Canadian Web Sites

Just wondering Any good canadian websites to order upgrades from????? I need rims and a m3 or Mtech II front bumper for my 2000 323i sedan....

Every time i order stuff from USA, Customs and shippings kill me. $200 doller parts end up being $400

Any idea?

You can order from the USA, but only if they ship USPS mail. Then customs brokerage is $8 max for a parcel. BavAuto and Pelican use USPS for me always.
For rims, use TireRack.com they do their own customs clearing with UPS and charge $30 customs brokerage, and $125 shipping for 4 rims to Edmonton +GST. Duty can apply depending on where the rims are made. The good part is you don't pay UPS any brokerage when they deliver the wheels.
Turner Motorsport has a M-Tech bumper for $399. You'd have to check but I think they clear their own UPS customs (like TireRack) , so a cleared package costs about $80 to ship by them. You'd have to phone and tell them you cant order if UPS clears, only if the seller clears and charges an amount at purchase that you are okay with.

I always just arrange to have the customs declared at a lower value. Anything marked as a gift <$60CAD pays no duty.

bimmian.com isn't that bad for some stuff. The CSL's I got ended up costing me the same it would have cost me getting them from the U.S from modbargains. The same is true for the interior xenon kit.

For people that are close to the border, have your packages shipped to one of those places on US side and go pick up the package yourself. Usually shipping is free within USA, so you are saving big right there and sometimes you don't even pay duty/tax at the border
