Lovefest?

Now don't you all take this the wrong way, but...

Man, seems like everyone loves Calmini now, as long as they are offering group buy discounts on gears.[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Glad to see they are able to take care of everyone. Nice that a vendor has 100 gear sets on the shelf ready to ship. Happy that is is benefiting both sides.

This has possibilities. Group buys may be the way for folks to multiply their buying power and get great deals, and vendors get to make large one-shot sales. Want C3 bumpers? Get a group with money in hand together. Want custom BS rims? Get with a group. Want anything? Pool your resources.

But waiting for others to step to the plate before riding coat tails is not the way it's going to happen. That's like waiting to be the last man out of the foxhole. Kinda cowardly IMO. You want the gears? Ante up.

*wishing he had the flow to go with the 5.8 deal*

Re: Lovefest?

The only problem I see with these deals is the pressure to buy them. Not from anyone here , but the power within. The little voice that says " Don't worry about the Hydro bill, go for it", or " We don't need food this week, you neeeed the gears". I have seen it TOO many times.

"Have to sell my ****e!!! ....getting divorced and she wants half?!?!?!?!?

or

" I have allready maxed out all my credit cards, and I still need the gears!!!!!!!!!"

Please , be smart, if it ain't in your pocket now, it's not going to be there next month either.

Re: Lovefest?

hey YT...I got my money in my stinky little fist and I will be calling up them Calmini guys right quick. I wasn't waiting for someone else to jump in the lava, I was waiting to find the $$$.

I'm not a 'waiting type.' Evidence: Who was the first to sign up for Zookin 2k2?
