markup is ridiculous in China.

A Mercedes S550 is about 1.5 million RMB. about 220K USD. but that's for a regular citizen.

I'm sure they didn't pay for importation taxes for cars from their own gov't.

Haha..yea in countries like India/China, if you're well connected you don't pay taxes...you get around them at the port and stuff...have your car wavied through, and other items too.

For some reason they love long wheelbase here ( i am guessing it's cuz people usually hire personal drivers to drive the car and the owner enjoys the extra space in the back)

All current E60 and the new F10's are long wheelbase. Audi's A4, A6 are also only offered in long wheelbase..

personally i am not a fan as it ruins the weight ratio of the car and makes them ever harder to maneuver and park in tight parking spaces around the city.

maybe in India, but it is nearly impossible now in China (unless you import to a shady province and pay a lot in bribes), even if you could do it, most likely you won't be able to get the proper papers without even more connections (meaning your car won't have plates or registration)

taxes, this is prior to car consumption tax (about another 10%) i think only thailand and maybe Singapore are more expensive + a lot of countries around the same ball park. ( China is the largest car market in the world... the government is making more than the car manufacturers with the amount of cars they import here) 22 - 530L's is chump change

I read it on Car and Driver a few issue ago that BMW sells twice as many cars in China than in the States during 2009, so I guess I am not surprised after all.

Few years back i was overtaken by an german undercover police car. A 530i sedan. The bastards fined me a 340 euro fine. For speeding hehe. I was doing 200kmh where 120 was allowed. Because of a high bridge. They were teasing dutchies who came back from winter holiday in the alps. I saw a list in his hand with only dutch numberplates on it.

In many european counrties they drive 5series cop cars.
