Nice, that's a pretty good deal depending on what shipping costs. I've been looking for aftermarket tanks in the states as well. The price is about $188 all in if you're shipping to a US address. The interesting thing to note is that there's 55L tanks and 63L tanks... an extra 8L? That's good for about an extra 100km highway driving!

55L tanks are for the early, dual pump cars (transfer pump and level sender as one unit, later cars had one pump so no room for sender, hence 2nd hole)

I'm guessing the bolt pattern to mount up the tank is probably the same? Or not? If it's the same and I had an early model, I'd probably do a conversion over to the larger tank size. Luckily I already have the larger tank.

Yeah, I went with the larger tank for the racecar because it allows me to have 2 transfer pumps in each side of the tank, pumping into a swirl pot and from there main high pressure pump = no starvation. It bolted right up to my early car. Just had to cut another hole in the rear seat.
