Hey everyone.

I've been a fan of the show for quite a while, and recently, I have been lurking around the forum, and i decided to register.
My first post on here is a question for the Dutch people on this forum. ( I saw a few during the above mentioned lurking)
I'm planning to buy some stuff from the noobstore, and I was wondering if the Dutch guys on here that bought something in the past,
could share some info about the Dutch custom fees and taxes.
I know they recently changed the amounts that don't get charged extra fees n stuff, in the customers favor, but i keep hearing stories about ordering stuff from outside
the EU, where people end up paying twice the checkout price, and getting "naheffingen" (don't know the English word lol icon_razz.gif) 2 months later, and annoying stuff like that.

I would really appreciate it if you could share some info.
Thx in advance.

I've never have to pay customs tax.. and I've ordered a LOT of stuff. And they did change the max amounts that get charged, so there's an even smaller chance. Shipping times have varied a lot.. from 5 days to 4 weeks. It's really luck of the draw, size of your package and how much they have in stock.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.
