Mike,

I know what your saying brother, we are driving an 89 525i right now. However the Audi is really for my wife, she thinks just because the thermostat went out last week and I replaced the muffler last month the car is going to fall apart.

I will have to check into the maintenance costs, and the other big thing is to make sure VW dealers will service Audis in the states, because unless your in a major metro their aren't many Audi dealers.

I know full well that land would be worth more, but you missed the part where we don't know where yet.

I also forgot to mention I am an unemployed full time student and we are still socking away 50% of all income. When I return to work early next year I plan on saving my full salary for at least 2 years.

Wow just repread that and it sounds like I already have my mind made up but I don't, I would be perfectly happy driving my beater for the next two or three years.

Ben
