I just opened cars.com and it says that cars are avalible in US. So i thought maybe its a cheap and practical winter hack?? :confused:

Right now i drive 645, and wanted something more sporty but still relaxed and able to handle russian winter.

Hows the avalibility and what do you think?

as long as you don't mind driving the ugliest sports car EVER, i'd think it would be better than a 645i just because of AWD

The car is AWD and you can purchase it with a winter package that includes all season radials, so it should be a great winter car.

If you knew what cars cost here over the pond you would call it cheap as well :rolleyes: how about $320k for a 911 turbo?? :)

Yeah, but your gasoline is MUCH cheaper! :p

After driving your Moscow purchased 911 Turbo only 1,700,000 miles (2,735,884.8 kilometers), you make up that paltry $200,000 differential. :D

(based on the published price of $3.22/gal US average and $0.85/gal Moscow average... yes, I know this is just regular unleaded)
Actually its about 0.85 per liter so not much difference :p

Val, I forgot to ask last time.. what kind of business is your father involved in?
Eh what kind of question is that? :confused: same one as me :up:
