    They used to have a store at arielmotor.co.uk but you could never order with a US address when I tried it.

    Yup. And when I emailed / phoned TMI to have them order some of those goodies for me, they said they'd look into it and get back to me.

    Perhaps things are different now that TMI has added some more people.

    Calling works the best.(during business hrs) Never has failed me. I'll bet they're still looking into it....

    I'll bet you could get a coat.. if you bought a new car...

    I actually talked to Mark about it, several times.

    Probably not, after I talked to their new guy for over an hour. He was calling all the Brammo owners, asking "what do I need to do to get you into a new Atom today". He was quite nice and I probably gave him a lot to think about...

    Is that why they called? I got a voicemail too, called back and left a message but they never called back. Like I need another one.. I'll leave that record to Mark.

    The call was "hey Im new here at TMI, checking with our existing owner base to see if they need anything" I didnt get any sales pitch. It was great to hear from them.

    TMI really is the best thing that could have happened to the Atom in the USA. What if TMI had not picked up the ball after brammo drop punted it into the toilet?

    Well, I was talking to Simon about buying up all of Brammo's parts and tooling...

    Seriously, I agree with you. But they're focused (as they should be) on selling cars. If they don't want to sell clothing and other accessories, they should tell Ariel UK that it is OK to sell to US customers. Who exactly is Ariel protecting if TMI has no interest in selling these things? The Chinese counterfeiters?
