    You sure on the price quoted ? These are £67 plus direct shipping via MSA. I know 'cos I have a pair - really neat.

    yes but you have to pay VAT, handling and shipping, how did you get them landed for £67?

    the Paypal exchange rate on purchases
    Paypal Exchange rate
    1 GBP = 1.2354 USD £76 pay vat on this £92

    + $43 shipping and admin charge to pay VAT in UK shipper as they don't do this at source + wait a while

    On other forums, you can't carp on for sale threads even if the facts might be out? Perhaps you don't pay Tax in France we do on imports over £15

    I negociated a 10% discount for the French club members which helps already - surprised that this is not common practice for UK owners.

    Good luck with the sale, if the price is right - they'll sell no probs.

    yes, but you questioning it does not help! loads of extra costs when you import from the US. Agreed getting some group buys in would be a good idea. What also annoys me is the US suppliers really have long lead times some suspension stuff had 6 months on asking

    Happy to get £100 + the shipping as they are just sitting there annoying me now

    Sorry, didn't realise you wanted to sell at the same price as the shop goods would become.

    What really annoys me is MSA over-sizing their boxes to cost oodles in shipping. Whay I go via Zcardepot now....with whom I also have neogicated a club discount.

    Just to be clear, my discounts obtained are for individual owners/buyers, NOT group buys.

    I have been looking for this sort of thing for a while but was put off by the cost especially as I would have to hack it about anyway to get it to fit to RHD. Might as well make some myself using the existing panels as templates. Same goes for the rear speaker panel. To be honest, I prefer listening to the sound of my engine, only listening to music when parked up or on a boring motorway drive so spending out on an expensive stereo that would be drowned out anyway is not really on my radar.

    Maybe they could be 3D printed in the UK?

    Not sure that they'll fit on a 260Z seeing where the fusebox is placed - eh #Steve Burns.

    We tried them in a 240 LHD and compared to what an RHD should be, it's likely you need some trimming only on some of the edges to make them fit. There are some 280 versions available in the US that cater for the fusebox (more expensive again!)

    these 240Z versions are well made and look like a stock part, I don't think a fibreglass version would look anywhere near as good

    They will fit RHD ok
    I had a set in my last car . However when fitted in a RHD they do reduce the space for you right foot
    As the speaker comes out close to the throttle pedal.
    Plenty of space on a LHD car

    Just my 2 cents....

    I visited California earlier this year and took a trip to the MSA/Z store. It's a pretty non-descript place in a fairly residential area of Orange County.

    I found them quite clinical to deal with. They didn't seem that interested in talking about Zs, and I got the impression that had I not pre-ordered what I wanted, I'd have been pretty stuck (there's not a lot to 'see' inside the shop, and I didn't find the staff particularly helpful).

    I enquired about a potential discount for Z Club members, but they offered nothing :(

    If I was looking for parts I'd first go to Z Car Depot (great service) or rock auto (cheap prices, with shipping and VAT factored in at point of order). Failing that I would probably use MSA again

    Sorry if this is off topic, just thought I'd share my experience!

    they normally give 10% or more on most things.

    What we need is an MSA type place in the UK/Europe.

    Back to topic anybody wants to buy a speaker panel kit for a 240Z?

    Fits Right Hand Drive and a pain to buy from MSA directly

    I thought that you were only into 'made in Japan' and expensive/exclusive parts ? I'm confused....:confused:
