Hamann tuned. My cousin flew out all the way from Hungary to buy it and she's getting shipped back to Europe soon.

These are just some teasers. Going to photoshop the pictures tomorrow in class since my old harddrive crashed.

Enjoy for the time being.

i probably am missing the obvious, but can you explain why it makes sense to your cousin to fly to the US to buy a german car and then bring it back to europe? i always thought the NA version are kinda gimped and shouldnt it be much easier and cheaper to get one in germany?

Its a Hamann and he got it for a good price. Plus the value of the USD has been going down. If he got it in Europe buying with Euros (since Hungary uses Forints) it would have cost more.

the dollar is really going in the crapper if all that is cheaper then getting on ein europe, just sounded excessive to fly across, have it shipped back with customs and registration and all that hassle

He got it registered in Oregon since there's no tax. Plus shipping it back is less than $2,000. Killed two birds with one stone by coming out here anyway; visit us and buy a car.

262 HUF = 1 EUR
176 HUF = 1 USD

There's the exchange rate.

Germans are buying Porsche's here and taking them back to Germany because they are much much cheaper.

There's your answer. I would have said he flew back to Hungary, not get shipped. Cousin's a dude. Sorry for the confusion. ;P


Milky, do some donuts in it, and put the video up.
I got some video of my cousin mobbin down a street, freeway runs, and me driving it. The freeway runs were weak because he wouldn't take it over 120. Either way...too many cars on the freeway at the time. My cousin was super cautious when he was driving it, so I really couldn't do too much with the video.

I'm out in Palm Springs (2 hours east of LA on the Interstate 10). Where do you guys plan on visiting? If you're going to OC or LA I can probably drive out there and meet up with you guys. Come out to the desert though. I hate it here but outsiders seem to like it. Unfortunately she isn't here anymore. She's getting put on a boat within the next week. How long will you guys be out here for and who are you coming with?


Hey ///Milk Are you Hungarian as well? My parents and 3 older brothers were born in Hungary. Myself and my little brother are first generation Canadian.
Yep, I'm a Hungarian. Szenczi-Molnar is the name. Dad was born in Debrecen and my mom was born in Budapest. First generation American though. I wish I was born there. When was the last time you were in the motherland?

If that's what he was implying, then wow. Would I really waste 5 years of my life on a forum just to make up a story?

jameswbl: If you want I'll post up a video of me driving it. I photographed, filmed, and edited all the content I posted.
