    Group Buy for E36 X-Braces anyone!? :D

    Hi all,

    I spoke briefly a while back with a company/garage called Chizfab not far from me. BMW's and drifting seem to be their speciality and they fabricate a few performance enhancing parts for the E36. The rear camber arms seem to go down well (of which I will be ordering a pair of) but I had mentioned, in passing, the possibility of making me an x-braces which I heard had been done before. It was said that if there was enough interest to make it work their while a batch could be made.

    Soooooo I though that it might be worth a mention to drum up any interest! . Now I have no idea what they would charge but I reckon I wouldn't be too far out of line with what a normal one would cost you and I have no doubts about the quality being anything other than spot on. Oh and they'll powder coat it in any colour I believe!

    If there is enough curiosity we'll see about getting something started

    Any interest?

    Pees

    Good idea but cost? You can get one off eBay 50-60 quid. Only heard good things about them guys.

    Yeah that's the main point I guess.

    To be fair tho from ebay with delivery inc I think closer to 80-90 for something a bit rusty... A new one is around 120-130 i think from BMW (you might know better) but we'll see. It's only worth what the market will pay I guess

    If they can do them for 70-80 I reckon they will shift loads, like u said a rusty one off Ebay or a new one for the same.

    I'm interested, I have got bits off Jeek before, and he knows my good mate.

    Like said if in the ebay price range, not brand new could be interested.
    Ask them to get a price depending on how many people needed.

    So like 1-5 = 90
    6-10 = 80

    etc.
