Unlikely mats. It does seem that EU customs are stepping up the drive to
get money.
I send stuff home to ireland about once a month and recently they have
started opening
Everything and asking for what they estimate the value of it is,
regardless of stated value.

I will see how it works in a week or so, as I just sent a minidisc
player home with value of 
40 dollars, to see if it gets under the radar.

Maybe you could get someone over here to do purchases for ya.  Kind of
like how it was pre
Online stores.

Anybody that knows about an online-store based in the U.S, that will
send out packages to Europe, which has a decent/great selection of music
for reasonable prices that WON'T declare the totalt amountof the
purchase on the parcel being sent?

I've gotten fed up with all my latest purchases being stuck in customs
and then extra-taxed before getting t me... - a few years ago customs
didn't care at all here in Sweden, but it seems like they've toughen up
on non-EU packages. It's kinda ridicolous to have to pay almost the same
amount being paid at first to get your parcel out of the damn post
