OTV and KDV - Buying a car in Turkey??? (Istanbul)

Like many things, I am trying to find someone who has experience purchasing a new or used car as a foreigner. It is my understanding that we are entitled to waive the taxes and get a "blue plate"... can someone please shed some light on this process, is it worth the hassle? is is difficult to sell the car later on and find another eligible foreigner for the transfer? I also hear that you are supposed to freeze the money in a bank account while you own it so I am not sure what is the benefit at that point... any comments are appreciated.
