That's OK if you are dealing with a VAT registered company. Small companies not registered and individual vendors you will pay 20% UK VAT plus extra £11 demurrage. I am in the process of importing a classic car radio from Germany. The package has disappeared into the bowls of DHL.
No such thing as a cheap MB, Have just spent around £5K on my 190B, total brake (drums) overhaul, prop shaft work, new kingpins etc, rear axel oil leak and many small items neglected by the last fixer.
I think you are right, have heard same number.
But there are considerable increase in cost of paperwork/documentation.
The radio I am getting for my 190B costs around €235 so VAT and other charges will be added.
Downside of Brexit.
Does price include German VAT at 19%? You will have to pay 20% on import plus other charges
Get a quote from vendor less German VAT.
I just bought a radio from Germany and the vendor is not VAT registered and it will cost an extra 25%,
VAT, handling charges etc.
The appalling ’roads’ in Africa the last thing you need is fancy electronics. Fuel consumption is minor consideration,
My LR Defender was on its 3rd set of wheel bearings and total brake overhaul at around 75k kilometres
