summit have a special on twisted wedge 170 for $959 US. This works out $40 over the $1000 for customs..... :x . Can i get summit to ship the heads individually (so paperwork will show each head about $520 aus) and get them to send one head to me at my home address and the other to my holiday house under my old mans name?

what have you guys who have ordered parts 1000 aus to get by customs?

Nope, but i wouldnt really worry, I had an order of $992 US recently, and with the $48 processing fee it came in at $203 for duties. It really isnt worth the hassle, and summit wont ship them separately, or invoice you separately for each individual head, I looked at that as well.

summit will sell them individually. (probably not at special pricing tho.
I bought my set this way. I placed 2 seperate orders & paid no duty :)

They look like they are good value for money atm, considering the exchange rate & the cost to work a set of stock E7 heads from a local machine shop.

Cheers
