I get the costs, what I don't get is why things come quicker and easier from overseas half the time anyway.

Zaino is good, but not $295 good IMHO.
Because Australia Post is shit...

most of the stuff I get from OS, australia post do the last leg????

But I like the justification of the higher price is freight, fuck me if i can AIR freight a single box for less you chaps are doing something really wrong!!!

Anyone see the ACA piece on IKEA last night, charging double (between here and the states) for a chair from Indo, gave me a smile ;-)

Most of the stuff I get from OS is usually fedex/UPS/DHL/TNT so I assume Aus Post don't get involved for its last leg as they will use their local branch?

I usually find USPS is cheaper and I can't think of one that AP didn't do the last leg. I bought some black chrome tips the other day and the box has Int'l AP on it, as with Ar DP's, ETS FMIC etc

Ah fair enough - I usually use USPS when the shipping cost is a lot cheaper. USPS takes ages Though with my current order (FMIC, CP, BOV) is going through USPS hopefully I will get it before Christmas!

I still can't understand why goods from overseas arrive faster then goods from Sydney!

Especially since AP do the last leg anyway

I wasn't all that sure at first as my car smelt like Mr Minit. But it does leave a nice matte, protected sheen and over time doesn't end up looking like you've gone feral with Armorall. Cleaner is great BTW.

And now all my clothes and my family smell like Mr Minit, I'm used to it.

there may have been a thread about meth but mostly me asking question. Always interested in it but I know if I ever go down that path I would want to be very well informed.

Wouldn't want to start playing with meth without knowing a little about it...

Careful asking too many questions there are people out there that don't like too many questions!

Too late for that I'm afraid, it's a well established fact you are the leader and coercer of modding/upgrades.

Mind you I might just see if there is a BF deal on the BMS trunk kit and just put it aside for a rainy day

You would probably want to borrow Z9 (Leather Shampoo) and Z10 (Leather Conditioner)

On a side note I am going to try duragloss next, it comes from the same factory as Zaino but half the price! they say is about 95% as good as Zaino.

Dear Zaino I love the clay bar! Clay Bar FTW!!!!!!!

Now some of you chaps are probably all over the clap bar but I'd never heard of it before getting the Zaino Z2 (I think) kit and for half price it's a winnnnner.

Anyway clay bar for the virgins out there is like a medium polish but without the effort. On the 335 I get quite a bit of exhaust particles on the rear deck and is pisses me off, well with clay bar a little detergent and a gentle rub and hey presto all smooth again ready for a light polish and I'd say better than new.

All hail clay bar!!

you should use a proper clay lube as opposed to 'detergent'...

I use a relatively inexpensive mothers one currently, previously used a dodo juice one called "born slippy", available online from www.carcareproducts.com.au
