Got our new car today :D.
But the really NICE thing about it is that we looked up a slightly different model when we decided for it and against the others. So the features were not as expected.
It's got, unlike the car we test-drove and which we looked up in the brochure, a rev counter (which for some reason my girlfriend would have missed) and especially ESP (electronic stability programme) and a remote for unlocking the doors. :D
Ah, yes, and there was gas in the tank.

Have fun CB.

Congrats CB.

I bought six hardback first editions in a second hand bookshop ranging from Fifth Elephant to Going Postal, :) got a discount for buying in bulk :D and only ended up paying £20 for the lot :D :D :shock:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Good to hear your news, Sharlene. :D I hope you keep getting good medical news.

Sadly I can also believe the price of the Lego camper van. :roll: We've got a huge supply of Harry Potter Lego which no one has touched for years. Sigh! Sounds like it needs to be boxed up and head for the loft.

That'll teach me to trust both my typing and iPad! And now I have no idea what I really meant to type! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Edited to say: Hang on, I think I meant 'as a seller'. :shock: :lol:

Um? You do that? I decide by the sound of the engine and speed to gas pedal ratio.
Anyway, the car suggest when to change gears, anyway.

Went shopping in it today. It's a bit smaller than my previous one but I got it all into it. Since it has two doors more, putting stuff on the back seats is a lot easier, so I won't miss the larger trunk of my Fiat much. :D

Six hardcovers for 20£ is great. Congrats Mad.
