From $30 to $80 huh. Got to love that porsche tax...

At $30 this sounded great. At $80 I'll continue with what I have.

I have no problem with there being a fair profit margin(remember its small market/volume), that IS BUSINESS...but promising a price means promising a price....
for me at this time....3 at $30, [email protected]

That's exactly what I remember as well, I asked for a freight quote to Aussie back in Jan and he said he'll get it to me within a couple of days but I'm still waiting. Surely he's a man of his word.

I PM'd him last night but haven't heard back from him.

Easy to buy a set at $30...but to see it jump from $30 to $80. Impressive.

Guess I"ll keep an eye on this thread.

Meanwhile l did this to stop the cracks from getting worse.
I drilled a couple of small holes in the base of the lights and secured with zip ties through the holes that were already there in the body work, works just fine

Just take the lights off and use 2part epoxy on the cracks.

saw them on ebay, wanted 3 sets (out of the 13 available...) but didn't want to take away from many others here who could use them....I'll wait for the Rennlist price to be honoured.

Very considerate of you as usual Rob. My rennlist price was honored and they're on their way.

didn't mean it to come across that way, but thanks Jim
not to sound like an a$$ but it's just a shame that only 13 sets were made available after the initial hype and promise...but I'm sure everyone else will just wait for the promised RL price I don't need any but have a few 6TT/GT2's that could benefit long-term..
Cheers,
Rob

I also dont mind a fair profit. However 30 isnt a sale price compared to 80. Either 30 is a small attempt to honor the original promise knowing that costs are higher than anticipated and he is losing profit, or there is a profit margin so huge I simply can live without it. Its not as if my lights are falling off right now after all.

Got mine today, even though i used a 2part epoxy to fix the lights, used these to reinforce the repair. They fit fine, and do as advertised.
