Question Parts from UK

Do any of you have experience with ordering parts out of the UK? I'm taking a long, hard look at getting a set of Morettes from NeedForSpeed.co.uk, and am feeling doubts as I worry about the parts getting hung up in customs...

Are my worries valid, or is a 8-10 shipping (air) days extimate about right?

I got my Impreza hood scoop from MC Rallying in the U.K. it took about a week, but damn was it expensive. You have to pay VAT not to mention the customs fee and then shipping to boot. Is it really worth it? Did you call Z1 performance, it would most likely be a hell of a lot cheaper.

Default VAT

Froggert is right. Only EU residents would pay British VAT.
This means you in the States will get 17.5% off all UK prices (because the general practice is to quote prices inclusive of VAT). Make sure you remind the vendor
