For those of us resident in the UK depending on how we option our vehicle we could potentially be looking at a tax cost of £1500 over 5 years when buying a new M3. From April 2017, any new vehicle costing over £40,000 will be subject to a "luxury" car tax. Historically zero emission vehicles paid no VED. With the impact of the GBP/USD exchange rate post Brexit and ticking a few options boxes, the retail price of the M3 has the potential to creep over the £40k mark. Potentially some UK owners will be financially better off, not ticking those option boxes of those that can be enabled remotely after delivery. Obviously we don't know the base cost of the vehicle or the options packages yet but trying to do the right thing and purchasing a zero emissions vehicle could end up costing you more in tax than buying a performance ICE.
