I appreciate all the info. I'm glad someone else feels the same as I do about the euro cars. I have been warned so many times about the parts issue, but honestly, I don't buy used parts and so when it comes to new parts almost everything is available in regards to regular service and if I need any special euro-only parts, well I guess I can wait the 2 weeks to get them. I will see the car at the end of this week for the first time and be able to get a better idea. This car is still completely euro right now-no changes whatsoever.
