they are all expensive. the size means it's pain and puts the OHS up high etc etc.

the best you can do it wrap it tight and keep the other all size small and weight down.

None of them are perfect.

Ask the parts departments of most spares - they are lucky to get discounts only lucky because they send out over 100 orders a Day.

Haha na he said his in Wollongong area but bumper is from QLD.

But with a few courier companies if you pick up from the depot sometimes you can save about 30% off and if the guy thats sending it can drop it off at the depot and you pick it up from the nearest depot you can save about 50%.

Im sure Transdirect can do that because i received a rear bumper from QLD to NSW by memory it was from www.e-go.com.au and cost $ 95 by memory but that was 2yrs ago but it would be much more.
