Not to troll and start a political debate, but when I visit Australia this summer, I need to find a politician who can sit down and tell me why I can buy an Aventador and a half here for the price of 458 Italia in Australia. My fully loaded X5M cost as much as the cheapest X5 35i there... I've read several articles about this and the BS given by company spokespeople is just ridiculous. I don't know why I'm concerned about this at all but it just bothers me so much!! Sorry for the rant.
Not just cars cost more everything costs more. On line retailing is booming at the moment. The only businesses winning in Australia are the small freight package companies.

Yeah every time someone I know goes there their Facebook is littered with pictures of $19 boxes of cereal and $25 six packs of Coronas. We have a few Aussie friends that visit regularly and they do all their online shopping in the US. They send the packages to our house and then pay to ship it all at once to Australia.
