Carried over from the BMW forum..... Your calculation is wrong. You do not multiply by 0.8 to get the net price before VAT. And also, you're including the VLF in the reduction as well, which is wrong. To calculate the net price correctly you: £73,065 - £645 = £72,420 Then, £73,065 divided by 1.2 = £60,350. To check this, you can do it the other way: £60,350 x 1.2 = £73,065 + £645 = £73,065 With regards the GBP to Dollar conversion, the rate according to xe.com means the UK M5 is: $92,710 Another calculation which is wrong. I chose a random selection of cars, from entry level 1 Series to M5, to X5 M, to 640i GC. Again, the base price in the UK for the 328i is £24,217, NOT what you say. You need to work on your maths my friend. And £24,217 in USD is $37,202, NOT $34,927. Get your facts straight before trying to cause arguments. No, but there certainly is a bigger one now! And where did I say there was a big difference? I said cars were cheaper in the U.S. than the UK. Simple as that.
