^^^ This is true. However on "smaller" items such as taillights shipping is cheap from Japan.
I bought some nice Junyan taillights from Japan for $20. Got it through BidJDM and shipping was $80 so total worked out to $100 shipped to my door. It all depends on what price you paid for the item in Japan.
Grills for example you can buy for like $5 er $10 at bidjdm. Shipping is about the same as the taillights. A wing however is a little more expensive.
