Usually 2-3 days plus customs, and maybe another 2-3 days depending on the carrier and if it’s a Friday when it lands. I’ve been tracking my bit of Japanese exotica for the past week and waiting for customs clearance, not like an impatient parent at all 😂
I remember reading an article in superbike magazine about oils in the uk some years back and basically they said most of the oils sold in the uk are manufactured and refined in the same place, by the same company that owns or trades under the Fuchs Silkoline banner.

@calum I'm sure there's some to be had in the EU if you could find a good example and import it back into the UK. I'm not sure what the import duties are like now since brexit, but it would be well worth the hassle if it could be done. i bet it would be a beast on the road for-sure. 🏍 💨
