I'll get the ball rolling.
Australian dollars incl taxes and fitting:
255/40-19 ContiSport Contact II $937
285/35-19 ContiSport Contact II $947

US Dollars from Tirerack:
$249 front (AUD$332)
$265 Rear (AUD $353)
So Aussies pay 3X the cost of US!

I think your getting a bit ripped off, at those prices.

It would be fair to say Sydl that it would be far cheaper if we import them ourselves. I assume the US prices are lower due to the Australian market being very small in comparison to the US & a heck of a lot further away from Europe also..

No kidding - but I have quotes from two sources (one from BMW dealer, and the other from an independent) - it'll be the Conti importers that's setting the price.
