Have you heard that BMW pays your way to Germany to pick out your own car off the line? You get to "test drive" the car in Europe (out of the Munich factory) and by the end of your "vacation", the vehicle gets shipped to you (to the US) free of charge.

At first my husband was telling me he could get the car cheaper there but by the time you pay for all the charges, you only come out ahead with a "free" trip to Germany and full use of the car while you are there (they even insure for you).

I will look for the link with the details...

Well, actually, the way they "sell" you on the idea is that the "savings" you will incur by picking up your car in Germany pays for the trip itself. Let me find the link that explains all of it...

Wish that was the case from Norway too, but here we'd be hit with another 50% hike in price due to all the import fees they have in this country (which is one of the few things I don't like about Norway by the way)!

Oh thats too bad!!! But in your case, can you just drive it over through the border?? (and make a road trip in the process). ;)

I imagine bringing it into Canada would be the same, once you pay all of the taxes it would be worth it... I am jsut guessing though.

Now, what would happen to you if a deer crosses the road and you have no car to cover the blow? Who would be in worse shape, the motorcycle driver or the deer?
