    If your list is NOS stuff then its a pretty nice start I could also do a bit of rummaging and make a list. My parts are used, but working. Plenty of Q4 parts and also generic 155 parts, including the resistor and rustfree and straight rear skinny wings for example.

    My hot list is:
    N/S wing mirror, electric and air-con sender
    Overhead console for cars with sunroof, including rear view mirror

    I have many parts too that I upgrade to my car. They are used in perfect condition and I didn't think to sell them but maybe for someone they would be necessary. I will make a list tomorrow

    You obviously got over excited when you saw the resistor pack at the top of my list. Number 5 on the list is the overhead console for sunroof etc.

    Dragging the thread back on topic.
    Given the positive support for the idea, and the possibility that there will be quite a good selection of member stock from the off, I think it is getting close to the time to decide yes or no.
    I will try to draw up a terms and conditions form for joining the consortium, taking into account everything that has been discussed on here so far.

    The only other issue is the joining fee. I will start another thread with a poll so you can all give your views easily.

    Cheers again.

    Great idea, but for me it's the cost as I'm unemployed at present.

    Well, the route we are going down at the moment means that the consortium will be run along the lines of a club, so joining at a later date won't be a problem.

    So does anyone out there want to get a little more involved in all of this and help me sort some of the details out?
    I just feel that people would have more confidence in all of this if it was handled by more than just 1 person.

    Hi everyone, details are progressing on the consortium idea in the background at the moment. Hopefully we should be ready to move forward in the next few days.

    Thanks everyone for your input.

    If I was in central Europe, or England, it would be amazing opportunity. but I'm in Greece and the shipping of the parts would cost more than the parts themself.

    I've just had a check online, and certainly sending small/medium sized items to Greece is no more expensive than sending them to Spain for example. I guess its because you are part of the EU.

    Careful now, the unwritten rule on here is no politics and no religion. Well unless there is a cheap gag at stake, so I guess you're alright then.

    Well it looks like you will be staying in the EU anyway, so I need not have worried.
