Thumbs up IN!

Man am I glad I checked this forum! I was just about to order one...infact I still have Amazon, ThinkGeek, and one other order page open in my browser as I type this.

I PM'ed you. Personally I would like mine ASAP but obviously I will defer to the group.

Just to be sure, this is the kind with XGauge functionality built in, right?

Is there any way you could order the full batch now, and then send out for those who are ready now, and then hang on to the one(s) that only want them later?

I also would like to throw this idea out there: let's say you have 10 committed purchasers, 8 ready now, 2 ready in May. You order, say, fifteen, and send out the 10 at the original price. There are bound to be others who will crop up, and you could charge them a higher amount to cover your risk and carrying costs, but still have it be a better deal than $160.

I think that's fair as people with "seniority" on the board and/or better preparation get the best deal. Those who come later still get a good deal, and you are compensated for the extra hassle and for fronting the money.

Then again you could just have a "revolving" group buy where each time ten buyers accumulate, you order a new batch.

I mention this because I think this site and ecomodding in general are taking off, so there's a big future for this kind of stuff.

BTW, how many commitments do you have? If you have less than 10, then maybe by May there will be enough for the lowest cost. I might even be willing to buy two if it comes down to nine verified purchasers, to make it ten for the lower price.

Lots of variables to consider, just kind of brainstorming here.

Go ahead and count me in, I just realized it can pull check engine lights too, so it's saving me the cost of a scanner too. I'll pm my info.

I'm not trying to be a jerky..

Heres my observation and by all means dont take any offense to this..

One thing to me is that your fairly new to this site (as am I, but thats not the point)
I dont know ya, you dont even have your location listed in your profile let alone ANY information about you in there.

See where I'm comming from?
At least on places like eBay you have feedback to
cast a judgment to see if you want to chance it and bid on their item hoping you get it..

Like I said, take no offence to what I'm saying, its just my observation..
Thanks..
