I'm almost tempted to buy another Elise just to do this. If it all works out and people are happy with the end result, how easy will it be to order more? Would you still need a minimum order of 10 units?
It's a violation of forum rules, but I'm already procrastinating enough (I'm technically working on my tax return right now ), we'll deal with it later. We've allowed a few exceptions for paying sponsors but that's it.so now you have two screen names?
is that permitted?
i was going to say this about the fact that the deposit is NONREFUNDABLE, to me thats a deal breaker.wow. just wow.
Your reason is valid, however, the fabrication company's lack of confidence in the market, which I assume is their reason for NOT producing a working prototype first, only raises my (and obviously, others') lack of confidence in their ability to make a working prototype. There are many variables in making something like this viable, and I for one don't want to pay for their R&D while they try to make it work...or not. Just my .02the reason behind the non refundable deposit is to keep people from backing out due to the extreme price difference between having 9 to 10 kits made. Over $1000 for each kit and that would cause the other kits prices to go up significantly. The company wont even start anything without 10 pre orders with deposits. hope that helps to explain my reasons.
You have a valid point. I will be starting a new thread just to gauge interest and discuss technicalities, concerns, ideas, and anything else concerning the kit to begin the process to make sure that people would be interested in this kit and that it is worth my time and money to get going. Also to cool things off i will no longer be posting under this name for less confusion and to maintain the sites rules. my apologies.On a more positive note, if you would have started this thread off with pics of a working prototype, as well as interior and exterior video with the car being put through its paces, I can almost guarantee you the orders would be exceeding your minimum expectations.
