Auto up windows – the continuing saga
So I decided I would no longer sell the MINI circuit due to the time involved, but I happily discussed & worked with Aaron at OutMotoring for him to sell the circuit – I started the process by ordering parts.
Then, the MCAW appeared. In further discussions, we concluded that it would not be viable for OutMotoring to sell the MINI circuit with this new competitive product on the market – Aaron would have needed to charge more than I used to sell for, and my price already is a little higher than the MCAW.
So I had a problem. I had parts to build a batch of (128) MINI circuits, but it would cost me even more to build them – and then I would be back to selling them myself. I also had no idea if all future auto-up-windows customers would buy the lower cost MCAW. But I decided to complete the build, which leads me to:
I received this batch recently, let the waiting people on my email list know, and told them also about the MCAW. I don’t know if people prefer the “original” and proven (1000+ installed) MINI circuit, or if the price difference is not too significant, but either way I have received nearly 20 orders yesterday & today.
