Yes, UK customs have taken a shine to it and shortly you'll receive a letter asking for Import Duty to be paid before delivery is made....

Probably.

It could be that taxman doesn't know what to charge because of the lack of a value written on the package. You will then recieve a letter were they ask you to send them the reciept. Good thing you have it in MS word format then ;)

That's what happened to me in Sweden. Don't know if it works the same in the UK.

Oh did I mention that my Blitz Dual SBC Spec-R boost controller only cost about £50 with freight :chuckle:

The exact same thing happend to me a month ago.

A letter will show up from more than likely parcelforce asking you to pay a fee which will differ depending on the value of the item. There is jack you can do untill you get it.
You will then be able to go online and enter a code on the letter linked to your charge and pay the fee there and then. The holding company (probably parcelforce) will then mail your item as normal the next day.

Its a simple process but a biaaaatch none the less.
I got stung for £25 on an ecu.

You could get a bit more info if you check from the Parcelforce website instead of the Japanese EMS site
