using exchange rate 1.112 thats 47900 - 40700 = $7200CAD difference
but i guess after gst 6% + pst 7% + 6% duty it's the same $7000

Your math is mostly correct, however the PST and GST are added after you add duty. ie ($40699+$2441)*1.13=$49180excel wrote:36600USD convert to canadian using 1.112 = $40699 CAD
so 40699CAD + GST $2441 + pst $2848 + duty 6% $2441 = $48429CAD
compared to $47900MSRP here + gst $2874 + pst $3353 = $54127
still save $5698 oh you're right! haha my bad
by the way, this whole importing thing is only if we buy the car out right, no leasing ?

Don't know how it compares with the US prices but Volvo Canada (and Mercedes and others) also have Overseas Delivery programs. Not sure how much you can actually save but the principle is that you order a car from the Canadian dealership as OSD, then you go to Europe and pick up the 'Canadian marker' car there, drive it for a while, return it to the factory (or wherever they tell you), they import it to Canada and then you take possession of it here. The money saving is that when you import it, you are now importing a used car so you only pay taxes and duty on the used value of the car (for a $20k car, there's not much savings but for a $75k car, it's pretty significant).raymondy wrote:I don't know about BMW but Volvo OSD (Oversea Delivery) program requires you to be a US resident with social insurance number. I just found out that when I tried to order a 2007 XC90 from a US dealer. Best thing to do is to buy a in stock car with manufacturer's incentives.

Anyone else have experiences dealing with Toyota dealers near the boarder? I can't see why they would turn away customers...nanirina wrote:Actaully on the contrary, a lot of US dealers I've contacted refuse to sell to Canadians (those are Toyota dealers). They said their license doens't let them do that or Toyota manufacturer gives them a rule of not selling to Canadians or something like that. That's pretty ridiculous.
