    This is looking really good already, Well done N1TRO for updating the 1st post.

    Cheers lilbza, Ssuspension mods are on my radar just now, I'll definitely check out Tunershop and FCPEuro.

    Mods, can we make this a sticky?

    I used them a year ago when I bought some wheels off eBay.com - it was just over $350 from California to Sydney.
    Sarah was really helpful and made the process extremely easy.

    Great sticky idea!
    Thought it might be worthwhile to add this one - although not a seller as such, but this little search engine is fantastic when cross-checking pricing across the common US suppliers;

    http://furiousmethod.com/


    On another note, I'm considering ordering a bunch of OEM gaskets, bolts/ hardware and bearings.
    Given current exchange rates (US vs EU vs AU), Schmiedmann is looking very appealing. But I've never personally used them, and the feedback online is very mixed with some horror stories of damaged goods & month-long delays - can anyone attest for these guys?
    Currently have shopping carts loaded with Pelican (bearings & gaskets) and FCP (everything else)

    I've used Schmiedmann a number of times.
    The shipping to Sydney takes about 5 days.
    Standard sized items they're fine on, I ordered some bulky but light parts and they emailed me to double the shipping cost - obviously I cancelled the order.
    Also, make sure you know what brand you're getting as their site doesn't always specify and their unbranded parts are expensive.

    I've used Schmiedmann plenty of times and they're good. Fast if they have the part in stock, and good correspondence if their suppliers are taking a while to get a part in.

    Sometimes I've had to wait a few weeks, or even up to a couple of months for a particularly rare part but they can get almost anything if you are willing to wait.

    Their shipping calculator doesn't work properly for bulky parts as mentioned, although this has only ever happened to me once and again they were quick with their correspondence to update the cost of shipping.

    The "horror" stories are the usual types on the internet who like to whinge, and aren't willing to wait for anything (wanted it all, yesterday).

    Thanks guys, that's all the feedback I needed - I'll give them shot.

    Also, I should probably clarify, the 'horror' stories I referred to were all about concerning goods damaged in transit and the (supposedly) poor service that came after the fact..

    Couple of updates from me:

    https://rallyroad.net/ Used them for oil cooler filter adapter plus some other bits and bobs such as Vanos banjo airline adapter. Eric was very helpful via email.

    https://www.scuderia-autoart.com/ NSW based KW suspension dealer. I spent a while doing the maths and I couldn't find a cheaper way to get KW suspension in Australia. Maybe if you could find a way to guarantee not having to pay import fees it might work out less to source from abroad. But I was pleasantly surprised by their prices and at least then you've got a local contact if any issues crop up.

    I was surprised to find that this one hasn't been listed here previously;

    http://www.bimmerworld.com/

    They focus more towards BMW performance gear, but also carry some OEM and Aftermarket parts at good prices. Shipping is reasonable, especially on larger stuff.
    I've personally used them only a couple of times for smaller orders some years back, but have just placed an order for a clutch kit and some other heavy bulk parts, so will update this post once it's been received (I tend to get nervous about damage during transit when it comes to heavy stuff).

    Also, FYI; they're running a special on Clutch Master clutch kits this month of October - cheapest cost for CM kits landed into Aus by quite a stretch
