I bought a double pushchair from the US, years ago. The import tax was about £30 but even with that, shipping and the actual cost of the pushchair it was still £150 cheaper than the english version. Have to add it took ages to arrive!!

That was about 5 years ago though

I had a blue camo p&t imported from the US before they were released in this country and didn't pay any import tax.

Where you importing to, Italy or UK?
Custom's duty + VAT apply, may get reduced rates for either/both. Country-specific.

And was tax horrendous? I have found a BJCM GT double at a reasonable price even when including shipping. But wondering what import tax woild be like?
I live in Italy but imagine UK will be similar..
