    Just be careful with the FM tuner on non-UK models. We have a different stepping between our frequencies apparently and US FM tuners won't pick up all the stations in the UK.

    Also watch for import duty of course should you be unlucky enough for customs to spot it.

    i am aware of the import duty though, i think it would still be cheaper than buying it in this country, im just worried about the tuner

    you can by external freq shifters but include that in your price and your looking along similar lines

    if you know someone going to the states get them to bring one back for you - your allowed upto £340 i think
