Apologies for the delay in updating this:

Attached below is the spreadsheet with the numbers that folk have requested.

I have negotiated a 20% discount if I order 30 of the Cam Belt side dampers (£53.92+vat each) but that supplier cannot beat the eBay sellers price of the gearbox damper, so I am current waiting to see if the eBay provider can do a discount on the 27 gearbox dampers. (so price may come down a little)

Shipping all units to me currently stands at £16.00 - so everyone just chips in £1.00 - then I have to work out shipping costs of the individual items to each person.

Please please please, if you have any questions then please ask me (got a lot going on at the moment)

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

Hi Alberto,

It's not revenge just my old age I'm afraid, it is a good job I ordered 30 as that allowed for one extra if I missed someone!

Soon as I'm out of hospital I will update the spreadsheet and upload it. I've just had a minor operation on my neck but will be home in a couple of hours.

You deserved to win last night, Italy were by far the better team so well done!

Eric et al,

I would like to leave this post up for all to see, I will also send PM/emails to those that have registered an interest have a chance review. 

If folk pull out then I have to go back to the supplier as the price break is at 50 units but I persuaded the supplier to give us the discount at 30, if it drops below that then it gets more expensive for everyone. Sad

Plus I'm still waiting to see if I can get a bulk discount on the gearbox side.

Just want to keep everything transparent!

Good news, got a bit of discount on the gearbox side.... it all helps :-)




Hi Matt, Febi have had a price increase but for 28 the best price would be £ 22.00 each + delivery
 
Thanks for thinking of us again

Hi Ian,

I bought one of these off you a few months ago and fitted directly to one of my 35 year old cars... it was a direct fit and works perfectly.

I am looking to do a "group buy" so would be looking for 28 of them, can you do any discount on a bulk purchase of these?

For transparency - here is the quote from the supplier of the Cam Belt side damper.  Shame they could not match the price of the guy I initially bought one off from eBay - but costs soon mount up when bulk buying.

You can work out the cost of just the cam belt side inclusive of VAT by multiplying the total for 30 x 1.20 ( I make this £1941.12)

Heres the quote ( I had to scrub out my home address for privacy reasons)

Damn... looks like I saw this too late. If you need to get numbers back up (for whatever reason) I'll take one of each.

I will check with Mark but I don't see a problem, as long as the parts arrive in time.  Manufacturer says the dampers will be delivered in 4 to 6 weeks, but when I ordered a single damper it was more like 3 weeks and it arrived.

The order was placed today for all the dampers.  Lead time for cam belt side damper is approx 4 weeks.  Lead time for the gearbox side damper is 10 days.

I will be contacting everyone shortly with either my bank details or PayPal account details.  Entirely personal choice but if your using PayPal please send as a gift.

Cheers

All,

Had a phone call from the supplier of the gearbox side damper - they are scheduled for delivery to me tomorrow, so I'm just trying to arrange Working From Home for tomorrow so I am about to accept the delivery.

The gearbox side dampers arrived today - for those who have paid and were getting nervous heres a picture!  It took a day longer because work would not let me WFH :-(


Just waiting for the cam belt side dampers to arrive which should be fairly soon I reckon.  So for those that have not paid yet, start preparing those wallets   Grin

I cannot imagine anyone getting nervous with you, given all the effort you put in.

I think I might have asked for payment before ordering, so hope you are not let down with it, though I guess there will be takers over time for any spares you buy and folk on this forum are pretty honest as far as I can tell.

Just to say thanks again for organising them.

Hi Matt,

I'm sorry, is it possible I did not get your info on PayPal account details? (Or did I...? I'll check tonight  Undecided)

Also, if it would be possible to combine shipping with Betaboyz parts, like someone already asked, I would be interested too, as I have an outstanding order with Mark. If that would complicate things to much, then never mind; I don't want to make things any more difficult for you, especially with everything you have on your mind with the house move and all...

Hi Kevin,

paypal details will be sent shortly, I have been sending out payment details in small batches because I do not want to get mixed up as there are nineteen different people to get payments from.

I am not affiliated to Mark ? LanciaBetaParts.co.uk and we live over 100 miles away from each other, so combining with other orders from Mark is going to be a problem and made worse by the fact that Mark will be on Holiday for a few weeks.

That said, I owe you a favour because you sent me some bits for a Beta Tool kit a while ago, so that favour is about to be returned  Grin

All,

Just had an update that the cam belt side dampers are scheduled for delivery from the manufacturer (Stabilus in Germany) to the UK distributer (F.A.Parkes Ltd) on 7th August, they will then dispatch them to me by courier and then the distribution to forum members will start.

Cheers
