I don't see how you didn't expect this. Obviously prices for vehicles that are made in the same country are gonna be cheaper.

Why are domestics so cheap here in the US? Comparatively, why are BMW's so expensive here?

Common sense :laughat:

I don't know where you get your information, but $188 000 HK = $24 200USD. My family lives in Hong Kong. The import tax on cars there is 100% So what ever the price tag is you double it and thats what you pay. My cousins that drive Honda Civics /Accords in Hong Kong drive Mercedes C-Class here. That's the approximate equivalent.

Ya this has been covered 100's of times ... While the car may be cheap its still gona cost an arm and leg to import from it to the usa even then most of the time it wont be street legal ... I know a member that brought over his csx (canadas civic si that looks like the jdm civic ) from canada when he moved to cali ... Im not sure how he did it but i dont think it cost him anything just alot of paper work to do. :dontknow:

Of course the BMW would be hella exp in Japan...

But what I've heard is, in general, most commodities in Japan costs more on average in comparison to the US just because of the higher cost of living. How much can you fit on a little island?

if you look at the Vin number, our RSXs start with a "J" witch means made in Japan, if it was a "2" it would be Canadian
