Default Need some new car advice...

So I just got stationed in Germany..got here yesterday, should have my European license in a few days..time to start shopping. I want something I can't get in the states and the first things that come to mind are obviously all the Nissan "fan boy" cars but is there anything anybody else can think of I should look into?

Pretty much ruled out getting a Miata over here since I can get them so easily back home, but looking for something early-mid 90's RWD 2dr and that's about my only criteria. Let's hear it....

Check your regs for importing cars to the US... Being Military might have some exceptions. but still. Dont want to end up having to dump a car quickly for too less of money. I know vintage cars are alot easier to import. 84 and older...

Goodluck

I've been looking into beamers, I want something '85 or older so that I can bring whatever it is back with me, they've pretty much shut down all the military loopholes from what I've been able to find so I'll have to dunp anything newer before leaving in ~2011.

Also considering looking for a really nice old Austin mini.

Audi S2 almost meets your specs. 1990/92 manufacture date screws the deal.
