SteveG Posted September 15, 2006 Share Posted September 15, 2006 I was looking yesterday at prices and specs of Viair onboard compressors. The plan was to buy in US and bring back as they are about half the price there as here. I also wanted a tank and fittings and as tanks are a bit bulky I thought I'd check price in UK to see how much they were and if not too high I would buy the tank in UK. So I looked on Matt Savage and while looking at tanks also looked at compressors and kits (mainly to see how much could be save so I could feel smug ) - it was then that I noticed that the kit I would want was a lot less in comparison to the prices of the other two lower spec kits and only about 30 pounds more than I could buy from US. So I didn't mess around and clicked buy etc etc and half expected an e-mail saying that they had made an error and price was wrong. I ordered one of these..

Only to receive an email about 2 hours later that order had been shipped! Unlike BishBosh, I didn't need it next day but it has just arrived - typical couriers and yes it's all there and correct - result! So if anyone was thinking of buying one soon I'd have a look on matt savage's site. Now I get fun of fitting it. Steve Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
