let us all fanatics compile a list of what items we'd like to be in group buys!

i'll start... these aren't necessarily what I WANT, but what I think would be popular amongst the fanatics:

1. Hamann brake ducts for M-TechII (CF / Painted )
2. ACS roof spoilers painted
3. Painted grills
4. CF Center caps
5. Hamann add-on lip for mtechII
6. Arqray add-on lip for mtechII
7. Rear add on for FACELIFT sedans


hope this thread doesnt fail. lol.

You know what I've seen more and more over the years?

A sponsor will set up a group buy, 50 people sign up to participate, 5 guys actually send in the cash. I remember back when I first started lurking here (and we had like three sponsors) when there was a group buy and people committed themselves, they meant it. So if sponsors are jaded and don't feel like going through the effort of getting a group buy going, I don't blame them.

That's just my lil' input, but maybe I'm just grumpy or something.

So in response, sponsors require a deposit which in turn lowers group buy participation. So in the end, less group buys happen. It also doesn't help that new products are no longer being made.

KW does not allow group buys. Last time when Khoa and I organized a KW group buy, we got reported and received a letter from KW
