And they have outrageous charges for shipping outside Germany, over 
€45 for Spain for example (funny how they list Lesotho on their pull-down
menus, I suspect they mean Latvia).

Right now I'm using multi-cb:

The minimal drill size is 0.2mm, and standard (no surcharge) design 
rules are 125/125µ (5/5mil) for four layers HAL finish and 100/100µ 
(4/4mil) for 6+ layers (ENIG). Same example costs €59+S&H+VAT, but
a second board is only €10 (+VAT) more.

6 layer board of same size is €98+VAT+S&H, (€116 for 2 boards) with 
100/100µ rule, it's what I've used most in the last years.

They also offer higher layer count but I have never used them, and I
don't think I would use them without blind or buries vias:

- 8 layer is €157 (€166 for Qty 2), never used.

- 10 layer jumps to €519, but the second one is free! And even 10 will
  "only" be €546.

Unfortunately they only sell to business. For private designs, 
I'm considering Eurocircuits.

And no, I have no interest in them, I'm only a satisfied customer and we
try to place several orders together here to minimize impact of S&H to
Spain (<€30 in all cases).

For now I've never done more than 6 layers and never really had
a real need for blind or buried vias. I suspect that it would be 
different starting from 8 layers.
