I had been wondering if a matte black fin would look good. I think it would be a nice complement to the finish on the cross rails. But I think I'll play it safe and go with PDM color code.

Re: Visualgarage.com shark fin antenna group buy feeler!!!

UPDATE:

I received a response from VisualGarage and the pricing break down for a group buy is actually rather low for the number of members interested. Here is the email I received:
Quote:
Thank you for your email.

Glad to hear there is quite a number of people interested in the group buy. We've done many group buys in the past and also have great response. Please see below for price break down:

Pricing per shark fin, excluding shipping:

Qty: 5 to 15 @ $65.55 each
Qty: 16 to 30 @ $62.10 each
Qty: 30 to 49 @ $58.65 each
Qty: 50+ @ $55.20 each

Shipping charges shipped individually are as follows:

USA: $12USD
Canada: $12USD (HST/GST also needed for entire order)
International: $28USD

For a group buy to happen, we need one person to be the organizer and collect all the car information and payments from members, and then make one lump sum payment to us and send us all the car details at the same time. Lead time after submitting payment is around 2 to 3 weeks before shipping out, depending on size of the order.

Regards,

XXXX
So as you can see, the price savings isn't much and their required format for the group buy to be a go is 'untraditional' from the past ones I have started. This deal is pretty much just like free shipping and you get to wait nearly a month to get your antenna.

I have initiated a number of group buys on various forums for past vehicles I have owned and this is the easily the lowest margin on price savings. For example, when the Superchips FlashPaq was released for the 2004+ 5.7L HEMI Dodge Rams, a GB that I started got the pricing down to nearly $200 shipped for each person and that group buy was no where near 50 members. It was nearly a 40-50% savings at the time.

The main issue is their mass payment requirement. That is new to me and a door to too many potential issues. So, does anyone know of another company who sales a similar antenna that will work for the WK2? I will gladly see if their company can handle a group buy.

At the point, this group buy seems to be dead in the water........

I was not expecting such a pathetic response on a pretty nice sized group buy.

Any suggestions???

Thats a great question C, I thought about it but untimately ended up choosing the matching PDM color. I'm not sure why I went the way I did.. just hoping it turns out ok. I am expecting my sharkfin to be delivered tomorrow.
