    OK I need some help from SAOCA members in Australia. I'm looking at a company 'down-under', Scott's Old Auto Rubber, in Oakleigh, Victoria. Anyway, I'm trying to understand the currancy exchange thing. Here's the email I received from them; CP461 $19.80 ea AUD postage approx $10.00 AUD for USD use http://www.xe.net/pca/
    (Currency Converter)
    . I'm a little slow. :eek: So are they saying the part is $19.80 in Australian dollars with $10.00 shipping, also in AUD, and with the conversion it's $23.37 ???? in US dollars. That's what it seems to be saying, I just want to be sure. And have any of you done business with this company?

    Thanks,

    Dennis

    Another thing to remember when looking at prices in Australia is that we have a 10% GST. This is not charged when things are sold overseas. From memory Scotts have the prices with and without GST or tell local buyers to add the GST.

    I have not dealt with them personally, but they have been around for years so they must be doing something right. Their bread and butter is bits for Australian Fords and Holdens.
