Default Import duty on JB4 - 12-13-2013, 02:21 PM

Hi,
Newbie here so please go gentle. I've just ordered a JB4 for my 335i and I'm happily watching it via tracking go from Goleta California to Los Angeles being airmailed to me. I have not thought about import duties though so am I going to hammered on these when it hits the UK?
Thanks.

Hi and welcome, it's not so much the import duty tax the gets you, it's the handling charge that takes the pee, the sender has already paid a fee for the delivery and you will have to pay a handling fee, anything to get a few extra ....

When you install the Jb4 you will be grinning from ear to ear, enjoy and drive with caution on our wet and slippery roads

I have just purchased the BT cable from Terry for 179 dollars and when I collected from parcel force I payed a total of 37.28 tax & handling fee. Not the end of the world but just a pain.
