Registration for out of state vehicle.

FYI, I just got back from the Department of Motor Vehicles in Roseville, California. Fortunately, I calculated an estimated sales tax and registration for my 360 online first. The person that was helping me accidentally added a $3,000.00 luxury tax that does not apply. Beware of hidden fees when you register an out of state vehicle.

Hi F1.360.LOVER - I am contemplating an out of state purchase too (F430). If you don't mind - what fees (don't need $$, but % of sales price would be great) did you pay? Luxury tax? Sales Tax? Gas Guzzler? Registration? Obamatax? ;} Just prepping the Mrs. for the TCO on the purchase...

Out of state registration fees.

If you click on this link to the DMV website, it will help you calculate your fees. https://mv.dmv.ca.gov/FeeCalculatorW...esidentForm.do After you fill it out, make sure you take a copy with you when you register your vehicle. I asked why the discrepency. He said that a luxury tax of $3,000 was automatically added and did not apply. I paid what was on the online fee calculator. I had $10,000 in the bank before I went. You'll need more than that for an F430 because of the 8% sales tax and registration. Everything is based on what county you live in and the sales price of the vehicle. I hope this is helpful and I'll see you on the road in your F430.

Check out the exemption from the sales tax, if you keep the car out of California (used to be for 90 days, but check that) and use it out of state. A good way to save money. Oregon or other no sales tax state would be where you would register it.

Luxury tax?

Thanks F1.360.LOVER.

Whoah - nearly 10.5%!!! I guess this is how the state of CA recuperates from near bankruptcy! Question (sorry to be so thick headed)... so did you end up paying the $3k luxury tax too? The DMV link did not indicate a luxury tax for my car... but it sounds like your DMV rep tried to work it from you.

Hi 2000YELLOW360,

So - you would have to register the car in one of those states (OR, NV, etc.), right? ... And then use the car in that state for at least 90 days per year? Or am I missing something?

Art / 2000Yellow360 would know better but IIRC the car must be out of state/CA > six months to qualify. they are cracking down on these registrations and really hammering the fees: Yes, CA is funding the budget on cars more than what swept Arnie into office. He even raised fees on reg. when that was one of his 'read my lips' promisses. My 456, noting on my board right now went up $200 this year alone for same valued car.

ANDREW, you might know this one.

Look out

Oregon and California exchange information on high end cars and motor homes, have for a number of years. They check Oregon registration information against California drivers lic. information, have been doing it for over 20 years.
