My question is, is buying from the UK bad? I have never bought a complete bike from overseas and am worried about warranty claims but at such a huge reduction im a little torn. Will Wilier honour a warranty locally?
If there is already a thread with all of this being discussed a link would be appreciated!

The cost will be closer to $2000 by the time you pay the Customs Duty, GST and the Customs Processing Fee.

It doesn't look like it.

Its an XL though, so may be larger than you were looking for?
I would make sure you get confirmation of the exact specification of the bike before buying. I bought a BMC from Wiggle a couple of years ago and the description stated XT for the components, the bike arrived with SLX. It was a long drawn out process to get a resolution and boiled down to threatening legal action against them. If its all good with the bike there shouldn't be an issue but be prepared to work hard to sort out anything that goes wrong. If it ever does that is.
