shipping - $55 US
.....................................
574.9 US = 659.76 CAD (@ today's rate, to buy 574.9 US would cost 659.76 CAD, see Royal Bank's calculator)

659.76 x 1.15 = 758.24 CAD - With PST and GST (You must pay both taxes when you import into Ontario)
$53.74 CAD - brokerage (see UPS's site here)
$8.06 CAD - GST on brokerage
.................................................. .................................................. ................................................
Subtotal so far
$758.24 + $53.74 + $8.06 = $820.04 CAD

That doesn't even include the duty amount for importing German made goods. Using RBC's foreign exhange calculator, 820.04 CAD is about 714 US.

Now, if you have an M3 and are interested, let me know, otherwise, please don't try to crap on my thread.

Again, I am asking asking $550 US or $630 CAD. You can see that it cost over $820 CAD for these
