    Import a TV into Bali

    Anyone tried to import a TV into Bali? I understand if it's new I'd have to pay a shedload of tax on it but what actually does that mean? If I buy it and play it for 2 weeks somewhere it's not "new" anymore is it? Would be interested in any experience you've had.

    To admin - TransferWise advertising

    I have noticed that TransferWise has a banner which posts on the last comment of every thread I open. Is this paid advertising or have they infiltrated the forum on the sly?
