Peninsula imports in Oakville (besides Budd's BMW) sells it in the blue and gold variations. It's where I've been getting it for while.

expensive product??? getting it for cheap??? I too think it's overpriced at double the price they sell for in the US. The dollars are pretty close to par, but the price is doubled? Shipping and taxes/duties aren't that high. They certainly wouldn't double the price. It looks more like retailers are taking advantage of the fact that not too many people in Canada carry it, and are charging a premium on it. All in all, we're getting scammed, but there's not much we can do about it.

Anybody work in management for Canadian Tire? They're now selling Ate brake parts, maybe they can start carrying Super Blue at a reasonable price. Water wetter used to be like $20 at most performance stores, but now CT has started selling it for $12/bottle. Is that the same as getting an expensive product cheap, or an example of "performance" retailers sticking it up the enthusiast's ass???

^^some of us are lucky and live like 30 min away from the border.

But listen guys, you asked about a product, someone offered to hook you up at a reasonable price (25$ is definatly reasonable. I'm not saying you can't find it for less, i'm sure you can, but its definatly reasonable for premium brake fluid). So if you want it tomorrow, you know where to get it, if you want to save some bucks, you know how.

you guys dont wear cute enough underwear to get your panties in a bunch

I get mine at Peninsula, thanks. The only reason the price gets driven up is because of the extra fees associated with shipping/brokerage a single can/bottle.

Let's say it cost you $10 for the Super Blue, $2 in taxes, $10 shipping, and $10 brokerage . That would make the price about $32 total to get it to your door. Fairly close to the price being charged ($25) but still a little too high right?

Let's say there are 12 bottles in a case... that's $120 in fluid, maybe $20 in taxes, $25 shipping, $25 brokerage. Call it $200 to make it easy alright? That works out to a unit price of only $16.66 each to get it to your door.

I'm pretty sure retailers/shops aren't bringing them in by the single can... they're likely making appro $7-10 per bottle. That's a big markup on a $10 item.

Now before you say.. " Well, they have to make a profit don't they?" Do you think the people selling it for $10 in the uS are just giving it away without making any money? No, they're not...

gas money mang!

Listen guys the only reason im debating this is because I feel insulted when you say $25 is a rip and $20 is what im buying it for.

If your gonna sit on ur ass and cry about an expensive product costing too much money then the maybe being an automotive enthusiast is not the right thing for you.
You want premium then expect to pay for what you get.
