After 10 years on Ribnet, I've just used the "Block/ignore" function for the first time.

Apologies folks, I was not clear on how annoying this would be, thinking that it was actually helpful.

I was just made aware that the latest posts section is full of Shark posts, which is obviously not great.

I also suppose many of the same people are on the many threads to which we posted so a lot of email notifications would be sent.

Please take this as my sincere apology, it will not happen again.

Cheers,
Dan.

I've been in touch with the company and in their defence, they didn't appreciate the post load would be so overwhelming to regular members.

The apology has been made in good faith and they were already a Trade supporter of the forum - I really appreciate a voluntary payment. Too often manufacturers and resellers are devious and promote their products by stealth and I have to chase them up for the readies.

We have asked a lot of questions about suspension seating over the years and for my part, I think it's nice to have another manufacturer on here to quiz. If the kit catches on and works it has to benefit us all as ribbers.

I know their prices as I spoke to Dan before buying scotseats, whilst suspension seats are not cheap they are worth an email if in the market for seats.

Substantially cheaper than one of the big players is all I will say......but you are still spending serious money Needless to say.

The price for 2 seats would be 5934 NZD which is approximately 3329 Pounds currently.
The shipping price to get them to you would be 145 Pounds per seat.

Here is a bit of info about the import code that hopefully saves someone some time.

From www.trade-tariff.service.gov.uk


"The commodity code for importing is 9401800000.

Goods are subject to VAT standard rate and VAT reduced rate 5%, please see related guidance as to when zero VAT applies.

Importing from outside the EU is subject to a third country duty of 0.00 % unless subject to other measures.

Import measures and restrictions for specific countries can be found under the import tab."


Cheers,
Dan.
