FWIW, my local, mint, loaded '08 coupe cost me less (private sale is the key) than what I could find in the US after calculating all taxes, fees, costs etc..
I did find that there were some good deals for coupe's. Not alot, but the odd one. I did find one good deal on a sedan, which was private sale. It had everything I wanted except was 6MT. I could have been happy with the car, but my wife will be using it occasionally and she really wanted to get DCT instead of 6MT so I passed on it.

It's a little bit more work to buy in the USA, and can be much more stressful. The car I bought was 3K KM's away so I had to buy it sight unseen. However, I was likely way more careful than I would have been if I had actually seen the car.
