After discussing it with my wife, she told me to just buy one full option in Germany for 2500$. She told me that I never spend money on anything or go to the pub, so I should stop waffling about and just buy it and have fun.
    By time it was all said and done, I wish I had just bought mine. Fair warning about the KMG guys though, not so good on the customer service end & it was over something really small that they owed me ($10 bolt), but didn't send. I'm really put out by Beaumont Metal Works, but that was just my experience.

    I made my "grinder in a box", but ordered several attachments from BMW.

    I tried working with BMW to see if there was some way they would be willing to ship to me, since they had shipped international in the past according to some posts I found on the internet.

    They sent me a 1 line answer 'we don't sell international'.
    That's it. No 'hello Bruno', no 'unfortunately, we...', no nothing. Just a very terse 'get bent' type email. That, along with the refusal to sell international despite a lot of interest from many countries, makes me wonder what kind of guy is sitting at the helm there.

    Exactly the same type of experience I had.
