Those of us who use the "North Mexico Peso" as a currency, are watching this closely. The Canadian $ is costing us a lot of our dollar to buy one US$ and the difference for the GBP is still daunting.  It costs us $1.33 to buy a UD$ and our Cdn dollar is worth 61P in England. Not that I wish the Brits any financial dump...it's just that this time we have more affinity with the Brit currency than the US currency. To quo e International Canadian Icons.. Wayne and Garth.... "we are not worthy". 

If it's not Scottish....it's crap! (Cry of the Mini Tartan Owners' Clan)

It was a dip to 1:09 to the US dollar, but just intraday activity. Bears watching.

Thanks for reminding me.  I had a bunch of items in my MS cart that I meant to order last week when I returned from vacation.

As I understand it Mini Spares has had a run on everything as a result of the UK dropping out of the EU at some time. I'm sure they are making the best of it. Steve (CTR)

Where did it dive to?
The last 90 days has shown the dollar to GBP to be at $1.20224 for the low and over the last 30 days the high to be at $1.22837
But I will agree it is a favorable time to buy parts.
