Will, you bastard ha ha very nice!! They'll go well with the Vorsteiner gear. How much was shipping? I'm thinking about getting a set from overseas too and the dollar is slowly creeping up

Also, what offset did you get?

Ok, i declared the value at $500 usd, which equivalent to $700 usd so i didnt pay any gst what so ever. here is the breakdown
IMPORT TERMINAL FEE AUD 65
IMPORT DOCUMENTATION FEE AUD 25
CTO FEE AUD 30
AIR CARGO AUTOMATION FEE AUD 15
CMR COMPLIANCE FEE AUD 15
AGENCY AND ATTENDANCE AUD 95
Plus GST service, AUD 25

That's pretty much it :O

Very nice! I look forward to seeing them on the car. Post some pics. BTW, which tyres did you decide to use? Your old RFTs or some real tyres? (I did the similar to you but got them sent with tyres fitted- non runflats- when the exchange rate was closer to 0.90c to the dollar!)

Aren't all those fees a load of crap!! $650 in shipping sounds high, but I suppose it's a long haul. I'm still tossing up ideas, I'd love some LM's but they are so expensive i couldn't pull the trigger. Maybe some like yours in plain silver or Advan RS or NEEZ euro's or CSL reps. That offset should be perfect, but make sure I think you will find you need tires with a rounded sidewall so they tuck in nicely, especially when you drop it.

thanks for that mate. given the shipping fee was around $650USD, does it mean you've paid close to $1k including the clearance fee?

crap, i better think twice before importing wheels from the US.
