Thanks SteveI assume you've thought of offering a tuning shop an exclusive deal?
Once i have the diffs in my possession, I will have met my first objective of having a Quaife ATB for my UP GTI. Secondly i can offer the unwanted diffs to other enthusiasts. As a long term third objective, i would like any other owner / enthusiasts to be able to purchase a unit for themself.
If Quaife were to produce another batch of 10 and keep them in stock, that continues the supply.
One of the big issues surrounding all this is that the UP GTI is actually a budget car and I wonder how many ordinary owners are willing to spend the sort of money that a diff costs for the benefits. Personally, I think its one of the best upgrades out there (excluding power increases).
I am a professional investor and right now I can make more money investing in stocks and funds than committing a chunk of money on ATB diffs with an uncertain take-up.
If anybody on this forum wants to discuss commercial ideas / deals around the UP GTI ATB with Quaife themselves, I have no problem with that.
I welcome any feedback.
