Anyone still buying mods from the states with the dollar so crappy?

I was so ready to get like 5 mods before the dollar just went down the drain..... now its like 0.77..... how am I ever going to get any mods without feeling like I am getting ripped off...? Now I have to put everything on hold...

Wow! That's crazy. I usually didn't do my annual trip to Mt Tremblant (le Circuit Tremblant) this year, because with a 1: exchange rate, it was going to be ridiculous to go up there. You're back down to 77cents? Weird.

Just looked and the US dollar is actually recouping some off the bleeding against the Euro as well.

Ya.. Last long weekend I was up at Boston and wow when I got back and tried to pay my cc it was pretty upsetting.. I bought a winter coat for $326.00 USD and ended up paying $400.00 in CDN...

Its so hard to see all these mods available and not be able to purchase them.. like the RR intake with stage 2 and the JB3 PNP becoming in stock again.. >.< horrible..

I am glad I already got my winters. It sure is hurting. On a good note, anyone looking to buy an 09 1, will now not be thinking about getting a US 1, our prices are actually ok now.

$0.77 !?!?!?

I was bitching at the $0.86 rate when I got my CC bill from the Tirerack order.

$1500 USD quickly becomes $1950 CAD when the rates look like that!
