I LIVE IN JAPAN
however I don't have a YAHOO AUCTIONS japan account.

I want to buy this thing, but how much is it to ship home? I dunno.

can I separate the spoiler and trunk and ship it home?

also, is there any benefit at all to buying an authentic version 6 trunk over the RS trunk? Lighter?

or should I just wait a little while longer for a blue spoiler to pop up?

I also live in Japan and tried to bid on some aero mud guards last week. I ended up not losing the auction though. As for setting up an account, it helps if your Japanese is good. Luckily, I have about 30 Japanese guys in my research lab to help me out. My tutor set up the account for me and it seemed pretty easy to do. Most items on Yahoo Auctions Japan are COD. However, shipping large items within Japan is super cheap. For a set of Ver. 5 seats it's only 3500 yen. However shipping things back to America is really really expensive. I would avoid using FedEx, but that may be the only option. Something like a trunk with wing may run upwards of $500 if not more. PM me if you need some help setting up an account.

I won the auction, but now I have to send the damn thing home. I am thinking of just leaving the trunk here in Japan for the garbage, since I have no need for it!

I don't have tools to take the wing off the trunk! I have to borrow/buy some!

What a headache packing is!
