    Not personally bought any but have heard some reports of iirc £40 customs charge. @PauloHRC got some a few years ago i believe? If you get some keep me upto date on the quality etc. After some rothmans plastics

    I paid about £320 for my latest set (auctmarts via ebay) and the customs charge was about £50.

    Yes £40 to £50 is what you would expect to pay customs charges now, I'd definitely go the Chinese route though. Sounds like you need a couple of panels so you may as well just buy a full set then at least you'll have some spares!

    I've just put on some back in Dec, can't remember exactly the customs figure but was under 50 i think it was around 40... the fairings themselves worked out about 400 quid... was going do a little review with some pics but not got around to it yet... I used iFairings.. I suspect a lot of the different suppliers' quality is much of a muchness.... but you really can't grumble for the price, I was surprised how good they look and generally how well they fit.
