    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    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).
