Who did you get it from and did you get stung with import charges :bigups :waxing:

Got it here (autopia-carcare.com) of course, no import duty for me.

I got mine from here 18 months ago now. Good price as the pound was even stonger against the dollar then than now. Duty from memory was around Â30 and step down transformer Â60-ish.

I`d recommend autopia for purchase - first rate customer service and swift delivery (4 days in my case)

I`d recommend autopia for purchase - first rate customer service and swift delivery (4 days in my case)I also ordered from Autopia Carcare and would echo Andy`s comments, the delivery was incredibly quick and I also managed to avoid any additional charges. Plus I wanted to support the forums in some way, so another reason for me to order from Autopia.

I got mine a few years ago from Costaltools - no duty

got mine from Autopia - arrived in 5 days and no additional duty. I think it worked out at Â130 with the Sonus DAS kit. You need the 110v transformer, a UK spec 110V plug and an extension lead.

One tip - if you get one - get extra pads too. You will want them after a little bit and they are like rocking horse poo to get hold of.

I ordered mine from Autopia too, ordered a good few pads as well, plus lots off other bits I needed too to make it worth while. I also went down the screwfix style 110V transformer and plug route.

I ordered mine from Autopia about the same time as Rich - came through quickly, with parcel tracking each stage of the way.

I ended up ordering some more pads from Autopia about a week later - it`s like m/f you can`t have too many! :D
