US$1273 for the diffuser (maybe cheaper for more), and shipping will depend on how many I spose. All up about $1500? I know it's not the cheapest item but it looks hot!

Yeah.. i mean if you used the original as a mould, and had 5 guys get it done, it would not cost $1500.

Hard work of making the mould is already done

Hey guys :smile: Let me ask you something. Are you guys close together? Because it would be cheaper for you on shipping if I could ship all to one person or location, write everyone's name on the product they ordered, and then you guys could go nuts :biggrin:

Hi all,

The problem you have is that anything over 1000 Australian dollars including freight is subject to Customs duty, GST, brokers fees etc. I estimate, without knowing box sizes etc, i expect landed they will cost you guys approx $1900-2000 working on a cost price of 1273usd.

Dan, the problem of sending to the one address is that the address it goes to would have to pay customs and fees on the whole amount.

Now with out stepping on toes, yes i do understand you guys already have a relationship with Dan....

I have a great relationship with BMW here, naturally. I can supply Rear diffuser (for sport only models) hey i thought they were all sport models in Australia but apparantly not.

BMW Australia have agreed to reduce the cost if i can organise a few sales, 5 or so, and of course you have full BMW warranty and a confirmed quote. I can supply in your hands for $1995 which is a huge reduction on price i have negotiated this morning.

Please, i don't wish to step on toes with Dan, he offers a magnificant service to this forum and should be rewarded, i just thought it prudent to make an offer.

Let me know if i can help

Andrew

Well, then if it is form and function, might be worth spending the extra dollars

Thanks Andrew. I am once again unsure if I should be spending this kind of money on what is cosmetic only in nature. I will let you know if I am interested!
