    Problem is that is Norway the RS4 must cost as much as a Carrera GT in Germany

    I've heard the taxes are crazy for luxury cars over there.

    Well, almost

    You can more or less double the price of a car in Germany and get the Norwegian price, because of the insane taxes.

    We have import tax on cars, based on weight, engine size, and horsepower. For every hp over 170 hp, we pay 200 USD pr hp in tax. So a RS4 would have more than 50.000 USD just in hp tax - go figure!

    Here are a few examples:
    997 Carrera S: 160.000 Euro/220.000 USD
    Carrera GT: 640.000 Euro/870.000 USD
    Audi RS4, estimate: 180.000 Euro/240.000 USD

    How much is the CGT in Germany?

    Re: New Audi RS4

    So for a price of a Boxster S you could buy a turbo cab in the U.S.; this is insane .

    Re: New Audi RS4

    Probably - it is insane
    Our only comfort is that Denmark and Singapore have even higher prices than us

    But there's hope, a new EU ruling says that carprices have to be the same all over Europe, and we have to follow that as a member of the EEC (not a full EU member). So within 10 years we should have "normal" carprices as well.

    The cars worst off by these taxes are american cars because of their weight, engine size and mucho hp. So a Corvette costs as much as a 997 Carrera S in Norway! (No wonder they don't sell any)

    Re: New Audi RS4

    I did't read about DSG gearshift.
    Which size are the tyres??????
    Avant will be nicer

    Re: New Audi RS4

    Just talked to the dealer today and they said this car won't be in the states till late 2006 . Doesn't make any sense to me to come here that late.

    Temm, you are right at least with regards to the Danish taxes. Here are some of the reasons why I moved to Paris - Danish list prices, and those you do not get any discount on, well if you are lucky euro 1000-2000, simply the dealers does not have much profit to play with.

    997 Carrera S: 248.000 Euro/325.000 USD
    Carrera GT: 1.390.000 Euro/1.820.000 USD
    Audi S4..!!, old version: 148.000 Euro/194.000 USD

    Add to that you for a 997S easily reach Euro 30,000 when it comes to extras....they are sick these politicians

    The tyres are 255/35-19.

    Re: New Audi RS4

    And the Avant is confirmed as well, from audi.co.uk:

    Pricing and full specification for right-hand-drive versions of the new RS 4 quattro, which will be available in both saloon and Avant estate body styles (Avant from 2006), will be announced closer to its UK launch in spring 2005, ahead of first customer deliveries in autumn 2005

    Re: New Audi RS4

    Looks like Audi is finally moving away from the 1991 Avus concept car - style wheel on their future sport models .
