    I 100% agree with this for two reasons.

    1. Exchange rate is better than great at the moment.

    2. All 205s are getting to an age where the diffs will be beginning to become suspect.

    I've ordered one and as previously mentioned, the price you can get one now for is great.

    What about a Drexler though? I might ring up Monday and enquire about pricing.

    I ordered a 505 LSD last Wednesday, directly from Quaife in the UK. It arrived at 9am this morning. And at just a few dollars over 1,000AUD that's not at all bad.

    Let us know about the difference it makes in the 505 when it's installed Con. What other mods have you made to the car?

    I thought they were no longer available. What % LSD is it? Can you post specifics? (part number, U.K. cost etc...)

    Hi Thanos, you can look them up on the Quaife site, still listed with a price of 580 pounds.

    Cheers

    Peter, how did you go?
    This is all looking complicated for the Quaife buy, Drexler for the FWD cars, others needing to go Quaife for their 505/504 and stock issues for these maybe.

    I am also interested in a 505 diff if a group buy forms.

    Thanks, Jim, I had checked a few years ago and they were NLA. Evidently they made a new batch and at a lower price to boot.

    I have recived a reply from Quaife UK.
    They have sufficient 505 units in stock in stock and will send to Palmside in NZ, the dealer for Australasia if the order is placed with Palmside.
    Up to you now JR

    I have been in daily contact with Palmside. My last post to them last week was to ask them did they have enough 505's in stock and they replied if i got the order in by this Thursday they would get the lot sent from UK as he doesnt want to get stuck with items that havent been purchased.
    I have told them that this Thursday is too soon [ the Drexler post stalled a few peeps me thinks ]
    I didnt think this would takes as long as it has ...as of tomorrow i start full day school again and now wont have the time to spend on this group buy unfortunately.

    Anybody else want to take the reins ?
    What also surprised me was the lack of interest from the 205 crowd or are they all skint maintaining their little go carts !!!

    Nisspug,

    It will be a couple of months before I get around to installing it. It will be going into a 505 SRDT and the only other mod will be to raise the car by about 25mm so that I can negotiate off-road conditions such as sandy beaches and the forthcoming trip to Cape York with PCCV.
