how can this be
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:10:33 PM »
ok decided to change my oil & filter tried halfords tried every where for castrol power 1 5w/40 my preferred oil, either they didn't have it or it was £13 per litre and i need 4 litres  :192:, so had a search on the inter web thingie and it came up with the cheapest, 4 litres + oem oil filter £42 + postage of £14, £56 delivered to the door all the way for Germany, so i can't just drive down the road and expect to pay a reasonable price  :230: but i can if i shop in Germany,  :112:

It's the same with Rukka stuff, you an buy it from bikerland.de for a much lower price than in the UK. For example a Rukka Navigator jacket in the uk is £1000, but you can get it from Bikerland.de for 799 euros, which is £695. Even the recommended retail price of 999 euros is £132 less than the UK retail price.
