    Anyone ever order from the UK?

    They dont ship to the US but I have an Uncle I can ask to ship me some parts I found pretty cheap.

    I found some kw variant 3 coilovers for 1541 after conversion on a euro site.
    I don't believe it should be expensive to ship to the US since rims cost less than 2-300. Even if it costed 1800 to ship over here, its still about a 200$ savings.

    I would probably pair them with Vorschlag camberplates and coilover perches for another $380ish.

    Do you think I can trust buying from those euro sites commonly found in BMW Performance magazine?

    You have to wonder why the same product is so much cheaper there...

    I ordered bulbs and some small things from the UK before, but you have to be careful. You have less power to fight back in case you were ripped off. PLUS, you might be charged by customs. IMO, not worth it.

    Does anyone know how much it costs from UK to US?
    Also is there a company like UPS or something where I can ship to, and then have them ship me my package?
    (I've asked my Dad about my Uncle, and it's just not cool to do something like this for just my car. I agreed.)

    You will also pay import tax. In the end there is little savings.
