I sincerely appreciate the effort but I would like to make two suggestions. Please post individual auctions for each item instead of stating ''Three in Stock''. It provides the consumer with a more reassuring shopping experience when they can click with confidence knowing they are buying the item pictured. Which brings me to my other suggestion. Larger more detailed pictures of the actual items. If you are posting stock photos because you lack a digital camera I suggest you purchase an inexpensive one off ebay and shoot your own. :) Other then that I love that you're providing this service it's just a shame that all this stuff is way way way out of my price range. I hope those prices start coming down as competition and after market goodies start trickling in from more than these limited sources. :)

FOWVAY...I totally agree with you about prices.For the very few of us that are bringing Smart replacement parts and accessories to market in North America, we are all faced with the sad fact that the only current sources are in euroland. Having been 52 years in the P&A business before retiring three years ago, I had the possibility of sourcing items from places like Romania to Brazil to Taiwan not to mention the more common source countries. Now, only europe. Unfortunately, the dollar buying power has shrunk to all time lows making importing near impossible. That is the problem with the prices Fast Eddie, myself and a handful of others in North America are faced with. Add to that the added security complication delays, the cost of shipping and all the fuel surcharges tacked on by everyone "some even just to add a few extra point" and you wind up with a $200 set of brake pedals with the Brabus "B" on it... outragous.On the other hand, the price of the european made Smart has remained the same despite the 20% devaluation of the dollar over the past two years. Smart is not making a profit on this car over here.Personally I cant wait for some alternative sources of products... i.e. Brazil, Taiwan, Singapore or MAYBE HERE IN OUR COUNTRIES. But until there is a base of at least 150,000 vehicles this will not happen.On the brighter side....I AM SELLING THE SAME PART I BUY IN EUROLAND BACK TO EUROPE !!!WHY? Because the base price of the item PLUS A 19%+ SALES TAX minus the almost 60% the euro has over the dollar and our "cheap" postal rates makes the same product cheaper here than in euro. BTW, gasoline in Germany this week is close to $7.50 a gallon (us or imperial almost the same) All this is to ask that you dont be too hard on those of us who risk our $'s to bring in and inventory items hoping to move them out at a small markup to cover our risk and expenses.Surely Im not out of line to speak for any other importer by saying ...Thank you very much for your continued support and we will continue to offer the best product at the fairest prices.sherwinsmartcarpartsSouth Carolina

I don't know where you are in Germany, but I was there on May 1st too and 98 premium was selling at 1.46 Euros per L, which is more like $8.00 per US gallon, and over $10.50 per Imperial gallon! The cheapest I found was Spain, at 1.24 er L and France next at 1.34 (at supermarkets).
