    Yep. For example, a 2017 330i RWD, base model with a manual starts at 40,050 MSRP (Currently $44,870). Automatics are still an option there, so an auto would start at 42,200 ($47,264) for a non-sport automatic. The same base model 2017 330i with either an auto or a manual (because autos are FREE here) in the U.S. starts at $38,750. For that, you even get sport seats and a sport automatic transmission as standard on 330i's and above.

    you have to understand how different the economy, and the AUD is, compared to the ol' US of A.

    i would be making about 50-60% more at my job if i lived in australia, but the cost of living is higher, too. it's all relative.

    I figured it would be, but there's always the factor of "well things ARE more expensive here in relation to salary". I would think there is some of that going on there.

    Yeah cost of living is quite high, and housing is ever increasing. Definitely making it harder and harder to buy a house for younger generations (like myself lol). Considering moving to Melbourne at the moment, since housing there is still pretty cheap (about 30% of the cost of Sydney for a comparative location)

    The pay here is definitely a plus side, and there are so many benefits. I do a lot of my shopping overseas though since I'm not working full time yet. Also the beaches, the scenery, and the culinary mixing pot is fantastic.

    Almost sounds like you are describing Toronto. I will never be able to buy a house here. FML.

    Welcome to ZHPmafia though!

    I like to think Canada and Australia are reasonably similar, aside from the inversed climates, and the fact that your politicians aren't quite as retarded as ours.
