EU Greetings from Holland

Hi,

This forum is the best!

i drive a TSX from 2004 imported from the US in 2006

Are there any other TSX drivers from Holland here?

Thanks Zhieson for the welcome.

I have posted a link of my car. i have it now for a couple of weeks.

I am making all kind of excuses just to drive it. its a dream to drive as we all know

for you information the price of one gallon of fuel is $7.55

Buying a new Honda Accord would set you back a nice €42.400,- $57.540,-

Depends on the model, the entrylevel starts at 30.000 euro.
and for the price of 57.540 it's pretty much loaded.

True, if you would like to have more or less the same spec as the TSX you need to have the executive "loaded" version.

Any other TSX's driving in holland?

Does Europe get a lot of second hand cars from the US? I remember reading an article a couple months ago about Germans wanting Honda Elements and Scion tCs from the US.

Welcome to the club!
Thanks for the warm welcome,

Well yes and no. Majority of cars that are being sold are not from import even less than 1%. We do import a lot of cars from Germany. Because in Holland we have a tax on cars of 45.2%. When we import a car from Germany or the US it gets cheaper the older the car gets. And the Germans are more kind to their car then the average Dutch man. When a car is 4 years old its +/- 23% tax. This combined with the dollar/euro exchange rate it could be a bargain.

There are a lot of commercials on the radio about "dollar weeks" wherein US branded car dealers offer the exchange rate difference as discount.
