[CHECKING] Alex Peper OBD-II Scan Tool

I want to buy one of those things...

I know they had a group buy the Ford Taurus but I think the GB is already closed... because I emailed them and it bounced back.


How about if we open a group buy on that thing ??


IIRC the GB can get up to 30% OFF if more than 15 units.


Here is the link for the Alex Peper OBDII:

If you r interested just post here.

I think the interface was designed to use little computer resources.

Nothing fancy.

Any 386 should be able to use it.

(at least i am hoping for that, cause we have (3) 386 laying around the office... I 'll just take one for me).

He he he....


Regarding the discount... the GB is a good idea.. but actually I could get the student discount anyway....


It doesn't matter... if we gather 10-15 people here we go witht he GB.. if not, I'll buy with the student discount.

I've run it on a 486 SLC/33 w/ 4MB of RAM and no mouse under Windows 3.1. No problems there. A little clunky using it w/o a mouse, but I figured it out.

i'd like to really do this. can we hit 15 serious people.

all u guys with indiglos can accurately set your needles. read your own codes. fix/replace stuff that ford will charge u an arm and a leg for. we dont need 15 people interested in the tricom. u can get whatever one u want. we just need to get 10-15 people. its basically a 2% discount for each person. 20 people would like be 40%. i'm sure alex has a cutoff though.

Re: [CHECKING] Alex Peper OBD-II Scan Tool

Well, we have a couple more people to go before we even reach 10 interested people. I think we should wait a little bit. Maybe set a deadline.

Then we gotta make SURE everybody that's in is really in all the way.

Once we've got all our people, we probably just email Alex at the sales address on his website letting him know we want a group buy, getting specifics and whatnot.

Oh yeah, I'm IN. If this group buy doesn't go through, I'm just gonna get it with the student discount like you BBorges.

Re: [CHECKING] Alex Peper OBD-II Scan Tool

08/28/03 05:31 PM
Re: [CHECKING] Alex Peper OBD-II Scan Tool

OK, here's the scoop. For every person in the group buy, the total discount will increase 2%. The greatest discount we can get through a group buy is 30%.

1 Person: 2% discount
5 People: 10% discount
10 People: 20% discount
15 People or more: 30% discount

Let's get some more people in on this! With our current head count, we can only get a 16% discount.


Here's a copy of the email:
Quote:

Is 2% per quantity up to 30% off. Can mix or match for total. Example 10 = 20% off, 15+ = 30% = $85 each for model PWM use on Ford engine. Includes ship. Can drop ship to each. Will need list of names, emails. Can provide limted time order link.
Thank you,

Greetings,

There is a group of people over on contour.org forums who are interested in getting together for a group buy for your OBD-II scanning equipment.

Nothing is set in stone yet, but I would appreciate it if you could let me know how much of a discount we can get with out many people, additional shipping costs, flexibility with units ordered (e.g. do we all have to buy the same unit or can each person customize their order?) and any other relevant information.


Thanks for your time,

Hey.. thanks for taking the step.


Why don't you take care of the GB ??

Thing is, I've never done a GB... and it seems you know about that.


I would ask you to PM everybody that has posted here and confirm if they are IN/OUT and then give us a list of people that are in.


Hell..... $85 for a model with shipping !!!! That's NOT bad !!!


come on guys... the unit that ONLy readds the code goes for $50 !!! $85 for a complete tool is not bad AT ALL !!

And the package for the Palms go for $250.... out of question.



I will link this page to the Protege forums, trying to get more people buying the thing. If you guys have other forums , please let them know about the GB.

Sorry I haven't posted, I've been busy getting ready for classes.

The headcount right now is at 10, so we're good for 20% off.

I was thinking of setting a deadline in 1 or 2 weeks to see if we can pull in some more people that might not have the money right now. What do you guys think about that?

The headcount looks like it's at 13 right now. How bout the deadline be next Friday? If we're cool with that then I'll make a new post to announce it and type up the details.

Or, if you want the deadline to be a different day just suggest one. I personally think it shouldn't go past next week.

Or, should we just go with what we've got now? 26% ain't too shabby.

Ford uses PWM Subaru uses ISO. If you get a double combo with those two that will work with both of them or for a few bucks more you could get the triple combo and get all three just in case you ever need the GM one.

I have the understanding that the TRICOM has ONE connector that serves all 3 systems.

Now the 3-combo is composed of 3 different connectors.


I dunno, but I have the impression the 3-combo is better because if accidently u break the connector ALL you would have to do is buy a SINGLE connector agains, opposed to losing complete operation and having to buy the TRICOM again.


does that make sense ???


Which way is better ????
