    Ebay Murci Builder $49K

    Anyones thoughts as to whether or not these guys are legit or not?

    I checked out one of their recent auctions of a replica murci to some guy on ebay for $55K but to my speculation that murci is the real deal and not a rep. What are your thoughts on this? I am always being skeptical about this particular thing especially dealing with that kind of money, but it seems like they made a fake auction and had one of their own guys "buy it now" just to give them some kind of praise and creditibility to their own scam... I dont know... am I being too cautious here?

    Hello, even if it was legit it would cost a bit of money to import!! This is our first post on here and we are going to build the Murci's in the UK and sell them on. We already own a automotive company (Kudos Automotive Ltd and Kudos Autostyling Ltd) so everything is set with regards to production and build, just found a decent builder so we can utilise this venture almost straight away.

    However, i am still trying to bring our bmw pats business to a stage where it can be self run without direct management from me before we start the lambo build side of things (4 weeks hopefully!)

    Anyway, we can build a Murci for about 28,000 - 30,000 we have estimated as our current business can absorb most of the overheads

    If you were to import that car from USA than you need to add VAT to bring total to about 29,000 and then you would need to add 10% duty (a further 2900) so a new total of about 32,000. You then need to spend 3000 to ship it over (this will include uk registration and MOT) but if major exhaust work etc needs to be carried out to meet UK requirements you have to pay extra!! etc so your looking at a min of 35,000

    You will find the US guys will also charge you an extra $5000 usd to make it RHD so your looking at 35,000 - 38000 (dependant on whether they charge for RHD) for an imported replica!

    And before you say it! yes you can say the car is valued at 15000 to reduce the VAT and duty but then you will have try to get the builders to provide iffy receipts and even if they did you run the risk of it being damaged in transit!! and losing heavily!

    Hello all!

    Yes we moved to a new unit and BT swore it would be a nice easy change over but surprise surprise we lost our phone systems and internet for 2 weeks! good old BT!!

    Our number is 01788 567567

    www.kudosauto.com is now up and will actually incorporate the kit car section on that soon as the dedicated kit car website is now 2 months off apparently!

    Ref the new 540i E39 then congrats! I also have a e39 540i!! If you go to both www.kudosbmw.co.uk and www.kudosauto.com and let me know if anything catches your eye then I can sort you out

    If you want my prefered opinion on mods (without going over the top!!) then drop me an email at simon@kudosbmw.co.uk and can send you photos etc

    www.kudosbmw.co.uk has before and after photos of a e39 540i which had the M5 conversion (including the exhaust) i think its under the e39 specialist tab

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Now, my E39 is in USA and not UK, how do you plan to help me in that ?
    I am from the UK though, just studying in America as my parents live here.

    Oh I see, Well we can send the parts but postage is quite extreme! on the m5 bumper kit, best thing to do is buy the M5 kit over there and get the smaller items like Angel eyes (which are clear cornered and not amber like the USA) from the uk

    if you need help please feel free to email me as best to keep this discussion thread based onn kit cars! However i do think you should check price comparisons in USA first.
