    Default Great British Pound

    Hey has anyone noticed the pound is now 1.73 aussie dollars (apparently a 31 year low against the USD). I am starting to gather parts for my project car and was wondering what goodies that only seem to be in the UK would be worth buying at the moment. I was thinking ECU parts but also SPAX are offering 100 off their coilover kits t the moment and seem to be around A$800.
    It would be a great time to get any parts that would be normally around the A$1000 mark to avoid the GST on import.

    Like to come but my white car is sadly not going anywhere at the moment. (hopefully it will start this weekend). I so i'll come along. I have started on my silver project car with my 9 & 10yo boys. Once they worked out which way to swing a spanner it was surprising how fast a car can be diassembled. Reassembly well that's a different story.....

    I'm also watching the pound. I'm thinking I'll get my Baker hose kits, I have one other person interested in splitting the freight.

    Nice a white and a silver car... Same here just my boys are 1.5 and 2.5 years old... although the eldest does know which way to turn a spanner already

    I'm interested in a set of hoses for my Si gti6 convention.
