Favourite haunts include design911, pelican parts, fcpeuro, rosepassion, maybe suncoast porsche parts.
Bugger, don't mind pay local FX & GST but the mark up makes it worth running the gauntlet through customs for the +$1000 limit. With those sources have you ever been pinged? I am looking at a Europipe exhaust and at $6.5K NZD I'd like to hope I could avoid the unnecessary taxation

Yes, customs will keep you honest and charge GST appropriately. I sometimes get caught out with consolidating a lot of small stuff with youshop.

Also try Sonnen Porsche for genuine Porsche parts. They are usually cheaper again than sunset.

It used to be that small packages would randomly get through, but now I'm pretty much rogered each time no matter size or price.
