Mega boner alert!!!!!

I was looking at protons site (which btw is so much better than the uk proton site!) and it looks like you might be able to buy the kit seperatley or as a package. Not sure weather or not they would allow a body kit to be shipped to the uk which is a bit of a shame as I'm strongly considering a neo when I have some more disposable income

Yes. were we to have an Import/Export guy - who you would trust to take the dog to the corner shop, for a loaf and bring back the change....lol - then all things are possible.

With tax and customs, 100% trustworthy 3rd party with your cash :shock: , you could pull it off...

If you made it 2 or 3sets you might get a price break :smt038

Devil always in the detail..... oh! and did I mention trusting someone with yrr cash... :-"

Mc Sav - if you don't trust you don't get ;)

I suppose I was lucky with my mini group import , but I was dealing with a fellow Proton owner who was good enough to help us out.

Nick , I have tried quite a few times to get R3 to come on here without much luck at the moment. :( Problem is that the UK is too small a market for them to make it worthwhile. :(

I was more concerned that proton might be worried about someone in the uk just making a mould for them.

Need to go out there really and purchase them in person. I would love to do a bulkm buy but I'm not sure I would get them sold any time soon as I can see there being much demand for them

Hobbit looked into POC being a UK dealer , but they wanted us to spend 7 grand which is way too much.

I was hoping to get R3 to come on and at least post information , but no luck yet.
