not sure if this is in the right forum or not.....
but since i am an 80's guy i'll put it here
As some of you may or may not know i am an Australian citizen living in the USA. we are travelling back home in January to see my family.

Is there anything Subaru related(or not) that i could fit in a suitcase (no EJ DR....) that is available in oz and not stateside - legally(i know i could sell bundy rum here but the tax people might have issue with a couple cases..)?

i wasn't into subarus in Australia so don't remember that stuff.

SAAS steering wheel adaptors come to mind - i will be buying one for myself...
any of the Aussie guys have good sources or info or pricing?

could probably fit 5-10 of these for the trip back if there was some interest
would just need to make my money back, maybe put some extra into USMB????
used/junkyard stuff would be tricky to get clean but........

post some suggestions or interest...

Carbureted EJ engines come to mind. I'd check those out while you're there! Even if just to see one.

I'm with Jerry, I would love one. I always wanted an EJ22 with a set of Weber IDF's.

I agree corner markers seem to be a hot commodity.

Carbed EJ engines were not sold new in Oz, so I doubt you would be able to find many (if any) of them!

The corner markers look like this. Same color as what the U.S. has, but the amber section is raised out.

If you can find someone with the E30 (80s BMW 3 series) rear spoiler on the leones (the short, black rubber one) please pass their info along. A little large to ship via suitcase, but a contact so I can get one would be very helpful!

I actually had one of these on an RX sedan I had a couple years back. Would have kept it if I knew it was rare.

Damn.

No, they were never sold in the U.S. I think they were commissioned by Subaru of AU and I'm never quick enough to snag them off of Nasioc when they pop up...

Other things I would be interested in are: EA81 headlamp washer system with nozzles, water tank, button, relay, hardware, etc. and a set of tan EA81 wagon rear shoulder-belt harnesses, the three point style harnesses.

I would happily pay for any/all of these parts!

Thank you! Definitely let me know. They shouldn't take up too much space!!
