Gauging Interest: HMS Preformance rear fender flare group buy

I'd like to see what kind of interest I can get going in a group buy for the HMS Performance. Long story short, they will let you mount 305s (and in some cases 315s) on the back of your W204. This is a far sight better than the 275s we can fit on our cars stock. Guys running FBO, and supercharger kits could definitely benefit from this!

As you can see, it's 4 pieces for each side.


Here is a set installed and painted.


Keep in mind, this is pretty much non-reversible. It will involve cutting and welding.


http://www.hms-tuning.de/en/products...s/c63/#bodykit
Here they are on HMS Performance's website, at ~$2400.

I would need a minimum of 7 people (so, 6 aside from me) to make this happen. Price would be ~$2200 shipped to you.

Let me know what you guys think!

You do know that Ernst gets them for like $2100, and already has shown that his setup with customs etc is seamless, right?

Thought it was originally locked because he wasnít a vendor. He became a vendor and it unlocked. Now it looks like heís not anymore. Maybe thatís it I donít know.

Then why did you feel the need to come in and make a spiteful post?

How was my original post spiteful? I was trying to point out that there was already a proven source in place (I thought), before you went through all the hassle to setup your own deal. Relax.

You're not worth it.

I'll put you down as a 'no' for any fender flares.

Per MBWorld rules. You must be a vendor to set up group buys.

I had a temporary vendor account for my #2 HMS Group Buy. Unfortunately, it was 1-2 members short and I couldn't get enough interest back then and cancelled it.

Now you can order direct from HMS-Tuning now but you will still have to pay for shipping + customs/duty = roughly around $3,500~$4,000+ USD all done and said.

If you guys want to save and do the group buy route if you don't mind the wait. I would be glad to do a #3 Group Buy.

I spoke to G_Money because he was interested in doing another Group Buy in hopes to invigorate the interest again so there is no conflict of interest of anything.

Thank you! I am just trying to get a good price for myself and hopefully a few other owners. What ive listed is my cost. The way I see it, my payment is fender flares at $1500 off.

Unless you have an agent overseas, you will be paying a lot more than you think because HMS is not in control of the export tax/duty. We pay all the import tax/duty, our broker, shipping supplies, etc and year end business tax.

HMS Tuning has always supported MBWorld and will continue to in the future. I will speak to Markus @ HMS and some of the admins on here to see if we can bring back the HMS thread for GB #3 !

So, you and I would be 2 so far. I went back and PMed everyone that was good to go on the last list before the thread was locked, and if all of them are still interested, that would actually put us at 7!

For those who have done this mod, what was your install cost/time? Shoot me a PM if you don't want to announce to the world. Thanks in advance.

They are 100% handlaid FRP (Fiberglass). When you prep for installation. You will need to trim the factory metal fenders. Once cut, the 2 layers of metal sandwiched together will come undone and this is the portion you should weld back together and reseal.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
