    I'd really like to get the C36 front bumper, but they're near impossible to find

    Been looking for ages!! There was one on eBay.de last week but the seller wouldnt reply my emails.. bloody thing sold for 1 euro!!! Was slightly damaged but easily repairable.

    I can get a replica fibreglass one for £238.. but there is a 8-10 week wait..

    It's quite common, A majority won't reply to emails (Ignorant bunch of b***ards) from other European countries, Especially Us (The UK)... I don't bother emailing them any more. If they don't offer UK postage, It's a no go! I tried to get hold of a guy who had a bumper I was looking for, I even offered to have it collected by a courier... They weren't interested. Again it went for buttons?

    Would you deal with a German bloke who ether spoke very little English, or non at all if you were selling an item?

    I can see why most dont bother...

    I had some help from a friend was fluent in German! The emails were in German first and English second. It's just the way most of them are just down right ignorant!

    I myself have bought many items from Germany aswell, all I meant was that you cant really blame your average Germany breakers yard from not wanting the hassle of an international sale.
