it's been tried over the years and unfortunately
it's a tough sell since most guys bargain down a $500 swift.

even though an lsd equipped swift vs a non-lsd swift are 2 different cars completly, lsd group buys have never taken off...even if the lsds sell for $200 a pop...

I hope it works out for you tho...

i have no idea. i just thort that seen as im looking at getting one in the future then maybe i could get you guys the discount aswell. il wait about a week before i contact them again. just gives everyone a chance to say if there interested. i personally think a high power gti should have one fitted because as you say it is a totally different car with one

I'm certainly interested but the USD sucks compared to the GBP, so 550GBP is USD1070 plus shipping.
I'd certainly be down for a good diff in the $700 range tho... That's more than I've paid for the rest of the drivetrain so....

im in the uk. well im not sure on prices yet but the more ppl i get the more discount i will get i imagine. they sell them at 550pounds but if we get a few of us we may be able to get a fair amount knocked off. so common guys. the more the better!!!!

just got off the phone to the guy about these diffs and the best deal looks like if we can get 10 buyers. he will do them at £450plus vat which saves you £100. he says he has sold a lot of these diff all over the world and he says he will set up your diff to suit your own needs for example, if you rally/street/drag your swift then he will set it up for that. at the moment we have 5 which he will sell them at £490ish. so now i need to know who is in and who isnt so we can get an order down. there has to be 10 guys out there that wonts a diff. also remember i will need the money before i order.

common guys!!!!!

As good of a deal as it is, a lot of us(like me) don't have $1000USD to be throwing at a diff :(. The LSD diff group buys never work out. 5 might be workable, but I don't think you'll get 10 people. I would love to get one, but Jess(turbinetech) already took my money :lol:

i can see your point but a gti with lsd is a far better car than without. maybe u will considder when your turbo is up and running. well the deal stil stands at the moment. just thort i would of got a bit more feedback.

Hey Dug, if the diff's are being exported outside the EU to individuals then VAT should not be charged.
Also if your talking to Tom at Gripper ask him about cash deals!!!!
Just trying to help people get a good deal

yes i only got 2 in the end. not enough interest. just wish ther was more of us. il let everybody know how it performs once my turbo engine is up and running.

i dont think £550 (which i got them for in the end) is that expensive to say it totally transforms the car and how much of a necessity it is on a turbo car.

i basically saved the vat if you was wondering why the price was the same as they sell them for. i saved bout £100 on each unit.
