Default Re: OE CSL Boot Lid - Group-Buy

I am still in the market for a CSL boot lid. I just purchased a Recaro Seat from Germany and the sales guy told me that there is no duty for items under $1000.

I would join if the discount is big enough. For some reason I thought shipping was a bit less though.

I am in Canada (Toronto area) and I am interested if there's a 5% or higher discount...I presume shipping and duties are similar to the US.

Thanks for organizing this!

If you know someone that can do it, I am all ears and would be happy to try and arrange it. I am just another E46 M3 enthusiast, so I don't have any automotive supplier connections in that regards. This was my original thought as well. Considering the large size of these items, I am not sure if it would be much of a discount shipping from Schmiedmann to one location, and then from that location, breaking the orders down and shipping to their final domestic locations. It would seem that the cost would end up all adding right back up. If you or anyone else knows how to do this, let's do it! That would considerably bring down the cost. At the end of the day, shipping costs are really what kills the large discount possibilities. It might be cheaper to boat them over, but then wait time will go up dramatically, compared to the ~5 day air-shipping.

Maybe one of our sponsors would be willing to help, but I doubt there would be much incentive considering this under cuts there price and they wouldn't be profiting off of this GB.

Anyone here own or run a domestic shipping facility or import business?

It may be. I am just quoting what the rep from Schmiedmann quoted me for shipping fees. If you know a way to do it cheaper, I am all about it. Reducing shipping costs will drastically make this GB more fruitful.

Shipping is usually the issue with big items from overseas, but I am paying about half that for a Recaro Seat (35 lbs) so I would think the trunk should be less. I think they are using DHL, but probably have better rates because they ship a lot. Then again, Schmiedmann should have good rates as well.

I can also wait longer than 5 days.

Edit: Something is funny with Schmiedmann, It's showing me $1049.17 including shipping and handling with no discount. 10% would put it at 945.

Didn't vote, but I'm tempted if we can bring shipping down. Trunk has some hail damage anyway, so I could use a good excuse to go for a CSL trunk
