    Believe you me, I've been looking at items as a fellow Canadian also, and the prices are stupid. Almost turns you off of some items.

    That's why I buy from China with free shipping. I shopped for a male to female USB extension in Canada - $8.99 plus tax (made in China). Got it directly from China for .99 cents and free shipping.

    The Amazon.ca with prime can work out but you really got to watch the prices and stuff.

    The LEDs are all from China on Amazon. Recently got 6 led pods for $100. Princess auto sells the same one for $40 each.

    Sold it.
    It's a pile of cash now.
    Hmmm, I was able to get Amazon.com to ship me that for $11 USD for a total cost of about $39 CAD. I didn't place the order, but it looks like your US link would allow you to buy it for that price. Unless I'm missing something.

    I'll check that out again. Thanks!

    ---------------------------------------------------

    Edit: You're right. I didn't know that the .com site had international shipping options... then why pumped up prices on .ca ??? :notsure:

    Do you have an upgraded stereo ? I just went through this when I installed my stereo and actually purchased that exact terminal with the voltage guage .
    It dont fit unless you do the big 3 upgrade . If you still have the factory wiring harness going to your battery , you are going to have to lengthen your harness to make that critter fit properly .
    Im another one who gets slaughtered when ordering parts living in the middle of nowhere Ontario
    With this said , go spend some more of your hard earned cash https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/electrical-system-upgrade-groupbuy-big-3-plus-closed.391316/

    I found that if you look at all the vendors the same part could be ridiculously cheaper being sold by someone else. For shits and giggles I was looking at audio gear last weekend and found on bit I liked...it was $1700 from one vendor and $649!!!! from another. I think they throw decoys just to catch idiots. on the upside, I got free shipping at $1700. :D:D

    Amazon.ca is a clearing house for getting unsold US items. Lower quality or old stock. Next step they sell in the 3rd world. Hate being treated like a sucker.

    Helpful tip, google "Amazon International" and then proceed to type what you're searching for into the search box. It will only show you items that qualify for international shipping.

    If you want even cheaper, I bought one of these very tiny ones http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Mini-Red-LED...337814?hash=item25acb51256:g:9FYAAOSwLVZV5FuY and stuck it in the ashtray, though you could put it anywhere. They have them on Amazon for more like 9$. I liked the red because it isnt blinding bright at night, but you can also get blue green ect. They have a nice little adjustment on the back so that you can calibrate them with a volt meter so they are accurate. You can pretty much put these anywhere with some 3m tape, they are so light and tiny.

    Amazon.ca is generally inferior to .com

    BUT I always check the prices on both before ordering. From time to time there are items on the .ca site that are a fair bit cheaper once you factor in shipping and exchange.
