WANTED: Alpine Retrofit kit E90 -Possible Groupbuy

Hi all

I am looking for the Alpine Retrofit kit. Either looking to buy from someone who has one for sale or if you can point me in the direction of where I can save a few s on one that would be great too.

Thanks!

I got a price from the dealership I go to at around 360+40 for the two door sills so the eBay stores really don't add much in the way of discount.

I wonder if a few of us got together we could get a group buy put together?

I think I will enquire tomorrow about this.

Contact Sytner where Anneka used to work and ask what best price they can offer you if you get 10 customers.
Start GB thread and I am sure you will get 10 names in few days.

Quick update.

I have put in price requests for group buys today. I have been told to expect a reply by Monday as to whether or not a group buy will be feasible.

I was in my car earlier thinking it's time to bump up the sound quality.

I'm interested, although I know the pre lci and lci versions both differ, with seperate part numbers.

Door sills are approx 46-50 depending on humor of your dealer. They were never 40 unless LCI have cheaper parts.

Yep, Anneka ran 2 GB's side by side - one for pre lci & one for lci.

Also, lci price is higher than pre lci.

Good man

Would also like to know if they could include the window surrounds at a discounted price, as my current car doesn't have tweeters.

Has nobody got back to you? They obviously don't want your money (or mine)

Not the same service now that Anekka has left

But thanks for trying mate.

They did get back to me but the saving wasn't really significant, it was around 30/under 10%.

I am waiting back to hear from a different group of dealerships but I am unsure if they will be able to do any better to be honest.
