I’ve just had delivery of two items from Chariot.

diffuser and front access panel.

happy with diffuser, not quite so with th front access panel (V weave slightly off centre). Waiting to see what their thoughts are…

What is the issue with the front panel ? Only the V weave ? Do you have any fitting issues ? Like being too high above the clam?

4 days HK to UK.

No duty.

Sorry to go on but did you have to pay any VAT on the goods?

I’m reading up on import duties and one website says none due from HK due to the free trade agreement but then I’m reading other posts where people suggest VAT and Import Duty is to be paid.

The additional taxes doesn’t make it such a good deal.

The 430 cup Louvered hatch is £1600 + £550 delivery + import duty (15%?) + VAT

Total cost would likely be over £3k which is still cheaper than the Lotus part but it’s a lot of money for just a bit of bling.

I guarantee you will get a invoice through the post in the next few weeks from TNT. This is now normal practice. They give you a pretty short timeline to pay and are relentless in chasing it up.

The shipping is c35%

So believe this includes the 20%vat and 3%import tax on carbon fibre 

Although an online import duty calculator suggests it's 2% from HK 

Welcome to TLF. :welcome:

Do you have a Lotus? (not required to be a member one here though)

You should duck over to the introductions area and say hi in there as well. :)
