You are exactly right

If I removed the VAT (and started with 56,006 - like South illustrated just before I did), we'd end up with a base of $50,368 base with the 67% rule - and we know that is not true. What am I missing?
Yes that is taken into account. My bad, it slipped my mind that this was simply another ratio calculation. Any idea how these compare to E46 M3 option prices (or 335i or M5 for that matter)?
