This is an american website so asking questions like this get no response,

BUT i can offer a little help,

import taxs are about 20% and then you have handling fee's.

You only get taxed for parcels over 100$ (or at least did a year ago)

If your buying on ebay just ask the seller to mark the price at $40 or something and you will get no tax...

Its going to end up costing a lot with postage though, You checked ebay uk for one ?

i think you can get around the taxes if you have it marked as "gift". not 100%sure though.
