Was I disagreeing or something?  "May" means it could be "yes" or it could be "no".  It's 
turns out it's "no".  I was giving more information, perhaps more current than yours, and 
apparently more correct since by the time I ordered we already had 14 people and there 
would be no extra discount.  It didn't seem like Jeff was subsidizing the discount, so a "no" 
from Tim seems likely to be pretty good information.

People may as well know they are not getting a bigger discount right in the thread, instead of 
expecting it only to find out later when they order that they're not.

It's even worse than you describe, Tim's statement is contrary to Tim's statement.  My email 
from Jeff says: "Concerning price, Tim mentioned that if we were over 10 people it would go 
down around $100 bucks."

When I spoke to Tim, he mentioned dealing with someone in Europe (Sweden I think), who 
was the one that clarified the lack of a further discount without a much larger order.  I don't 
remember who he was referring to, Hans or Gunther or something totally different but 
equally European-sounding.  Tim is paying for shipping from Sweden, and his customers 
are paying for shipping within the U.S.

So Jeff is a customer spreading to word so he can get an RS2 turbo for himself, and Tim is a 
U.S. dealer of Dahlback stuff, and there's probably a guy at Dahlback or somewhere else 
that is arranging to buy some turbo from KKK.  Who knows if there are more middlemen.

I also agree that $1250 is a (relatively) good price, or else I wouldn't be getting one.
