    Lovely, but too bad it's €72.960, which is $93.400. Where did you find this car for $41k? Was it second hand with 100K miles on it or someting?

    Sounds like it's still the 2007 infiniti G35 sedan - basically a BMW 5series for a lot cheaper and a lot faster...

    Been reading up on Infinity a little and it seems they come to Europe in 2008. Can't wait so long. Indeed it offers great value for the money, but it's not really an option. Too much hassle and warranty issues to get one from the US.

    Seems like I was looking at the the all road Quattro. The "normal" Quattro 3.2FSI Triptronic is still 54k Euro here though. It's above our budget. As I said Dutch prices are really ridiculous.

    As far as I have understood, when you import a car in the EU, even from another EU country, you have to pay taxes and what not, according to the laws of your own country... It's not like hardware

    Yes you are right, but thats not the point. Cars overall are cheapest in Germany. Especially Merc's. So instead of buying one in your own country you could buy it in another and at least get it a little cheaper.
    My dad did it once and saved 15K$ on it ^^

    I give it 10k more miles.

    Oh and Subaru Impreza WRX. Auto (in a car you are kinda buying for performace) is for lazy bastards.

    Nothing wrong with being too lazy to shift though. Some people just don't like to do it on the daily commute. Depending where you live you can be shifting a lot, and some cars are more comfortable than others with regards to shifter placement, height, smoothness, etc.

    That's very interesting. Do you happen to know if your dad is able to claim warranty on local Merc dealers/garages?

    This the current list of contenders:

    Mercedes A200 Turbo
    New Mini Cooper S (my mom loves this car and it's fast)
    New Civic (type-R?)
    VW Golf GTI/R32
    New Ibiza or Altea (XL)
    Audi A4 Quattro (maybe, if we can get a good price in Germany)

    Sorry guys, no Impreza, RX8 or other sports cars. Also the new BMW 3 series isn't an option. It's expensive and it doesn't look as good as the old model. The BMW 1 series is kinda nice looking, but it isn't very good value for the money.

    Anyone knows if Mercedes and other brand's warranties cover chip tuning? I guess not, but I still like to know for sure.

    Bit juicy though but well worth it.
    RX-8's are awful for reliability. Plus, rotaries are the most finicky engine I've ever seen(I work at a mazda dealer, we get in an average of 2-3 a week that need an engine swap).

    Yeah but if you want to drive quickly you need to buy a pretty expensive car for the gearbox to keep up.

    I know the car, and its too fat. Every generation the Golf just gets fatter. Take this engine and drivetrain, put it in the body of a Mark 2 GTi Golf and we'll talk.

    He didnt have to claim, he got one year warranty at any Mercedes dealer in
    Germany. Personally I wouldnt have it anywhere else, "Germany ftw, Ordnung must zein".

    I live in holland too so im used with those prices.. And I also know a thing or 2 about cars..

    Some other nice cars for that price are:
    Volvo S60 - Quality all the way.. Get a T5 or so.. theyre fast
    BMW 325I - Also quite fast
    Saab 93 aero - V6 turbo ^^

    And about the warenty.. You can let ur audi be chipped true the dealer since abt is part of audi afaik. And also at most car tuners theyll give u a 3 year warenty..
