Hugehead. I can have them make up another batch, however they are currently quite expensive to manufactur even if I buy in lots of 25.

I would be afriad that I would buy say 100 of them, and then end up with 60 plug pullers that I could never sell. Plus I am outlaying the cash to manufacture these myself...not taking any money from anybody until I know the quality and fit and finish are up to scratch. You see the prototype I made myself and oversaw the production of it. The 25 currently being made are outsourced to one of my rapid CNC machining suppliers. I am trying to keep the price reasonable on these parts and right now lots of 25 works best for that.

What I am hoping for is once these 25 hit, the word of mouth will get out and then Division M engineering will begin to make a name for itself. This is the first effort.

I am also working on another project for a friend. The prototype part will be here in two days its a boost control holder for his 993 Turbo that fits flush into the air vent and retains the ability for airflow. The eventual piece will be milled from a solid piece of carbon but the prototype is black nylon 6.

The picture below is not the best but you get the idea. This fits the brand new only available for like a month Greddy Profec with the OLED display. I modeled up the whole piece then designed the holder around it.


my bad,very true ( ie numbers of members wanting the stuff), word of mouth has already been spread , i like the look of that greddy booster control holder , no doubt you'll have yr hands full with that as well !!,
yr efforts is greatly appreciated by myself and no doubt all the groupbuy members

25.) E92zero

Okay so this is the final list for the first order. Number 25 is going to E92zero for free since the tool was based on his measurements that he used to make the puller from PVC.

The group buy is now closed.

Once this group is shipped out and paid for, any leftovers from people not paying or deciding they don't want one etc will be offered for sale.

Again I will post paypal details once the parts are in hand and I have checked quality and fitment. Should be in about 2-3 weeks.

Thanks,

TxStig.

UPDATE!!

I received a confirmation e-mail today that the parts shipped out. I should have them in my hand by Friday. These are some pictures the manufacturer sent me I figured I would give a little sneak peek...

I'm not overjoyed with the surface finish but have an idea of something I will do over the weekend to make this better...

I am pretty sure this will fit on the M5 and M6 plugs also I just need to find a car in Houston to test it on.

Then I will offer it on their forum and maybe receive enough attention for another order.

Thanks,

TxStig.

UPDATE!!! Parts have arrived!!





Alright guys all parts were received today and checked for quality and fitment this afternoon. Everything looks to be good.

They ended up sending me 27 pieces so I will be able to cover a couple more people price will be $35 shipped.

Please send Paypal to: petermarkmiddleton@gmail.com

Please include your Forum name with the paypal order.

Now I'm not currently setup to keep track of all the people who put their name on the list and cross check against paypal. However I will give the people originally signed up two weeks to send out the paypal. After that any extras will be on a first come first serve basis. If that doesnt sound fair please let me know as I am sure I can work something out. I just cant think of a better way. I obviously have my own money tied up in these things sooooo....

When I receive the paypal I will send a private message to the sender on here to verify they are the right person.

Hope everybody stays honest and waits until I close the first buy before trying to send money through paypal and snag someone elses. I hope to be ordering a bunch more of these soon so please be patient if you didnt get one this time.

Other than that. I will ship out as soon as paypal and shiping address is received and I get a confirmation through private message on here. Tracking number will be sent upon ship.

Thanks Guys! If you have any problems at all let me know. Your feedback is much appreciated!

I would've preferred a bare surface finish like the original but oh well that's just cosmetic.

I signed up for two, how much do I send?

Thanks again!

What do you mean a bare surface finish? Without the logo?

The surface finish is as bare as it gets thats just a cosmetic from the milling process...

Two will be $60 please.

Thanks
