    Even if you pay a bit more here in UK at least you can take it back a lot easier if it goes faulty.. That would be my view..
    In reality I don't think there is much in it..

    Bill I ordered a second leisure for my Exsis and got it cheaper on line from eBay, came from Germany though it was a banner to match existing one.paid £152 for it.

    Bill, buy in UK as you have the fall back if they go wrong. I use battery mega store, cheap as chips.

    We got some extra batteries for our new van - they came from Germany, off EBay, saved about £50 each one. Arrived in 2 days
