do you have a online parcel company called parcels to go. might be possible to arrange with the vendor to stick your postage label on the parcel might be worth a punt,

You mean something like a re-shipping agency? I have one for the US but never looked at anything in the UK. Would there be a mechanical reason why they wouldn't sell to certain regions? Something different between the cars in the UK and Australia that would be different enough to cause issues?

the car's are pretty much the same bmw and Citroen Peugeot share the same engines as in 2006 to present day on petrols and 2006 to march 2010 on diesels, so sometimes ordering or finding parts from psa side is cheaper, like finding a mini engine form breakers that any good will cost well over 1000 but find the psa version which is identical for well under 1000 i've done this trick a lot of times saves a lot of money and just as good,
i have bought stuff before and used parcels to go to collect it from a vendors shop, you might find you could make a few quid by buying a few of them and advertising them on your country's ebay if its hard to get parts there for mini at good prices,, also the pound to dollar exchange rate is more in favour to you than the uk at present due to the bunch of clowns we have destroying the country at the moment,
