You guys might love this one.  ECS' normal price is $259.  
We had a huge number of people in the group purchase, so we 
achieved the highest discount offer of 23%, making the price 
like $199.43 plus shipping (to me) of $14.04.

Well, I just checked through Samco website, to their 
distributors pages, which led me to  
I thought they had a great price at $205.25, without any 
type of group purchase.

Then I thought I'd check the other distributor, .  
I was suprised to find them listing them for $145!  I 
emailed them to ask if the website listing 4 hoses for the 
200q20v was a mistake because I understood there only to be 
two hoses, and if the price was a mistake.

There reply confirming that it's a two-piece kit is below.  
That really seems like a great price, although they didn't 
confirm in it in the email.

I'll copy the 200q20v list.
