Black Kidney Grilles for a 435????

How hard can it possibly be to get black kidneys from the dealer? I ordered them in November and they said January, its now February and they tell me they should leave Germany March 15. So I could have them end of March or early April.

Can you get these anywhere else in Canada?

I ordered these for my F30 from ECS Tuning. The price was right way cheaper than from the dealer and shipping was practically nothing to Canada (14 US) where I got screwed was duties and taxes charged at the border. Part was about 120 US plus (14 US) shipping and then I get charged 69 CAD for duties and taxes.

What a crock but still a lot cheaper than getting them from the dealership.

So you basically paid $200 for 2 grills from USA what does the dealers charge?

How did you end up with 69$ in taxes? Duties is 6% tax is 13% and $10 charge from canadapost

From ECS 2 performance M grilles are $130 USD (Dealership cost is $130 a side so $260 for the set).

To be honest I have no clue how duties and taxed cost me $69 CAD. I just paid it and didn't want to be bothered but that is what I had to pay UPS when it was delivered.

This is completely off topic but I ordered 3 shirts from the US and it was through UPS and a month later I got slapped with a $130 bill for customs and various other bullshit.

I will try the place mentioned above, I can live with $69.00

You don't get a choice from ECS UPS is the only choice to get it delivered across the border...

Never used Autogeek. Have to think about them next time I'm thinking of ordering across the border.
Thanks for the heads up
