A friend of mine just brought me a cap back from Manchester Harley that was marked £20 ($40). Yikes! Do you guys pay double US price for everything, or just Harley stuff?

A pc will run in the 360 range and a dyno tune is approx 300 on avg and labor to install a pc should be no more than 1 hr so if you figure what that cost here 740 and shipping on that PC to UK you are paying more but then again it is not like you are local shipping for the products.

They pay double for everything and if they try to buy out of country they get slapped with obscene taxes (45% and up)

I tried to get some guys in the UK to stop buying parts for their GTR's locally because of the rediculous prices but after all the taxes they pay on imported parts.... it really wasnt worth it.

I think its called VAT... Dont know what it stands for. Very Assinine Tax maybe? haha! omg that was weak...

VAT=Value Added Tax....

Your definition is probably more accurate, though.
