im not sure what togo in, but i do know for BMW, in order to work as a mechanic for bmw, you have to go away for 6 months to some place south the the states to be be trained. Souds shitty to me leaving for 6 months. I know thats for bmw, could be others too, not sure. My neighbor told me that who was looking to be an auto mechanic, he ons an autobody shop now though.

yeah im thinking i want to open my own business. so im kind of leaning towards audi. because as far as i know there is only one certified audi shop(dealer) in montana. and i want to go back there. believe it or not there are a lot of audis in mt. so if you need work and dont live around bozeman you have to have your car towed hundreds of miles. but im also liking the nissan program because you do infiniti too, and nissan always seems to be on the cutting edge of tech. at least ive got some time to figure it out. i have to wait for gf to finish school first and thats a lil while away. thanks again for your input!

I'd go Nissan b/c they make awesome cars! I'm sorry I don't have first hand info, but I'd go for a dealer that doesn't really have a bad rep and makes cars that are affordable for the people (just b/c so many of the expensive auto. is so low on jobs atm). I like bmws, but they're too complicated and it's $80 for frickin windshield wipers. I'd never buy one! Audi's are nice too though.... And VWs.... Haha.
