A spokes person? I think this thread speaks for itself.

Bought an HKS header today for $200. Will see if the company fulfills the order, or realizes that their list price is around $2100 too low and refunds me.

Once you know its shipped share for everyone else lol. Not sure on CAD but you can find the HKS for under $1000 USD from time to time brand new. Dont know if people just dont follow MAP or what

A $1,000 part in US funds can easily be double or even two and a half times that price by the time it gets here. Although if the exchange rate keeps improving we will soon be at par for at least the cost.

By the time taxes, duty, exchange rate, shipping and brokerage fees were done I paid $224 for a $71 diffuser.

I recently decided I wanted to replace 5 lugnuts, so I asked TireRack for a quote (since they came with the wheels I bought from them)

This is what they sent me
Qty Item Number Description/Comment Price
5 N5 NC12X1.25 34UL 35TL 19H CLSD $ .75 Ea.

Mds Total $ 3.75 US$
Ship Total $86.29
Total Due $90.04

On top of that I would have to pay 25% import tax, so the grand total would be US$112.55

Fortunately, I found a local source for lugnuts.

The weird part is, buying 4 wheels with mounted and balanced tires from TireRack was cheaper than buying locally, even when including shipping and taxes.
