But prob worth adding that for you guys in the 'states it will likely go the other way.

Our dollar has been trading about the same as yours. So, all else equal we should pay your price plus our GST (tax).

Meaning you'll be charged $20K for the 1190R when they arrive late next year, given similar profit margins on both sides of the deal.

The reality is, it is in the interest of both sides to give you guys a break.

But over the longer term, it will even out.

Especially as it appears your government is working hard to keep your currency cheap, so that people elsewhere can buy more of what you make.

Which probably means you should snap up a 990 at current prices.

If they were $15K RRP here, they'd be on every street corner.
