Default Evolution Skid Plate Group Buy/other fest requests

I'm doing a group buy on Evolution Skid Plates for the upcoming Portland West Coast GTG. We've got 15 plates heading down there; I was just asked if there is a way I can get skid plates to Fest. Shipping is going to be about as far away from Washington State as possible, but if I can get 10 plates committed to I'll do $40 off my website prices. 20 Plates will be $50 off.

Just for informational purposes I figured 300 lbs of skidplates will cost me about $350 to ship via Freight! There would be no additional shipping charges for anyone however. Please post ASAP if you're committed and I'll get going on it. Need to know what type as well:

A4 with or without drain plug
A5
A3
B4
Corrado
AUDI A4, TT etc....


Also, I'll do Hella Micro DE Foglight kits at a further $50 discount, $150 picked up at the GTG. I'd prefer to have interest in these beforehand as well. Any other special requests from Ecodes to gearsets please let me know and I'll remember to bring it!

Thanks,
-BB

Would you do the $150 picked up price on the jetta micro de fogs at the fest as well? also, i take it that there isnt much of an issue with these blocking air flow to the IC, right?

Sorry, I meant $150 picked up at fest. I'd like a good idea of how many of those to bring too; since I'm flying in I'm understandably going to have to be careful on how much stuff I bring, hence I hope that special requests will be put in with enough time for me to ship it all out there. I plan on sending out the skid plates from WA 2-weeks from today. As for the foglight kits I'll probably have at least 4 with me, maybe 8 if enough are needed. I have 37 kits in stock...

Cheers,

Would the interference with the IC be restrictive for their use?

Not in my experience; I have customers using the DE kits in Arizona, Texas and other very warm places. Even out here in Utah at 105-110 degrees, or when I was in Vegas at 118 I didn't notice any adverse effects. If one were paranoid one could get the AUDI TT vented sideskirts and that might help a bit, but I seriously doubt it's necessary.

Cool, will do. I'm also exploring a special order of ecodes and euro rub strips, but I'd need at least 4 commitments before I could do that...
