You'll put down a lot more than a boat buck. Those prices aren't in dollars. Check the exchange rate and shipping
. Probably be more like 2 boat bucks by the time you get it over here. This looks like one of those deals where you go into it figuring you're going to save a bunch of money
and when you're done, you're wishing you had ordered the Monitor
I installed a Monitor
for a client in less than a day. Same boat as yours (V40). The product is supported worldwide and the company has been in business under the same ownership
(Hans B) for decades. They know exactly what you need for your installation
because they've supplied vanes for sisterships.
A friend built his own wheel adapter for a Monitor using some automotive pulleys. Came out pretty nice. So there's something you can save a bit of money
on if you're looking for some DIY action.
