    America to the uk

    I'm considering buying a head unit from a supplier in America. Never ordered anything from the US before so I'm unsure of how it works. Obviously i have to pay the unit price and shipping, but are there any other costs as the price on the web site is about 100 cheaper than those over here? Anyone have any experience of this?

    allow 17.5% for VAT, not sure about the duty! Customs and Excise used to have a helpline that you could call for advice!

    Also bear in mind that American Head Units don't have RDS, so you won't get station names when you have the radio on [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
