If it is delivered "new" to CONUS, then you do pay the GGT (as I recall). If you are stationed in Europe and take delivery/register it in Europe, then there is no GGT. The downside is that I never received the "window sticker", which would have showed the GGT.

I am not sure if there is a "time limit" on the GGT, but evidently there is on the import duty tax, in terms of accepting delivery and shipping it back "too quickly".

I will head back to CONUS after a little 3 years of ownership, so all should be good...just have a year over here with no warranty.
