my point was that if i order by myself i can get oss b/o for 649 plus i pay for shipping...if this is a group buy shouldnt the price be a lil less, not more?

plus im sure theirs a cost to install im sure its not 750 with b/o option and installation? Just trying to get more info to see if i want to jump on board with you guys

Well if I didn't answer your question then you might want to PM Sal@AUTOcouture...I'm not in charge of the logistics..

Chris, I'd assume that Sal's group buy does include the entire job. As adding extra for custom paint or blackouts, probably isn't referring to parts, but the labor as well. Either a PM or a quick confirmation from Sal on here, may get more peeps intrigued.

thats my whole point im not trying to assume...i feel a response here would be better bc it would let everyone know whos interested...i just want to see whats worth my while bc i have a friend who works in a shop who can take the lights out for me and if they cost me 30 to ship to oss and the jobs 649 and 30 back id pay less regardless of downtime i could care less about honestly

im not knockin you guys i just feel the point of a groupbuy...is to get a discount..no?

Our regular pricing is $100 more than the group buy pricing, so that is the discount

Well there you go. You've answered your own question. Most if not all people in this group buy can't deal with a week to two week downtime period during which they cannot use their car at all. That's not feasible at all for people who use this car as a daily driver. This is a MUCH more convenient and easier option for most people.

Exactly. The convenience of dropping the lights off or car off in the morning and being able to have the set done ready to roll by the afternoon

^Yup

Just to clarify for people - the ACM LED group buy is for people who want a turnaround of installed ACM LED angel eyes in a day. There is no risk associated with shipping your headlights, having your car inoperable for weeks at a time, or having to install/remove the headlights yourself. It's the most convenient option possible for most people who use this car as a daily driver.

Hey Sal, did you get my PM regarding finishing the Sway Bar install? I got the right bushings sent to me so I am anxious to get this thing bolted on! :-)
