im considering buying some tein suspension from rhd japan and maybe an intercooler kit and im just wondering if anyone one here has any experience with these guys and has any good/bad comments about them?
One thing to remember with buying from overseas is that if its over 1k in price you will have to pay import taxes and duties, just something to remember.
Also does anyone know the product numbers for the Tein coilovers for the legnum/Galants so we could try to get a price from an Australian stockist?
i've been quoted about $1900 for tein coilovers in australia, and i almost bought the ones off RHS for ~$1500 EMS.
I can get genuine GReddy intercooler kits thru work but they are the top of the line GReddy coolers and are not cheap. they do however have a specific kit for the VR4 which comes with some piping im just not sure how much piping.
At the VERY least (and I mean VERY least as you'll most likely get all sorts of hidden charges) you'll be charged 5% stamp duty and 10% gst on what you import over 1000 bucks. Remembering that the stamp duty and gst will always go last and in that order to really screw the money out of you.
Buy local and support the local market (here I am saying that when we're all importing cars lol), mainly for the support network so if anything goes wrong..you have a way to get it sorted...if it's from overseas...you'll be on your own.
And that to me is priceless.
hey 2002VR-4, as you are a stockist of tein coilovers and are located in sa you may be able to help me with my question about coilovers.
Ive heard from a bunch of people that they are illegal? do you know if this is true or is it just that they are illegal in the sense that the car is to low?
cheers for your help if you know anything
