It was store of official dealer of Swedish SAAB cars. Driving from Kaunas I passed by numerous car stores along the highway. It was 4 May 2004, 4th day after European enlargement, and I thought over...

What to buy: Hmm... crazy idea.
Lithuania is European Union member since 1 May 2004 which means no customs (for cars, too) for citizens of EU countries and obligatory guarantee valid in each EU country. What about buying a new car in Vilnius?

A little bit far but I was told that many car models were cheaper (10 to even 30%) than in say Germany. Well, a lot of formalities, communication problems and everything (including all papers) in Lithuanian language... I am sure, but... the price...

Today, I read in a newspaper that many Germans buy new cars in... Poland. Hmm... car dealers started to rise prices in Poland, except Italian Fiat which produces cars in... my hometown Tychy.

What to pay: Generally less than in Western Europe - still and yet.
