    So I ordered a new front grill for my Wartburg. I bought it on eBay. It has been my past experience that when I order parts from Germany they usually take 4-6 weeks to get to me. When I got shipping quotes for the grill it was like $120 because the package was too big (long). The seller ended up shipping it through GLS and it got to me in 5 days! FedEx is the carrier that dropped it off today.

    I am going to request that people try to ship GLS every time...unbelievable!

    What did the sipping end up costing you.

    It was still expensive...$83, but it was because the package was over 3 meters long. DHL was a lot more than that.

    DHL loves to rape people on shipping. Multiply whatever it costs to ship something within Germany to the United States by a factor of 4 to 6.

    No wonder their operations went bankrupt here in the United States. Good for them!

    It also doesn't help that our dollar is half the value of the Euro and worth even less against the GBP.
