Just a follow up on this one.  Thank you for the links.

Now as you know I run my own business, so appreciate whats involved in doing so, and we are here to make a profit, not run a charity.

So I contacted one of the suggested person from the links, I wanted front and rear bulbs, dash, and steering bulbs, Price for 17 bulbs $47 including post.

Thought nothing of it, my father was here from the UK, he's a Electrical engineer and he said that seemed expensive, I called a place he suggested in the UK, same amount delivered by air for $22.  Now I am a firm believer that we cant compare Australia prices with the UK, you just cant we have higher wages etc, everything is relevant, and as such we would need to make a higher profit than the UK.  But I could buy these sell them on with my same margin and still sell them cheaper than what I could buy here, and the people in the UK, have already made there profit.

That is clearly greed.
