    We do? What are the taxes on cars at the moment?

    Import duty (5-10%), GST (10%), LCT on posh cars.
    10% Duty
    10% GST (including on the duty)
    33% LCT above ($57k) (edit: now upped from 25 to 33%)

    There must be a fair bit of BMW/Mercedes/Porsche tax involved too. RHD probably ups it a bit too compared to the US. BUT e.g. brand new UK M3 53k GBP (on the road) = 85k AUD. Someone's making some money off us. Ours may be optioned up a bit but we're talking basically half the price there.

        Jesus!

        LCT is an absolute rort. So a Lotus Elise without LCT would be about $48k.

        Fuck you, government. Fuck you very much.

          Just so we're clear, the 33% is on the part of the price above $57,466. So the LCT on a car costing say $58,466 is roughly $333, not $19,293.

            Well considering there are cars priced between $57,000 and $76,000, yes I would have thought thats obvious.

              Judging by some of the comments in this thread, I'm not so sure - how else can you conclude that a Lotus Elise without LCT would be $48k?

                Ah. Got you.

                Well, that's actually exactly the pricing for the US model Elise, anyway. Which is strange, because they've swapped the steering wheel around to the wrong side for that price.

                  Yeah, you'd think the LHD conversion would cost more!

                    Well, Merc and everyone else seem to charge a shitload more for the RHD version of things.

                    I'm assuming this is because they can.

                      On the topic of over priced Merc's I saw a silver SLS pull out of the valley merc dealership on Monday, sounded horn, looked okay too.

                        so 50% isnt to far off... actually its about 35%
                        $170,000 m3 = $15000 GST, so $155,000 - $57,000 = $93000 @ 33% LCT = $31,000, say 10% Duty on say $80,000? = $8000, + transfer duty @ 4% on $170,000 = $6800. so total tax = $60,800

                          Interesting re: cost of luxo cars...

                          VW (polo, golf etc) are relatively cheap here compared to the UK.

                              From BMW site:

                              Base price $135K (which I assume includes the GST)

                              LCT would be $24,424.50
                              NSW Stamp Duty would be $7,270.00
                              Dealer delivery a laughable $4000
