Any vendors doing a sell on AR downpipes for Black Friday or a group buy for Christma

I'm wanting to go ahead and buy some downpipes since I have procrastinated forever to instal my FMIC and DCI. So figured I might as well spend more money and put it all on at once. More Importantly though, Black Friday is coming up and Christmas is around the corner. So I was wondering if anyone wanted to start a discounted group buy on some AR downpipes. Some people may be wondering why AR instead of VRSF. I really almost pulled the trigger on VRSF because of the lifetime warranty and cost. However after looking at reviews almost every single person complained about fitment issues. Me and my friends (who are actually really good mechanics...one works at Porsche the other has his own business rebuilding cars.) are going to be doing the install ourself, so I would rather not go through the hassle of re-fitment. AR seemed to have almost zero fitment issues on reviews and I would rather spend more to have less trouble...plus I can go ahead and get it ceramic coated through them. Not trying to start a thread war this is just my 2 cents. I mainly just want to see if I can some discounted or a deal on some AR downpipes haha.

I seriously am bashing my head over this I'm just not sold on VRSF yet. I have seen so many people talk about fitment issues, now VRSF does seem to say if any issues just send them back and we will replace them but I don't really want to go through all that. Also I saw a review were someone had VRSF downpipes and he said it tapered down to 2.25 instead of the 2.5..not sure why but it just seems AR has had less hassle.

what about macht schnell DPs? havent read any bad reviews about those. not as cheap as VRSF but i think still lower than AR. if a group buy does happen for AR and its decent price i would be in also.

I haven't done much research on those but I'll look into them. But if I could get a decent price on AR I would just go ahed and get them. The price of VRSF is killing me though...sooo cheap.
