why oh why is this country so expensive!! Mad . I have been lokking at a power comander 5, the best price i have foud is about £275.00 ish plus carriage. so looked across the pond (USA) and found this company [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] so why can this company supply me with a power comander 5, plus an auto tune plus a quick shifter plus a K&N filter for £305.00 including carriage all the way from the states! to good to be true me think, but no after speaking with then at length its all new stuff and ready to ship. So job done its all on its way Very Happy . Just makes me sick how much things cost here. Thank god for tinternet.

Does your US-supplied price include import duty and VAT? If not you may get a shock when it comes to delivery time.
