Wide-body Rear LEDs - Who wants them?


Recommended Posts

This thread is here to replace the one that was on 6SpeedOnline but deleted because it was considered a "Group Buy".

The whole synopsis is described here: http://www.comtech.ws/scripts/GroupBuy.dll/home but here is a quick recap...

The initial thread was created to show vendors the interest in a product for which no vendor was willing to commit to production because vendors thought there would be no profit in it. I had approached CarGym and asked what kind of numbers would be required to make the project profitable for them. I expected that other vendors would require the same participation to beat their bottom line as well.

Originally, CarGym stated that they needed 250 orders at $600 each before they would consider going forward. (Apparently the cost for producing the mould is upwards of $120K.) After the great response on 6SO, they said they would start development immediately. So, in Jan 2013 they started working on the project. They are currently developing the drawings. They said that they expect about 6 months from start to production.

I have been maintaining a list of members who are committed to the purchase when the product is available. This list should identify the first people to receive the LEDs before they are available to the general public. The list is available at the link specified at the start of this thread. If you want to be included in the list, please state you commitment here and I will add you to the list. Please don't put your name in unless your are ready to pay $600 for a set. I will be evaluating the prototypes and detailing product reviews as they become available. No one will be happy if the quality isn't there, so I will be very critical of the first products to make sure they will meet or exceed OEM quality.

Excellent - happy to see people are still following.

Since I have the 6SO names, I can always go back to 6SO and PM all parties when the product is available. I can probably write something to do it automatically, so it shouldn't be a big deal.

Hi Slider,
