    Just a quick question to make sure I understand correctly.

    Anything over the value of £18 is subject to charges ?

    Does that include the cost of postage ?

    Thanks

    They're available from Trekking Lite in Germany, so no import fees. Or UOG sell the MSR Core, which are the same pegs, I believe.

    Yes, its one of the great "legal" scams to charge VAT on payment of US postage charges which - unlike the product - never leaves the US. One solution would be 2 seperate invoices. If I ever order something again (without relying on a friend for transport as I normally do), I intend to negotiate that. There is no reason to have postage and product on the same invoice...
