Wavetrac LSD Group Buy (all models) - Closes 24/12/20

Post by Regal Autosport »

Hey Everyone!

Thank you so much for your patience, we didn't plan on joining the forum up until we realised what a great community you have here and there was a great interest in ordering some Wavetrac LSDs for your BMWs!

Incase you don't know of our company already, we've been around for 30+ years and specialise in the maintenance, repair and upgrading of European vehicles. We also physically stock and sell many of the leading brands from around the world, which is quite rare these days!

Checkout our Social Media pages below to get a better feel for us:

PLUS take a look at some of the Wavetrac differential installs on BMWs we've done recently:









We know there is a great interested in the M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i pre-built axles but being that this is a forum for all 1/2 series we thought that including the other models may be of interest too, so we've included options for this.

What's important to keep in mind is that if you want the cheapest diff, then go for the Quaife or various other diffs inspired by them in the market. If you want a diff that solves the issues of ATB/helical/gear and pinion diffs which is a loss of performance with low-no axle load, for example, wheel slip, suspension unloading (cornering, crests) or wheel lift (mostly on-track but also on country lanes) then the Wavetrac is the way to go.

It's the only way to enjoy the smoothness and low NVH of an ATB/helical/gear and pinion diff, without any of the drawbacks! Other than price, but we can solve that together with this group buy!

Retails:

M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i Wavetrac LSD Built Axle £1999
Each exchange axle comes complete with the following:
  • Wavetrac ATB LSD
    ARP Ring Gear Bolts
    New, Genuine BMW Axle Seals
    Backlash Setup to OE Tolerances
    Precisely Machined Ring Gear
Additional items:
  • In-house installation is £285
    Motul 75w140 Competition Oil £24
    Surcharge £480 (refunded on receipt of your original usable differential, costs to make differential usable will be deducted from this surcharge e.g. bearings, cover) - If you want to use your original axle, we can do this too.
FULL list of axles we stock can be found here: https://www.regalautosport.com/shop/ind ... ilt%20axle

Other BMWs:

For BMWs we do not stock pre-built Wavetrac equipped axles, we can also offer you the Wavetrac upgrade at a price of £1999 plus installation (dependent on vehicle & condition) + Motul Competition Oil.

The Special Offer:
As this vehicle extended to all BMWs, fingers crossed we can get a sizeable group together so we can get the deepest discount from Wavetrac.
  • M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i Wavetrac LSD Built Axle MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 2-5 -7.5% off the MSRP = a discount of £149.93, costing £1849.08
    M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i Wavetrac LSD Built Axle MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 6-9 -10% off the MSRP = a discount of £199.90, costing £1799.10
    M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i Wavetrac LSD Built Axle MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 10+ -15% off the MSRP = a discount of £299.85, costing £1699.15
We can also offer a saving on the installation too for forum members, dropping this from £285 to £190 PLUS a FREE 1l of Motul Competition 75w140, which together is a saving of £99.

The total saving can be OVER £400, saving you as much as £428.85!

Other BMW owners who have cars with welded azles that we don't stock exchange axles for, we can also offer the same!
  • Other BMWs with Welded axles that we don't stock exchange axles for: MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 2-5 - 7.5% off the MSRP = a discount of £149.93, costing £1849.08
    Other BMWs with Welded axles that we don't stock exchange axles MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 6-9 - 10% off the MSRP = a discount of £199.90, costing £1799.10
    Other BMWs with Welded axles that we don't stock exchange axles MSRP £1999, Group Buy Price for 10 - 15% off the MSRP = a discount of £299.85, costing £1699.15
We can also offer a saving on the installation too for forum members, reducing the cost of installation by PLUS a FREE 1l of Motul Competition 75w140, which together is a saving of £99.

Whatsmore is we’ll also go one step further and add the totals of BOTH
Non-M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i & M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i buyers together, making it easier to hit the maximum saving of £398.85!


So you could have x5 Non-M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i + M135i/M235i/M140i/M240i owners to hit the 10 required!

Wavetrac are notorious for not offering a discount on their differentials due to high manufacturing costs and the added features, so this is a great way to grab the best ATB/helical/gear and pinion LSD on the market, at a great price.

If you’d like to commit, then you can follow the below link whereby you’ll need to provide your information and vehicle information as well as your intent to provide a £50 non-refundable deposit to take advantage of the deal.

GROUP BUY FORM LINK - https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... g/viewform

Two lists will be made, one list of ‘tentative’ and one list of ‘committed’. Those who are ‘tentative’ would be interested but have not placed a non-refundable deposit and those ‘committed’ will have placed the non-refundable deposit, ready to enjoy as much as £428.85 discount should the numbers be met!

This group buy offer will close at 00:00 25/12/20, by this date all of those who wish to take advantage of the deal should have placed a deposit and users have until 00:00 04/01/21 to pay the final cost (dictated by numbers who have placed deposits). Any deposits and payments received after the closing date will be refunded.

As the base number of 2 is set for a 7.5% discount, you could stand to save at a minimum £248.83!

Let's get started!

Definitely happy to be put on the tentative list at the moment, split between an MP diff or a Wavetrac currently.

Do you have more than one garage? Where would we be able to get the diff fitted? Are the charges you've listed the cost for the diff alone to order, and then the fitting separate? Are they independent of one another or is the diff saving available to order?

Thanks

Glad to have Regal onboard. Count me in for this. I have registered my interest for both the MP and Wavetrac, as not sure on which will hit their target number wise.

Added to the list! Thank you :-D

''Do you have more than one garage? '' - We are located in Southampton, SO17 3AN. (I'll add our location to the post).
''Where would we be able to get the diff fitted?'' - If you opt for installation with us, you would need to come to our Southampton location. The axle is a 1:1 replacement, so any garage who can replace them can do this!
''Are the charges you've listed the cost for the diff alone to order, and then the fitting separate?'' - The charges for the cost of the diff and fitting are separate
''Are they independent of one another or is the diff saving available to order?'' - The diff saving can be enjoyed if we ship the diff to you or if you opt for in-house installation. If you opt for in-house installation, you can enjoy a £99 saving which is free oil and a reduction in labour.

If you're interested in learning the differences between the M Performance and the Wavetrac, let me know and I can explain. We have had a few customers switch from the M Performance and love it!

I hope this answers your questions, let me know if not!

Cheers, Ash

Added! Thanks for your interest :D

With yourself and Kettle, you can enjoy 7.5% discount! Just need 3 more to bump this up to 10%, then 8 more to enjoy 15%!

Think we need to get this advertised a bit more for visibility, not sure how many people are aware of this offer.

Maybe Facebook and Instagram.

So tempted on the Wavetrac.

How long would you need my 135i for if I opted for in-house fitting? I live on the Isle of Wight so would need to be fairly sure of timings and don't want to be without the car too long.

MAJOR UPDATE:

I realised tonight that I had the price down incorrectly, it was up for £2199 when it should have been £1999. Long Friday, clearly.

The prices have been updated to reflect the retail which is £1999 and all of the discounts recalculated from this. Essentially, the price is £200 less at the retail before discounts.

Please DM me with your registration and transmission type and I will let you know. For pre-built axles, it's a few hours. For axles that we don't stock, it's overnight e.g. arrive at 8AM and you could drive your car away the following afternoon.

Thanks for the responses mate. Maybe I haven't paid enough attention so apologies for the dumb questions in advance if so, but is there a saving on having your own open diff/housing used for the mod rather than the pre fitted option, or do you take our old diff and discount that from the price of the new Wavetrac?

The figures that have been quoted are they the pre fit option? With exchanging your old diff or do you get to keep it?

Thanks again

Do it Major_Sarcasm, it is a big wedge, but it’s worth it if you’re keeping the car. I would think that the lead/shop time is in fact longer than a few hours unless they’ve brought the machining in house since the beginning of the year when I was there, or they offer pre-built E-Series pumpkins.

This is my car, excuse the skinny mismatched wheels. Good service and a good shop.

Feel free to add me to the tentative list, for me to hit the go button I'd really like to see the price hit the 6+ threshold as I'm planning some other mods too at the moment.

Much as I loved the Quaife I ran on my Impreza, on a rwd car I can really see the benefit of the Wavetrac over both the Quaife and plated MP unit. I am properly getting bored with my wobbly back end in this weather!

Honestly mate, I am very tempted. But, the timing is bad and payment is expected on the 4th of Jan, so a very tight schedule at Xmas time, so I might have to pass. Will see how finances are. The problem is I could do with getting Xmas out the way before committing!
