            Good answer!

            I'll probably say the same. I was just looking on the norwegian web pages for car selling and BANG! there it was. I just felt the instand neeeeed, just had to buy that car. And so it was
            I've never thought that I would end up with a BMW, neither did my friends.
            As info I had to pay $36360 calculated with today's valuta (5.15 NOK to 1 USD).

              2 years on and off. 3 months and driving 7 cars when I was really looking... When you find "the one" you know. Just have your chips stacked because it will call to you.

                It took me about three years to buy the car I really wanted. I initially bought an 88 with 25K on th clock. Was never really happy with the car even though it was in such pristine condition. I sold it within 6 months. Finally the car that I wanted came up for sale. It had a bit more miles, but the car was far superior.

                  So what is it you were looking for in a car?

                    The low mileage car had some electrical issues, and I wanted something a little more aggressive looking without having to do all the work myself. So I bought this car.

                      I didn't have to wait at all. I just went to the dealer, negotiated my trade-in and drove it home. :p: As I remember, he had three in stock. Of course, it was 1989 and I thought it was damn expensive, but I have never regretted the purchase.

                      My second one was waiting for me at VSR one day - but I sold that one over the winter - to one very happy guy from New Jersey who had been looking for a clean car for a long time.
