Seriously though - be carefull - they really have clamped down a lot lately on this sort of thing - chances are YOU will have to pay. I have also noticed freight costs have gone up lots as well.
Try places like Cactus and haggle like hell - couldn't find my Raymarine stuff cheaper ANYWHERE and there is nobody who tries harder for a bargain - the USA was NO cheaper!!!
Same with my Digi Camera - just bought a Pentax Optio WP - paid £175 in UK - cheapest I could find in the USA was $255 = £138 + VAT and import duty = £166 - £10 cheaper NOT counting postage which will be a hell of a lot more than that!!!
Just bought an inverter - 2000W model - cheapest i could find were sellers on ebay from Hong Kong etc - trouble is they now charge £50 shipping!!!
