You guys are lucky!
One of my co-workers was espousing this. In the case of higher-end Audis I think it's true as they have NO natural EUR/USD hedge (no production Stateside) - at least BMW has Spartanburg.

I moved to the US just so I could afford a high-end Bimmer or Porsche What w/ nose-bleed prices for 911s etc Downunder and not to mention Sydney / Perth / Auckland home prices ( ) ... sums could never be made to work.
