I can help you here...I've spend about $2,000 USD buying from the US and shipping it here to Canada.

I'd recommend buying from the ECelica store for the following:

- They ship through USPS, so when you purchase it will show you the price on the site for shipping (it's usually been $5-$7). When the product arrives at your nearest CanadaPost outlet, they will mail you a notice that you have a parcel to pick up. Before picking it up you will have to pay them a shipping fee that is based on the product being carried the rest of the way from the US border by CanadaPost. This amount is NOT that much. When I bought my Injen Intake, Pedal Kit, Broadway Mirror and a Volt Gauge, ALL from the ECelica store, I only had to pay about $14 to my post office to get the box (and it was a big box, haha)

Most online stores in the US ship through UPS or Fedex and that's where you run into the customs and duties that reallysuck. As an example, I bought a set of TRD sway bars from a US dealership who ships via UPS. The sways cost about $330 and I had to pay $25 shipping to the seller and just about $100CDN to UPS to take delivery of the item. The thing is, even with all those fees it still costs less than buying that same item from CANADA, so just do your homework and you'll see these things.

The ECelica store is worth it thumbsup Shipping through USPS can be about 2-3 weeks to Canada but it's not that long. Send your Cheque/Money order XpressPost to Cali for about $6 and your payment will arrive in 3-4 days.

Good luck! thumbsup
