    Post can be a bit hit n miss from USA Bob, sometimes less than a week , sometimes more than three. I agree with Laz, by the time you have finished paying import tax plus the extortionate royal mail handling fee and still waiting for it to come its not worth the hassle sometimes. I gave up buying goods from the states too. I only buy from uk suppliers now.

    However you may be lucky and it slips through customs without a second glance...like I said its hit n miss whether you get stung or not with tax and handling.

    Now a few years back around 2007 even paying tax and handling worked out cheaper than uk because around that time we were getting two dollars to the pound. but now we are not so I dont bother

    I ordered loads when I first got my baja from ddm.

    I did get a letter from FedEx saying I had to pay them for the import tax fees but I'd moved and never bothered with it. Heard nothing since lol
