Customs will kill you :-)
If you know somebody in Europe, ask them to buy them for you and have them shipped via shipping company with "low" value on export papers.
Funny, but it is cheaper to import older car in a shipping container rather than exhaust or rims. That car can also come with rims and exhaust :-)

But you used a shipping company - DHL, try that using postal service and you will see what I mean.

As far as I remember, DP was privatized and DHL bought part of it to offer their service through DP. Anyways, if sending anything from Europe to NA, stay away from postal services. I remember importing parts for my dad's NSU (long gone) and paying a fortune.

Maybe cause it's including shipping on their price?
