MY GOD! some of those prices are bordering on ridiculous.
Whats to stop you buying from elsewhere in Europe and driving the car home though????????
You have to register the car in norway. And that's when all the various taxes and stuff comes into play, and makes every car insanely expencive. On several models, the taxes you have to pay are twice what you pay for the car (!)
And, no, you just can't skip registering the car 'cause the cops will stop you. And then you'll be in a shitload of trouble.
Example of a 1994 toyota supra:
Price without taxes: 17.525 usd
Price of registration (taxes etc): 18.262 usd.
And a lot of people are all like "well, you make so much money in norway all of you" but that's wrong. What you need to understand about norway is that it's govern by a system promoting the rich. If you're already filthy rich, you got it good. If you're joe average, trying to make a living, you're kept down by the system. It's all about keeping the different classes of people seperated. Middle class should not, by any means, be able to blend with the upper class. And anything real fun (like fast cars) should be kept at a level where only the rich can afford it.
People are dying while they're waiting to get admitted to some over crowded hospital. Old people doesn't get propper care. I pay almost 40% in taxes on everything I make. I can't afford an appartment and a car, even tho I have a fulltime job. It's just too f'ing expencive. A small 50 square feet appartment costs 126.000 usd here just outside of oslo. God, I hate the way this country is run..
