yes that's the one never had a problem with it :y
Thanks. It seems to be specifically for SAE 3/16"  pipe. That is fine as long as Omega pipe is SAE 3/16".
think standard brake pipe id 3/16 :y

I have been in receipt of similar generosity in the past (from a different member) and have made a donation  to the kind Oofer's favourite charity as he would not accept direct payment.

Ron.
good idea will try and find out his charity thanks

Not sure why there seems to be so much fuss about stuff coming from Germany...   ...the main warehouses have always been Germany, so its nothing new.

Ever since I've had my Omegas I've occasionally had to wait the extra day, because the only stock was in Germany.

not a problem with it coming from Germany it was the actual cost of the part through the local Vauxhall dealer :y
Sorry, yes, I was picking up on somebody else's shock that Opel parts might not be held in the UK.

The price you were quoted was daft. They used to be about 12.

no problem i think all prices are going to rise for the Omega, same with older fords i needed a clutch fork ford wanted 100+vat got oe one for 27 all in :y

Definitely worth it if you want to bring in a lot of stuff, or bigger stuff (anything that'll fit in a 40' container! ;D).. Ron has been great to deal with (granted my stuff is still in Miami - next container leaves at the end of this month) and I'm told has been doing business for years, which has to be a good sign :)

29th of when  ;D

The 29th of never, I think!

$50 +$22 shipping +$15 import duty estimated :y thanks
Thanks for the heads up will give it a try :y

Depending on urgency - and appreciate it would be crazy for something this small as a one-time thing - it can work out very cost effective to get things shipped in by someone like Ron @ STS Imports; you have your item delivered to Miami (and often US folks are doing free postage internally), it gets put in the next container load out and delivered to the UK for a nominal sum (I'm paying 200 to have about ~300Kg of parts shipped in - including a gearbox, engine rotating assembly, and all ancilliaries for a rebuild).

You are probably a bit light on the duty btw; 3% duty plus 20% VAT plus a handling charge (usually 10-20 depending on courier, included in the price from someone like Ron)
