    H.I.D possible group buy?

    If I arranged a group buy for sets of HID's (you pick the fitment and tempature) and a set was less than £50, would anyone be intrested?

    Nothing is arranged much atm im just speaking to a few sellers atm and trying to see if its worth while starting a group buy or just buying myself a set,

    any views/comments welcome

    (if a mod wants to move this to the group buy section thats fine, i just wasnt sure if it should be in there yet as nothing is finalised)

    I'd be interested, possibly in two sets for dip and main. Definitely at least one though.

    IMO if the kits were a decent quality and the price <£50 I don't think there'd be too much bother getting a few people together.. I for one would be interested apart from the fact HID's are quite a bit further down on the "To Do" list and I have more pressing things to pay for. Any future group buys though and I may be better placed to join in

    ah, thats why im trying to find cheaper, they can be got for £50 easily from US EBAY (assume thats where you've seen them?) but trying to find a decent supplier who can do cheaper,
    thats my main reason for is there any point in a GB over just buying them direct yourself, but one reason for is the amount of people who dont use ebay or know to look on the US one,

    Yeah thats the buyer I ordered mine off a few days ago, with Paypal's not quite so good currency rate they were £48 in total.

    The problem is once you have got them, you then need to pay for postage onto other members, which could cost more than you have saved from buying in bulk - unless they will give you a decent postage price.
