  1. Thanks Andy / Jonny - I hadn't realised that I'd misunderstood on the significance of origin.
  2. Andy, I believe it now also applies to goods originating from within the EU where the value exceeds £135. Imported EU goods with a value above £135 now attract import duty according to the Commodities Codes list, plus UK VAT (if applicable), plus whatever the carrier’s clearing charge might be (DHL are 2.5% for example). EU imports below the £135 value should be simple - so long as the EU seller can be bothered to register with HMRC (the EU seller is now obliged to raise the UK VAT regardless of consignment value). Many are not it seems.
  3. Was curious too, enjoyed the Vintage Voltage moment.
  4. Good work, and a blessing you can get to it without a total dash strip (as is the way with most moderns now).
  5. Duties - rate according to the relevant Commodity Code. Some are zero, some not.
  6. Brings back memories of my Dad's Paris Blue XR2i - £6,600 new!
  7. Pretty sure DPD, DHL and GLS (Royal Mail) are still suspending UK / EU / UK road freight. Air freight has seen an increase as a result. You'll be paying VAT plus duties, providing the sender can do the docs.
  8. If you can warm the paint and the wheels up a bit whilst spraying them it helps a lot.
  9. Thanks. As I already have the plastic connectors and male terminals I had thought I would just buy the female terminals. May have to resort to totally new connector and terminals then.
  10. Anyone know where I can get some? I thought the metal terminals in the door mirror socket and plug were called Tyco AMP. I think they might also be called Mate’N’Lok, or Mini Mate’N’Lok but am not sure if that’s right or which is the right size. Actually, I didn’t even know they came in different sizes, but the ones I ordered are too big with a male pin 2.0mm. The original Porsche pins in the mirror plug are 1.5mm.
