Been after one of these for ages and have finally tracked them down.

Can anyone tell me what this is likely to cost me in £?
Has anyone had to pay import taxes or similar to receive such a product fro DX befor?

Also does anyone else have one of these and are they as cool as they look?

less than £33

[url]www.xe.com[/url] says £31.33 which takes you over the import limit for avoiding tax, however ive had quite a few items over the £18 threshold and not been stung and ive not heard of others being nabbed for it either (watch it now ive said that my incoming delivery will get nabbed). Ive also had stuff that wouldnt get past customs full stop from DX as its illegal in this country ie mobile phone jammers, butterfly knives and a lighter with a built in switchblade all fall into that catergory.

They are good at marking items down on the label.

Why would you want to bring those into this country.

I use google. Its actually a couple quid less than £33 but because paypal always have out of date exchange rates you will probably be charged a little more than what it actually converts to.

If you want to use google just search for it. eg. 50usd in gbp

PayPal £32.25 GBP

PayPal Conversion Rate as of 3 Nov. 2008: 1 British Pound = 1.56680 US Dollars



Damn it dont seem five minutes since i was getting 1 British Pound = 1.98 US Dollars )

dealxtreme is getting expensive
