+1 bought a few bits of the Taiwan sellers, good quality items as well. Factor in import fees, although you don't also get these charged.

Bought a M3 lip spoiler painted from a Taiwan seller (49 inc del!!) and i thought what the hell, it's worth a punt for 49 compared to BMW's lolworthy price.

It arrived, and to say i was pleasantly surprised is an understatement. The paint match was perfect, the item was extremely good quality and i literally couldn't have asked for anything more. However, i would say, for anything that requires a bit more of an accurate fitment like a front Aero bumper lip, i would always go genuine BMW.

RE: import fee's. Fedex delivered mine. Then sent a letter asking for the import fee. The import fee was like 1.20 (which i would have happily paid), however Fedex wanted to add on their 10 admin fee for this, which annoyed me, so i just ignored the letters. Got a few saying they were going to sue me and stuff, but they got bored in the end.

Avoid this seller

I had a very disappointing experience with them.

I got a m3 lip spoiler from BC_moto on ebay - 45 delivered and no import duties... colour match was perfect, and was delivered withing 6 days of order!!!

There is a value that if the seller declares the contents as being more than, then you get charged. I think its 40 or equivalent (please don't read that as gospel!)

Most will, if you ask them nicely... declare the items as having a value below the threshold and thus avoid customs charges...
