Braille Battery Group Buy

Hi Everyone,
I am trying to organize a group buy on braille batteries.

If we get 3 people it is 10% off
5+ people is 20% off

This is a great way to lighten our cars. The battery and bracket only weight 23 lbs for the largest battery (21lb), the bracket weighs 2lbs.

The retail prices for the batteries are:
B14115 - 11.5lbs - $234.99
B2015 - 15lbs - $244.99
B3121 - 21lbs - $264.99

Between removing the rear spare and stock battey with the braille unit we can save between 60-70lbs. It will definitely be noticeable.

Here are some pics of one installed in an e36:

Yes, the pricing does include the bracket.

The close day is up in the air right now, but probably when we hit 5 people.

I don't have the money to replace my working battery but I'm a sucker for deals. I'll join this groupbuy if someone else will so we can have 5 and make the 20% off level!

I can use the space savings nearly as much as the weight savings. I often carry a donut and a jack. I'm hoping I'll now be able to put my jack in the battery compartment.

I also need to pick up the front control arm kit from HP so I guess we can include that order in with this to help get us to the 20% battery discount. Or maybe we can organize another groupbuy, etc and get something off the control arms too..lol!

That is very possibble. If this is successful then I imagine they would be open to more group buys.
