Ordering BMW Parts from the UK

I have read in some threads on here that some of you are ordering BMW parts from the UK.

What places do you buy your parts from?

Any issues I need to be concerned about- customs, shipping , VAT ?

I used to use these guys for my airhead parts. Cheaper than here even with the shipping. Most of the time I paid no duties. No VAT charge because we are non EU.

Yup. Ordered a brake line on Wednesday, was in our mailbox the following Monday. No duty or VAT.

I've ordered a ton of stuff from across the pond, and never got nailed by VAT or Duty here. I might have been lucky...

But they ship fast and it usually rivals our North American prices... Has anyone up in our Governments heard about NAFTA...??

A recent (march)purchase of one used part,a rear wheel mounting flange, and one new part the inner sealing ring arrived in mississauga 3 days and was side swiped by CBSA and I was charged duty on the new part only; this delayed delivery to my mailbox by 12 days. Not sure how they picked this one outta the bunch, just bad luck I guess. No real harm done as the riding season(snow gone from driveway) had not yet started!
PD
Best deal I could find by a long shot!

There is no duty on motorcycle parts, you can make a request to have the duty you paid reimbursed to you. Motorcycle parts fall into Category 5.

http://www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/publicati...s/e604-eng.pdf

I believe the form for reimbursement is on the back of the duty paid receipt, failing that, I know I've seen the form on line.

If you look on that receipt you got from CBSA, you'll probably find they classified your items "automotive".

It's an easy process to get your money back, well worth it.

When I order I ask to have the box clearly marked in multiple places, "Contains Duty Free Motorcycle Parts" and insure that the invoice clearly show Motorcycle Parts

I just placed an order at Motobins for some maintenance parts (fork seals, oil filter kit, air filter, spark plug, etc) for my Dakar today. I've ordered from the UK in the past (different store) and had good results. Hoping for the same with this order...
