    Default Vogtland Down Under!

    For those 'Down Under' looking for Vogtland springs, this is the reply I received from Vogtland in Germany (translated from German using Google)

    Hello to Australia,
    unfortunately we do not have a partner in Australia. In new Zealand however it is the company Suspension progress in Pakuranga, Auckland Tel. 0064 21378902 ability you us a partner in Australia recommends, we looks for a representative, who sells and drives our feathers/springs out. Thank you for your assistance. Yours sincerely,
    Best regards Christian Klose sales manager


    So it maybe worth getting a quote from N.Z.?

    Default I can get a cousin to send them from Germany. It'll be cheaper.

    Sounds like Vogtland would like you to be their representative in AUS. Assuming that you'll drive their feathers out.

    Well I'll need a set of their feathers... I mean springs... to demo to all their potential Vogtland customers in Oz... won't I?

    Sounds like a good scam in the making there! You don't know anyone making the trip to Aus do you? We could do with couriers and would do airport pickups in Bavarian Limousines of course. Or we could perhaps post one big box slow freight... We're looking at at least 3 sets by the looks of it, if you should feel inclined a price from those guys would sure fire us up... We're after the spring with model number #951026. Thanks Moit! GP
