    For me it was a 1992 Toyota Camry XLE. I was doing my six month stay in New Zealand wanted to have a new car when I came back for my six months in California. I knew exactly what I wanted and what I wanted to pay.
    I negotiated the price via email with a dealer in Los Angeles and picked the car up at the Sacramento Airport upon my arrival back to California.

    My Current Car!! Well I didn't pay for it online, but I 'bought it'' online. Had to travel half way across the country to pay for it and collect it but it was worth it...

    Respect! If my memory doesn't play me false, the most expensive item I bought and paid for online was less than $1,000 e.g. a notebook, lawn mower and furniture. Guess I'd think twice about more expensive products or items let alone buying a car.

    A twin size mattress from JC Penney for a vintage bed.

    It's always a bit dodgy buying mattresses online, unless you already know the brand .. !!:)

    Yes, I was hesitant but for the purpose it turned out being pretty nice.

    @Lon Tanner I always liked the Camry but the price was a bit on the high side. So I had a Carina station wagon which was OK as well.

    I guess the most expensive purchase would have been a computer, or large flat screen TV. Most high-dollar purchases I want to see and evaluate before buying.

    I bought a silver ottoman from Amazon. Not gray, but a soft silver leather. I don't let myself or anyone actually use it, but it makes me smile everytime I look at it.
