            (1)    For a new motor vehicle sale or lease, the total consideration whether received in money or otherwise. However, For purposes of this subdivision, total consideration is less any credit or trade-in value allowed by the seller when a motor vehicle is taken in trade as a credit or part payment on a new motor vehicle, the credit or trade-in value allowed by the seller shall be deducted from the total consideration for the new motor vehicle to establish the purchase price and does not include any applied rebate;

trade-in value allowed by the dealer when a motor vehicle is taken in trade by the dealer as a credit or part payment on a used motor vehicle, the credit or trade-in value allowed by the dealer shall be deducted from the consideration so that the net consideration is established and does not include any applied rebate;

            (5)    For a motor vehicle manufactured by a person who registers it under the laws of this state, the amount expended for materials, labor, and other properly allocable costs of manufacture or in the absence of actual expenditures for the manufacture of a part or all of the motor vehicle, the reasonable value of the completed motor vehicle;
