New Sanden A/C Compressor - How much?

Looks like the clutch has gone on my a/c unit.
(Only got myself to blame - I never used it enough)

I might as well by a complete new compressor.
(The family want us to go to France again this summer)

For a 1998 series 2 CT Activa - I think i'm looking for a:-

Sanden SD7V16 R134a a/c compressor

There seems to be loads of these new old stock units about, but the cheapest I can find one for is £200 plus VAT.

Anyone know where I might beat that price?

The clutch not kicking in may have causes like low gas pressure, and the internal fan not spinning.
The clutch must drive the compressor before the fault can be assessed further.
