Any inquiry will negativatly effect your score.  

ALTHOUGH when dealing with major purchases, if you are looking for who offers you the best rate, they must consider all inquires within a short window as one inquiry.  This window is one week to one month, so you want to pick a few lenders, and apply to all within this time window.  I have heard that they do not remove the inquiries, but I know that they did remove one from my file here in CK.  I applied to two places and within about 6 months the inquiry from a lender I did not use is no longer showing.  In either case they made the laws regarding this so that a consumer can shop, without penalty for the best rates/terms on car and home purchases.
