA Thefinn) previous group buy end of last year....

As coming to that time of the year very soon again (Christmas) Smile ,then have contacted Phil from "tech9" about another group-buy. He sent us the following below, will let this run for 2 weeks or so.. but basically more we get the the bigger the discount.

At the end you just call Phil and hand over the details and he will do the rest:


Fits OE dampers 20mm ride height lowering (vehicles with PASM 15mm)

Techart Spring Kit spring set now retail at £423.60 inc VAT and carriage

Based on 3+ Orders:
The previous group buy was based on 3+ sets, and a 12% discount was applied, this would mean I could supply at £373.92 inc VAT and carriage each set (based on the -12%).


Based on 5+ Orders:
I’ll do them at £355 inc VAT and carriage

(*The group buy would apply to any (non GT3) 997 model, C2/C4/Turbo etc )


I'm after a set:

1.. John997
2.. --997--
3.. keendean
4.. Blooders
5.. SJD
6.. Myasinax
.

I’m tempted - anyone know how much fitting at an Indy would cost?
Are these ok with 7/15 spacers on a c4s?
Is a full geo/allingnent needed after?
Cheers

Hi james, with the sapcers you go it would benefit more as regards to looks its good for C2S and C4S, in my opinion and am sure everyone else would vouch is that they are the best springs to go for and the lowering is just right!! As phil says once before that a full geo allignment would benefit for road handling. Fitting lowering springs wont be much as all depends on an individual indy.... am sure someone on the forum could let us know if their experiance..

Cheers

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!

Hi John,

Yes i did read it, i was assuming that perhaps 10+ would bring down the price again, etc, that was all Dont know

i used H&R on my gen1 (think they were 25mm) and it was a little too much in terms of scraping the aero front lip...

Are you down at Goodwood tomorrow ?

cheers

Darren

Hiya Darren,

TBH mate, thats all he gave us above. If by chance we did hit 10, then for sure I will get back and if they can reduce it further - good if we could.

I have an exam next week, 3 yearly recertification and need to get my head in the books Sad so I wont be there Darren.

Cheers, John

Just a quick note, if we do get it down to £355 inc VAT and Carriage or Lower with more forum members interested then thats great ill be 100% interested but if we dont make the numbers to get it to that price then i dont think ill be in on it for anymore money then stated, as i wont fitting them tell next year some time with new suspension. No pont me having paid almost full price for them to be sitting in my garage.. if that makes sence.. as circumstances could change in between and dont wanna be loosing money for any reason..


Cheers..
