When I contacted them before, their price list said:
"ALL CUSTOMERS WILL RECEIVE A 30% DISCOUNT ON THE MADE-TO-ORDER RANGE WHEN ORDERING 5 OR MORE OF THE SAME ITEM"
Of course, PPG make a considerable list of "made-to-order" GTiR parts, including:
Nissan GTIR Final Drive - 4.066 Ratio
Nissan GTIR Final Drive - 4.143 Ratio
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd S/C Dog 1-4 Gear Set 2.833 / 1.687 / 1.200 / 0.955
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd S/C Dog - 5th Gear Set 0.769
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd S/C Synchro 1-4 Gear Set 2.833 / 1.687 / 1.200 / 0.955
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd S/C Synchro - 5th Gear Set 0.769
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd 3/4 Billet Selector Fork
Nissan GTiR Pulsar 5spd 5th Billet Selector Fork
so I suppose 30% discount would be possible without any favours on these parts if everyone wanted the same set, i.e. the 5-speed Synchro set. Ask if your mate can do 20% discount on top of the 30%-off price!
The real problem (for us UK folk) is the poor AUD-GBP exchange rate. A few years ago this would have been reasonable, but now it's an expensive prospect!
