    Vehicle : Vectra C Estate

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 1.9 CDTi


    Default Group Tech2

    Not sure if this has been mentioned before but who would be interested in contributing to buying a tech2/vaux com for the UK groups?

    This could be posted out to the R/O's before a meet (I bet this would increase the number of people at a meet and may have to limit the number of people wanting work per meet)

    Obviously the RO and aRO would have to get to know the kit in order to offer free (or maybe a small fee to cover insured postage charges) tech2 sessions and there should be people familiar enough with the kit to help out with this.

    I know I'd contribute £20~30 (maybe more) and I'm sure there'd be a lot of people that would benefit.

    Just a thought..feel free to laugh.

    PS. Anyone contributing gets first go

    I know, but we have a lot of members, and a lot of them would want a tech2 session at some point.

    I think it would work better if a tech 2 was bought, then a small fee was charged at the meet... in small i mean £5 or £10,

    I Know it means a n initial outlay which will prob not be possible but i cant see it working any other way.

    at £10 a pop it would be paid for after 300 uses and 600 uses for £5 a pop...

    I dont thinks it feasable tbh..

    Nice idea, and not wishing to pee on anyone's camp fire - but the logistics alone for this would be a nightmare I reckon.

    If you had even 50 people chip in £50 to get £2500 (sort of going rate for a used Tech 2 with the CanBus module) then those 50 people are going to want access to the Tech 2 at various points - as they paid for it. Shipping it would be expensive and inevitably some people are going to want it at the same time - so who gets it first? Who keeps hold of it and who takes it along to any regional meets to use on other members' card (for a fee of course) - if one of the 50 'owners' isn't going to be there?

    Like I said, not being negative but I can't help but see how the logistics wouldn't be a nightmare.

    Don't forget - there are some folks (not many though) that have Vaux-COM (me being one) and one with a proper Tech 2 who, when they can, help out folks.

    I hate to admit it, but I agree with Duncan. Not wanting to pee on anyones parade, but it would be a nightmare to control.

    I think it is a good idea can I keep it. Just like every other member is thinking. It is a nice idea but has too many pitfalls.
