    Where to buy the Carnetix 2140 in Canada?

    Can anyone suggest a Canadian retailer for the 2140? Shipping from the US is half the price of the PSU.

    Thanks.

    I don't know if there's a Canadian retailer.
    If you'd like, I'll gladly play intermediary. I can have it shipped to me, then ship to you and circumvent the wonderful tarrif process.

    Shoot me a PM.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    I appreciate the offer, but USPS shipping still appears to be ~$40.

    I don't mind paying the sales tax at the border, it's part of buying stuff in Canada.

    What bugs me is that it appears MP3Car has outsourced their order fulfillment to GlobalShopex, who surely can negotiate a better rate with USPS but instead uses guys like UPS who charge an exorbitant "brokerage fee".

    I've spent hundreds in brokerage and shipping fees alone in the several years I've been buying bits for the car PC. And I still don't have a finished car PC.
