Hey Aussies

Hey guys, I had such a great time down there in Sydney, that I wanna put a special together just for you guys. I've never been to a place where I've seen so many modded cars all the time. What is it that you guys really want and I'll put together a group buy or something together. You guys have it rough with how expensive things are there. With this group buy, I can get a pallet put together and we can drastically cut down the shipping cost to get stuff to you. Let me know what it is that you guys can't get or is to expensive normally.

All the prices are listed on the website

As far as the KW coilovers you want at least V2 which run for $1500+ USD or the best option is the V3's which only seem to be available on the site for E46 M3's and they run around $2300 USD for the V3's and $2000 USD for the V2's plus shipping I assume? Alternative is the PSS9 kit which is 2 way, no idea if this is available for non M models as I don't own one.

As far as brakes I would personally be going for AP or upgraded Brembo's, but that's for an M3 as they already run Brembo's as standard, no idea what the lesser models run.

yeh i have looked into it... and i was thinking the bilstein ones... i liked the idea of adjustability and yeh, it's available for a non M...

as for the brakes, i have been reading up on both the AP and Brembo... not too sure yet, but i am leaning towards Brembo

The KW are 3 way adjustable as opposed to the Bilstein's.

It might save a little on shipping costs but the import duties/GST adds up

I prefer individually shipped. If the value is less than US$800 we don't need to pay duties.
