I ordered this from Amazon.ca on Sunday, received a shipping notice on Monday and now I've been told that it will be delivered via UPS today.
And I chose the cheapest delivery option.
Crazy :p

Very reasonable price there all things considered. Mine only cost me £3 less and that's with someone bringing it over from the states personally lol

Erm like 3 - 6 months apparently. Grab it from Amazon.ca it's like 25quid and should be tax free

Amazon.ca have always done this but you've missed the golden years which ended about 3 years ago when they cottoned on to the fact that charging around £4 for postage was a bit cheap.
So the whole thing went tits up when they increased the charges so that the majority of titles got pushed over the customs limit.
I ordered some titles where the postage must have cost them more than the disc itself.

Thanks to Geoff D for highlighting this one. Ordered 24 hours ago and shipping now.

So no import duties due from Amazon.ca as long as the disc is under the £18 threshold , i thought they included delivery costs.

Just checked, also and now showing ships in 1-2 months

Just saw some screencaps and it looks phenomenal. More than happy to pay the £25 from Amazon.ca

£15 limit.
Import duty limit is £18 into the UK not £15 , But does it take into account postage costs. Amazon.ca add £10 for postage.

Just finished watching this tonight, first impressions are off the scale.
Absolutely magnificent picture, the detail on offer was pure AV porn.
As her whom shall not be named said mere minutes ago, "I don't normally notice the picture but that was amazing"
It is a film I have seen several times but never ever like this, the hairs on my neck are standing up just typing this.
Reference and then some.

So £15.71 - is that going to set off customs spidey senses as it's over the £15 limit albeit only just?

I am afraid you are wrong on both counts there. The customs limit was reduced from £18 to £15 some years ago and the limit is for goods only, it does not include carriage/postage.:lesson:;)

Amazon Canada should mark the package in Canadian dollars, which at 24.99 is just under the £15.00 threshold using July's Customs exchange rate of 1.6829 dollars to the £.
I paid for mine in Canadian dollars just in case, thinking by doing so the package will surely be marked in dollars.o_O
