    Ok..well i have heard back from the UK distributors.
    Basically we get a 10% discount for 10 sets. More for 20-30 sets.
    Shipping is only £10.
    But...and its a big but...the collars are £180 plus vat each set.
    After discount this works out as £195.60 a set!
    According to Masa,its a worthwhile mod and could cure/limit the pulling to the left some cars have plus makes the chassis nice n rigid.
    Thoughts?

    Holy balls. And i thought Renault were bad with their part pricing but this is ridiculous.

    So essentially £195 for a set of 4? aluminium? washers....

    I can imagine the pricing comes from having to disassemble a car to gain dimensions for the bushes, but tbh thats steep.

    I work in a maching shop and could produce them...just need dimensions.

    Buy a set, get the dimensions, fabricate loads to sell on here and cover the price of the initial set + make a profit on the side.

    Dooooooo iiiiitttttt.

    Sounds like those that are interested need to club together to buy a set then have them made up by a marshall 8)

    Let me just pick myself up off the floor.....

    I'll stick with the occasional creak/squeak.

    and it also forget to say that some sub-frames have tapered locating dowls and hence these would be useless...

    I think pretty much all sub frames use tapered dowels to make assembly quick but without compomising accuracy of assembly.

    I see these as a bit of a gimic, manufacturers aren't stupid and something as simple as this could be produced in bulk for a penny or 2...manufacturers would use them if they were good enough to warrant a £200 price tag

    I forgot but I must say £190 is only for a front set.
    If you get both front and rear, it will be double.:eek:
