Useful Group Buy - BMW BBK 920 Delivered

http://babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.p...123762#p123762

I have a set on both cars now and can't recommend them highly enough, anyone in the midlands who wants a set I have a friendly dealer that can match this price for the parts.

Did you think that was expsensive? Thats for front and rear discs, pads and callipers... Thats a bargain!

I still want to do the rears on mine as the fronts are proving to be rather good...

Absolutely no comparison to stock, they are much better.

I'm not suggesting that anyone needs to upgrade from stock especially if your car will only ever be used on the road but if you are considering an upgrade it is avery cost effective way of improving the system and on a really shallow note they look amazing !


The only negative is increased brake dust.

I've had them fitted to my car for the last month or so and they make a huge difference. Much better than the standard offering.

I'd never manage without them unless I fancy spilling my horlicks

Like I said though Carl, they are not 'needed' just a really good price if desired, the same kit via Speed religion or official BMW pricing is around 1,100.

just trying to spread the good news

I could get you a set for 550 but you would have to collect from Midlands dealer, RRP before VAT decrease was 725, amend vat to 15% then 20% discount.

You pay the dealer on collection so all parts subject to BMW 24mth warranty

All I can say is that I have built an excellent relationship with the parts manager at one of the main franchises so he is willing to negotiate on the price of parts as it enables him to meet his monthly figures, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to name the dealership on here as no doubt his fellow main dealer competitors would have a great deal to say about it, I'm not intending to be secretive just protecting the source as I tend to spend a few quid on my cars so the saving is welcomed.


If anyone is interested PM me your mobile number with your requirements and I will pass this onto the parts manager.
