Make sure he knows that he will have to pay taxes. My seller didn't and only sold it for $1,500 above trade in/cash out value. Unfortunately after his taxes he lost money. He tried not to pay it and to get me to pay it, but he signed the agreement so he was stuck losing money to sell me the car. I would feel sorry if he wasn't such a Prick about it. But I did get a Mindt 97 LUX M3 valued at $40k for $32.9 : )
: Here is the situation. I am getting ready to buy a used M3. The seller needs to payoff the loan before the bank will release the title (makes since). How do I register the car without a title? I live in VA and he lives in PA. Also I am paying cash for the car, but I am getting a loan to payoff my high interest student loan. My bank will not give me the check until they have the title. I do have 3 other cars that are paid for. Can anyone solve this chicken and egg mystery for us.
