I can't say for all brazilians, but it's life, if we want a BMW we have to pay what they want. Here it's really very expensive the cars, not just BMW, but all cars.
But comparing to US for example, we pay much less in medical & dental insurance, apartaments/houses, etc.
Each country has your particularities. And from the news, they tell that will decrease the cost from 15% to 40%, then things will be very interesting.
