Exchange Rate

Guys and Gals,

I was just on emoto drooling over the usual parts i would love to buy but thought we out of my range b/c of the exchange rate for the pound. I then procceded to do what i always do and use my currency calculator to figure out just how much money was keeping me from my parts, and unless my calulator is wrong, it appears that there is no real difference between US and british dollars. Is my calculator wrong, or is this really the case?

Thanks

I though it was bad back when it was 1.5 to 1 Japan isn't much better. The dollar sucks all around the world outside of 3rd world countries.

Nope. There's a difference. For example, BREMBO Forged Aluminium 17" Front and Rear wheels = 1,975.95 GBP:

United Kingdom Pounds
1 GBP = 2.04057 USD

United States Dollars
1 USD = 0.490059 GBP
