    Hi.
    I want to get this from cd-wow or other, at just under £30, but will i get hit by customs, I dont really want to pay £40 for R2.

    Is there any company that bypass customs. Don't Yesasia have all there stuff sent to the UK and then sent on?.


    Anyone brought this boxset from aboard?, and not been hit by customs.


    thanks

    cd-wow are meant to be customs friendly now, so you should be fine.

    You will not get hit by customs if you order through CD-wow.

    On the other hand you could buy it from DVD Soon for £21 and take your chances with customs. Even if you get hit for the £8 you're still £1 better off than the CD Wow price.

    But before you do check out your local WH Smith. My local branch had all three seasons and many other TV shows at half price a few weeks back.

    Just to say i just got my box from cd-wow after being out of stock. It was well over the £18, and there was a query on these forums if cd-wow did, or did not repay the import vat duty. Well it is prepaid by Hong Kong, so no worries.

    Or you could order it from DVD IMPORT for £22 and not get any customs charges at all.

    Well he just said he didn't get no customs charges from cdwow anyway so why would he do that?, would take longer from dvd import as well.

    Let me get this right, there's no customs duty to pay if buying from either CD wow or DVD Import?


    Is this right?
