This is Amazon's US site. It is not available in the UK. This should be expired.
#2
But they ship to the UK, like Deal Extreme - unless someone knows that these goods are excluded from UK shipping?
#3
They do ship to the UK but for instance with this item the cost is:

Product: £77.22
Shipping & Handling: £8.07
Import Fees Deposit: £17.07
Total: £102.38

AND this also does not take into account on whether you pay any extra to UK customs for tax as tax is not applied to this purchase by Amazon.

So although you can order from Amazon US (DVD's are a safe bet to remain the same price but remember the extra for delivery) higher price products can end up costing more than their face value.

I don't want to put you off posting though. Keep up the good work :-)

thanks for the encouragement. I was hoping someone knew where in the UK to get this item - I've tried on the Velocity website but it only shows US retailers. Shame, as it looks like a decent piece of kit
