I've never used it personally, but what do you guys think of this?

Border Free

Allows the seller to ship to Border Free via UPS if you like, and charges tax and (reasonable) brokerage fees up front

The above link is how it works for eBay, but here is how it works for all business'.

For any Canadians

If you want to find out the brokerage fees, you can go here:
http://www.ups.com/content/ca/en/shipping/cost/zones/customs_clearance.html

Note that any Canadian buyer will ALWAYS be changed tax on the declared value, so that means an additional 15% (for Ontario) of the Canadian dollar value. So the total "brokerage fee" will be what is listed in the above link PLUS 15% of the Canadian dollar value. So if the item was $70US plus $15US shipping for a total of $85US, that would be about $100CDN. Now you are taxed on that value (yes you are taxed on the shipping too) so you will owe $15 in tax PLUS the customs brokerage fee from the above link. Which would be $19.00 plus $4.25, bringing the total owed to $38.25.

Oh and you will probably be taxed on the customs brokerage charges too... so another $3.50 in tax.

I am now offering Bendix Titanium II FSVT pads and replacement rotors for those with the FSVT upgrade. Please PM me for pricing.

*For those without the upgrade I cannot help you - you need to already have the SPECIFIC FSVT caliper and caliper brackets which are only available from a dealer.*

Just to add my voice to the chorus praising this package....Stazi was a pleasure to deal with (the USPS on the other hand.... .) and the improvement in braking is very noticeable. I can't wait to try these brakes on summer tires. Thanks Stazi!

I have been running these brakes for about 2k now and they are very nice. Very affordable upgrade with improved stopping power over stock.
