buying from US - is it worth it? ie save 187 on a new JL 1/1000 Slash AMP

Ok what are the disadvantages of buying direct from US

ie found this on ebay
NEW JL AUDIO 1000/1 SLASH SERIES MONO CAR AMPLIFIER AMP $584 + $91 post + £30 VAT/Customs/import tax etc (est?) = £368 inc post inc del

NEW JL AUDIO 1000/1 SLASH SERIES MONO CAR AMPLIFIER AMP - (eBay item 270177284377 end time Oct-26-07 20:54:18 PDT)

seller :audiosavings

positives 99.4% 76818 feedbacks.

Seems reliable enough?

UK price £555 (Ex Demo)
http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro...s_id/4250.html

Potential saving: £187 (approx)

PROS:
Cheap price
New Item

NEGS
UK warranty/repair Issues?

I could go down this route for my entire build, not decided yet, but want 2 comps, 2 amps, 1 bass, 3sixty.2

Would you do it for a large enough cash saving or would u just pay the extra and buy it local?

Has anyone done this and wants to reccomend any good US based dealers?

Thanks

Warranty or any other problems.

I expect you need to pay UK VAT when you import it.
