Lol I get those too but I work out what parts will likely cost me landed in the UK. For example, I bought Blitz front and rear strut braces and a fair few other parts for my GT86 from Japan and still paid less than what I'd pay for just the strut braces alone from a UK supplier! Sometimes things are more expensive, sometimes not.

Oh, top tip.. Dont use EMS as Parcelfarce then get involved, your parcel will sit in customs for weeks and then they'll eventually send you a letter demanding you pay their fees (for "handling your parcel") before they'll even think about releasing it to you. Invariably it'll be damaged, delivered to the wrong address or "left in your safe place" (by the front door, in the rain) and you'll pay between £12 and £24 for the privilege!
