    so as the title says. Ive seen a few on ebay for £140~ with sonus pads.But with the current exchange rate i'd assume i could get it a lot cheaper from the states. anyone know where, and exaclty how much inclusive of postage and taxes if possible) ive tried amazon.com they wont ship. and i cant make head nor tail of autopia's international shipping.

    might be worth a post in the group buy section too mate, pretty sure there'd be some interest in it

    I'm looking to buy a Porter Cable at the moment. Its a bit of a mine field, you need a 110v - 220v transformer as well (I think).

    I'd be up for a group buy Not got a clue how to run one though.

    Hold the phone !

    I've just checked out this site http://http://www.properautocare.com/basporcab74p.html

    for the basic PC on its own with no transformer its coming in at $149.95 - it actually says "on offer at $129.95" but I cant get the check out page to say that.

    And the bonus is that for May its FREE shipping. Not convinced that it will apply to UK deliverys But the Checkout Page has my address, just waiting for CC number, and its still saying $149.95 :thumbsup:

    So by a rough calc that makes it about £80

    I've not ordered one yet but my credit card is twitching. :hubbahubba:

    How did you get a 15% discount code and did you go for a package with pads or just the unit itself?
