    I might be getting a new car - eeek!

    Well, 7 months old actually. It's a RAV4 and it's about $9500 less than a brand new one so it's fantastic value with loads of extras!!

    Going to actually decide by Saturday, but I really like it - bit excited (except for the car loan part - haven't had one of those for over 15 years now).

    It's called silver pearl (so silver lol). It's a Nov 11 model AWD - it has nudge bar, driving lights, bonnet and headlight protectors, floor mats, weather shields, cargo cover and rear seat covers plus window tinting as extras. I am so impressed by the space in them nowadays! It's got blue tooth and a radio that finds the station you want when you talk to it!
    If I put all those things on a new one of the same model, I would have paid $9300 more so a great deal!!! Oh and I get the balance of the new car warranty, and I chose to purchase an additional 3 years for not that much more.

    It's here! I got it yesterday! I am sooo happy with it - I love it...just got to learn all the gizmos - bluetooth and voice recognition thingo. It's got so many places to put stuff and so many hidy holes. I can't believe how spacious it is either and so great to drive. Best decision I've made for a while! Oh what a feeling!

    I just want to drive anywhere, for the sake of driving - I know it wears off, did before, of course.
