Brokerage/duty charges on m50 manifold shipped to Ontario from KO performance?

Hi guys. I'm thinking about getting the eurosport manifold shipped from KO performance, esp cause its very cheap right now. Total shipped would be around 400 CAD but I've heard horror stories about brokerage charges because they use UPS-has anyone had any experience with this? How much did it cost? Thanks.

honestly if your worried about it, email John-Paul and ask him to send it via USPS. but i cant see the brokerage on 400 being huge, probably like $60, just a guess.

Don't forget the 5% GST and 8% PST on $400 = $52.00 (ALways charged.)


Occasionally they maybe nasty and charge 6.1% duty too. (not very often though)

FYI Bro... that is not the "Eurosport" kit. The kit alone is $350 with no manifold. KO doesn't even carry Eurosport products... Try Understeer.com if you want the Eurosport kit specifically.

Estimate 20% of taxes/duties on declared value, and add $30-$40 for brokerage fees.

hmmm, if its not the eurosport kit, I may as well get Erics then? Apparently because its USPS, people don't generally get charged duty

This website is useful to estimate your total cost: www.thefinalcost.com

You need to add GST because the website doesn't do it.

They are supposed to though, on any non-US auto parts.
