[up]Would anyone be interested in a group buy for Carbon Fiber iPhone cases? They are freaking sweet! I just purchased one and it looks so damn good sitting in my car with the Carbon Fiber trim accents. The carbon weave looks almost identical to the Audi OEM carbon pieces.

www.droconcepts.com

REAL CARBON FIBER!!

OKAY, TO GET 25% OFF JUST GO TO www.droconcepts.com and enter coupon code avantsrule at time of check out. Thanks!

Not sure, I'll have to ask. I think we would need at least 10 people to get the price down. Each one is hand made.

Does not have a belt clip. It fits in the pocket nicely with its slim design.

Id be down if the price got down to $20, lol, cause its just going to scratch and look bad after a month or two. I have a rubber back/corner edge case on my 3g right now and it barely made it any thicker, and have a screen protector on it, shipped from Japan for $9 shipped... quality and fitment is perfect.... plus it doesnt scratch.

On a serious note, whats the rate if 20 buyers?

Ordered mine last night and it shipped out today. Btw, USPS tracking is notoriously slow. It usually only updates at the end of each day, and it won't say where or when it will arrive. I can't believe I just dropped 70 clams on an iPhone case. So much for being thrifty during these rough economic times [:p]

Hey Sideshowbob, pm me the email you used and I'll get in contact with the owner. Luckily they're based out of Indiana and I've ridden w/him. We should be able to get to the bottom of it.
