      Here is what he came back with:

      1-10sets $390
      10->sets $370

      Prices include shipping and the harness. Does NOT include the dongle which I believe is another $30.

      If you get 15 people I will beat him up to drop the price more.

      Please start a list of people who are interested at these prices:

      Let me check on a couple of those questions: Blacked out lights, price of dongle, and for eurotuned the double shipping question.

      I am currently negotiating with a different German dealer who will beat this price by at least $20 for 10 sets. I will have to ship to my address and then to each buyer. When I finalize the cost, I will post it.

      Wouldn't the $20 then be moot since we would have to pay for shipping from your place?

      That price includes an estimated $20 shipping from my house. I will front the cash if i have enough interest. Any cost over $20 for shipping from FL will be additional. Negotiations should be done within a couple of days.

      Let me know what there final price is because we can use them against each other. BKS is normally willing to beat anyone on price.

      Not in theory or practice. He is only beating it by an estimated $20. The box that the lights ship in is pretty large, so $20 might not cover the return shipping.

      What is the actual cost pre-shipping that this other guy is offering?

      BKS wants $320 + $50 for shipping.

      Is the $50 for shipping the same for shipping to Canada?

      I am waiting to hear back, but as I recall from the last group buy that $50 covers shipping to Canada. If I remember, the only issue might be customs getting into Canada, but looking through the last thread it appears they did not have to pay them.

      Final price if I purchase the ten and ship to forum members will be $335 via paypal which includes $20 toward shipping within CONUS from FL.

      Remember, bks had huge issues with shipping delays with each person waiting 1-5 months for delivery. Having them all shipped to me is better and then it would be 4-5 days max after that. Also, I'm the one taking the liability. No need to pay me until I have product ready to ship.

      I am still awaiting final word on expected shipping date from Germany before I pay for the 10 sets. Unfortunately only 9 are available since one is for me. I really don't want to front any more money. If this works out well, maybe either I or someone else will do it again.

      Price break on getting multiple sets shipped to me?

      Dr. Chill, that is a killer price.

      I am checking with BKS to see if he can beat that price. Yes there was a delay, but absolutely no one waited 5 months. Longest I recall was 1.5 months after payments only because he shipped them by sea.

      Is your vendor including the harness and needed dongles?

      Price includes kufatec adapter. Dongles are extra. I would probably look around on the forum as the dongles are easily shared. Didn't inquire on dongle price.
      If there are 8 people interested, then I would be happy to allocate more than one per person. This is not a done deal yet.
      I know if one forum member who waited for 5 months, and others who didn't receive adapters with their set from bks. I personally would not buy from them.
      As soon as I know more I will post it.

      Since parts are German, I don't think Canadians will have any problems with shipping. I bought my lights from BKS on eBay and got them in 8 days, no extra fee's or anything.

      Customs within canada will be a hit or a miss. I think anyone wanting to go with the group buy should realize that there can possibly be a fee. Regardless it will be on the buyers end and not through the shipper. Plus figuring they value the lights at 400$. The fee wont be much.

      If the price is 335 shipped i think this would be best route. If you can inquire about the dongles as well too see how much extra on the 335 they want that would be great. I personally would like the dongle included in the package.

      Which forum member? I am the one who organized the GB and no one noted that they waited 150 days for their lights. Seems you have a vendetta against BKS, haha. If your vendor is interested we are trying to get a couple other group buys together for sline springs and RS3 wing, let us know.

      maybe we can all save some cash if we do a big group buy.

      Anyway, BKS can't beat the price, so I would move ahead with Dr. Chill.

      Well I'm down on whichever list takes off first. Got my tax return and it's burning a hole in my pockets. Keep us posted chill. I'm sure everyone on the list is all for the lights a the discounted rate regardless of where It comes from.
