Hey guys, just gauging interest in a small group buy for Ohlins Road and Track DFV coilovers for 335i's. I had spoken to a couple members about this but thought maybe someone else would be interested.

Here's the breakdown:

If in California, there will be tax. No tax outside of CA.

If interested, just message me or post in this thread and I'll get it ordered for you.

What about for mixed set of dampers only? Aka without springs? 335i front and M3 rear? They willing to custom valve? Stock ohlins valving is pretty inappropriate for spring rates that should be used.

I will ask for you. Yes they will custom valve. And just a heads up, stock Ohlins valving will handle 700-800 lb/in springs no problem, I believe [email protected] confirmed that years ago.

Update on this... They are going to figure out if they can do a mixed set for you. Custom valving is a go. It's going to cost more obviously but I'll get you a quote by next Wednesday.

Would need valving to handle 6k front and 18k rear. All else good. And thanks!

Another question, who is the vendor and are they going to take the orders. I'd like to chat with them directly if at all possible.

They asked me not to post that publicly because they're not trying to advertise these prices directly due to their relationship with Ohlins and "expected" pricing, but I can PM you so you can get in touch and ask any questions you'd like. They're going to be handling all the processing etc, I'm just putting this out there and getting a list of guys who want sets.

Totally understandable. Thanks.

California always has a catch. Ridiculous

Its because the company is located in California. If you live outside of California, you are probably responsible for reporting and submitting the sales tax yourself. They just aren't responsible for collecting it anymore, the buyer probably is.

Without a doubt

Just wanted to update this and let you all know that unfortunately the group buy is cancelled. I really wanted to put this together for the community but Ohlins sees it differently. They do not want any group buys or discounts going on for their products and they made sure to shut it down as fast as they could.

Of course, they never directly contacted me to help me set this up nor do they really seem to care about the business they'd receive.

No good deed goes unpunished I guess. Really sorry and I tried my best.

Thank you for everyone that responded and was interested.
