Having just taken delivery of a T9 (30310) with DCC fitted, I was surprised to see the same model, without DCC, being advertised at a higher price by the same retailer. I'd estimate about a 11% uplift in a week.

Is this a sign of our weaker currency, or have costs increased significantly in China ?

Have any others noted this from other suppliers yet ?

Hi & welcome to MRF.

Bearing in mind the increasing costs of raw materials & labour it's probably not a bad increase, especially with the weakness of the pound.

Yes I was told by retailer at end November that HST (non DCC fitted) had gone up from £136 to £148 rrp. So there is a price increase in effect.
