Thanks for responding on time...and i\'m willing to know the lowest
price of it. As for the payment..i will be paying you via the fastest

a private courier agent would come for the pick up after the payment
have been made ...so no shipping included, so you can now send me your
PayPal email so i can pay in right away and also include your address
in your reply.If you don\'t have a paypal account, you can easily set
up one and setting up a paypal account doesn\'t take more than 5
minutes...just log on to www.paypal.com.au and sign up. its very
easy.I await your reply asap
