    Herbert, each seller has his/her own source of securing the items. Yes, you may suggest where is a better place to do order from etc but if the seller have purchased the item at a higher cost, does that mean that he/she is required to sell the item a current market price, at a lost? And I believe as a VP of the Club, to accuse someone of marking up 100% without any solid proof, is highly disrepectful.

    Again, with no intention to bring up the old cases but I believe selective prosecution is at play again this time around.

    You may proceed to close this thread if you wished to.

    Herbert,
    I doubt wingzee is trying to make a fast buck from just 2 additional item from this sales. Different supplier have quote different prices for the same item. Though they look the same but some do not work the same as advertised. I know for a fact coz one of the guy bought the diagnostic tool from a different source but it did not work when I used it on my laptop. They managed to solve the problem when I told them about the link between pin 7 & 8. (see anaksarawak posting)

    In addition, there are hidden charges involves for each supplier. The hidden charges are the freight charges. The freight charges varies depend on which company is used. Even the prices quoted varies among UPS, DHL, EMS etc etc. Also another hidden charges incurred is the 3% charges by paypal for the transaction.

    The last I check from my previous source, the price have even reduced. It used to be around USD60 + USD10 (freight) per piece

    BMW INPA K+CAN
    $61.07

    [​IMG]
    BMW INPA K+CAN
    $46.79 $35.99
    The latest price listed is USD36.

    To be honest, I did make some "extra" from the GB. This was because of the "saving" in the freight charges due to the higher than expected response. and yes, there were some people in the club hinted that I make a big "bundle" from the GB. This is one of the reason why I never organize another GB after the incident. FYI, I have donate the proceed to one of the club charity drive as an anonymous donor..

    wingzee, herbert is not targeting you or any person for that matter. Come tonight for the OTT and we play with our diagnostic tool.

    Wingzee,

    From your above post, it seems you or your seller have yet to place order for the item. Can you be transparent and show proof from where you or your seller is buying the item? I have shown proof http://www.obdchina.com/bmw-inpa-k-dcan-usb-interface-p-126.html#show where the item can be purchased from and for your information, I have just placed an order online and price is RM142.54.00 after conversion from USD to RM including courier charges.

    Show us the proof that you or your seller has purchased the item at a higher cost.

    You can call it selective prosecution or whatnot and as the CM, I am here to protect the interest of our members and not allow anyone to take advantge of our members.

    Herbert, if you are pursuing the matter this way, I will be ordering from this this seller: http://www.ebay.com/itm/MINI-BMW-US..._Automotive_Tools&hash=item4d0a39e4b7&vxp=mtr

    Item came up up to about RM200 each with normal delivery (additional charges apply for expedited shipping). Yes, there may be other sites selling much cheaper but at least I have a peace of mind that cable is working perfectly without any hitch unlike the bad experience I had with cheaper ones.

    There are plenty of items on sale at the moment which can be obtained from other sources at much cheaper rates that what some OMs are offering, can those be referred as a case where OMs are trying to reap a profit from their sales? Can those postings be moderated and scrutinised in the same way?

    Whatever it is, I have decided to stop the sales. I honestly do not think the Club's sales section is a good avenue for conducting sales if wild accusations are allowed and can be made by the CM/moderators without any proof, even though the main objective is to protect the all CG/OM's interest. I have nothing against that but a more thorough investigation or discussion should be made first, prior to such accusations in the public.

    Herbert I agree with you. Why is this so expensive? I mean this is happening too often kan? You see my 1 year old E90 325 only valued at RM175k by BMW Premium Selection but I see so many other cars being sold at high prices. Can you also look into that? This should really be policed by you. Its great that you are here to ensure that prices are fair. Do something about the rest also ok. You best check what is the fair value for those car.

    Next is to ensure that all sellers provide products of quality. This is a must la. BMWCOM Forum is the only official club so it represents the epitomy of quality that comes with joy of ownership!

    Members should not make hefty profits right?

    i feel sorry for u la bro wingzee that this thing happened. this really looks bad on u.

    i still dont understand why people want to interfere in other people business. if u dont like it then dont buy lah. it's a willing seller willing buyer kind of thing. some people are trying to be a hero or what. why didnt this issue is privately solved instead of revealing it openly in the first place.

    i am merely a CG and i dont sell things but i think what happened is wrongly done. and pardon my manglish.

    Ok let's be frank now. I firmly believe that in a capitalist market we are free to set the price in any manner we like. It's also known as price discretion. What is important is that there is no misleading trade description.

    As a forumer, one should not go and meddle with another in such a manner. It's plain RUDE. How would you feel if I started going around questioning every sale? Maybe I go to some car sale thread and say this is too expensive ... The proper price should be XXX because of this and that. To make things worse, I am not even keen to purchase it.

    Is this the manner we behave in a forum? Is this how we even behave in real life? Try go to Penang during CNY and visit the Lorong Selamat char koay teow that sells for RM15 per plate and do the same. See what happens.

    Tianci. This is not a free world or PG street. this is the Bmw club Malaysia. Our CMs have come out with a new law, and we should follow without question. As an OM, I feel more protected now. Classifieds is only for OMs and pricing will be cheapest. What more can an OM ask. Hope you understand. If not, I'm sure the CMs can explain it better.

    Why la u two like to quarrel.. support la good initiatives to look after the best interest of members. Where can u find such protection against alleged excessive margin of RM100 on imported BMW items?

    Now clearly membership has its privileges.. we will be told where to source & how to price products. GB will always be cheapest. What more do u want la

    I no quarrel la. I'm supporting this initiative. Tianci is the one who think this is PG pasar malam. Which forum offers lowest prices guaranteed for their members?

    Its not an easy to be a moderator for such popular forum moreover they are just volunteers in the interest of the brand. Bravo to all the moderators but there are many "sensitive fella" here hence mesti jaga air muka.

    I believe many are willing to pay RM220 since wingzee offer to help with the installation of INPA and GT1 plus personal tutorial on how to use them. When I first purchased my INPA cable I almost gave up, its not easy and especially with NCS Expert, plus you never know what you can do to your car. 3 sleepless nights and 2 weekends just to learn how to use INPA and to install GT1, time is precious and I dont mind paying someone to help and to teach me. Bravo to bro aidilj who have helped me understand the software sad he is in Penang and we only communicate via the forum or whatsapp.

    Guys if you think the price is expensive you are welcome to negotiate, we all do. Or you are welcome to pm any of us who are using INPA onwhere we source our cable how much we got them for.

    Lets go TT and continue our DIY projects ya
