rotherham is about 45 mins for me.. north of nottingham on the m1.

would be a lot cheaper to arrange a courier..shouldnt be more than about £20..

I use United Parcels listed on ebay they use Parcelforce24 and give insurance up to £150.00 for £12.95.

If the seller tells you they have no packing materials do what I did once sent the seller a small roll of bubblewrap, half a rool of parcel tape and some "Fragile" stickers.

I bought a faulty LCD TV last week seller wanted £25.00 for Standard Parcels I sent United Parcels in for £12.95.

If the seller won't go along with a courier collection I will collect the item from them, as not far away, then wrap it and courier it up to you.

Pity it wasn't last week Mr.Moles "courier service" could have collected it from the midlands meet and dropped it on the way back to Peterhead.

Please remember that if you have a bumper to collect with a lip on this will only just fit into your car (lexus 200) you have to place it through the passager front seat while the seat is reclined.

Beware of damaging your paint work as you push it in.

Hope you enjoy you new purchase.

well peeps drove down today and picked it up took me just over 71/2 hours their and back and what a amazing day it was had the shades on temp stay'd between 26-29 so was nice and hot even got a tan!!also used just over tank which i thought was good

the trd spoiler is the real mccoy and its in better condition than i thought!!cant wait to get it on!!

sad story though driving down shades on beats pumping when i hear a bang followed by the loudest exhaust note you've ever heard i must have hit something. i stopped at the next garage checked under the car and found the exhaust pipe(back box) had been ripped off the flange!!!not happy. :crybaby::crybaby::crybaby::crybaby:

Great news that you're happy with the spoiler, but bummer about your exhaust :(

Jason_l has been offering to give away (free !) a back box here, don't know if he's still got it.
