Fancy cars that avoid luxury car tax

Lux Car

Luxury cars cost us more than other places in the world, mainly because these cars are built in places like Germany and Italy. The main reason for luxury cars being more expensive in Australia than other countries is that we as Aussies have to pay a large Federal Government luxury car tax on new cars priced above a threshold that changes each year.


There are plenty of great second hand luxury cars to buy on Gumtree and you can find a great deal. So, if you’re in the market for an Audi, BMW, Mercedes, Range Rover or even a Porsche – take a look at what Gumtree Cars has to offer before buying a brand new car out of the showroom. It could save you a lot of heartache and money.

Thid M3 has a chunkier look than earlier models, with wheels pushed further out to the sides of the car and taking bulging wheel arches with them. Like previous models this has a long BMW bonnet that features a bulging power dome in its centre, which is needed to contain the large intercooler fitted underneath.

Inside there are plenty of M Sport features including carbon-fibre trim, Merino leather sports seats and sports steering wheel with M contrast stitching. Very James Bond.
