My bad...I bought a kit from Blunt tech 2 weeks ago. I must have gotten one of his last ones left.

USA people: any interest in trying a group buy direct from Burkhart again? Unless someone on here already has connections, I'm willing to pave the way. Personal exemption is only ~$800, so there is always a risk of customs costs having them ship direct to me. Looks like BluntTech is out of stock and doesn't even have a listing for it anymore.

SF Bay Area people: At the minimum, we can group together, save some shipping cost, and maybe if we get enough orders they'll throw us a discount.

Post here if interested so I know what I'm working with:
SF Bay Area GB - discount might just be reduced shipping; if enough, might be able to get 10% off:
1)
2)
3)

USA nationwide GB - any discount TBD on number of peopel (essentially, I become a USA distribution point for the buy):
1)
2)
3)
4)


As soon as I have any gauge of interest, I'll reach out to Burkhart and see what can be arranged.


My recent troubles...

I'm seeing yellow cogs popping up, code P1717, and DIS code just says implausible number which means the motor might be running longer than it should, and/or the fluid isn't liking the 100+F degree temperatures we've had here lately. At 88k miles, I'm sure my motor is heading downhill, so instead of just trying a fluid exchange to the thicker Burkhart fluid, I figured I might as well get my hands on the motor now for when my original dies, and in the meantime see if the fresh fluid can handle the heat better, as well as potential that the pump seals are leaking a little internally and the thicker fluid may help with that as well. Accumulator baseline 34.9, so no problem there (29-41 is normal). Last summer did pump timing tests...all reasonable even with warm engine/fluid...just not in real time at 100 degrees out on the road.

Cool, I'm in for a kit w/o motor if they'll sell it that way. I've had the motor on the shelf since the last GB, just waiting for it to give me issues.

BTW, I've got 155k on my pump motor, and since I did the resistor mod (680 Ohm), I've had no heat-related issues and that includes a slog over Hecker Pass into Gilroy and north on 101 in stop & go traffic last Sunday. Never had an issue with it on track, even at Thill in August. Stop and go seems to cause the most problems.

Specifically, this item:

Hi guys, this GB tack-on to the original thread hasn't generated much particular interest and I didn't want to start a new one for a GB, but I reached out already to see what they might offer...here it is.

a) Good for at least 5 buyers (currently certified up to 5 since I said that seems to be the amount of interest)
b) 5% discount (~21E, or ~$24)
c) Upgraded express shipping at no extra cost (std shipping is 62E)
d) Payment must be by Paypal Friends and Family (no credit cards)

So here is the current breakdown:
Non VAT Price: 419E
discount 5%: 21E
Shipping: 62E
Total: 460E, or about $520

This isn't a lot of real benefit at these numbers. Paypal is going to do the USD to Euro conversion, which is about 3% worse than Visa/Mastercard, and with no credit card benefits (often 1-2% of value), combined that virtually wipes out the 5% discount. So the only "real" benefit here is the express shipping, which I personally would rather see them give us discount shipping instead.

I've asked to get the discount to 5% with credit card payment, 10% with PayPal F&F payment, as well as getting a reduced shipping cost for standard shipping rather than free express shipping, so we'll see what comes of it.

Customs - there is a $800 person use exemption (per order) so there shouldn't be any customs/duties due on this, as each person would complete their own transaction and it would be shipped directly to you. I'd love to import them myself and save us most of the shipping costs and then re-ship within the USA, but the odds of getting hit with duties (28% for auto parts imported from Germany based on my research) would kill...and then some...any benefit of commingled shipping several of these to me, and then me shipping out from here to everyone else.
