Hi All,

Well, it's been well over a year since the last Group Buy for these was done (can't believe how fast that has gone) and we've had a fair few new members and Cobra owners join in since that time, so I'm looking at doing another Group Buy for the Cobra related banners

See these for the previous ones:

Part 1
http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/group-buys/39409-cobra-related-banners-garage-etc.html

Part 2
http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/group-buys/40421-cobra-banners-part-2-a.html?highlight=%2Bcobra+%2Bbanner

Part 3
http://www.cobraclub.com/forum/group-buys/42847-cobra-banners-part-3-a.html?highlight=%2Bcobra+%2Bbanner

Prices have increased slightly since last GroupBuy, but, as those who got them last time would testify, they are still a good purchase.

They are Shelby Authorised and printed on 18oz external grade vinyl with eyelets - bloomin' good quality too.

I'll do the order in the same format as the last ones as it seemed to work very well.

Let me know what type/design, size & color you want and add it to the list

e.g:

somebody - 1 x blue side profile banner (2x4)
somebody - 1 x cobra logo (3x3)

etc, etc

I'll let this run for a few weeks or so to ensure we catch those who don't visit very often.

No money required from anyone initially. I'll pay for them and work out costs once everything has arrived in the UK. Main uncertainty is how much VAT & Import duty will be levied on them - past GB's has seen about £50 or so onto the total cost.

If you have any questions, just post them here

So, over to you :D

I had a banner previously and they are good.

But are you sure they are Shelby authorised?
The sidepics of the cobra are some sort of replica, I dont think they are CSX Shelbys - the cars are wearing TeamIII bolt-on wheels!

Hi Kev,

Yep, they are Official Shelby Licensed products - not sure if that means the same thing - lol, but you know what Shelby was like as regards to anyone using his logo/cobra name without permission etc - down on em like a ton of bricks i believe.

So unlikely they would be allowed without his say so or approval

If so put me down for a "GT500 Shelby Cobra Emblem 24" x 48" banner" please

Like this one http://item.mobileweb.ebay.com/viewitem?itemId=220708885448

i can also confirm the quality of these banners to anyone new. Very very nice indeed.

Hi Tommy-boy/LordG

Oops, i'd completely forgotten about this - lol :D

There had been very little response to it that it was not going to be worth while ordering them, so i'd just forgotten about it.

We need to have at least 12 or so banners to make it worth while, so now it's been bumped up again, i'll let it run to end of May and see how we stand then.

LordG - can you add what type/how many etc you want to the thread (same format as others) it'll give me a better idea of what we need

Hi LordG/All,

Suppliers have confirmed the banner costs based on the figure i gave them :) - i'm just waiting for a paypal request from them, and confirmation on the shipping still being free.

Just to let you all know, it can take a month or so for everything to happen based on previous Group buys

Updates will appear as and when i've got some :)

27-06-13, 09:29 PM
Just a quick explanation re payment:

No problem with me paying for it all :) if people change their minds, i'd doubt i'd have any trouble selling them to others so not really a problem.

Also, because i don't now what we are going to get hit for on import & VAT etc i don't no the exact total as yet :( - once the package arrives in the UK and i get the nice letter from Post Office asking for HMRC's slice of the pie, i can work out the totals then :)

hi All,

A quick update for everyone......

The banners have arrived in the UK - hooray :D , they are waiting for me at the Post office to collect and pay the HRMC Ransom, erm Import duty - booo! :( on them, and christ it's gone up this time round :cry: . Not sure if we were lucky the first 3 times and we only got charged a reduced VAT rate or what, but the VAT cost has quadrupled from 2011 even though VAT is still the same amount.

I'm just working out the totals for all of you and will let you know costs via PM this thread.

The banners have arrived in the UK - hooray :D , they are waiting for me at the Post office to collect and pay the HRMC Ransom, erm Import duty - booo! :( on them, and christ it's gone up this time round :cry: . Not sure if we were lucky the first 3 times and we only got charged a reduced VAT rate or what, but the VAT cost has quadrupled from 2011 even though VAT is still the same amount.

I'm just working out the totals for all of you and will let you know costs via PM this thread.

regards
Gary

sounds like your trying to get a months mortgage payment out of us all G!!! Hehe ;-)

looking forward to getting them. Are you going to Silverstone Classic? Will you be taking a load if so to save on postage?

Hi Tommy,

Lol, the total cost would cover our mortgage and the Cobs insurance - hehe, i think we have just been very fortunate with past orders.

I'll be collecting them on Monday from the PO depot, and i'm coming to Silverstone also - will be there on the Friday, for the whole weekend :D

To save on postage, i can bring those also going to Silverstone along with me.

The other can be collected if close enough, or posted, i'll shop around for best costs, as Royal Mail are a bit of a rip off now.

Gary

forgot to add some figures for you

Our exchange rate at the time of purchase was $1.47753 so a bit crap compared to previous orders, also, Our HRMC Import bill this time round was £129.71 - :cry::shock: - bloody robbin barstewards. Now the good news was that we got the banners at a reduced rate from that on Ebay, so that has took a bit of the sting out (I hope when you get your totals ;) ).

Based on the above, can those who ordered banners let me know which of the following you want to do:

1. Collect from Silverstone
2. Me to post to you - no idea on costs currently for this, but it did add an unwelcome amount to the totals - especially the 3x3 Logo banners
3. Collect from me - I based in Leeds, so anyone close by is welcome to pop over and pickem up :D

If you can reply either on here or PM me which, i can sort out them all out.

If anyone is shocked by the costs and wants to change their minds, then let me know via PM (obviously, this is after i've given you your total :D )

regards
Gary

I will also aim to collect on the Sunday at Silverstone please Gary.

But with work commitments I'm still not 100% sure I'm free. So I will pay first via bank transfer or PayPal or whatever you prefer, and if I don't go to Silverstone I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

Hi all,

further update:

My lovely wife (if she reads this :) ) collected the parcel from the useless royal mail place - took her over half an hour for the idiots to sort themselves out and actually serve her. Then she hands over our life savings, sorry i mean the VAT bill and returns home.

It's a big parcel and heavy, no different to that last orders, so no idea why the VAT bill was so high this time round :(

Anyways, over this next week i'll be sorting out the postal costs and everything else, so watch out for a PM etc.

Just had a quick check over, and they are upto their usual excellent quality and standard, i just hope i've got them all correct for you lot :D

Thanks for doing this Gary (and Mrs Gary for collecting them). Regarding the VAT I'm guessing you got off light the last few times. They should charge it on the total bill ie... Cost of Goods, Shipping and Import Duty.

Hi All,

Sorry for delay in getting any postage/total costs to you all - just been really busy and not getting time to do the hunting for prices.

Anyhow, i've managed tonite and postage costs are going to be from £6.50 upwards (cost includes the postal tubes) with the single 18"x36" banner obviously being the cheapest @ £6.50

Postage will be via Parcel2Go service and MyHermes with Signed for and Compensation taken to the level to cover the parcel - postage costs have risen quite a bit and they add considerably to the costs, hence my other options for Silverstone collection or pickup from me, or any other ways you can think of.

Generally, they are a bloody ripoff, what with HMRC taking their slice of the pie too, and it makes the idea behind this Groupbuy (to get some good stuff and save on shipping/postage etc by buying in bulk) a waste of time :( - so i think this will be the last one I do.

I'll start PM'ing you all shortly with your costs, if you any issues/want to change you minds etc, please let me know.

regards
Gary

Don't beat yourself up too much Gary. I reckon the price you are charging us actually equates to less than the current price on ebay without any vat or import duty added on! So in my book it's cheap. Thanks for doing it. :-)

A quick update for those waiting for their banners as it's all gone a bit quiet.

It's been a bit of a manic week this week unfortunately and it hasn't finished with the weekend either, and i've struggled to actually get any banners posted i'm afraid :( - in trying to sort out the cheapest way to get them to you all, it's taking longer to sort due to having to organise collection of them rather than just popping down to the post office and saying post these.

Don't worry, i've not done a runner (i've not got the energy anyway, lol :D ) , but they will definately all be collected/shipped within a few days of this coming week.

If any problems, please let me know

regards
Gary

Has anyone heard from LordG & MarkCL recently - any ideas if they are away on holiday or some such?

I've still got their banners here and i've not heard from them or had any replies for 2-3 weeks (very possible they are on holiday) just wondering if they still want them or not.

cheers
