But there is also the VAT problem.

Shipped direct to the USA, you don't pay German VAT (20%), just the US import duties on the value EXcluding VAT.

But, get it sent to someone in Germany (or other EU countries), and you pay the 20% VAT, and US duties on the value INcluding VAT.

How big is the tail? Shipping is quite expensive at 45 + Euros (conv is $1.4 to 1 Euro)... you should plan to spend about $100 for shipping... then you will have to deal with customs

I buy stuff all the time in the US as it is pretty hard to find stuff here in Germany and the prices are really good in the US... I usually pay between $30 and $75 to have stuff shipped here... usually takes 3-4 weeks to get here and I have to pay 22% customs when it does arrive

Send me a link and I will take a look at it, I have helped someone before but it turnd out to be a bad deal...
