The longest wait so far was a car part from Australia. 3 days airmail from Australia to Frankfurt. Then 6 month to get through customs. It's not funny anymore. It has become really bad in the last couple of years... I am at the point where I seriously think about not buying from outside the EU anymore.

Isn't that the very reason that customs processing has become so slow, to convince people to reach that exact conclusion? I've had similar experiences shipping items to Germany; it makes it NY -> Frankfurt in 2-3 days, and then can take 10-30 additional days to clear customs. No organization could be that inefficient, unless it was intentional or the staff is severely under-manned deliberately to achieve the same effect. Seems to be working...

Yes, I suspect you are spot on with your evaluation of the situation.
