    Mr Ed

    I think they are just a little cheaper in the UK as RZ said but if you compare the pound to the Aussie dollar you might work out that the poms are getting ripped off, instead of us.
    I do agree that he came here to pedal his stuffs and i don't think they would give us a discount either.

    Speedflow hasn't been too clear in his posts, but i don't think we need to hammer the guy over a question you should already of worked out yourselves? plus you cunts were asking the wrong Q's all along.

    Have used most types of AN fittings over the years.. earls, speedflow, aeroquip.

    IMO Speedflow shit on the rest (quality, design, availability) from a great height.... even at almost twice the price id not even be tempted to look elsewhere.

    here for the Gangba...

    Oh fuck, I missed it.

    Welcome Speedflow.
    I attended the PF vs Powerchip thread 2010 and all I got was this lousy Signature.

    Came for the drinks, but stayed for the gangbang.

    How is he going to be useful to have on your side? Is he going to give you cheaper prices because you give him good old Aussie welcoming blow jobs? No, hes going to charge you more than he would if you lived in the UK.

    He didnt come here to contribute, he came here to sell stuff.
    By same you mean a different brand manufactured in a different country? Or are you referring to the 40c price difference between Australia and the UK?

    No, the $3.15 price difference once the product is on the other side of the world.

    6.85 = $10.96 AUD

    I tried to organise a discount for PF'ers but that apparently has to go through the state distributors.

    It's a bit hard for some businesses , have you ever called up any big workshops? usually they have a secretary who answers and when you ask a tech Question the put you on to a mechanic. Most businesses cant afford to have another mechanic not working and just answering Questions on the internet.

    The guy probably knows a thing or two about fittings, he could probably sort out someone who was in a tight spot and needed something unique, quick.

    Maybe he could assist with sponsorship of a pf members race car?

    Maybe he could administer CPR to a pf member at the beach, who fucking knows?

    Its ok though, looks like he has given up. I guess he should have taken the bait and started arguing, so he could prove himself more.

    Oh for sure, i fully understand this, i meant in terms of speaking with Speedflow themselves which whenever i've called have been more than helpful.

    The main (real) argument here was they cost more than some brands overseas and he answered that the reason for that was that the Speedflow gear was made here and the local wages are higher than in China, where most other brands are made.
    One unresolved point was the apparent costs of freighting the units around Aus and other places.
    I'd like to see him make a bit of an effort to get the state distributors to please give us some kind of discount, as a lot of us here prefer the Speedflow brand over others.

    and there are loads of people who do that without their first post being a blatant add. Look at Dale, TK and Scott, plenty of advice and good info given which has seen plenty of work go there way without the blantant sales pitch.

    ps, forums with paid advertising generally suck balls because you can never recommend anything outside the forum sponsors and anything said even slightly negative about sponsors = instaban no matter how true.

    Go check out LS1.com.au to see how it fucks up a website. We paid cash to keep this place running so that it wouldn't need to have paid advertising and the problems that it brings

    Maybe so

    Maybe if when I said "from memory" heres some cheaper prices of the same stuff, he could have replied with "No, we dont sell our product through that company or in the US". I would think that is information a salesman for the company would know off hand and would be happy to mention.

    I have admitted fault for the incorrect mention of the products from JEGS. I sent the bandwagon rolling, but I handed the brakes to SPEEDFLOW and he was too busy chatting up some people in the back row.

    We should organise a PF Speedflow account and do monthly purchases for discounted prices? Bill will administer and be paid in beer?

    Probably because he considered it a question that was irrelevant to his business. He let plenty of other insulting shit from the first page go through to the keeper as well.

    The UK pricing would have set at some point when the distribution arrangement was set up. At that point in time, the exhange rate would have been different. The agreement would likely have stated the agreed exchange between the manufacturer and the distributor for a period of time, intervals at which it could be reviewed and an agreed recommended retail price all so that the manufacturer could reach their desired margin. Given the size of the market in the UK, they might have determined to reduce the margin on individual items in order to better compete with other products, and hope to make that up by selling increased volume. Maybe they didn't and if you compared the price of the day in AUD vs GBP, it might well have been the same.

    Now the AUD is stronger against the GBP, the GBP price is cheaper. But the agreements remain in place. So the someone is now losing out more than they were when the agreement was set. In a lot of cases, this is usually the manufacturer.

    By todays exchange rate yes. I would think that it would make more of a business sense to provide a discount to a distributor to get both your name and product recognised and established in a country that hasn't stocked the brand before.

    I checked some other prices on the speedflow.co.uk website, the price difference for this item is a little over $8 CHEAPER here in Australia.

    This item is also about 30cents cheaper in Aus

    edit - bahaimus beat me to the 1st point...

    Guys, I sent an email to Speedflow as I feel that they could be of benefit to all.

    Hi Matt

    Thanks for your concern.

    Aaron is an employee of Speedflow and he was just letting everyone know that we had a new catalogue available.

    Our company has not done much advertising in the past as we believe our products sell so well by referrals.
    We have decided to become more proactive and were willing to help people with their questions.
    But if this is the type of people we will encounter on some forums then this is not a useful environment for us.

    Obviously some people out there have issues and will never understand (and do not want to know!) why it cost so much to manufacture in Australia rather than China and have no interest or pride in supporting our local economy.
    We have more to worry about than uniformed guys on keyboards that are only looking to be trouble and not discuss in a constructive manner.

    I have told Aaron he is to take no further part in the discussion on this Forum and I do not want any further part if we cannot help out productively.



    I believe Aaron is arranging to send catalogues out to you, thanks for interest and I hope these will be helpful.

    If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact me.


    Best Regards
