That's what it will take to get them into production. So if too many are on the fence, then it will just die.

I'm with you, but maybe everyone else doesn't think this way.
So look at everything and let me know where you stand, because without 9
it's a NO GO.
Thanks

Custom MK3 engine cover



If people really want an engine cover, "Focus" being on it won't matter.

Why does the price keep rising? I just want an engine cover, painted perhaps.

And matching fusebox and battery cover if possible.

I don't need options. I think there is enough to get the covers going.

If you have people 'on the fence' then you probably need to get all of the correct information and disperse it all at once. I understand that there are different 'options', but you need to know exactly what those are and get the information updated in your original post. Constantly adding or changing information does not bode well with people that have to send their money prior to the actual existence of a product.

Why has the minimum changed from your original post of 8 to suddenly 'without 9
it's a NO GO'
? Your list already exceeds your original post of 8 with enough slack to cover 5 'on the fences'.

Well this is exactly why I didn't want this thread to be a GB, but just a feeler so I could see who was interested, what they wanted, and hoped to pay. Then I could go to the manufacturer and iron out the details before presenting it, but that is not how it worked out. Well the manufacturer raised the minimum on me, when I originally spoke with him he said between 8-10 min, now he's leaning more towards 10, but I figured if I had 9, I would remind him of our original conversation about 8 and I'm sure he would still put it into production.

The problem with that is that unscrupulous members could post and do exactly that and then soak up some members money and skip town. This would obviously anger members and would not reflect well on the site. That is why these precautions are taken. Your original thread started as a feeler and was allowed but quickly grew past that. If it was deemed otherwise it would have been shut down faster. There is a difference between asking members what they would like to see and creating organized ordering lists.

If the manufacturer set the minimum at 8 and is starting to raise that bar, that is a separate issue in itself. But even so, your list already covers it. The way you've presented it just comes off wrong. Perspective is everything, and if you remove your emotion and read through the whole thread you may understand. Put yourself in my shoes-at my end of the internets.

Obviously this item will end up occurring no matter what, as evidenced by the Ebay links. All I'm saying is that you need to coordinate exactly what the item is for the group buy, announce that information, and then stick by it.
