No. We just pay about $10,000 to$12,000 more in import taxes. Now it's better than last year. Stealers were asking $75,000 for the SS because they were very limited and there are people here that are willing to waste money to have the new kid on the block. Now they're down to $50-52,000.

The more expensive a car is, the larger the percentage of taxes. For example, the M3 runs for 60k in the US but 90k here. The 911 which goes for 80k in the US goes for 120k here. It's exponential.

Yes we're practically the 51st state but the government puts a lot of strategical taxes so the rich pay exponentially more than the poor.

That's ridiculous man...good to see some of our fellow 51st staters over there repping the Camaro name though despite the government's almost unethical cut they try to take for you guys to own them...

There's a few. I've been sending messages. Spread the word. With a Social Group, we don't need a Regional Forum.
