"Australian market" - what a rip off?!?!

Does everybody know the difference in prices between Australian Market vs US?
Not even talking about all other things else but here is my story today: i went to a Jeep dealer today to look for "the rear bumper insert with SRT embossed" which has been a quite nice popular mod for us here. The guy at the part department looked through his pc and quoted me a price of $AU 1200. He said its the Australian Market thing and i dont even knoe why it is like that. Can someone tell me its reasonable or a rip off? I think if its the case then somebody out there from US can just buy a bunch and throw them to ebay to make some profit from our Ozzie SRT Freaks....
