I hear you, all I was referring to was the cost of international shipping to bring stuff over... I like to think of it as our ocean tax!I do not agree, look at the international pricing for these units, when you do currency exchange they are roughly the same cost. (EDIT: from a quick Google search I did).
When I bought my Mishimoto FMIC I paid $800 for it delivered to the door from an AUS retailer, looking at US sites the cheapest I can find it for is $900 AUD with national delivery. I have found items which we pay about 2/3 of what I could find it on the shelf in the USA.
Also the taxes we pay in Australia contribute to our free medical services which if taken away people would scream, it's a little bit of tax with huge benefit. I could not imagine my life not having that free medical service, we are not the lucky country without reason.
