There was a dealership in the UK that was willing to ship them to the US. I will be travelling to Qatar on Tuesday. I'll be over there for maybe a week or two max. On my way home I've got to stop in the UK for a couple days of meetings. Maybe if the timing worked out, I could hand carry it back for you if you found a place to buy it that would let me pick it up for you.
I got lucky and had a UK co-worker that let me ship it to his UK house and the next time he went home he hand carried it back. He said US Customs didn't give him any grief whatsoever.
If you're interested, PM me and I'll shoot you my cell number.
