The only other thing I would say is try to find a subprime lender with a rate reduction program that starts at some APR but with on time payments, the interest is reduced by 0.5% every 6 months. I started out with 21% but ended with 14.5% APR.

Heh, this isn't necessarily a "subprime" lender thing, DCU does it too actually though it's .25 every 3 months in their case.  Didn't mean much to me but it was a little entertaining to see the 5.99% -> 5.74% mail a few weeks ago.
