Much customs ordering from Japan? Only a waterpump 1 Week, 5 Days ago Karma: 19
Hi,

Has anyone ordered small stuff from Japan and got charged for customs?
I know they got me 6 years ago from US when I got my wiseco pistons. I paid some €60 over the €500

I'm thinking to get an Aisin waterpump for my REV3 tubby for €45 + postage

Thanks for your input

It's hit and miss. Quite often the values declared are harder to interpret from Japan as their post dockets etc look very different to our own. I think on an item of that price you are likely not to get stung.

I think I'll chance it and I will order one.

This pump supposed to be the exact very same thing what you get from the OEM Toyota box (16110-79135). I may receive one with the TOYOTA marking ground off of it as Aisin can't sell it otherwise in their Aisin box.

The thing with these Aisins that (as I read) there are many counterfeit units around, so I'm a bit worried. I will also buy one from Toyota (Bloody 137 euros!) and I will compare them in depth

TB job is coming up and I want to put in best thing I can.

Importcarparts.co.uk got them for 30 euros with 2 years warranty, Ben got it for 40 with 1 year, TCB got for 40 with 1 year, but the pump will be in my car for minimum 6 years.

What do you think? What should I buy?

By the way, the Aisin pump is Aisin WPT-128
