      Thanks man!

      I've found a few on the economy, but I've never bought from a German. How does the process work for getting a German registered car onto the USAEUR system?

      They give you the registration and a bill of sale. Just take it to the registry office and it's all the same. My purchase went easy.

      So they don't need to be there at the registration office for the transfer? That would be great, because i've been looking at some vehicles a few hours away.

      Just had a thought, what if the car is stolen or something like that? I just think that buying a car from a local should be a bit more complicated than this. Also, does the same thing work for a vehicle from another country like Belgium or Luxemburg?

      unsure and unsure.

      if you got a few hours to spend standing in line, go up to vehicle regs and inquire. It was really easy for me, and something that caught my eye was the guy selling the car was not the same as the name on the title, but the german at vehicle regs says it happens like that all the time.

      Does anyone know of a KBB.com or edmunds.com German equivelent used car pricing website?

      I want to make sure I'm not getting ripped off on the T4 that I'm buying. Please let me know, I've googled, but haven't had much luck. Thanks!

      http://www.schwacke.de/, but it ain't free, or you can go to your insurance company with a copy of the German registration (fahrzeugbrief or kbreif) they'll do it for free, but will need current mileage as well.

      man, I can't find any decent vans here, I've been looking between the 5-8 thousand Euro range, and they are either 10-15 years old, or have almost 300K kms, or both! smh...

      Honestly, in Europe, whoever's name is on the fahrzeugschein, owns the car. That's why you don't keep it in the glovebox.

      It's not complicated. All you need is a bill of sale and the title, both signed, and BOOM. Take it to the registration office, wait 13847561237332 hours, and the car's yours. Selling it back to a Local is a little more complicated.

      It works the same pretty much no matter what country you purchase the car in. My Cabriolet is from Austria, my buddy's 944 is from Britain, and I had a friend who bought a 1965 Cadillac from Lithuania.
