i was told today (by a courier) that you can get around paying import tax/duty on USA products by getting sent to a US base over here and or get it sent as a presant.

can anyone comfirm this?

luck of the draw.... i've never been stung by it, i've just got some injectors on a private purchase, they were listed as goods and still no charge but my mate got some screens from japan and had to pay an other £40 or so....

place your order and hope for the best, but the best advise is to have it declared as a 'gift' with a 'low value'
