Anyone here ship their ECU to States for tune?

Just currious, I just picked up a SC kit from AA, I need to send them my ECU for Tuning...
Will i be hit with Duty charges again????
If so that seems like BS, any way around it?
Ship as warranty work or something?

AA actully reduced the headers to 200$ value the first time and the customs people sent it back so I had to wait almost 2 weeks to get my headers back and my car was just sitting there whie I waited for the damn headers...

I sent my chip to AA in Miami for tune. Having said that give MarkD a call he is a member on this forum. Does a great job and if you have any problem he is local.

I always mark as "Used Car Part's" in the description first before I list them induvidualy in the customs form.
Custums dude just needs that to pass it through and on it's way with no additional costs, that and provided they do not see a ECU in orginal BMW packaging all shiny and new.
