Title: Quaife Diff group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 22, 2012, 12:04:38 pm
Just getting this started to get number's. Already emailed them and will be calling quaife tomorrow to get details on numbers needed and what discount we will get.

If your serious about getting one then stick your names down on here as im sure the more we can get the better this discount would be. If we cant get enough i will ask around other forums.

TSR sell them at £639 incl vat with £12 postage so direct from quaife should be a lot cheaper. Hopefully these will be in the region of £550.

James - if they can do a better discount if a company sets a trade account up with them, then let me know and we can do it through PPP.

Not entering the group buy - but as a Quaife owner, this will make a lot of difference to your car, but in a good way! It's just as easy to drive as standard, but without lighting up the inside wheel all the time. Worth the investment! 8)

Ok got an email from quaife and phoned them. Not really that great prices but still saving some money.

They said:

Hello
 
Thank you for your enquiry, I can confirm that if you wish to order a
baulk buy from ourselves I can offer:
 
10 people = 10%
15 people = 15%
20 people = 20%

So at £595 plus vat and £10 postage that would be £714. We can probably get 10 so that would make it £71.40 discount and total would be £642.60 plus £10 postage. Same price as what TSR sell them so really unless we can get like 20 people there is no point of doing this.

Andy, they said trade is only a 5% discount and we are better off with a group buy.

Have sent an email to TSR already and Im gonna speak to them tomorrow and see if they can do a deal with us as they are £639 plus £12 postage but i can pick these up.

If TSR cant do a good discount i will post this on club polo and see what response we get from them.

I think Andy means they might do some better group buy rates for a trade company.  So giving it a wild stab in the dark, you might get another 5% off.  But I don't see how trade discount can only be 5%, surely TSR are selling at a loss then?  
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 23, 2012, 05:40:29 pm
I said to them if my friend sets up a trade account with you would it be better but he said only give 5%.

He said TSR might have done a bulk buy at some point and now selling them at a cheaper rate, although i do remember TSR selling all diffs at a cheaper rate a few months back. They did some big group buy i think.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: ereeiz on January 23, 2012, 07:04:09 pm
I'm surprised that there's 7 people on the list already! Not bad for 24 hours or so!

If we get to 20 then it's basically VAT free! :D
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 23, 2012, 09:47:26 pm
Yeah, once i have herd from TSR i will make a decision and see if we can put this on club polo as im sure we can get a lot more.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 24, 2012, 09:49:47 am
Her from TSR this morning and they replied:

Hi James,
 
Yes I will be able to sort you out a deal for sure I have a order with Quaife at the minute so please let me know and I can try to tag it on to get the best deal.
 
Regards Rob
TSR Performance

So they are already cheaper than quaife direct. If we can get 3 more than i will say we want 10 then he can let me know how much they will be.

Is it worth a post on Club GTI to get the numbers up?
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: hayesey on January 24, 2012, 11:44:24 am
I'd have thought you'd get a lot more interest on clubgti than on clubpolo!
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: PeteG40 on January 24, 2012, 12:10:28 pm
from thorsten at g-ladersiete.de  we have the following offer


10 Pieces: 799,- EUR

15 Pieces: 759,- EUR

20 Pieces: 719,- EUR

roughly 15-18 euro each to ship

this includesvat

so for 20 = £638 ish (1.15 euro to pounds- all depends on exchange rate we get tbh)

if 1.19 like some places = £616

Yeah i was ment to go on club gti, will do that now.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 24, 2012, 03:26:43 pm
So really TSR are the best place. I will ask him now how much he could get 10 for.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on January 24, 2012, 03:47:29 pm
TSR have said

Hi James,
 
Potentially £575 but I will need to double check I can add them on to my order or our discount will be less.
 
Regards Rob
TSR Performance

So if we can get 3 more then thats quite a good discount.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: SamG40 on January 24, 2012, 03:50:26 pm
I would be potentially interested depending on when you would need the funds and the final price.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: dekerf1996 on January 24, 2012, 04:36:53 pm
Hmmm interested, but would need to know payment times and arrangements before i could commit
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: randombadger69 on January 30, 2012, 12:05:16 pm

3 more deffo's and we will be good to order.

I am interested, but it's difficult to commit to when details are vague....

Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on February 01, 2012, 12:15:53 pm
what details you want then?
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: AlexG40 on February 01, 2012, 12:37:02 pm
Need a firm price, TSR have only stated a Potential price. Personally that gives them too much leeway for me to commit.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: ereeiz on February 01, 2012, 08:52:11 pm
Do you have any idea how long it'll take Jezza?
I want to be on the road in 4-5 weeks from now (beginning of March) so I'll have to get one separately from the group buy if it'll be 2 months lead time or whatever it may be. I can't imagine they're sitting on a shelf somewhere and have no idea how long it takes to manufacture something like this?
Might just have to bit the bullet and pay extra :( Unless I can arrange more exciting transport than a Corsa diesel. I want to kill myself daily in that car.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on February 01, 2012, 09:03:18 pm
Ok i will call rob tomorrow and say we got 10 and what price incl vat and postage will be.

I will have to buy them all and take payments from everyone and send them just so you are aware.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: ereeiz on February 01, 2012, 09:10:23 pm
Cool, cheers! I can send/ paypal you the money whenever you like. Just PM me with details when you've got it all sorted  ;D
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: dekerf1996 on February 02, 2012, 02:16:02 pm
I am really interested, as stated but need full costs, and expected times for costs and delivery.

£600 is a fair commitment, and although I have it spare, I will need to juggle it with other part buying, hence the need to know timings of cash
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on February 09, 2012, 05:28:18 pm
Any news on this Jezza?
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy

Don't want to keep on, but any more info? I'm gonna have to pull out soon and buy one seperately if it's no further along.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on February 18, 2012, 10:37:54 am
Spoke to TSR this week and they put an order through for themselves and he said if i was do this group buy he would need at least 10% deposit then he will make the order. He wanted it this week and i know for a fact that everyone would not of had the money. I certainly didnt after spending a lot on my car for the mot.

Price though he said might of been around £550 but he would need an order to be placed before he got any exact prices. There pretty cheap from TSR anyway and i will be getting one later in the year once i sorted out my car.

Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: SamG40 on February 18, 2012, 12:29:53 pm
Well they are £595 on Quaife's website so thats £45 discount. Better than nothing I suppose.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: dub-disaster on February 18, 2012, 12:35:04 pm
the prices on quaife website are plus vat and carrige by the way

I'm not being funny with you, but rather TSR. But what kind of business model involves making someone place an order before you'll give them a price?
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: dub-disaster on February 18, 2012, 04:45:43 pm
I think that's more a case of actualy believing that this order is "real" as there must be alot of dreamers and talkers in the modified car buisness. There going to be cheaper than a single price which is pretty cheap already to be honest.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: AlexG40 on February 18, 2012, 05:58:55 pm
Yeah, there probably is but none of us would commit till we had a price, regardless of the fact that it would be cheaper. So I fail to see how they expect to get an order like that. I'd be giving a price per unit based on order quantities rewarding bigger numbers. Not asking you to place an order and then we'll tell you what it will cost.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on April 02, 2012, 07:36:02 pm
How many people are still interested in this with circa £600 ready to go?
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on April 03, 2012, 10:51:22 am
If we can get 10 people I can do the diffs for £595 - basically VAT free.

Still trying to work on a decent price for 5-off.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Jezza-7 on April 03, 2012, 07:28:51 pm
I would of said yes but my charger seals have just gone and got stung on import tax for the charger i bought.

I only gave up on this because it only seemed to be a few of us that want it and had money. and its a pain trying to organise it!

When you get closer to the time of deposit required let me know and i will probably found some money.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: ereeiz on April 03, 2012, 08:55:29 pm
I could just about stretch to that if it's in the next week or two. After that it'll be swallowed up by other things I'm afraid.

Now £570 if we can get 10 people. Any less and it's not really worthwhile.

We're getting there gents!

The leadtime on these is about a week from placement of order, so hopefully we won't be waiting for long once I've kicked things off. The bad news is the price might go up by a fiver or tenner as Quaife have just increased their prices, but I'll see what I can do!

Boom - that's the number we need! ;D

I'll kick this off in 2 weeks time as I'm just about to go to India with work, so this should give everyone a bit of time to get the cash ready etc.

I have spoken to the supplier and it's looking like £585 each will be the final price as Quaife have bumped theirs up, if I can negotiate any further discount now I've got final numbers I will! Payment will be in full up-front as the supplier require this and I can't afford to sub everyone in the meantime!

will the same diff fit a gt box and a g40 one? I know the original diffs are different with one having a bolt on crown wheel, but if it does I may be interested in getting one to run in my gt box until i get my hands on an g40 one to transfer it to.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on July 04, 2012, 10:44:54 pm
You need the bolt-on crownwheel. If you've got an AHD GT 'box then it's pressed-on, so can't take an LSD.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: SamG40 on July 05, 2012, 07:49:56 am
You will probably struggle to get one in a group buy again though so will have to pay full price in the future.

Yeah as Andy says, an AHD code GT is no good for a quaife. You'll need to have the CEH code GT gearbox iirc for your plan to work.

Will PM all the people on the list at the end of next week with payment details once I'm back in the UK and have confirmed final prices with Quaife.

Jezza - let me know if you want in on this. :)
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy

Will confirm final prices tomorrow if all goes to plan, so will be in touch with everyone.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on July 30, 2012, 05:16:20 pm
Chased again today for a final price, once I've got it I can start taking cash from people and get the order placed!
Title: Re: Quaife Diff Potential group buy
Post by: Andy on July 30, 2012, 06:14:17 pm
Final price is £585 each by the time I've collected them. That will be plus postage, unless you want to collect from me or meet at a show etc.

PLEASE CAN ALL INTERESTED PARTIES PM ME WITHIN THE NEXT 3 DAYS WITH THEIR FULL NAME, CONTACT NUMBER AND EMAIL ADDRESS.

I'll then email you bank details for the payment, and once everyone's paid we'll get the order placed as I need 100% payment upfront to order. Leadtime should be circa 2 weeks from the day I place the order.

They don't need machining, prior to fitting i would check the size of the shaft that the diff bearings sit on to ensure a press fit as a couple of people including me have had in correctly sized ones meaning that the bearing was too loose.
as for fittings its pretty easy realy although there is a guide if you have access to or know someone with a press it will be very helpful.

I've been told these are being packaged up to send to me! Once I've got one to package and weigh I'll let people know postage costs.
Seems I got some duff information whilst my main contact was out of the office... :( No diffs have been sent to me yet, as they wanted to ship the complete batch - and as per my earlier email to you all, they're having to do another production run to fulfill our order. An unfortunate side effect of us being slow in placing the order whilst everyone paid!

Should be getting a call back tomorrow to confirm delivery dates and postage costs, and will update you all again then.

Good news for people that missed this first time round is that there should be another few diffs available at the Group Buy price - I'll hold a 'reserves' list, and it'll be first-come first-served.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff group buy
Post by: Andy on September 25, 2012, 05:05:27 pm
9 diffs are ready for dispatch, waiting for confirmation on the remaining ones.

Postage on the diffs is £12 each. I'll email the first 9 people on the list for payment and their addresses, and we'll get them out to you.
Title: Re: Quaife Diff group buy
Post by: SamG40 on September 25, 2012, 09:22:24 pm

Just a quick reminder to those people who I emailed in the first 9 that they need to get in touch to arrange payment for postage if they've not done already.

If anyone's not arsed about getting theirs now, let me know as Priyesh in the December batch is in a hurry for his. (Sam - does your offer still stand?).

As per my earlier message, the December batch will have another 5 diffs in it also available at the Group Buy price, first come, first served. Please state your interest now:

Mine's getting fitted with a gear box service / check over at the same time - can't wait!

Anyone registed their diff on the Quaife web site to get the life time warranty? If so, what are the details for the following questions:

Order number?
Invoice number?
Purchase date?
Purchased from?

Andy, can you help with the above?

Just want to make sure there are no complications later on in case there are problems with the diffin the future.
