Unofficial "Feeler" List

93 members joined the feeler list. Usernames removed for member privacy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Group Buy Details:

Official Payment collection day starts: January 29th, 2014 *Updated
Official Close Date and last day to pay: February 5th, 2014 *Updated
Product Ship Date: Orders will begin shipping out on February 10th, with almost all orders shipped mid February.


Free Shipping*
  • Free Shipping is available to members in the 48 mainland US states. Alaska, Hawaii, and International members will receive a $75 credit off the actual cost of shipping.
  • Non-mainland/international members: please contact us prior to ordering for a shipping quote. We'll either send you an invoice, or a code to adjust your order.
  • Free shipping and this discounted price are for product in this group buy only, and does not cover extras added to the cart such as spacers, lugs, center caps or other store products, unless those products also offer free shipping. Adding others parts may result in a shipping fee.
  • Due to package sizes, the cart may calculate an unreasonable shipping rate for some add on items. If this occurs, contact us prior to checkout, and we will adjust your extra item shipping costs if there is an issue.
  • Non Group Buy parts will ship with your wheel order unless requested in the comment field at checkout.

Local Pickup Discount:
  • Local customers who pick up their set will receive a $35 discount on their order in lieu of free shipping. Local pickup discounts are provided at time of pickup as a refund, and are not provided in advance. You MUST write "local pickup" in the comment field at checkout so that we do not ship your order. We will call you when your set is ready to schedule a pickup from our Livermore 94550 warehouse.

When do these ship?:

CURRENT ETA: Orders will begin shipping out on February 10th, with almost all orders shipped mid February.
  • This is a Group Buy. Wheels do not ship the day after making payment like a traditional order.
  • Due to the high volume extra time will be needed to process orders.
  • Wheel orders should ship in the order that they were received.
  • We cannot guarantee an exact ETA date. Our estimates have historically been conservative and within +/- two weeks of our ETA date.
  • Because this Group Buy offers free shipping, we cannot provide expedited shipping in the event of a delay. Minor delays may occur, please allow for extra order processing time.
  • We will keep everyone up to date of even minor changes if they occur via this thread.
  • Tracking numbers will be provided to all buyers, and important progress updates will be posted on this forum, and on corresponding product pages.

Availability
  • Some sizes and finishes will sell out.
  • Availability is limited to supply on hand.
  • No back-orders, or rain-checks. This discount is available while supplies last.
  • We will try to stay up to date with sold out finishes/sizes by posting them here and on the forums, as well as on the website.
  • Within a day of placing an order request, we will contact you if the wheels you have requested have been sold out. You will have the option to change to a different finish or fitment if you'd like, or you may cancel your order

How do I join? Payments and Sign-up info

This Group Buy is now CLOSED
Discount Tiers
  • The price you pay at sign up is based on how many members are on the feeler list.
  • At the close of the Group Buy, everyone's order/payment will be adjusted up or down to the final discount tier reached. In almost all cases, we end up reaching higher tier levels, which results in all or most paying members receiving additional discounts.
  • In the end, everyone pays the same price.
  • There is zero advantage in signing up at the last minute, yet most members still wait till the last ~2 days.
  • Early sign-ups promote others to sign-up, and gives confidence to the stragglers. If you know you're buying then pay early to keep the momentum going.

Refunds
  • There are NO refunds on Group Buy orders. Group Buys are special order, which is why payment is taken in advance
  • Only replacement of defective, or mis-shipped products are available.
  • Members cannot change colors or sizes after item receipt for Group Buy orders.
  • These products are priced at promotional pricing and do not carry that same return policy as our retail priced items. If you would like a traditional 30 Day return policy then we recommend purchasing at the retail price, and not via the Group Buy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are the available EC-7 wheels.



Profile 1 Concavity


Profile 2 Concavity - medium concave


Profile 3 Concavity - most concave


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wheel Details:

Manufacturing process:
All APEX wheels are flow-formed resulting in a light weight, track and street worthy wheel. Flow-forming significantly reduces weight in the barrel by rolling the barrel out into it's final shape using large wheels/disks applying high pressure. This step is the same step that monoblock forged wheels go through to shape their barrels. By doing this, the flow-formed wheel's barrel has the same density and strength as the barrel of a fully forged wheel. This significantly reduces rotational mass at the furthest point from the center, which is the most important weight savings area on a wheel.

Strength:
These wheels are fully JWL/VIA certified. Strength testing was done by the VIA in Japan.

Misc.
  • Comes with carbon-look APEX center caps.
  • Accepts OEM Roundel center caps.
  • Does not come with valve stems.
  • Installs using your factory lugs or a stud conversion.
  • BMW hub-centric - no centering rings
  • Accepts all wheel spacers including 5mm while still remaining hub-centric.
  • TPMS compatible.

It's been only a day since the Group Buy Feeler phase has started, and we already have a handful of people signed up, as well as many that are currently deciding on their preferred finish before joining in! Join in on the feeler list and let's get to the maximum discount tier level!

The feeler list is quickly growing, with many that are on the fence of joining after they have chosen their desired finish! Let's get to the maximum discount tier level so everyone gets the best pricing!

Making our way towards the next discount tier! The payment period will officially start in one week, let's get to the maximum discount tier so that the deepest discount will be already applied upon opening the payment period!

The feeler list is moving along, almost to the next tier already. The payment period opens this Tuesday, and we are very close to the maximum discount tier! Let's make it happen!

Update - Payment Start Date Delay

Update - Payment Start Date Delay

The start date for payment processing will be moved back one day from Tuesday January 28th to Wednesday January 29th, as we make final adjustments to our checkout process. This delay will add an additional day for members to join, pushing us closer to our 101+ participant goal. We currently have 81 members signed up, which moves everyone to the new $175 discount tier. We are 20 members away from reaching the maximum discount. Remember, anyone can join this Group Buy at any time up until the payment period closes, so we'll almost certainly reach the maximum discount.

If anyone experiences technical difficulties after the new start date, orders can also be submitted over the phone.

Tomorrow will be the first day of the payment period, and we only need 12 more people to open the payment period with the maximum discount level of $200 off and free shipping*! Let's get that extra $25 off for everyone in the Group Buy, spread the word!
