There's a guy on kijiji in Calgary selling one but he wants 550 for it lol I paid half that. That being said there are lots in the marketplace that even after exchange, it'll still be under 400.

I get all my parts off of Mike@N54tuning, he's based in Ontario so you would get free shipping, and avoid any border fees. I'm not a fan of used parts, especially ones that aren't local, just for liability reasons, so when I buy new, its from Mike.

His site also shows in Canadian prices if you select that, makes browsing pretty easy.

haven't heard much about mhd but I think you need an android ? also lot of people I know running jb4 G5 without complaints and I also like the idea of gauge features , 2step ect , plus I plan to do a pro tune near future with Cobb

You do need an Android device but there are some significant advantages to MHD. I was in your position not long ago. I've had my car for over 2 years and was planning pretty much from day 1 to go either JB4 or Cobb after the warranty expired, but when it came time to buy I stumbled across MHD on the forum and realized pretty quickly that its the best offering currently. Lots of people have gone from JB4 to MHD and say drivability is much improved, and you can do custom tunes with Wedge/Buraq as well.

You lose some of the gimmicky stuff like gauge sweeps etc. but I think the tradeoff is worth it. It's your call, but I would suggest reading through the MHD discussion thread before you buy so you can make an informed decision.

Even Mike@N54Tuning mentioned the other day that MHD is the way to go now and he's a JB4 vendor.
