Default Raid 340mm Silberpfeil Steering Wheel group buy

I've heard back from Carnewal with regards to a group buy of 5 Raid 340mm Silberpfeil Airbag Steering Wheels. It's not a huge saving, but it is a saving (usual price is 375 euro for the wheel alone). There is the option to leave off the model designation on the airbag cover.

Smooth leather:


Perforated:


------
Raid 710121 Silberpfeil 340mm (smooth or perforated leather) : 343 euro
Hub BMW Z3 : 52 euro
Shipping to UK : 20 euro
Total ; 415+21%vat = 502,15 euro

We need 4-5 days to get the parts in stock.

------

The orders can be placed individually, direct with Carnewal, so no handling of cash or responsibility laid upon any forum member.

They advise that when buying from an EU country, EU VAT is applied and no further VAT would be due on delivery to the UK. Anybody know 100% if that's the case?

Anybody interested?

If your UK VAT registered, then they shouldn't even charge VAT. As an individual that would sound correct that the goods are in EU free circulation, so therefore no VAT is charged. So at today's rates we are looking at £396 all in.

Certainly interested, Perforated with no horride writing on the airbag!

I'm not sure as I thought goods bought into this country attract VAT so it is added at source or entry I thought? Vat registration shouldn't make any difference since that's just a case of if you can claim it back or not?

Mine is smooth leather but agree the perforated looks very nice and given the option I'd go with that.

When you export from the UK to an EU country, as long as you have an VAT number for that entity there is no VAT charged to the customer. You have to fill in an Intrastat formfor HMRC, I presume other EU countries have similar schemes

Have you posted this over on Zroadster, we might be able to get more than 5, and therefore a greater reduction?

I've spoken to somebody at HMRC, to get it from the horse's mouth (nice horse called Claire, lol) and she confirmed that the only VAT payable would be that applied in the country of the sale - so no UK VAT on import

I've got an account over there, not really posted. Best coming from a known member over there I'd suggest.

Is the hub for single or 2 stage airbag?

I was under the impression that the fitting kit was the same, but that the approach to fitting varied between the single or 2 stage airbag model Zs. However, if that's not the case, individuals would be able to specify their fitting kit when they place their order anyway.

Thanks very much, Aceman I think the best way to move things forward is just to highlight this thread and ask interested parties to add their name to the list.
