    We don't ship to Canada for very similar (if not the same) reasons. Management here has basically said that it's not worth our time and effort to deal with customs and brokerage firms for only a small markup that we make on the forum parts sales.

    That plus UPS burned us once by sending the brokerage fee invoice a week later after we had already charged the customer what we assumed had the brokerage fees included.

    Luckily the Canadians that I have dealt with were near enough to the border that they can pickup their parts on the US side at a MailBoxesETC type place.

    My apologies to the Canadians that I haven't been able to help though.

    Jake, the boss said we can give a couple more percentage points on orders above $500 (which would be about 15 rear main seals or more)... just fyi.

    That's not just for Jake folks, that's for everyone... and over $1500 a bit more of a discount even.

    So basically orders under $500 are at employee pricing... between $500 and $1500 are 5% less and over $1500 are another 5% less!!

    Yup I am based in the wrong country. Chris when I move into the USA we will very likely be doing a LOT of business. $1500 worth of rear main seals may be on order soon. List is $94 each in Canada. I pay $75 in MB and $64 in ON with my discounts.

    The VIN is on the car in about 100 different places (two very easy to get to - driver's door edge sticker and the corner of the windshield plate)

    or your registration ... or your insurance info (like those little wallet sized cards)

    worst case scenario you start chopping the car up with torches/cutting wheels/sawzall until you find a piece of of the body or frame with the VIN stamped into it

    Re: Message to all stud kit customers, past, present, and future.

    it's a good idea to keep the ins. card in your wallet actually

    that way you will have at least one form of 'proof of ownership' if you lock your keys in you car or lose your keys

    you will need one of the three forms of 'proof of ownership' along with a govt issued photo ID to get a key cut at a dealer using GM's master keycode file (the keycode the car was built with at the factory)
    those three forms 'proof of ownership' are:
    1. title
    2. registration
    3. insurance
    the name and address listed on the 'proof of ownership' must match your info on your ID
    as long as that all checks out any GM dealer can look up your keycode
    (we only get 5 keycode requests per day though)

    so...
    1. don't be so lazy
    2. keep your insurance card in your wallet

    end thread-jack

    Re: Message to all stud kit customers, past, present, and future.

    ill keep that in mind

    i don't have problems with looseing keys i have 3 keys for the car plus i have the master key that has no chip i keep that outisde in a hide away key thing so if i ever get locked out i don't have to worry but i also keep 2 keys on me
    a friend who owns a used car lot his father tought me when i was younger always keep 2 keys to every car you drive on you incase you loose your keys you always have a loose key in your pocket
    i use a
    bobby pin and clip it into the bottom of one of my pants pockets incase anything ever happens

    the dealers near me must be breaking laws ruels or something
    cause they never ask for proofe when going to cut a key
    my dad has gone in twice to have his key cut ones for the lincoln and ones for the jeep
    i don't think he ever had to show any proofe of owner ship for them to get the key code and cut it so they probably don't care about that stuff here you would be suprised what dealers in thsi area would do
