As of today, their regular retail pricing of approx. $1150 (all-in delivered) for OE CSL lids seems like the new standard. If a group buy can shave anything off that cost, it's icing on the cake.

The sale was December 2nd. $1018 shipped before fees.

$713.66 was the base price for the lid. $1043.42 after all fees.

Im in for whatever discount. I was going to buy regardless.

Is there a timeframe for us to meet the numbers?

If you can get it to be direct ship to the buyer I would highly consider it

UPDATE (also posted pasted into the 1st page): Be patient with me guys as it might take a few days to hear a reply from Schmiedmann, BUT after some further help and discussion about pricing, we might be able to get a deeper discount than the 10% listed. Nothing is set in stone, so I am reluctant to say more just quite yet, but if it works out, I think everyone will be more than pleased with the results. Keep your fingers crossed and send good vibes. I will update this post when there is something concrete to go off of.

I would like to run this thread for at least a week to make sure people have time to see it and get finances in order. I have no timeline and Schmiedmann did not mention anything in that regard. I suppose we can keep it open for however long you all think is reasonable.

Until all the details and pricing is finalized, I have no plans to set a time limit. I just wanted to get the word out there while I am working on it, since there was plenty of interest on here and since Schmiedmann was receptive to the idea. I didn't want to invest time into this, if there was not a large enough interest. With the help of other forum members, I knew we might get farther than just me working on this alone. I will let you know if this changes as further details develop.

Unless something drastic changes (doubtful), this GB will be directly through Schmiedmann. I personally cannot commit to the time invested or nor would I be comfortable with the responsibility associated of having everything shipped to me, then have to worry about inspecting items, repackaging, and then the countless trips it would take to reship, let alone deal with any potential damage or returns...that would be a nightmare. With my schedule, that just wouldn't be possible or fair to anyone involved and I don't expect anyone with a solid enough reputation would want to volunteer for all the headaches that would entail, especially since this is being worked out for no compensation to myself or others. Going directly through Schmiedmann would eliminate all of that. Returns would be easy and the packages would be ensured.

You should know that Schmiedmann offers ZERO support post sale. I love them, don't get me wrong. Returns are not going to happen, trust me.

They will also ship the lids in the original BMW packaging with no additional packaging. Some will see minor damage.

If I wasn't in the process of buying a house, I'd be totally in. Thanks for setting this awesome group buy up

What support are you referring too?

This is what I know about, and if purchased directly through them, would apply:
Return Guide
Terms of Sale

Let me know if I am reading that incorrectly (No snark. I say this sincerely!)

I will be happy to look into this further. If it needs to be in personalized writing from Schmiedmann, I will be happy to pursue it. I want this to be a positive experience and having these issues spoken upon and addressed ahead of time is the exact reason why I decided to post this thread when I did. I want to make sure all issues, questions, or concerns are addressed ahead of time before moving forward, and I knew as a community, these would be identified more effectively. Their shipping should be insured for any damages accrued via transit. That risk and headache should be no different than purchasing it anywhere else or if purchasing from them without the group discount code.

It's just the way they are. None of those terms apply, they just ignore you. Very good support pre-sale, nothing after. I still deal with them knowing this. They are not going to accept returns, especially on discounted items like this. Any damages will have to be dealt with through DHL... but don't expect too much return there due to the way they ship them. Any buyers remorse people should expect to take it upon themselves to resell it to reclaim money.

Many of use have used Schmiedmann for awhile now. This is first hand experience. They are in Denmark. There is no easy way for them to help anyone in the US so it makes sense.

I fully support this GB and still encourage people to get onboard. I've never personally had any shipping damages and they are incredibly fast. People should just be aware of what to expect.
