UK Camaro parts/ upgrades

I very recently bought my first Camaro (2011 SS auto), and duly joined your forum yesterday in the hope that I could pick up some tips and advice on looking after my most prized possession.

Whilst I'm loving my new motor, I'm a big fan of tweeking and tinkering both performance and looks, and I would really appreciate some advice on which companies to deal with in the UK (if any), or indeed any advice on which US companies can easily import parts (and at what cost) that are appropriate for my european spec model.

Any help, advice and tips would be massively appreciated, as I can see some superbly personalised examples already on show in some other threads.

Many thanks

I started with upgrading my fe3 suspension sways to the fe5 sway bars, also had endlinks and rear lower control arms upgraded. A little problem was the fact that the right front endlink was the same like my left endlink, it was a packing mistake(I brought all the parts from US and had them shipped it was complicated to send the incorect part back). So I called my local dealer for getting the right one and he asked 3x the price that I have paid in US plus VAT.
So I suggest you find a way of importing your parts cheap. I for example buy from the big name shops, jegs,amazon etc. and have a freight forwarder ship them to me.
If you read the threads around here you will easily see what mods are easy and which ones require more skill etc. but in the end one thing matters you must get the parts cheap!
Good luck!!!
