The ED savings has little to do with taxes. Import tax is 2.5% and is not affected by new/used, just declared value. The savings to BMW is mainly in the dealer incentive program. EU cars don't count towards the CSI program or towards the incentive for units sold. That's a pretty significant amount. Also, BMW runs the long term numbers and customers that do one EU delivery on average will stay more loyal to the brand over their lifetime and purchase more BMW's than customers that don't do the program.
