Can anyone host a group buy on the Caractere front bumper, the North American version.

North America Motorsports (http://www.namotorsports.net/detail.cfm/part_cd/CA37-910) has the cheapest among any other site but $800 is still a little high.

Anyone wanna join?[up]

Depending on the final numbers and what kind of discount we are looking at, I would be in. I'm in the neighborhood for a new front bumper anyway, after my recent snowy day accident.

id be interested if it was a reasonable discount. are all caractere bumpers the same style?

Maverick
02-03-2008, 11:22 AM
what's an reasonable discount for you?

yes, same style for all B6.

02-03-2008, 11:24 AM
that would depend on how many people. id say if we got 10 people, maybe 15 percent or more

Maverick
02-03-2008, 11:30 AM
yeah, 15% is usually tough. but so far we have like 3 include you, the other person and I.

Maverick
02-03-2008, 11:40 AM

I wonder what paint and install costs?

Maverick
02-03-2008, 12:22 PM
install you can do it yourself it's not hard
paint, i'd say around 300

Maverick
02-03-2008, 03:00 PM

I would also be in depending on price. But I'm going to be cautious since we as a forum have tried several times to get this front to no avail.....

I hope you can do it!

Maverick
02-04-2008, 06:53 PM
thanks, one more in. 3 to go

easy killer....like I said, my decision is based on the discount you can get.

Maverick
02-04-2008, 08:25 PM
please dont do that but i know you are being realistic. I am being very very optimistic about this. I need at least 10 people to get this thing started then it's up to the rest who follows through.

i would hate to be another person on this "maybe" list.
but i'm a dedicated buyer-- depending on the price
btw, how much will shippping cost?

absolutegtr
02-05-2008, 07:00 AM
Why dont you contact the vendor and ask how much the discount will be? Then you wont have these "maybe" people....

anyways, bump for a very nice bumper (would be nicer with no indent for a euro plate)

Maverick
02-05-2008, 10:31 AM
i know what you mean. i am doing my best. hopefully to have the pricing soon

mioStile
02-05-2008, 11:58 AM

Please check witht NAMotorsports to see on the discount.

ONLY 2 MORE NEEDED FOR THE GROUP BUY!!!!

VERY RARE AND EXPENSIVE BUMPER FOR CHEAP! I want this to happen so badly.

Maverick
02-05-2008, 04:07 PM

anyway, waiting to hear from a important person.

Maverick
02-07-2008, 08:08 AM

Maverick
02-10-2008, 09:47 AM

mioStile
02-11-2008, 05:17 PM
so, did you hear????????

EuroTrA4sh
02-11-2008, 11:53 PM
any word on shipping costs and final price?

Maverick
02-12-2008, 01:38 PM
ok gangs, i will have to wait to hear from them again.

right now, to ship 10 bumpers over seas will kill the deal. so I am waiting to hear how much will it be by ship which can take like 2-3 months.

what do you guys think? care to wait?

mioStile
02-12-2008, 04:08 PM
ABSOLUTELY!

Most people probably won't even want to put the bumper on until the snow/rain season changes. We will NOT let this fall through. :)

Maverick

the thing is, the Caractere company does things so damn slow. it makes me like a 100 year old man. hopefully to hear about it next week.

Clint, are you interested in S4 front? OEM

pm me about those stuff

w3fl3x
02-18-2008, 10:32 PM
Any update? Can you pm me once you get the info?

Anthony

Please note, the GB must be run through/by an Official Audizine Advertiser. So please be sure to get all of those ducks lined up in a row, Maverick.

Maverick
02-26-2008, 08:03 PM
Thanks Anthony.
I do have an Official AZ advertiser in my back but damn Caractere is not respond to emails.
I have all the ducks but missing the Caractere duck lol

I don't see why you can't just ask them what the discount would be for 10 or 15 people? I'd say I was in but that would be a lie because it's only depending on the price..

manny6i9
03-04-2008, 03:06 PM
count daddy in!!!

they look very similar to oetty bumpers

Maverick

I don't see why you can't just ask them what the discount would be for 10 or 15 people? I'd say I was in but that would be a lie because it's only depending on the price..

every company i called and my vendor called, they say the shipping is ridiculous because they are from overseas. more bumpers shipped will be multiply on shipping.

I am trying and my vendor is trying to ask how much it will be with shipping them here. However, damn Caractere is not on top of their business, they don't reply to emails.

Is this still going on? If it is i might be interested depending on the price.

Someone was right...lol. Guess this is finished and no other vendors are willing to hold a gb on these bumpers, right???

05-20-2008, 05:03 PM
bump again.... i really want this front NA is 800 and lltek is 877.

Shipping to me in Canada would factor in too.

Let's get a vendor in on this - PF Cafe? Who's an authorized dealer?

Gondi Stylez
05-20-2008, 05:06 PM
I've asked PerfCafe. Let's see.

I talked to JB this morning and he is looking into this for us. He seems optimistic as do I. I really hope this works out! All I need is the Caractere front and roof spoiler [up]

Good to talk to you Aman! Still finalizing the bits from Charactere to even see if we can get these in a great enough number. I'll keep you boys updated!
