      Doesn't seem like they care much about selling these so I'm not caring much about buying them.

      Guys,

      This has been pretty disorganized and Im probably to blame.

      Just email me directly if you want this thing. Once we get a decent # I will post link for discounted pricing.

      You've got to be kidding? After all the non-responses followed up by promises to respond, leading to more non-responses???? I even emailed you directly, as requested, and guess what... no response.

      I am not sure how this hasnt been properly conveyed. I am also not sure how the emails and phone calls have not been answered. I do apologize though. I am a 1 man show and there is quite a bit going on. That said, the phone # you see posted in 14,000 posts on this site is my personal cell phone and I usually answer it.

      Please email me directly if you want to get in on this GP. The pricing was previously posted. Once we have 10, I will put up the product page and you can order direct off the site.

      In a world of customer service being important, I think all has given up on you and your dipsticks. Many tried and got tired. So moving along-).

      you need to look into your email provider then. i emailed you directly two months ago and never a word was heard.....
      at this point, you should offer up your GB price and let whoever wants to order, order. not make them wait until X number of people line up.

      You guys do not ship to Canada? I would buy it but it does not make sense because you charge $42 dollars for shipping. That costs more then the part and the dipstick is not that big so i can't understand why it would cost so much to ship.

      Ordered one of each. I hope they get here in less time than this group buy took.
      for making it easy... eventually.

      We do ship to Canada but it must go Priority, insured. Ive tried lots of other ways, UPS and Fed Ex charge courier and customs fees. USPS looses the package if I send any other way. Do you have a friend in the states who we can ship to?

      i went to install my billet dipstick on my 2.0t CCTA. the dipstick is about 1/2 inch shorter than stock.
      has anyone else installed one, is this right? i emailed gruvenparts about it, but no answer so far.

      This is idiotic. Yes I know this is harsh wording but....

      Each and every one of these things should be PERFECT! The whole PURPOSE of a dipstick is to check the oil level! If the the length is wrong, your OIL LEVEL will be wrong. This can be a bit of a problem, if you care about your engine health. Overfilling is just as bad as low oil level.

      IMHO its not worth it, no matter how cool it looks under the hood where no one will see it anyway.

      Spend the money on an extra oil change and filter.

      Audi is the girl who was really cute in high school, but now puts on way too much makeup in order to try and hang out with the hot girls.

      yup. doesn't seem too complex. again, one of these vendors touts a big sale/famiry purchase and the goods aren't right/don't work. especially after the way this one was so dragged out. glad i checked it before installing it.

      No problem with mine. The stock dipstick has a longer end but the High and Low markings are in the right place.

      P.S. I don't think the main point of this is looks... at least not for me. This replace the stock dipstick that will eventually deteriorate and pieces will break off and drop down the dipstick tube.

      yeah, i guess audi does have an issue with plastic holding up.... did they make the dipstick out of armrest latch/openskylatch grade plastic??

      Regarding wrong size dipstick sent, can you send me dimensions of your OEM dipstick ? This is odd (not saying impossible, just odd). There are many varieties of dipsticks, perhaps you have 1 that is different than ours. Can you tell me OEM part number?

      Not sure if you sent me an email or IM, I have not received it. Please just give me a call for faster service, my cell # is posted at the bottom of 14,000 threads so I am not tough to get in touch with, and we will get to the bottom of it.

      my dipstick broke, but not the part holding the metal rod, but the clip that clips it to the tube.

      i emailed to your paul@gruven...address. the part number is 06J 115 611 E. it is 54.5cm long, tip to collar. the item you sent has a tag with number WAB 20000. it is 52.5cm long tip to collar. there was also no nut for the end of the screw included with the replacement tube collar. no need for snide comments regarding your phone number. i am currently out of the country, so not likely to make an international call for this. i assumed your email would get to you and i also posted here.

      thanks
