I've used a closed deck set from that seller and wasn't too happy with it. See here: http://www.saab-v4.co.uk/speedball/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=3668 Pretty sure Victor Reinz do open deck gaskets too.

Motomobil or Skandix have them. Less than 30 each.

That's not exactly cheap! Plus importing stuff into the UK has become expensive/ cumbersome. Worth giving Brands Hatch Performance a call, they're a VR dealer: https://www.shopbhp.com/

It depends but hardly anyone seems to understand on what or whom!

I just had a look at the rates. There is no fee for non-excise goods under 135 GBP. Oddly, you have to call to get a quote for superior amounts. This seems rather impractical.

Autodoc.co.uk has these gaskets as well. 10,81 GBP each (Ajusa brand). Nice day to all.

No fees (in theory, many parcels are apparently still invoiced), but you still need to pay VAT. This should be collected by the seller, who must be VAT registered in the UK. I've heard of people paying no VAT at all, VAT to the seller and to customs or the courier as well, or parcels being held up or returned at the border. It's one big mess...

Good find!

Right: https://www.autodoc.co.uk/ajusa/7244419
Full engine set: https://www.autodoc.co.uk/ajusa/7248387

I have no experience with this brand, does anyone know if they're any good?
