I've finally got mine after paying 6 Euro tax (8 quid sounds a bit high). Thanks Adam and Luke.
The letter from the German customs office demanded two copies of the invoice in German and bank records to show how much I had paid. I didn't bother with all that and showing them the mainboard photo by way of a description of the package contents seem to frighten them into not asking further questions.
