yeah pics!!!


I have included a Mazda Astina and a Mazda Astina GT on my wishlist. I'm actually swaying towards these actually. Skyline adn Silvia are just a bit tooo douchebag, and most of the old and cheap ones have been abused.

Hey guys I guess our family has fallen victim to the credit crunch, whatever that means. Last year we bought a 2008 530i (F/L) for I around $160K incl. tax and financed $80K of it but need to pay $107K due to TAX (I had no idea about this until a few days ago)! So we're looking to sell the BMW and go for something like a Audi A4 1.8L FSI (53K base w/o options) and MAYBE another car for my brother who has his learner's permit, aka. L plates (He drove the BMW in an isolated place recently and he was surprisingly good at it!). Now I'm left thinking maybe we should have kept the good ol' 2004 318i... at least it had real leather lol~

What we want to know is if it is possible to get the dealer to shift the loan to another person and give them the car... if you get what I mean, so we can be free of the monthly bills and get a cheaper car... or maybe 2~ really hope 2 so maybe I can drive it in 2 years when I turn 16!

It would be a shame to see the 530i go but I guess its "just a car" as mortals say JOKING!!! Don't panic I love cars too! We filled it with 95-98 octane all the time and it was fun except when the iDrive died and scratched it recently (getting repainted now :/ ).

The A4 is what we are looking at right now... smaller for sure but I wouldn't mind an excellent interior for once :). The 530i's interior looked like someone designed half of it but CBF to finish it... my opinion~

Yeah but please answer that question (in bold) if you know the answer, even if you don't live in Australia~

EDIT: Audi is more tempting as they won't introduce the "new" Luxury Car Tax (33%) until August 1, so its the ol' 25% until then.

Are the dealer and the lender the same agency? If not, then speak with the LENDER and leave the dealer out of the mix.

Yes we got BMW Finance from Canterbury BMW.

EDIT: OK so my mom and I are going to Audi Five Dock in a few hours to have a look at what is available... they recently built a "terminal style" building and sell Audi R8s!!!!!
