FastLane goes international !!

Hey,
I just found out that the buy parts has gone international. Great news, I wish I had known sooner. Previously the parts stuff was blocked, now we can get to it. Maybe a PM could go out to all with non USA ip addresses so that every one knows.

It is indeed great news for all of us non-US contributors.

However, a word of warning for the unwary - take a look at your country's import taxes. Here in Holland you get charged tax not only on the value of the goods but also the shipping costs... a bit of a pants situation in my opinion... BUT THERE IS MORE GOOD NEWS!!! The international shipping option uses a low cost (hopefully high in value) shipping company instead of normal couriers - so if you do get taxed at your end hopefully it won't be as bad as paying tax on top of 100USD transport costs for shipping a tachometer! (Don't ask me how I know about that one)
