Question British Price for M5 vs. US, not just conversion diff.

Hey friends over the big pond, we pay approx $75,000 for our M5's which is about 47,000&'s (sorry, dont know where a lb. key is on the keyboard). Is that what you pay? Reason being, a 575M Ferrari with options per my liking would be 177,740&'s which is nearly $282,000 bucks here and that sounds way too high. So please, empathize and help me out with what the skinny is.
Thanks! Murph

errrrr...

I went in to Barons, Hindhead, it was in the showroom, paid for it, told them not to bother cleaning it, and took it 2 hours later........easy really!

It was funny because the guy i brought it off was a young trainee, apparently his boss at the same time was trying to sell a £15k 316i to some old guy for 2 hours, when i walk in say, "yes i'll take it" and walk out.

The M5 sticker price is £ 52,000 here in the UK. By the time you add a host of useful options (sunroof, M-audio, etc) the total quickly adds up.

My car in the UK would have cost £ 63,000 but I bought the same car in Belgium for £ 50,000 which includes all my options and UK sales tax (known as v.a.t.) - a savings of 20%.
