You not only need to take care about the exchange rate, but also about  
value added tax and some other mystic issues.
You'll see that different gear has different prices for different nations  
at e.g. Thomann, some gear is less and other more expensive fore each  
country, so it's not only the tax and exchange.

Bargain! If the they are not willing, go to another dealer.
