Bespoke A2 Footrest Group Order 2

Morning all,

For those of you that missed out on obtaining one of these stunning items to liven up you footwell, now have the chance to show your interest in purchasing one.

Here is where Group Order 1 came from.

Initially I lost out to an eBay purchase last year which looked like this:
4C4398AA-2242-4B0F-966E-B32374ED7BEE.png

As nice as this item looks I would have preferred to have the 2 changed to not be in Italic type text. So the idea started to get some made.

I contacted a few companies that deal with precision cutting sheet metal and got a very good response from Cutting Technologies so armed them with my idea which didn't show my drawing ability at its best:

Cutting Technologies required something a bit more detailed so I contacted Paul @depronman who produced the CAD file to be used in their machines for the actual cutting of the Marine Grade 3mm Brushed Stainless Steel. Here it is in an early version in a cardboard cutout:

After some discussion here on the forum we collectively decided that it needed to be a little larger and the 'A' of the 'A2' needed to have the little left flick at the top of the 'A'. Paul quickly worked his magic and produced this:
Audi A2 RHD Foot Rest T2 X L312 X W61 Ally V4.jpg

To take the footrests to the next level Paul also made 3D Printed Infills for the Audi TT Style gaps:

The above quick story is the short version of how this venture came about. If I remember correctly, from the initial post to having these fitted in members A2s was just 1 month. Utterly amazing. Im sure it may not be that quick this time round as we need to get to 93 footrests spoken for to purchase them at the brilliant price of £3.91 delivered to me in Coalville. The price delivered to you with 3M UHB Tape and 3D Printed Infills comes out at £13.46.

The pricing to take the bare item from £3.91 to £13.46 can be seen below but I must say that this isn't a venture for profit, I make no gain from this at all, it actually takes me some time to package everything up and wait in the queue in the local Hermes shop to send them. I am rewarded with a the grin on my face when you add a picture of your footwell sporting its new Bespoke Footrest. My time here is free as I like to help out where I can.

Pricing:
£3.91 for 1 footrest
£2.90 postage for up to 4 footrests, the price increases to £4.20 for 5 or more footrests in a single parcel
£1.75 for 2x 30cm strips of genuine 3M UHB double sided foam tape to adhere your footrest
£0.90 packaging, which includes a padded jiffy bag, printed label and enough tape to ensure its secure
£4.00 for 12x 3D Printed infills which I will receive from Paul prior to dispatching you parcel.

If you wanted to save some money you can always avoid the postage and packaging by collecting from me in Coalville. I’m just 5 minutes off the M1 from either J23 or J22. You can also save money by not opting for the 3M Tape and/or the 3D printed infills. So if you was able to collect and just wanted the bare footrest the cost would only be £3.91. I must say that the Infills are very complimentary though and look fantastic.

For those of you who don't know what the final product looks like, here you go.
They are delivered with a protective film on them and is easily and quickly removed:

Once said protective film is removed you can see the beauty and detail of the item:

Fitted with the 3M Tape and Pauls Infills looks like this:

Im sure you agree that these look superb fitted and really update and liven up the A2s footwell. Very OEM looking with Audi TT Pedal Covers.

In Post #2 you'll see the list which I will add your name to once you show interest. To show interest, simply reply to this thread with the following details.

Please ensure you add what options you'd like, mainly do you want 3M Tape, 3D Printed Infills and delivery of collection. You choose whatever works for you:

@2work 1 footrest with 3M Tape and Infills delivered to mainland UK

@2work 1 footrest without 3M Tape without Infills delivered to mainland UK

@2work 1 footrest with 3M Tape with Infills collected

@2work 1 footrest without 3M Tape without Infills collected

Im sure you get the idea.

Please do ask away if you have any questions and also feel free to add you interest. The sooner we get to the minimum order of 93 I will ask for payment and submit the order.

Kind regards,

Tom

Hopefully you have liked what you see above (and below) and would like to register your interest.

Prior to me starting this thread I already had 8 members asking about a footrest so have added them to the new list which is below. I will stick to just 1 list this time round and it will remain here in Post #2. Ill update is as ofter as is required.

Heres the list as of 11:30 Saturday 1 May 2021:

List removed as no longer serves a purpose.

Key
:
Red highlighted rows indicated no payment received and interest removed.
Green highlighted rows indicated package dispatched and tracking number provided (on picture within PM).

Please do not send me any funds until I ask and please do not add your postage details to this thread, this will all be conducted away from the public over PM.

To keep things tidier this time round I will take the money for the Infills and send it to Paul with how many infill sets are required to fulfil the order. Its easier and saves any confusion that I may have caused on Group Order 1. Paul will simply bulk send them to me (no extra postage costs) and Ill add the Infills to your package.

Hope that all makes sense. Get registering your interest.

Kind regards,

Tom

Wheres the best place to get the sport pedals as in the pic please
Afternoon,

When you say ‘best place’ do you mean the cheapest or the factory item.

@A2Steve should have a link for the cheapest available from Aliexpress which take a few weeks to arrive but look good from his post on the original thread.

There is a few genuine sets available in the usual auction website but they look well used. Here (£29.99 + £8.50delivery) is a brand new set which states it’s the last one so get in there quick. There is also limited stock here (£40 + £8.50 delivery).

An occasional search of ‘Genuine Audi TT Pedal Covers’ will usually give you what you want eventually. They also fit other models so you could broaden your search. Not certain but think the Golf (not sure which Mk) and A3 8L also fit.

EDIT: @Scudney, I’ve just seen these on Amazon, they are Prime next day delivered for £9.99. I very much doubt that they are genuine Audi items but certainly look good in the pictures. There are currently 6 sets left in stock and might be worth a go at the price with next day delivery.

I’ve personally always gone for genuine TT pedal covers.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Tom

Please ignore the last 3 columns as they only come into play nearer the time of ordering. Once were ready to submit the order I will send you all a PM requesting payment and your delivery details. Please do not send me any funds until I ask and please do not add your postage details to this thread, this will all be conducted away from the public over PM.

@The Kitchpoos @Darpod14 @mcauleyj @TheWelshWonder @alanb @ROBBO1957 @Tlehall @Scudney can you confirm that you still wish to be on the list.

Kind regards,

Tom

Morning all,

I see that we’re already a tenth of the way there for this next order. I have just sent Cut-Tec an email asking if there is any possibility of reducing the minimum order total (93) whilst maintaining the cost of £3.91 (inc VAT). I’ll see what they say but for now let’s keep trying to get to that monumental figure of 93 spoken for footrests.

Hope everyone is safe and well.

Kind regards,

Tom

Morning all,

I hope you’re reading this in good health and not pulling your hair out like me home schooling again.

Cut-Tec have replied regards my question about reducing the minimum order total from 93 whilst maintaining the cost per footrest of £3.91 each.

Unfortunately they answer was along the lines of they cannot reduce the minimum order quantity, it was worth a try though.

Here is the initial quote for all 93 footrests delivers to me in Leicestershire:

67986D7A-A4E4-4598-8F3E-699C107E8A0D.jpeg

I have also been informed that the cost of materials have increased slightly but I’ve not been armed with this new increased price yet as they have honoured the same price as before for now.

The above quote is only valid for a certain amount of time, once this has passed I guess we’ll see how much the increased price is. I doubt it’ll be much but as I am frugal I’d like to purchase them as cheap as possible.

Keep registering your interest.

Kind regards,

Tom

Anyone else thinking of fitting one of these,

Please do register your interest by simply responding to the thread with what what options you would like.

The turn round for these brilliant footrests is just a few days from submitting the order to delivery to me here in Leicestershire.

There is an option for a a smaller order total but the price would obviously increase slightly.

I might add 10 to the list myself to help out with getting to the minimum order figure. These would just be stock for future sales but they still leaves some 70 items that need to be spoken for.

Kind regards,

Tom
