What is the purchase price of the same car in the US? Depending on the car, it can be a hassel but in some cases it is cheaper to buy a car in Germany and ship it to the US.I have to do some hagling but I wouldn't buy it unless it is cheaper than the stateside costs. Also just a note shipping to the states is free for me. (we were tax free this year so the rest of you taxpayers pick up our tab.) Parting with that much cash is an issue. For the past couple years I have been considering buying a car but I have been unable to part with the cash. It remains a test of need and want. I will not buy a car until I am willing to spend the cash.I know I feel the pain with you there and it is an issue for me as well I like looking at my nicely padded accounts. I really have to see if I can talk the wife into something a little less, maybe a Passat.You did not state what interest rate you would be paying for the financing. The higher the rate, the less attractive it is.Sorry that was silly of me the opportunity cost of the loan will be between 1.75 and 2.15 percent I can get a loan for between 3.5 and 4.15 percent.Ben
