X-brace group buy

I posted this here because I thought there would be more trafic.
Would anyone be interested in having a group buy on an X-brace?
I saw some decent prices on them lately.

A) i'm a sponsor, if you find someone who will give you discounted x-braces for a group buy, i will run the GB

B) x-braces are very expensive to ship, and not that expensive at the dealer imo (180?)

C) K-O performance was recently selling em for i believe 140 shipped to canada, i doubt we'll get better prices than that though

having said that, i need one, so do your thing./

They can and will make the odd exception... but I doubt they would do so for a large group buy as it could mean a lot of hassle for them.

It bugs me that people living in the United States can pick these braces up for $99 when our money is at par. I paid close to $200 for one of them last summer from Rocco and you know he wouldn't rip me off.

I'm in for one for my 325iS if the price is right.

Tischer is selling them for $110 including the install kit.
KO is a little higher I think.
I'll call them Mon or Tues and see what they say.
Anyone have friends or family in the Buffalo area we can ship to?

Tischer has indeed confirmed that they cannot ship to Canada. Waiting for a reply on why.
Also waiting for a reply from KO.
I'll try to find someone local as well.
