    Default Difference between Baslac clear and Norbin clear (both BASF paint)

    Hi everybody. My friend and I spent the day doing research and getting quotes to respray my Mercedes properly and we had an eye opening experience and learned it would cost Aud$15,000. Therefore I have been recommended finishing fixing this car in my own garage. I have a question which is - is there any difference in quality and result in the 'Baslac clear' and 'Norbin clear'? Both are made by the German manufacture BASF so I am wondering if there is any quality difference or even any difference in the forumlation. The Baslac is significantly more expensive where I live in Australia.

    The best clear that BASF makes (Glasurit) costs around $400USD a gallon and in most cases you can judge the quality of any paint by the price because it's a very competitive market. When we paint high end cars we always use then best materials.

    G'day Len. Yes, exactly what I would have thought! Can you please clear up for us the reason why the Chinese websites are selling these German products so inexpensively. 5l of Glazerit for AU$108. Is it because we in Australia or America need to pay so much import fee's or is it old stock or is it counterfiet? If you or anyone knows how the price differs about 5-6X from Australian prices could you please let me know! Thanks for the knowledge!

    That's humorous. I went to your link and clicked on an item then when I tried to go to my cart it told me that the page was not working. I'd probably stay away from that site because you may not get what you pay for.

    Yes agreed. The prices in European stores are significantly lower. My bet is it's due to the import taxes and shipping costs. Which is clearly understandable
