Customs stung me $230 for my cross drilled rotors and ceramic pads.

I asked Chad to tel GTHaus to only put $1000 dollars on the invoice for the fatback system, to try and save the probably $500 dollar import duty.

Still waiting for it to ship though, should be any day now.

Please keep us updated as I had the same idea about only putting $1000 or less on the invoice to avoid import duty, just out of curiosity was Chad obliging? :-)

They say "products are not EPA or CARB approved and are intended for off-road/track use only"

I need to check what the car's renewal agency has to say about this, since they check for emissions and such.

It's at GTHaus discretion I believe.

You are correct but we have a fantastic relationship and if anyone can make it happen it's me I'm 99% sure they are doing it because I reminded them 10x


I can do it for anyone as long as they get with me after or before they order.

So we are talking about avoiding tax by asking for false statements with reduced prices? The idea is not new but this should be on PMs, guys. If there ever was a possibility, you didn't help keeping it alive by posting it on open forums...

Re: GT Haus Meinschaft Exhaust for 2014 Wk2 Review

My GTHaus turned up Wednesday it cost $450 to get it out of customs. Will be fitted this Friday and the exhaust shop will do some sound tests for me. They will take readings of the standard exhaust at Idle than at 3000 revs. After installation they will take the same readings in closed then open modes.

It will be interesting to see (hear) what the differences are. http://jeepgarage.org/images/smilies/biggrin.gif
