    Hi

    just thinking about bringing things back from Orlando, has anyone ever been stopped in the UK? I know its wrong to consider buying more but the limits are just so stupidly low :(

    Don't know anyone who's ever been stopped. I'm not going to condone it but the limits are low and the bargains plentiful. :wink:
