Cabrinha, LF. Most other brands. I would be interested if you can get a better deal from buying factory direct.

Never heard about someone buying directly from factory. I think its almost impossible.

The brands ensures that there are no prices differential across the countries / continent. I am wondering how it is cheaper in China then?

You're asking strange questions. Ask brands and check prices yourself.
