If you can't afford 1k a month, I'm sure you don't have 10k sitting around either... Can't afford it? Move along. I personally think that's an amazing deal! Too bad I can't justify spending any more money on my car (I have other expensive hobbies to tend too lol)

Actually, if you think about it. Alot of non-M are young generation who don't have that kind of money to cover it monthly would probably won't think twice about this and only able to cover the 1st month, and after 2nd month come. Problem arise. Since non-m car is already cheap as is, its afordable by the parents.

Young generation would abuse this deal and probably Fuk up their credit.

Hey VF,

I have to say... you are taking a BIG CHANCE when it comes to payments....
Please do understand if you've taken any accounting courses that your recovery of something outstanding after 3 months will be hard. You have the best chance to recovery 80% of your outstanding balance within 3 months of something and after that... it really depends on the case.

I applaud you for making these kits "affordable" but if I were you I'd just get someone to pay it right out. Less hassle, and less fee's. With

no paperwork
... its kind of hard to say to someone you owe this much without proof.

And no credit check... I'm don't think that's a good idea either without getting some background or atleast knowing something about your clients before you sell them a product that expensive. Because potentially you can be out 6K or more.

Just expressing my opinion.

And lastly to answer your question...

YES, YOU GUYS A NUTS! lol

Thanks,
Steve

Remote Satellite Kill Switch to enforce payment imo.

On the press of a button, open the wastegate permanently or something to disable boost and put a 500% increase in parasitic drag. When they call to figure out why....

I have never taken a single accounting course except the one offered @ The School of Hard Knocks, but I have to agree w/you 100%...they are nuts. But, hey, I wish them luck!

I'm tempted to say that the people who REALLY know how to manage their cash flow paid cash for their VF kit, but it's not my ass on the line. You did your homework, so hopefully it works out for you.

Quick math in my head follows something like this:

They need cash infusion. These kits' "break even points" are lower than you might expect, so even if some don't pay all of the money they will still make out ahead. Let's say 20% of the populous screws them, they get $1,000 from all of them, 60% make "most" of their payments and 20% make all of their payments. They still get more $ than it costs to make 'em.. it keeps people employed and parts are moving out the store. That's better than stuff sittin' on the shelf.. especially in this "new economy" we find ourselves.

Anyways, I agree with the "if you can't pay with cash you probably shouldn't be doing it anyways" crowd. But heck, to each their own.

Oh.. btw VF guys... I'm still waiting on the first oil change oil that was supposed to ship with the product. It has to get done this week so I hope it shows up soon. :-)

Cheers.

That's the key. I don't think it will work otherwise.
