Quesiton Euro bumpers

Question, about Euro spec. bumpers. I am in the process of trying to get 12 sets of euro spec 924 and 944 bumpers. I have some work connections in Europe and might be able to put these on a crate with some of my work stuff. How much interest would I have at $350-$450 a set?

Please check my thread over on Rennlist, I'm trying to do them for $100-200 cheaper.
I'm estimating prices in the $250-$300 range, hopefully that will include lights and shipping to the buyer.
Rears are cheaper than that though.

I'm not 100% sure that this whole thing is going through, but I am making my best effors to ensure that it will.

I guess there always has to be a better business man in the bunch. I will be in Middleburg, Netherlands this week and I plan on picking up a set for myself at Van Zweeden. Seeing the heated cost debate on product that is not even in the states as of yet I am going to step away from this. For those of you that responded to my most I thank you for your information and sorry for the no follow through. You can deal with Zero10. Hey Zero10, the posts are free and will not cut into your profits, so you can probably afford to make up your own next time.

Perhaps you noticed the partial thread hijack on the Fuched wheels thread, where this whole idea got rolling? Anyways, I'm not trying to make any money on this. I'm simply trying to get the cost down on my set of bumpers, by combining shipping with others. I have a few connections that should make this a relatively pain-less process, so it seemed worthwhile to me.

Anyways, I'm not trying to undermine you here. But, starting my own thread about exactly the same thing, at the same time would not be a good idea.

My personal advice would be don't go to Van Zweeden for euro parts. Hit up some local wreckers. The prices at Van Zweeden are greatly inflated. If you do this, and you alreayd have some kind of shipping deal, you just might be able to beat my prices. And if so, good. I want to see some euro bumpers come over at a reasonable price, whether it's me that does it, or somebody else.

Seems to me, when I considered importing some bumpers from Van Zweeden, I was looking at about $600 US for a front, and $300 US for a rear. Which you have beat by a significant margin.

Zero10: Sorry for popping off. The only reason I am doing business with Van Zweeden is that I am here on business this week and was trying to wrap up a deal. I have contacts all over europe and just wanted to get a decent set for my self. I have heard that the Van Zweeden guys can be high priced and if they do not make me a deal then I might become your customer. I was trying to work a deal but it seems like the numbers keep changing. I will keep you posted.

Honestly, I'm not trying to undermine you, I apologize for the bluntness of my first post.

If it's at all possible, the best bet would be to find some smaller wreckers, and pick up as many sets as you can. From what I have seen, there seems to be a market for about 15+ pairs of bumpers at the moment, and there are probably more people who haven't seen my threads who would be interested.

My primary intent is to get euro bumpers to the people who want them, while trying to get myself a set too.
