Just ordered the last red kit. Think it will look great on the car and no tearing coolant hoses anymore in the first decade or so.

Didn't need any bank details. They accept Paypal which is the easiest way to transfer money internationally. This was the last red kit, but maybe they have a blue or black one still in stock.

he is doin a group buy for a bunch of us in NZ too, so sounds like you just need to deal with Baker BM direct, and use a paypal account
Would rather be driving ONE 16v,than fixng TWO.

That's right. The red kit has gone, but maybe black and blue are still available. Plus the good news is that a company over here in Holland is eager to make a complete new set. I promised the guy that he can get my old set after installing the new one, so he can send them to the silicone plant to make a new kit.

Rather surprisingly, I might well be ordering a set (not worried about colour lol)...

Just bought the last set of stewart, they were blue :)
He said he's having another batch made up for Oz/Nz. So if you want a set get in touch with him He may still be able sort it. You might miss the Boat if you don't act quick though.

Thanks to those who took part in the group buy :)

Everybody who has paid up should have their hoses by now.

The outstanding 90 deg. hoses have also been sent out.

I also had the lower expansion hose (the one with the bleed) re-made as I was not 100% happy with it. I have sent these on to the people who were waiting for them.

I'm glad to say the whole batch sold and we are making another batch for an OZ/New Zealand group buy.

We plan to stock these kits in the future so if you are interested in a set please email us through contact@bakerbm.com or alternatively visit our website at www.BakerBM.com

Thanks again

Stew

I'm very happy with the quality of the kit.

The AFM hose seems to be in production too.

If the AFM hose is being produced, depending of the price i may be interested in one.

You can register your interest in the afm to throttle body pipe at the web shop.

I already have :)

Can't wait to get the hoses installed, but I'm thinking I may wait until the next time the engine is out..

Anyway, is there any chance of Bakers BM start producing a Gearchange Rods kit for the BX 16v?
