NO... I'm NOT comparing dealer list!!
The dealer had a demo unit with 9000km on it "On Sale" for $80,800 (regular price was $88K). THAT is the number I'm comparing to... and it didn't even have the ZCP option.

Facts are facts... no twisting of numbers is required. Just assumptions clouding over the facts I presented.

And here in BC we don't get much of a tax break from the goverment if we buy privately... we still have to pay 7%. But my comparison is based on the fact that I bought from a dealer in the US... and compared to dealer in Canada. I found used 2011's in US for even less than I paid at US dealer so that argument bears little weight.

I'd be happy to provide a complete breakdown of costs for import and you can do your own comparison based on facts.
