    I agree most of the euro cars I hope never make it here many of them are just 2003 Yugos. Peugeot and Opel and those type cars have their own market and have it flooded over there just as we have our el cheepo cars here festiva, fiesta, geo, omni.

    yep Im thought about buying a M series over in Gremany and having it shipped back. Many many military guys have done this. BMWs and Mercedes over there are much cheaper and even after shipping you are still way ahead compared to buying one here.

    MB,BMW and Audi among others have European delivery programs that can save you alot of money. Check out their websites its pretty cool...you take delivery of your US spec car in germany and drive around europe for a few days then drop your car off and they ship it back to the us...you can save almost enough money to make the trip free and dont worry insurance is part of the deal...check out MB's program:

    ive talked to a couple people that have done it and although you can do it cheap, i guess depending on what you do in europe it can get pricey. Some of the itineraries are pretty expensive, but if you made your own arrangements with cheaper hotels and such you can get it down where the trip would be free, plus getting to take your new car on the autobahn would be pretty cool
