Does anyone know where I can get a pair of these from in the UK ? Lots of US suppliers but $$$ and then import £££ tried all the usual places and can't find any :(

You might want to check with your insurance company first.

If you think these cost $$$ to buy, plus £££ import, then you're just going to love what they do to your premium.

It's no coincidence that no one bothers to stock these in the UK.

Not sure yet, some serious time of photoshop will be required. No idea on the weigh saving it's more of an anti rust mod than anything.
