Default Cheapest online store for XB808 parts

The title says it all. Where do I find the cheapest parts for the 808? I live in Denmark so I have to take into consideration that customs add 25% import tax to orders from outside EU.

Anyway - let me know what shops carry the full parts range and that are cheap. No matter if it's within EU or outside.

Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't exactly say it is the backyard. There is 1300km or 800 miles between Denmark and Slovakia but both are in Europe and both countries are members of the European Union

Anyway - back on subject. Do you know of any dealers?

Is it really cheaper to order outside the country? Is that a VAT thing? I've only ordered parts from A-main and directly from X-ray for mine (A-main had pretty good prices)

There are several reasons I am looking to order outside Denmark. First of all parts for the XB808 are not readily available here and secondly I have found through years of experience with large scale petrol cars that I can save quite a bit by doing my shopping in Germany, Hong Kong and US.

This is my reason for asking you guys here.

There's an online shop in Sweden that I *think* has Xray parts. I can't remember the website, but that would be pretty convenient for you. Do you get charged import tax on orders from England?

Parted out kits from eBay is your best bet, save up to 50% or more most of the time, some sellers on eBay will ship worldwide.
