[Best Buy] [marketplace] Xiaomi Mi M365 electric scooter - $549.88

Just came back from Central Europe where electric scooters are all over the place, so I've been eyeing the M365 for a while now, and this seems like a pretty good price for one of the more well known scooters.

From time to time it goes on sale in the US for $350 USD; currently available for $379 at Walmart.com & Amazon.com, So factoring in conversion, shipping/forwarding, taxes, and most importantly your time, this seems to be a pretty good deal.

The issue I have with the Xiaomi scooter is that the wheels wears out quickly.

Agreed, I'm holding out for an Xiaomi scooter with real tires.

He most likely didn’t declare it at the border, but it’s ok they will get him next time.

it was $330USD with free shipping, $5 at the border warehouse, that converts to $445 CAD

I stayed down there for a couple days so i had it under my person exemption so i didn't pay tax, but even if i did that's only $22 GST, don't know what the duty would be, but i'd still be around $467 before duty

I actually bought this a couple weeks ago from the same seller. It comes with a spare set of tires. So if it does wear out you have those for replacement.

I've been riding it daily for about a week and a half now and it's been great!

A few things to note:
-it has developed a really loud squeak coming from the hinge where the handle folds down. I've ordered a set of rubber vibration dampers which is supposed to fix the problem, but until those get delivered I've been sticking a piece of paper there, which works for now.

-the brakes are a bit loose when they get delivered. There are videos on YouTube that show you how to tighten them up and it makes a huge distance on the stopping distance.

-for me, between placing the order and receiving the package was just over 48 hours.

I've brought one from the same seller, the Scooter wouldn't turn on after a week. Luckily I got a full refund. I really enjoyed this scooter but reliability seems to be an issue. Look up M365 Facebook group and many people post their issues on a daily basis. By the way the PRO version was also available.

I declared mine at the border along with few other things and no customs / tax was charged for the scooter. I didn't ask why, I was just happy that I don't have to pay extra.
