    Thread: Another LED taillight group buy from BKS?

    1. 02-24-2012 08:34 PM #76
      So are we going with Dr.Chill and his Source or with Rawaudi and BKS ?

      I would go with Dr. Chill based on price alone.

      BKS has them in stock and is ready to ship. They would post a link with a special group buy code and then each person would pay individually rather than paying a single person to make payment.

      The best price BKS could give was $325 + $99 shipping to one person who would then reship them out to everyone else, so figure $335 + shipping whatever the additional cost is to ship to people stateside.

      I would wait to see what Dr. Chill says.

      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:

      1.
      2.
      3.
      4.
      5.
      6.
      7.
      8.
      9.
      10.

      so its not 390-370? idk cuz BKS can get everyones shipped. Dr Chill was saying he can get 10 so some people would be left out.

      If I can fit each box into a usps priority mail large box, the shipping in CONUS will be $15, so the total price would drop to $330!

      I just checked my pm's. The forum member who didn't receive his lights for 5 months may not have been in on the last group purchase. He just said that his order from early August had not been received last I heard from him in late December.

      I don't have anything against BKS, other than some issues that are well documented in the last group purchase, and the higher price. The seller I am dealing with has 99.5% positive feedback on Ebay Germany out of almost 100,000 feedbacks.

      Price is great but can you find out how much extra it would be to ship 1 set to Toronto Canada. I believe there are a couple other people from Canada in on this as well.

      My zip is 33418. You can estimate shipping as well as I can. Estimate 6 or 7 pounds and 18 x 12 x 5 inch box (Sheer guess as I haven't ordered the lights yet). Fedex or USPS.

      If it is Tuning Fanatics then they are a good group to work with. I have used them for GBs before and everything went well.

      You may have a hard time getting them in a large priority box, just depends on the amount of packing materials used. GL

      Order placed. Unfortunately the exchange rate for my cc is higher than quoted on google finance. Price will likely come in at $340 delivered. I asked for a few dongles as well if they could be thrown into the deal. We can all share these.

      Yes, this is with tuning fanatics shop. Try to be patient. I will post pics when they arrive, hopefully by the third week of March. After they arrive I will pm the first nine on the list with my paypal address. If I do not receive payment within 48 hrs, I will pm the next on the list.

      I would not order any more from this vendor until my transaction goes well. Assuming it does, I will be happy to send anyone interested in doing this the contact info so they can repeat the process. If it goes very smoothly, maybe I'll do it again myself.

      If there are any questions regarding the lights, please post them in this thread rather than send me pm's.

      If we reach another 10 people (#11-20). Do you think we can do another order perhaps? I didn't know the first 10 people were going to order the tail lights right away. Planning to get some tail lights with my tax return.
