Wanted: Extra 330LX

I found my Christen Eagle II a few months ago through the British Aerobatics website so wanted to see if anyone in the UK is considering selling a Extra 330LX.

I have located two, one in Europe and one in the USA, but the transactions are complicated and I would prefer a UK based aircraft. I understand this is a long shot and specification is not important, but relatively low time preferred.
