Newbie says Hi

Hi Folks,
First post here. Just wondering if anyone has bought anything from vendors in the US (bimmerpost forum) and if anyone can recommend a trustworthy seller over there. What's the normal shipping charge to be expected and how long does it take for the goods to arrive?

Looking for some tyres: Goodyear F1 asymmetrics (which is not available in Aust).

Thanks in advance

Welcome aboard. Many of us here have purchased from the US. Personally I've used jlevisw.com and found them to be very good. I imported wheels which would be a little lighter than tyres and transport cost was around $250 door to door. Took four days to Aust and another couple of days to clear customs. One of the guys in Brisbane bought a wheel and tyre package so he might chime in here on cost.

Yayyy, another noob lol, welcome

I have dealt with JleviSW, and Khoalty is great too (got my recent batch of stuff from him...) But a while ago **********s had some credit card security problems, so I have not been game to try with them... BavAuto isn't bad either....

BUT STAY AWAY FROM AUTOTALENT (if you want the story, pm me)

Here's a link to a US parts supplier that may be of interest to others (if not already known).

Story:
I bought an oil filter for my 'E93 to do an intermediate oil/filter change from the $tealer who graciously charged me $48 for the part.
I sourced an alternate supplier from the states (see attached link) - check the price variation ie: $11.90 US for the exact identicle part!
I proceded to buy 10 for the future and happy to pay a single $28.00 US shipping fee to get them out here.

Check the site - there appears to be lots of other bimmer service bits that should be worthwhile looking into.
