RE: Hidden cost of the MK4 kit

I am over $400 additional dollars since I took delivery in replacement parts due to the horrible printer and horrible tech support blaming me on the problems

RE: Hidden cost of the MK4 kit

FYI, my MK4 + Enclosure kit was shipped via FedEx and I got it all without delay or extra charges. Except about a week later I got a bill from FedEx for the customs charge. I was really surprised that FedEx delivered and then billed, but that is what happened to me. YMMV.

RE: Hidden cost of the MK4 kit

My MK4 was shipped to Iowa, USA and the total was $847 ($799 + shipping). I did not pay any additional duties or customs fees, nor was a broker assigned - it was just a normal old delivery to my house. I was aware that customs was a possibility, but it didn't come up. 

DHL was my carrier, if that matters at all.

I find it interesting that those, me included, that used DHL as the delivery service aren't asset the duty fee even though the cost was over the $800 limit. While others using other delivery services are being charged.

That sounds terrible.

What exactly happened?

Ah. Is that the explanation? That would explain it, but how could that be?

I am completely baffled.
