Default Update: Group Buy on Tokico D specs

Hi guys!

I'm going to get some Tokico D specs and I contacted www.cvrmotorsports.com to see if they could possibly do a group buy.
(right now, they are $520 usd + $30 Shipping). I think that's a pretty decent price as i've been searching for a while.
He wrote me back and said the price would depend on how many people might be interested.
But at least he's open to it! At this point they are back ordered until mid next week.

So I'm just gauging interest here, since there seems to be a lot of discussion about suspension and what with track season coming up.

So, anyone who is in, sign up here, or PM me.

Also, if anyone's interested in Prodrive springs, let me know too, I might try and get a group buy going on those as well.

Ok guys, so here's the deal as of right now

Normal Pricing $550

1-5 People $539
6-10 People $525
11-15 People $505

Thats where it stands right now, but here is the deal. If you have
anyone confirmed, I will do this nationally and try to squeeze even
better pricing by adding more people from the forums, and Ill drop it
for you. Let me know if this works initially and if your guys are
ready to do this, and well get on it

Chris @ CVR




So anyone interested for sure, either sign up here or PM me: I'd like to have this settled by the end of the weekend.

If it is shipped via USPS airmail and not UPS/Fedex ground, count me in. I'm not paying a crap load of brokerage fees to get this though

I think Tokico are 02/03 style struts so it is not a direct swap for 04+ (need the washer mod).

Hmmm.. well i was originally thinking that this would be a Vancouver or local group buy. Just because it's easy for us to hop across the border and pick them up.

here's what their site says about shipping to canada

VR Motorsports will not ship internationally with the exception of orders destined for Canada. With regards to orders destined for Canada, CVR Motorsports is not responsible for taxes, duty, brokerage or any other type of fee imposed by our freight companies or local government(s). We will not declare any shipment for less than the purchase price of included product(s) nor will we ship via United States Postal Service.

I can find out how much it'll cost and how long it'll take and get back to you.

Thanks for posting their shipping policy. Don't worry about it, I think UPS charges somewhere around $150 for $600 worth of shipment.

On the other hand, I do have a friend in vancouver who can pick them up for me, and I'm coming over to the west coast for a road trip in a couple months anyway

XtremePsionic:

That sounds great! If your friend can pick them up, it'll save you a bunch. I think you may need to have his name on the package as well to pick it up if you decide to buy them.

I'm pretty sure 04's need to do a 02/03 tophat swap for it to fit... ask bman5.



KIMUTAKU: maybe you'd want to buy these anyway and then sell your KYB's after you replace them?

Nah, you can use your '04+ tophats with a spacer on top of the strut like this:

i'd be interested in this gb if there aren't any crazy brokerage fees to pay and if the price is right.

Not sure what you mean by brokerage fees.... I'm not keeping any for myself if that's what you mean. There will still be customs to deal with right, but that's the same as with any order. I figure if the vendor goes for it, we'll all order individually with a special code and pay on our own...

or else you can pay me cash and I'll rack up the airmiles! j/k

So far it's:

Spooled (possibly)
Extreme Psionic
myself
one other buddy...

This is looking pretty good! I think if we get a few more people in on it, we should be able to get a deal.


Anyone else? I'd like to order sometime this week.

the 520 US is BEFORE the deal or is that the deal?

I'm probably going to run these with my stock springs, anyone have any experience in terms of how well that's going to be?

Yannerd, $520 us plus 30 shipping is the price they are listed at. I'm trying to get a better deal than that, although that's the cheapest I've found anywhere so far.

Brokerage fees as in if the guy ships them cross the border using UPS/Fedex/DHL ground services.

For example, UPS just tried to charge $66 in brokerage fees for a $200 USD item. I just told them to send it back to the shipper, since I told the guy to ship with USPS (postal service), which would be like $5-10 more for the shipper but no BS brokerage charges when it gets to OUR doors.

Count me out if the guy will only ship via those courier ground services, if anything, I just dont' feel like paying UPS for their scams.

Update from the representative:

Phil,

Thank you and sorry for the late reply. Im working on this as we speak
to try and get you the most solid deal possible. We can access any
application of the DSPEC as long as it is not on backorder but several
shipments are landing within the next week. Where did you need these
shipped also? Do let me know, I will have something worked out by
tomorrow while I await some replies from our reps

Chris @CVR


XtremePsionic: so do you want to have them shipped to the states and have your buddy in Vancouver pick them up for you, or did you want them shipped to Calgary. Let me know ASAP as I would optimally like to place the order by the end of the week.

Thanks

They WONT fit an '05+ STi, your knuckle/hub size is different than the '02+ WRX and RS.

When the guy gets back to me with the price, I'll ask him how much to ship to Toronto if you are interested.

Anyone who is still interested could you please PM me?

Update to thread - prices as posted in red, please read bottom of first post! Thanks!

Just heard back, this is as low as they can do it for. Apparently Tokico has actually raised their prices to the dealer and so they have had to actively negotiate just to keep their prices as they have been. So no room for negotiation.

Anyone interested, please sign up asap....I'm going to order Monday or Tuesday.
