US Pricing Policy

Partially taxes. I'll give you 19% VAT (loose equivalent of sales tax, let's say), but pretax price of 71500 EURO with options is around at least 105,000 USD (using a conservative exchange rate). Add 19%, and 4500USD for environment tax (gas guzzler, let's say)

I can only say I took delivery early November. For that price difference I'll take a reflector on each door as well. And it's not a viable option to import them from the US. Some people do it for Infinitis and other NA-only cars.
