Laws vary from country to country on MAP enforcement.

If we had a government interested in enforcing anti-trust law, it would probably happen here as well...LOL

fyi, The price didn't actually go up since the initial US release. The online retailers that were blowing them out the door at close to their cost were slapped on the hand and told to stop. Hence why the cost went up on places like nexus and stormer.....

I am an Xray guy. But it does make it hard not to look at the other side when other cars from say japan are more than capable and are almost 100 bucks less. or the serpent that i can get for 100 bucks less. Nova rossi engines being 100 bucks more than similar japan made engines.. (dollar to yen hasn't slid that much, when i was in japan in 2002 it was 117:1, now its about 100:1) will we see a market shift to Japanese companies during the euro to dollar crunch?
