    Hi Guys
    After the success of the last bulk buy and being a new owner I thought it would be good to resurrect this as there seems to be lots of interest about having a quaife fitted.

    I have spoken with Birds (James Bird) and this is what they have offered.


    If you can generate 5 or more customers I would be happy to make an offer of £893 for parts only (including shipping U.K. Outside of U.K will have additional shipping charges) and installed for £1302. Prices are inclusive of VAT

    On the last deal there was a fitting deal done with PCS, MSL and Eurocharged of London for £450 inc I would suggest if you don't want to use Birds for the installation you contact these direct to get the installation done and to see if they will do the same price as before. ( I'm using Birds for mine )

    The offer is open from now till the end of January.

    To sign up:

    1) Contact Birds with your full details, including forum member name and whether you would like parts only or installed, through our website here Quaife Merc. Limited Slip Diff. Kit | Birds.

    2) James will reply with the quote and a request for a 30% deposit.

    3) Once 5 deposits are received I will complete the orders and begin shipping/booking customers in. Those looking to book in should note we are fully booked until February. If we do not receive the 5 deposits by the end of January, I will email the customers to see if they would like a refund or arrange an alternative solution.

    Here's a link to our news page which has a few images and a link to an editorial by Mercedes Enthusiast who came in last January Mercedes C63 AMG QUAIFE limited slip differential | Birds

    I dont think you have to worry there, being the sole distributor for Quaife for BMW and Mercedes I think speaks for itself

    A friend of mine had a Quaife from Birds installed in his 335i in Manchester I'll ask him who he used.

    I,m gonna have a re-think. Firstly may car is only 2 years old and under warranty, so I do not want to compromise that. Secondly, I have only had the car a few months and its done nowt but rain since I bought it. Many high powered cars struggle in the wet anyway, so, I am gonna wait until Spring, have a play on some dry roads, and see if it is something I really need ? My guessing is, the TC will work perfect on the road. Thirdly, I wont be doing track days in her.
