    Phatnoise/US Import tax?

    I can't seem to find any phatnoise box's on the ebay.co.uk. I can only find them on ebay.com.
    Has anyone bought one from the US and if so have you been charged for import tax?

    It's my bday coming up soon so i think i will treat myself to on of these.
    I have a 2001 facelift A3 - will one of these be ok in my car?

    Make sure you contact the vendor first, because when I looked into buying PhatNoise from the States, one Audi/VW dealer wouldn't ship to the UK at all.

    what i heard is that if that if the parcel if marked " WARRANTY RETURN" then you will not pay custom charges as custom charges would have been paid already. however i dont think you find anyone to do this, too risky not worth it i dont think. just thought id mention it.

    Yeh the other option is to ensure they put the value of the item as very low ( though if it goes missing you are screwed).
    Any spelling/ grammatical errors are there purely to annoy!
