    Re: When you have approved my loan application, I will buy a car.

    All 4 are correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    2 & 4 are also correct because 'the simple present is used ... to express future time, after some conjunctions: after, when, before, as soon as, until'── quoted from http://www.edufind.com/english/gramm...ent_simple.php
