    Also look at:
    http://www.autohausaz.com/html/autohaus.html

    The prices are often very good and their service/answers to questions etc are too . . but more recently the O/S shipping options have been expensive. In the past I have asked a friend in the US to accept the goods for me and then post them on.

    FWIW

    Partstrain.com also do a wide selection of mechanical parts. Lots of gaskets for tranny I recall.

    With regards to local US delivery sites like bongous.com and shipito.com allow you to setup a US mail address and depending on your subscription also allow repackaging, which can help save on freight.

    I am looking into purchasing some stuff so I have been researching these companies. So far thinking of going with Shipito as they are based in California and logical freghting point to Aus (if that is a word).

    I am still working out my shopping list, but my initial reason to buy stuff from the US was that I couldn't find a Heat sink type transmission cooler here.

    Another word on the online stores like PartsTrain and BongoUS is that they have a great online sales assistance system so it makes the sales process, even between the US and Australia, a lot easier. Basically it is an instant messaging system rolled into their website. You get to speak to someone. You get the facts. No dealing with egos and normally they get the sale. It is a great innovation in e-commerce, although the technology has been around for a long time, it is only now, I have started to see it actually being put into practice. And yes I am an IT geek. Just in case you were wondering.

    Oh smallcar.com is also a handy site. They do subaru conversion kits, but also sell a selection of Vanagon parts.

    PM me if you want any more information.

    Cheers
    Hally

    PS Can we create a T3 website sticky?

    I have noticed that The Bus Stop here in Oz have some parts for T3 but depends what you are after.
    There is also Just Kampers in the UK that have T3/T25 stuff - I was on their site the other day. Think Roy @ The Bus Stop gets his T3 stuff from them.

    Thanks Guy's
    All of this info is great!

    I was also looking at stuff from Just Campers. But I thought that I would ask the question as we get more bang for our buck in the U.S.

    Thanks heaps Ash.

    P.S I'm looking forward to catching up with T3 owners at future vw events (brisbane area mainly) I'll also be at Valla just look for the green and cream 82 with "hop" reg.

    These guys were good and actually posted the stuff to Oz. Although as usual it cost an arm and a leg. They included a groovy catalogue as well, and I received the stuff (shocks0 inside two weeks.

    sales@airheadparts.com

    Give em a go

    word of warningdo not visitZ&S services in south africa
    their site has a TROJAN in it, it took me 4 hours to get rid of it, it puts porn pics on your desk top, tries to sell you some dodgy spyware / antivirus crap and there are constant pop-ups telling you your accounts are being copied hacked etc etc. it even hid my recycle bin so i couldnt dispose of things!!! (very smart)

    I'm getting a little worried,

    I ordered some T3 parts from Go Westy in the U.S. They emailed me to inform that it was posted on 31st August, which is now some 14 days ago... I thought the package would a have arrived by now. They're usually very quick. Do you think I'm worrying a little too much?

    Cheers

    Greg
