-6.1% duty
-Ontario sales tax
-Transportation costs
-Cost for recall letter and ODO/DRL conversion by BMW. I had a former american car before and I saw the bill for this: 600 dollars from BMW Halifax to go in with GT1 and toggle the option for KMs and DRLs. And they will insist that it MUST be done at a BMW dealer so you can't just go in with DIS to fix it.
Thank you for explaining it.
