Carbon Cleaning Group Buy - Interested??

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I just got off the phone with Galen at GTPeace and they would like to set up a group buy for engine carbon cleaning for those that are interested.  They are targeting late summer.  The normal price for carbon cleaning is $399...but with the group buy, they will knock off $100 per customer.  So you would get a full carbon cleaning for $299.  N14s and N18s welcome of course (I'm assuming the TwinPower Turbos don't need them just yet).  They need at least 15 MINIs in order host the event. "Maybes" won't help in this case.  Please let me know below if you are interested and I can work with Galen to get it set up. 

Once we have the number needed for the group buy, I will let Galen know.  They will then set up your appointment at a time convenient for you in late summer.  These cleanings will likely be done over a span of a couple of weeks to a month (i.e. a couple of MINIs a week, etc.).  Just depends on when you are available to bring your MINI/Mini in. The only thing they ask is that you prepay so that they know you are interested.

Full disclosure:  I'm not affiliated with GTPeace in any way.  I'm just a loyal customer who wants a carbon cleaning. 

Edit:  I should note that they will do just about any vehicle...not just MINIs. 

Interested:

Have reached minimum!! That said, more are welcome to join in.  Remember, I'll reiterate, we need 15 people that will absolutely do this.  I do not want to waste Galen's time.

Edit: 6/11/2018
Hi All,

I need each one of you who have expressed interest to private message me your name, phone number and email, and year/make/model of car (I'm assuming 90-100% will be MINIs).  This way I can give this information to GTPeace and they will begin to schedule.  If you already have, thank you.

Secondly, GTPeace is willing to pick a Saturday coming up to make an event out of this. They will provide food, etc.  They will be able to schedule 8 cars that day and the remainder of us will be scheduled at times convenient to us (i.e. during the week).  Which date works better?  June 30th?  Or July 14th?  Please respond below.  We will pick a day.  I will submit that to Galen and we will get 8 cars signed up and create the event.

Thanks,
Shadow

Also, Devin, if you are the events guy on the board these days, let me know if you need more info.

How long does this take per person? Since we are referring to this as an "event" are we thinking they are going to do 15 cars in a day or will they work to schedule individuals over a period of time?

Is this something I should consider with 23k miles on a Gen 3?

I'm not sure it's a 3rd gen thing. Is mostly for 2nd gens, 1st don't have the problem as bad

I would be interested, not a bad idea to have done. Just passed 40k and my driving style may promote blow-by. I plan on installing a catch can afterwards to help prevent future buildup

Ali got you covered and posted the event on Facebook. I'll give it a few days and if we still don't have the minimum, we can send out an email blast to try to reach a few others. We just sent one out last night otherwise we could do it now.
