Coil Spring Compressor- Best price??

I have done a complete search of the forum and I am looking for a coil spring compressor to rebuild my 1982 300TD and to have for my 1988 560SL. I know that the research leds me to want a Sir tool unit M0070 or a Hazet unit or a Klann unit.
My question is price.

As a Captain for American Airlines ( I fly domestic only). Quite a few of my friends fly to Europe. They have offered to pick up a unit for me.
For those in England. How much is the Sir tool M0070 locally?
For those of you in Germany how much is the Hazet unit, or for that matter the Mercedes unit.

The Sir tool here in the US is $600 US. That really makes purchasing the unit difficult to take. The rental from Performance Products is easier to swallow. but I do like to have my own tools.

I would be using the tool on my 1982 300TD (w123)
and my 1988 560Sl (w107)

any help you could give me would be appreciated.
