I know a few people that have dealt with them....

Never heard anything thats bad. Your looking at the 33 GTR i assume?

BTW is that pricey for you i mean your exchange rate is like $1au buys like 1/3 of your £'s

Going over there is a rediculously pricey trip!

Yep just ordered set of Original Top Secret Skirts off of Gary. If i can't get this CF Z-Tune bonnet from Aus then i'll get the one he's doing in fibreglass.

And yes, Gary is a top top guy...really helpful and spends time getting what you want. Lovely guy.

They should do!

I used to work for www.vivagarage.com (website has not been updated for ages!)

We had quite a few orders from the UK, so they should also... Just email Unique and take it from there.

I might drop into the guys at Viva and see if they have anything like your looking for.

to add i found that unique auto's shipping was more than reasonable unless it was for smaller light weight goods when some times the shipping did exceed the cost of the parts

i would expect by sea freight it to cost no more than £150 - £190 ish absolute max...maybe less.

Ask them to quote and if they are not brilliant try using bax global and they can do the pick up etc from them...may work out cheaper that way

you can ask them to mark the price down for you so you dont pay as much, just remember that it wont be insured for as much also.

Customs and charges are duty and vat and work on the rough figure of 30% on top and your about right
