The point is BMW openly blame LCT for the price but in reality thats a lie. Its greed. How would you feel if they doubled the price of everything you buy?
Is there any way to obtain ex-works (i.e. pre-tax) price in Oz? Ex-works price difference between Germany & USA is USD18,000, that is a lot of money.
It seems the stronger the currency, the more raw the deal, & BMW is creaming the currency gain. As an example, the Japanese Yen is another currency which gained a lot in the past 3-4yrs when compared to Euro/USD (just like the Aussie), & a 328i Sport costs USD67,000 (5,580,952yen @82.35) ex-works. This means BMW can make 50% more revenue by selling the car in Japan than in USA.
