    Thanks for the side marker comments, I haven't seen many pics to compare the clear vs smoked on a black V.

    Get smoked for black car. I held up his clear markers next to my car and didn't like the look. They standout, rather then blending in. On his silver, it's the opposite.... unless you're going for the blacked out look on a silver car which I don't like.

    Mine with OEM STS-V fogs and smoked markers... not sure who made them, got them from another forum member when at Summit Point.

    I also put in silver coated bulbs that were orange so not to have that egg yolk look to my clear fogs. I put orange sidemarker bulbs. And... 6K LEDs in the city light. Clipped the pin for the DRL a long time ago.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    Seems like there would be a sticky or section for group buys for parts. Seems they would get noticed more. I read so many times when people find out about a group buy after they had just purchased the item. Sometimes because they are not on here much and sometimes because of the section its listed in or if the thread has fallen to the bottom. There are so many parts and mods that are interchangeable between different models that if the group buys were more noticeable I believe more people would join in. just my $.02

    Ok, I was following this under the general section and had sent a message to fre1102. What do I need to do next?

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    Hey fre1102, it looks like we have 3 additional people after you last posted a "confirmed" list. Would you mind checking with the supplier and seeing if 13 would make the cut? I have to believe that being this close they would let it slide. I would love to have them by next weekend to install while I'm doing some other work on the V.

    Just send a PM to fre1102 and tell him that you're in and give him your email address (I think?).



    That should be 15 ... Anyone heard anything from fre1102 recently?

    I haven't heard anything from fre1102, in his absence I've been trying to keep a current list.

    In the absence of any communication from fre1102, I inquired to the vendor about the next step now that we've got 15. Here's what he said:

    Me:
    Dear neondials,

    Hello. I'm a member of "Cadillac Forums" where a "Group Buy" has been being worked on for the past few months. You've been in contact with a couple different people who've been trying to organize the buy, and now I'm another. The last guy who was organizing things seems to have gone MIA, and we're now at 14 confirmed people (15 including him, but nobody's heard from him for a bit).
    I wondered about how this can all be completed the easiest in terms of placing the orders, payments, etc. Since nobody's who's organizing this is looking to make any money on the deal, can people place the order directly to you and just mention the group buy for the discount? Or perhaps you could send Paypal invoices to each of them, stating the discounted price and so on.
    I know the last guy was compiling a list of email addresses and other specifics from people interested in the buy, but I'm not sure of what you guys had arranged in terms of actually placing the orders.
    Thanks!

    - 1fastcaddyv

    HIM:
    Dear 1fastcaddyv,

    Hello,
    Thank you for your contact in regards to organize a group buy for the foglights. We did recall talking to a member from the forum back in JAN 2013 and below are all of the info we exchanged with him. Thank you.:

    Dear fastone27,

    If you are looking to get only the CTS-V foglights without the side marker lights, we can do $225.00 shipped within US 48 Continental States, and that's about 20% discount per set.
    Of course I hope not to hear back from other members for this incentive for the previous purchases they already made weeks or months ago.

    If you are the organizer of initiating to form a group buy, I suppose you are able to make some profit out of this too, but the best discount we can give is 20% if you are able to gather 15 members. Thank you.


    - neondials

    Dear fastone27,

    Hello again,
    Thank you for your response. Would you please confirm whether you'd prefer the smoke side markers or the clear ones?? I have attached two links for you two see:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-2007-CA...item484ed69955

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/2003-2004-20...item5d38315f2c

    The best we can offer for the combo deal of CTS-V foglights + SMOKE or CLEAR side markers is $250.00 shipped within US 48 Continental States. Thank you.

    - neondials


    Dear fastone27,

    Hello again,
    Thank you for your reply. That's fine and your discount code for this group buy will be AAC9T5S7-V.

    However, the 20% discount is ONLY offered when the requirement is met, as we do not offer this top discount to individual customer.

    Therefore, the numbers of the transactions must meet the requirement we previously disclosed to you before the 20% discount kicks in. Thank you for your understanding.

    - neondials

    ME:
    Dear neondials,

    Thanks for the info. It's unclear to me exactly how you'd like the orders to be placed though. Care to explain?

    - 1fastcaddyv

    HIM:
    Thank you for your response. The purpose of my previous message sent to you is to let you know the deal I have given to another member from the forum and see if this is the term you accept.

    The payment methods we currently accept are Bank Wire Transfer, Money Order or Paypal (must register in United States with confirmed credit card billing address and verified account).

    The price offering is merely for US Domestic 48 Continental States only, this excludes the International buyers from other countries, as well as the US territories such as VI and PR.

    The GB (Group Buy) members can submit the payment to us via paypal with the given code specified in the payment note. Please advise if you guys would like the price quote for just the foglights or with the side marker lights. Thank you.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    Thanks for making contact with him, but after reading the above, I'm not sure where we currently stand. It sounds like we would still have to have 15 individuals make a transaction with him with the given code in a short amount of time for us to get the lights in a timely manner at the discount.

    In a nutshell, I'm still not sure how this guy is wanting to proceed. Not to be Mr. Negative, but we're still counting on all 14 or 15 individuals to follow through on this and place the order with the code to get the discount, and given that the original organizer and others have already backed out....I'm not going to hold my breath.

    Let us know how to proceed. To be honest, if we haven't figured something out by the end of next week, I'm probably going to place an order with him. I'm compiling stuff that I'm going to be doing to my car when I get some time, and these are one of those items I'll be needing. Thanks again for taking the lead on this.

    Re: Ebay - CLEAR FOGS

    By no means was I trying to "take the lead" but I, like you, would like to see the ball rolling on this ASAP and thougt it'd help to get in touch with this guy.

    As for how to proceed - it looks like we all need to start placing orders with this guy. I just realized that he hasn't provided a PayPal address to send the money to, so I'll inquire about that and post back with the info.

    As you said - it's going to boil down to all 15 of us that've confirmed to send their payments/orders to him (with code AAC9T5S7-V), and once all 15 have been received by him, he'll fulfill the orders. That's how I understand it's supposed to go down.

    I suppose another option would be that everyone send ME their payments and order specifics, and once I collected all of them I could submit a single order for everyone. Off the top of my head, a few issues I forsee with this are 1)PayPal fees for the money being sent to me, then again sent to the vendor, 2) I'm going to be the one to take all the shit if something goes wrong and the deal somehow falls through, 3) If all 15 guys don't fulfil their commitment, I'd have to "refund" the monies to those who did and I believe that may involve fees as well (which I'm not willing to absorbe).

    Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions? Anyone want to admit now that they're plannong on bailing out on this, so we don't all waste our time?
