In addition.
The 2004 V70R / S60R was around $110k new, drive away from the dealer when it was released.

So my question I have been afraid to ask is ... Is income proportion to the increased in coast of living? I know living in Cali is EXpensive but we tend to also make more. Is that true in Australia and Europe in general ? Or is there just a bigger divide ?

So Canadian Big Macs are the most expensive? That's OK by me, though, as I never eat the crap. :p

That's why the call Australia 'Treasure Island'....

Because we are a captive audience retailers can charge a premium.
- where else can we go?

We do have similar issues in Canada, but not as bad as you as we can just nip over to the US and this makes our retailers a bit more reasonable.
