Interest in a container shipment to Down Under?

A friend of mine is sending a partial container of Land Cruiser parts to Melbourne... I can complete the container with US parts, if there is interest. I *believe* the shipping date to be around mid-January.

Any interest? I would prefer for one person to pick up all of the parts, and take care of the redistribution, so that the Land Cruiser guy in Melbourne doesn't have to deal with tens of Bimmer guys. This could become a semi-regular thing, and a great source for inexpensive parts (relatively speaking!).

Let me know...
Joe

And when it's on the way back, put a bunch of euro bumpers in it!

Shipping

Interested in the shipping thing, mainly for wheels and bodykits and E30 M3 parts, does he have room for this stuff and when does it depart? is there a limit on what items, size, weight etc.. and is there some form of standard cost?Thanks.

There are a few things that I could get from the US and have them shipped over if this is still happening. I'm definitely interested.

It is still a possibility... I never got any solid interest, so I haven't been pushing it.

I think the container leaves early January?

So would I need to get whatever I buy posted to you and then you'll pack it in the container?
I'm just looking to get a few small things so it won't take up much room.

Things like this never work. It's a shame. If someone really had the time and money to organise something like this properly it could be a great benefit to the comunity..

I've been talking to one US-based member about sending some Subaru Liberty parts over to him. I know where there are quite a few chrome early bumpers in good condition too.

Could work well sending a container to the USA, then bring it back with E30 parts? It would be best for large/bulky items like suspension/brake stuff, 5-lug stuff, wheels, bodykit stuff. On our end it would have to clear customs and pay duties, too I believe.
