Re: Buy in USA

There are heaps and heaps of old threads on this subject.

Bottom line is that you can buy in the US but will have to leave town soon after buying ( 30 - 90 days ) lest the local tax man get you. It depends where you buy but I'm not going to run through all the rules for you. Each state is different.

Go look for old "buying in USA" threads.

Careful.

Outside USA parts cost an absolute bomb.
