Thought I would get in early with this and see what people thought.

First up I was thinking I would bring in some basics so we can gauge
a) how easy Suzuki Sport are to deal with
b) how much shipping costs
c) how long shipping takes

If people are happy with the outcome we can move on to bigger items etc.

I was thinking initially on getting a quote for the "Carbon Look Plug Cover" shown here
http://www.suzukisport.com/news/040304s ... index.html

Mainly because the item is light and not too expensive in the scheme of all things Suzuki Sport and their high prices ($115aud roughly + postage). Also shouldn't void the warranty, but that would have to be confirmed.

Could also mix in a few of the smaller items if people are are interested.. but I thought I would get the ball rolling anyway :)

Its not for the specifics of custom carbon fibre (althought the fact that it is Suzuki Sport is the main reason I want it.. call me ricer :) ), but more to test if ordering from Suzuki Sport in Japan is feasible.

Thanks for the link though :)

a) how easy Suzuki Sport are to deal with From what i understand they are not to difficult most of my suzisport stuff i sourced from motor-racing people.
b) how much shipping costs Depends how weight and size and method of transport do not forget customs duties etc.
c) how long shipping takes depends on method sea around 4 weeks and air around 1 week. generally smaller items are shipped buy air remembers customs can also hold up cargo and some shipping company's hold smaller items until they have enough to send together to get a deal on rates this may add another week or so.

best to look at that link and ask what they can do could be much much cheaper and custom as well

Tell me where I will find an LSD and coilover suspension for the Ignis Sport with the same level of quality and I will start getting interested.

I thought we where talking about "Carbon Look Plug Cover"

As for the quality of parts i have no arguement there Suzuki sport stuff is great ..

Cusco used to make LSD's for swifts so it may only be a small matter of time before we start seeing them for the ingis

Sheep dog also used to make suspension for the swift as well might just be a matter of time.

This is a 'trial run' and the carbon fibre was chosen because it is light and one of the less costly items on the site.

Sure buying carbon fibre locally may make this cheaper, but that isn't the purpose of ordering the item if that makes sense.
