I put Group Buys in a whole different category. Standard Commercial Sales from those with websites 'stocked' with category after category of goodies for Bimmers and the E82 in particular who don't actually have the items they parade on their websites and don't bother ever telling you that they are not actually on their way after you order and pay - is what gripes me.
And even the Group Buy mavens ought disclose when they need your prepay funds to get they products built. It would be no big deal to me it that were the case - I just feel I deserve to know.
