Depends on where you are dude. If you are in the UK I would buy from Mirage personally. They are the most helpful people I have spoken to and really know their products well. The current exchange rate and the postage costs plus the extra hit form customs charges mean that buying form the States isn't a good option anymore. JMO of course.

If you bought one from the uk, the service and help mirage and team drivers give is very helpful. If you have any problems with a us bought kit, it's a long way to take it back

Sorry, i mean in the highly unlikely situation that something is missing from the kit. But this is worst case scenario.
Mirage are very nice to deal with!

Perhaps you would be better asking this question nearer the time when the exchange rates will probably be different. Seven months is a long time to be waiting for a car!!!
