Dear All,<br> I am considering in getting the 540iA as I posted earlier. Well, anyway I want to know what other costs (beside the price of the car+options+destination charge) I have to pay beside taxes. Anyway I was looking at http://www.carpoint.com auto pricer for the 540iA and when I select the Sport package option, they said I have to add somehting $2000 for the gas guzzler tax (w/o the sport package I do not have to pay the gas tax) I do not understand this at all. Does the sport pkg lowered the mpg of the car that much??? One more question does anyone knows how many % of sales tax I have to pay (I live in VA)<p>Thank you very much for Your response,<br>KBP.

Sometimes it's cheaper...and even if it's a wash...you might get <br>a free trip and a fun visit to the factory...??<br>...maybe drive it on the Autobahn??? YA..??
