The eBay one says drilling required and no hardware or template included...

Drilling is required. Drilling Template, Double Sided Tape, and Bolts are not included.

INSTALLATION:
Installation manual is not included.
Professional installation is highly recommended


and the aliexpress has no drilling and includes hardware.

Comes with 4 pcs a set. Including complete hardware.
Please examine the very pictures to make sure it fits your vehicle.


Installation.
Easy installation. Original style. No drilling needed. Just bolt onto the reserved factory holes.

I am interested, I just need a lot more info/details on the kit and your expectations from me.

Thanks.

Hi Adam,

I think the one i have like the aliexpress one.

However, according to the supplier. There are bolt included as seen in the picture below, however i think the drilling is still needed.
Tire Automotive tire Bumper Automotive exterior Auto part


Whole package weight like 5kg.

There come with below items:
1. 4 pcs small body kit set
2. screws , bolts
2. Drilling template , tape is NOT included

Installation:
1. NO manual is included


I dont think the aliexpress one mention no drilling is required in accurate. even the bolt is there , but the front bumpers of cruze doesnt have the hold for the screws i think.

You'll have to ask a lawyer about the legality of selling them in the US and Canada. Also, the moderation team has been watching this. If you want to sell more than two or three of these kits here we'll have to ask you to contact AutoGuide and get a Vendor account.

Dear obermd,

Thanks for letting know. :)

I am offering a free kit now. So I think not yet to the vendor section yet.

But surely , I would like to become a vendor when things goes big. :)

Thanks mate.

In being a manufacturer for OEM's can work one of two ways, if they pay for the tooling, have exclusive rights to buying your product, if you pay for the tooling can sell it yourself. Find many Chinese vendors on ebay selling directly that paid for their own tooling. This kit appears to be the same way. No longer buy from China, if anything goes wrong, expect you to pay for the shipping back. Even for a low end item you can buy for less than ten bucks, may find shipping it back will cost you over 30 bucks. Not only with China, but other countries as well.

Doubt if you will get better pricing from these vendors and as the shipper will be liable for settling claims due to shipping damage, and as usual will blame your packaging, even though your package was obviously driven over by a truck. To make a living at this, will have to add a markup, so how are you going to be able to compete with the vendor selling directly?

Is this a stupid question? Already tried to sell surplus electronic equipment on ebay that was ran over by a truck, took months of fighting just to get my insured value back, said screw this nonsense. And that money went back to the customer.

Packaging? We have to send boxes to our poor grandkid stuck in Venuzuela, if I was to send an empty box large enough to hole a stroller, would cost us 400 bucks! Not only weight, but volume is included. What we do ship, worth my while to find a box large enough, then to cut it down to the absolute minimum size, save a small fortune on this. UPS, Fedex, USPS, etc. all want to know the size of the box.

Also has to be packed well so the contend are not damaged, gets to be quite the challenge.

Wonder what idiots came up with deluded anti-freeze? Really have to be careful when reading labels now, but cost almost as much as the real stuff. Shipping costs are extremely expensive.

I saw on your other thread that you are bringing the kit to the US first. Would you then ship to Canada from the US. If you are shipping from the US after the Feb 2016 date, I could expect it sometime in March. Sounds right? Can you list the suggested retail price for this? I would like to estimate the duty/taxes. If the kit is no cost to me, less the install and duty/taxes. I will go for. I am in. Let me (and all of us) how this is going to proceed. Thanks.

If you can come up with an idea for a new product, get patents on it, and license it out to a major corporation, they with their attorneys will find a way to work around it. Only way you can successfully make that patent work, is to manufacturer itself.

Same holds true with marketing, find a better way, and manufacture it yourself. If another marketer can buy in larger volumes, will squeeze you out. This is exactly how chains operate, build a store in a town, operate at a loss, squeeze out the competition, when they are gone, can up the prices to anywhere they want to.

Just wonder what your plan is to succeed in this venture, have a deep down secret?

Thanks for the info. Keep us posted on the progress. We can get all of the shipping details finalized once the product is on US soils. I look forward to being your guinea pig. Cheers.
