Right no easy way to say this...

I've had a very near miss with a user on Ebay don't worry I worked it out in time, and I do still have all the money nice and safe.
The price I was given for each shock was £56.25 by who a person I thought worked at the GAZ factory in Basildon turns out the person I got the price from does not work at Gazzard engineering. This is the ebay listing and the user I have been talking to
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/14-open-Ga...-/321838404308
The address in the listing is correct as I went to the GAZ factory today and they had no idea who I was or what I was talking about, the good news is there is still a saving to be had over buying from Protech but it's not quite the same amount as I've posted.

GAZ can do each shock for £63 V's Protech equivalent which are £85.

Are the people that have paid still wanting the GAZ Gold Pro at £252 a set?
At the end of the day it's not my money to spend so I'm checking that the group that is buying it is happy to fork out another £27?

I would be up for protech, just thought I would mention it

These are the prices from the last group buy in January 2015 I believe

Hi all,

So I got some numbers from the guys at pro tech. Depending on exactly, how many people get involved in the group buy. The prices may go up or down a little. The prices do not include any form of shipping, it was proposed that I could collect all the shocks and post them out, or people can collect from me in the Manchester area for an extra saving.

1. 400 Series Single Adjustable, Bonded Bush ~ £75
2. 600 Series Single Adjustable, Bearing ~ £80
3. 600 Series Double Adjustable, bearing ~ £150
4. Spring ~ £20

All prices are for a single item.

Please can every one let me know what they think? If you are interested in getting involved in the group buy, I will need to know what you want so that the final numbers can be put together.

1. 400 Series Single Adjustable, Bonded Bush ~ £75 Plus VAT x4 = £360
2. 600 Series Single Adjustable, Bearing ~ £80 Plus VAT x4 = £384
3. 600 Series Double Adjustable, bearing ~ £150 Plus VAT x4 = £720
4. Spring ~ £20 Plus VAT

All prices are for a single item.
NeilW from here has already approached Protech about a discount for bulk buying and the answer was NO so they would still be full price.

I am still in for the additional £27

Protech definitely are not interested to do any discounts at all.

I also approached to gbs about some coil overs and the below response was given, they were interested to hear us out with regards to any purchases but I didn't contact them back due to phils avenue being explored

Hi Neil,

Will has forwarded this to me, Neil if the numbers are right and we can have a list of parts that you require then I'm sure we can have a deal.
Please feel free to get in touch with either myself or Richard as he is the Haynes roadster man.

Cheers,
Ben

Full refunds should start appearing via Paypal for the group buy, it could take a few working days for the money to clear due to the nature of Paypal. The large discount was made possible by a company I deal with passing the purchase through their books, we where paying the cash value and them reclaiming the VAT a few days later. How ever due to a hold up with a few payments their accounts have since been squared for the quarter.

GAZ are more than happy to give discount deals with reasonable bulk buys but they won't deal with cash and there is no getting around the VAT with them.
