If your looking at Seibon products, you will have to order form a distributor here in Canada or local to you. Unless you deliver to a USA address, you will pay a little extra for the up charge.

If you try to ship across the border, it will not be worth your time or money...not only due to your remote location, but with the added cost, and risk of damage through shipping direct to you.

You can start by reviewing the below thread on a buy we had in Toronto last year.

Here is their website direct and are really the only OE style hood you should consider, due to its near perfect fitment.

Sadly I doubt any Canadian business stocks carbon fiber hoods and trunks for IS300's. Any business that you would buy these things from is likely going to import them from the States or Japan.

I have no idea what the car scene is like in PEI... but I would continue to check all your options for carbon fiber parts... including other American distributors.

You may find others here that would also be interested in Carbon parts and save money on shipping. Some people here ordered Seibon parts together thru Tires23 in Mississauga (Toronto).

I see you have been talking to Carbon Ltd in their vendor thread.

That price seems a little high!

I know you are in P.E.I, but you should be able to get this local through a body kit or tuner Shop. Hell, even if you have to ship it to Halifax the most you should have to pay is about $700.00 - $800.00.

The price they quoted you, may not even include brokerage fees or customs fees.


There must be another way, just gone to have to give it some time. Be sure to check all of your options.

Thanks for all the info
As you stated my remote location sucks!!
I order everything in for my cars that I build.
After I posted this Carbon Limited finally got back to me,
and told me to call today which I will.
But I am uncertain if I will order now after the wait and looking at there feedback.
I might go boost instead of carbon this year

Ps my car will be done in 2 weeks I will post a pic.
I have been busy with this car,it should be nice

Not using Ebay for stuff like that
I will get it and it would be a big piece of crap(factory defect)
That is where they go to sell;)
I've seen a lot of crap come off ebay as well. I've seen a number of poorly fitting body kits... badly fitting carbon fiber parts... etc. One of the ones that annoy me the most... because I see them a lot is ebay grilles. You can tell those grilles because there's a huge gap between the top of the grille and the hood. :pissed:
