True... except that to benefit from the spread you have to actually sell the C7 into the US market to monetize the currency benefit. Otherwise, it is a feel good exercise... which is still important :D. If you only transact in Canada, the exchange rate doesn't really matter.

Having said that, it is, as you say, an amazing bargain today. GM lowered the price to essentially match US pricing when the dollar was better and now the reduction they instituted is too high given the current dollar :D
What really sucks is the restricted Canadian allocations, along with GM's import & warranty policy.
hearing that the CDN dollar will go back up a bit soon. ( temporary - then back down )

But I can see a price change happening.

Yes, lock in now... I said this in another thread.
Yes. I love this about Alberta. I cant even imagine paying 13% on top of a purchase. 5% on something this large seems like a lot even.


Try living in a province with 15% sales tax and a 50% top marginal personal income tax rate :mad: It would be called Nova F'ing Scotia :rofl:
Try living in Quebec, where you pay the most taxes in North America (sales and income). Thank you Canada for all the extra cash to help us stay afloat. It didn't buy my C7 though ;)
