    Yep, they told me I could have had a shipper literally take it across state lines and then I could drive it home to TX. Dumbest thing I've ever heard. Just bought a vehicle in Kansas and another in Alabama over the last couple months. No such stipulation in either state.

    I didn't have to repay taxes when I got to TX, but CA's taxes were higher so I was out that money. The tax office here told me I should not have been required to pay taxes there.

    Afaik there is no "estimate" for registration. Never seen that. Though California dealers do seem to be some of the worst. When I bought my e53 4.8is there they made me pay CA taxes to be able to drive it off the lot even though the vehicle would never be registered in CA.

    Weird, as far as I know there is no estimate of titling a vehicle in CA. It's a set formula, available on the CA DMV website. Heck it'll even include back fees if you type in the tag and VIN. The car should have come with plates if it was used, unless they were passed due. Did it come from out of state? I'd ask them to send you the revised paperwork and compare it to what you originally signed.

    What does your paperwork show? Check to see if it says anything about owing the difference. If it doesn't, tell them to shove it.

    see that is what ive always thought if its roped into my financing and they did an estimate that is their fault for giving an incorrect estimate.

    The point is if the registration was more than you paid, you owe it. I’m sure there’s no guarantee from them that they know the exact amount of registration. I don’t know why you’re taking it as them trying to scam you. If you look at the registration paperwork it will say the fees, which you can compare against what you paid and then be able to know if it’s more than you paid or not.
