Anyone know where I can buy Vorsteiner front bars from in Australia

Hi guys,

Does anyone know if anyone retails the Vorsteiner bumpers here in Australia? Sydney would be preferred! Or do I need to import from the states?

Thanks!

Hi mate,
Generally everyone imports from the US. Be mindful of the import duty and GST.
Try ECS tunning, Turnermotor sports or IND.

Good luck

Thanks mate. The shipping costs vary so much between distributors! Ind charge about 1500 whereas turner charges 400. Any idea why? Also do u know if I need to pay any import charges when it comes in?

If the product value is over A$1000 then you end up paying GST + Import duty as well as other custome charges. If you can get the seller to invoice it under the said amount you can get away with not paying anything. Also if the product is made in USA then it's tax exempted as per the Aus/USA trade agreement. Dave can qualify my last statement.

Good luck with your purchase
