Assistance requested getting parts to Australia - 03/07/14 06:41 AM

Hi every one,

Been getting quotes for some parts for the Sporty.

One of the places I looked up was this company http://www.kiapartsoverstock.com/AboutUs.aspx. Kia parts overstock
Based in Lumberton North Carolina.

I have been quite lucky and have received a very good discount from the local stealership in Australia (better than trade) and most prices have been either cheaper or compatible to what I can find on.line or eBay within reason to not worry about sourcing from over Sea's and paying for postage etc.

one item that was significantly more expensive from Australia was the upper body mounts. my body mount are extremely cracked and I want to replace them when I fit my body lift. From Overstock I can source the uppers for $18 ea opposed to $48 odd ea from Australia? the lowers were cheaper at home.

X 8 units it is worth trying to source them from Kia Parts Overstock but the company won't post overseas for consignments under $10000.

So my question is, does anybody live near Lumberton North Carolina.
or in the area where Kia Parts Overstock is and would be willing to assist me getting these upper body mounts and posted to Australia (pending shipping cost to Australia to make it worthwhile). If you could send me a PM we can discuss in private how to do it.

appreciate the assistance from my fellow Sporty owners <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/patriot.gif" alt="" />

Have you tried fourgreen.com? they're pretty much the best resource for NOS Korean parts- in fact many stealerships here use them instead of the manufacturer to get stock-, and they ship right from Korea (which would be a HUGE advantage for you since going from Korea>US>Aus is extremely cost inefficient). I'm on the Festiva forum (a Festiva is another Mazda/Kia thing but with a Ford logo on it) and a few guys on there swear by them.
You're going to need the Kia part number for anything you get from them though, their catalog is absolutely painful.

Thanks Tommy Chu! I'll give them a go.

On the ECU you need to send it to Australia to have the chip fitted and programmed after you have chosen what fuel RON you are going to use.

unfortunately I am not in the right area to get it done where I currently live.

You need someone based in Brisbane Sydney or Melbourne.

cheers, Chris

I can get you stock Kia upper body mounts for $18.50 each and shipping for 8 will be about $80.00.
