Even so.. if you can't buy from the UK, you have to be able to buy it somewhere, don't you?
I don't know what MAP prices are for Tiagara/105 groups, but I guarantee if you go to your LBS and compare the cost of upgrading the transmission on your Tiagra/105 level bike at MAP prices vs. the net cost of selling your current bike and getting a new complete bike at that level, the new complete bike will be more cost-effective.
