Default What low cost stuff from USA?

Hi guys!!

My BIL is comming from US (with a bit less luguage) and I want to utilise this oppurtunity to get some phoren maal.

I currently own a 2003 Indica V2 DLS and a suzuki zeus.
my car:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indiancarpicture-938.html

I would like to know some low cost accessories or gadgets or some DIY books which I can get from USA. I dont wanna burden my BIL with the costs. So please suggest the items between $ 10 to $ 50. (though the cumulative of all would be more ) . I remember seeing some items in few threads which can be bought in USA but I could not trace them. Please help me find them if possible and please do suggest me something.

raj.

Gtech is useless unless you are a tuner. Ask for chocolates or something.

Cool

gtech costs between 200 to 300 usd.

Heres a comparison between the two models Gtech Pro RR and SS Comparison

But I am not sure, where you can get it - tried fry's and home depot so far

Anything else that can be picked up from US. I am in vegas for 2 weeks

Cheers,
j

get radar detector (cobra -brand name) from Walmart, app $ 40; fix-a-flat for $ 1.07 from Dollar Tree; get Car Shine (claiming once a year car polish) for $ 7 (walmart); get tyre shiner from Dollar Tree for $ 1.07; get "italica" champagne glasses (very nice) from Kmart for $ 37 (may be you need to wait for early bird sale); get a green card for me (priceless).

If you are insterested in a carputer, i think most of the stuff is quite freely available there. Check the threads by abhi & ankur in the ICE section.

kkr2k2: On a serious note, Why not something to improve your ICE? Have heard such things are cheaper there.
