Anything imported to the UK outside the EU is liable to VAT (15% plus a handling fee).. You even pay VAT on the shipping cost.. so factor this in when buying from the US as a potential add on. I have B6's fitted and they are spot on. It might be worth contacting a UK supplier for a bulk buy price for comparison of shipping some in from the US

You'll pay a total of 25% thats 15% VAT and 10% import tax.It could still work out ok,we really do get humped on the price of parts in this country
