THIS is what people aren't considering. We pay income tax and sales tax, plus lots of different local taxes where the places with the VAT it's all just a single tax.

Add all of these other taxes together and you are probably paying the same/more for that vehicle-you just don't know if because most of your money vanished before it even hit your wallet.

I find it hard to believe anyone can afford an M3 at that age unless you live at home with the parents or some kind of assistance financially.

In Russia loaded E92 w DCT will run you at least $150K. I feel blessed living in the US paying half of that and with all the tuners, parts in the world within easy reach. There is simly no better place in terms of affordability of our cars, I repeat No better place! Singapour and others asking upwards of 200K are rediculous and make me very angry, those greedy fat politicians who make laws like that must fuc$&ing die!

Nice to put things in perspective.

People get so wrapped up in their little bubbles that they fail to
see what a great deal we get on most everything!

And then they come in here to call people morons for paying $1500
over invoice when they could have gotten $500 over

True. Other places tax consumption whereas we tax production but that does not account for some areas where it costs almost 3x as much. I think it depends on the structure.

BMWAG imports cars through BMWNA, who I believe buys the cars.

In South Korea my understanding is an importer buys a bunch of cars and imports them. I think the importer gets some sort of agreement from the gov't to import so many cars. The domestic market there has a BIG sway on that agreement I'm sure. So the importer can jack up the price well above the MSRP + tariffs because there's a significant supply shortage with a growing demand.

Then the US does not levy tariffs directly on imported cars which keeps prices down. In addition, many car makers find it cost effective to produce cars here.

Wrong, just look at Europe income tax rates for example. Western Europe countries have income tax, in fact the maximum rates are in average much higher than the US, and most have a sales tax as well, and they still get screwed on the price they pay for an M3 compared to the US.
