      Hm, "if" and "would" doesn't work together by the way.
      "If you like to buy..." would be more appropriate actually.

        "If you would like to buy..." is the correct English way.

          What? How is that more appropriate? That's improper English.

            I think it works best as it is.

            For example.

            "I like to buy the German version of vBulletin. I do all the time"

            or

            "I would like to buy the German version of vBulletin. I shall do so right away"

            Take your pick.

              Well, both sides are right. Initially (!), it wasn't proper english, read up in your english books if you forgot. However, as I have been told by a friend of mine, the Americans etc. enjoy "stretching" those rules, so it became correct.

              And CeleronXT: nope, that is correct english.

                Have you thought of mediating the U.S. / Iraqi dispute?

                  "If you like to buy..."

                  That is not the proper way, but you can say "If you'd like to buy..."

                  then that'll make sense.

                    I think we're going in circles here.

                    if you'd = if you would
