Thanks for that feedback, NG. ( I know you've posted previously about what you've ordered, and how. ) I sent Price Japan an e mail asking for advice.
Obviously, if I don't agree a customs value, like you suggest, then I dread to think of the customs charges on an item that will be in the region of $800 + !! ( I certainly don't want to end up paying another £100-£200 for this item in customs charges !! )
We tried to get them to go the whole hog on Customs 'gift' & $30 (USD) value but they weren't up for it so we agreed on $110 (USD) for each ZX1, there was no point asking for it to be sent as a 'gift' in that scenario as it would be over the £30 'gift' limit.
Think we drove the poor guy nuts, payments from different sources, confusion over the address (because of the multiple Paypal payments), constant reassuring over Customs, that was just me, my mate took it to the next level Part-1 after I was done.... Part-2 will start next Thursday I'll expect when I'll wind my mate up about delivery concerns, we'll have the guy at Price-Japan in a asylum before the ZX1's arrive, that esteemed hobby of Japanese self-torture will seem like a breeze in the park.
Did I ever mention that there's only 9days 5hours to go until the ZX1 is released? , GMT time.
