I live in Ireland. BOMs for the Ultimate and expander contain some fairly american looking resistor values: 750K, 9.09K 49.9K, 3.01K etc... Where did my European friends get theirs. Farnell have them, but all US stock (requires additional €20 shipping, bleaurgh!) Same story on ebay. Any pointers?

In the UK, I use Rapid Electronics a lot.

Ebay can help. I use Rapid for bulk buying but end up with RS or Farnell to get the odd values and go for posh resistors such as Welwyn. But dont get too hung up on the odd values. For 49.9k just go for some 50k or 51K, you will be fine. THe link above do 3K which will do for 3.01, 9.1k for 9.09k etc. Get a few and test but you will be fine as this is what the trimmers are for. ALso most pots are 10% tolerance and this will swamp most other resistor variations.
