Why is this allowed?
Does your country have gay new car prices compared to the US?
Ask the HUEHUEs.
They have to pay like 10k for a smallsize 80's VW or some shit.
Uh a mustang costs 100k~ here in Australia too. An f250 costs 110k.. A guy paid 4 million dollars for an Aston Martin one-77. Three guys paid 1.8million for Lexus lfa's. A Porsche 911 turbo costs around 220k here.. A BMW m3 costs like 150k..
Eurofag pls stop whining.
I made this ages ago
Canada a shit
We also have a ridiculous fucking 'luxury tax', because apparently only rich assholes can buy nice cars and must be taxed appropriately.
We don't even have a fucking car industry left to protect by taxing foreign cars. Ford is closing this year and Holden the next.
I thought roadsters were all about the actual driving experience?
May as well it's a roadster so will have a comparatively poor J value
It's a miata, you are going to get cold drafts everywhere.
Going to need it to be loud to hear it over the wind noise with the top up or down.
Those are not $, they're €.
In Ausfalia the average wage is like 4 times Italy, over here the basic Mustang GT costs €43000 which is 64k AUD or 46k USD. 100k€ are 150k AUD.
100k € on that other one seems odd, though, but over here any car with more than 250 hp is classified as "luxury" and gets taxed to hell and back.
Fair enough but muh sales
I don't like them but don't see the problem
Again don't see the problem.
When you drive a roadster you don't always want muh raw visceral experience, especially if you're DDing one. Except for automatic none of these really interfere with driver feedback and such anyway.
Ah I'd forgotten it's a Miata, and just answered the question based on a normal car. Although thinking about it Lexus did the GS300 and that has to be a reference to ancient Greek homosexuality.
>10% import tax
>23% "sales tax"
>~19% tax for engines over 2000ccm added (non refundable)
it's fucking retarded because you can own a car with a "group B"-tier engine with ~400HP, but importing japanese diesel family sedan/suv is automatically stupidly expensive (~45% more than in US)
in poorland it's ~38k$ for the base i4 version
because lol over 2000ccm
and there is/was constant whining
>waaah why people don't want to buy new cars and import "rusted" "crap" for germany
>fail to sell abroad
>somehow Fords fault your cuck country taxes the shit out of anything fun
Gotta pay for them immigrants I guess
It must be a typo... Just cross the border and buy it in belgium then.
Remember that euro prices are always all taxes included.
>Uh a mustang costs 100k~ here in Australia too.
Base-model EcoBoost with nothing added
EU has higher VAT, US cars sold in EU (not shipped directly from US) have different, stronger brakes, you have customs fee, price of shipment, often the same cars on EU market (no extra options) have better quality of interior, 'rarity tax'. Add all this and boom, you have price.
BTW. About prices in Australia. WTF is wrong with this country? It is cheaper to buy plane tickets to US, fly there, buy photoshop and fly back to Australia than to buy photoshop in Australia...
Hard to provide because there is no indication even on manufacturers site. I found out about this like 2 years ago when I spoke with couple dealers in US (BMW, Mercedes, Audi). After trial ride I asked them why cars break so weak ( I have Audi and BMW in europe) and they told me that because roads in US are built in differen way brakes on US market are weaker and when US manufacturers send cars to europe they change brakes for EU market.
Norway, not even once. Even if you could afford to buy a nice car there, everyone drives exactly the speed limit and there are cameras every half mile in the entire country as they auto extract tolls for driving on 80% of all the roads. The mountains were nice, and it was hilarious seeing all the LA, Brooklyn and comically overpriced TGI Fridays in a prime downtown location, but I would never go back.
In america, TGI Fridays are among the worst resturants you could ever go to, and are generally next to on ramps. They love that shit in Norway becuase, I can only assume, it's American.
This is all nothing. Us aussies have to pay
>200k for a mustang
>550k for a porsche turbo S
Why, you might ask? Well it's not exchange rates, it's FUCKING LUXURY CAR TAX.
200k of tax alone on that porsche for no fucking good reason.
and all that money goes to immigrants and bogans on cennalinks.
fuck this country
>cold drafts etc
Typically convertibles have fucking amazing heaters. There's really no reason to get heated seats. I've been in a bone stock NA miata with the top down in -5 degree F weather and warm because the heat was blasting.
It's actually very comfy.
This. It's unfortunate.
I didn't even know we were in such shit shape until I had to pay $40CAD for a Hulu Plus subscription. We were at $1.40CAD/USD yesterday. So essentially anything we buy will eventually become 40% more expensive, and large items tend to see that change first.
I don't understand how gas is still so cheap though.
>most expensive model has no turbo
>the expensive extra is a fucking audio system though your are driving a fucking convertible
What the fuck? That's fucking over two times the price in USD,
It's proportionate to an extent. Like the other anons said, we have higher taxes which means our "non-standard" bills are less (school, health).
But buying shit in the states is almost always cheaper. Especially if you don't claim it for taxes (sometimes it's even cheaper to buy a new car there and pay the tax to own it here somehow, no idea how).
But our minimum wage is higher, true. A strong Canadian dollar wrt the US is usually bad for our economy though, but it being this low is also obviously bad. We seem most prosperous around 90c on the dollar.
bongistan base for ecoboost is £30,500, 5litre v8 GT £35,000
that german price is BS.
the options are pitiful on the bong mustang though
on the gt with all top options chosen cost is still less than 40k
Got the Sports line in red which is 750€ more + a few extas without that sport package, have to pay 27.000€ (about 29000$) At least we don't have crazy taxes on cars in Gemany.
>Just cross the border and buy it in belgium then.
This is what a lot of people do, actually. Buy a big car and register it in Germany or Belgium.
Most people that do this buy higher-end BMWs, Mercs or Audis though, not Mustangs.
it's mandatory to have them but not mandatory to use them in some countries. In Germany for example it's only recommended to drive with lights on, Austria got rid of the law in 2007.
Uh its always been like this. Good think I bought my 2016 Golf R for $33000 USD in November. Got really lucky despite the low exchange rate.
PROTIP: All ameriburgers should buy cars here.
Germany here, this is what the Mitsubishi SUV/pickup lineup costs
>Almost double the price of a BRZ/FRS
Fuck I remember why I hate living here.
