Question GROUP PURCHASE: Body Kits!

I found a great place that sells body kits for all 3 series bmw's but the problem is that it's in south africa. The good thing is, an entire body kit only costs us $340 canadian because the african rand is worth so little compared to our might dollar (lol).

If anyone is interested, i'm going to be ordering from them, but i will be shipping them by freightliner (boat), and those crates are HUGE. I think we can get a better deal if we fill one of those suckers up.

Check out these links here:

http://www.autostyle.co.za/bmwgallery.htm

This is supposed to be the largest distributer for auto accessories in south africa, and there were a few people who bought from them off of the roadfly forum.
I want to get their m3 sideskirts, e46m3 bumper, LTW spoiler, and m3 rear bumper.

if you're unsure as to how much these items cost visit

Universal Currency Converter

I've already been in contact with the shop, and they're okay with sending overseas as long as we deal directly with the freight company.

tell me what you think

Yeah i'll find out if it's plastic
most of the stuff off of there is high quality fiberglass
the e46m3 bumper for an e36 is supposed to be made from the same material as stock bumpers are made from. So that could mean other items are like that too. I'll check for you.
They sent me pictures of the fiberglass kits up close, and they're petty heavy duty, they're not thin flimsy kits at all.

And yes freight i believe is cheaper than air, but it takes longer to arrive.
