It's about time!

Yesterday afternoon, on a whim, I texted the sales guy at the Cerritos dealer. "I take it my car isn't in yet?" His response? "It just rolled off the truck and it's beautiful!" I let out a whoop and told Brent we had to go!

I was getting thiiiiis close to compromising on what color combo I wanted. I was so fed up with Cerritos that I even went back to the Culver City dealer on Friday (the one who was going to charge $500 more, including $350 of non-essential accessories) to check one out with a different interior. I wasn't in love with the combo, but I started to convince myself that it might not be so bad.

But once I heard that the exact one I wanted had arrived, I knew that I had to have it. We made the 30-mile trek, filled out some finance paper work, then anxiously awaited the arrival of my car while they detailed it.

It's beautiful. It's much higher than my two-door sports car. I can actually drive more than one person at a time -- plenty of room for Em Dash! It drives smoothly and has tons of great features. It's going to take a little while to get used to, but I'm so very excited.

Sadly I won't be sharing exactly what car I got (a little blog paranoia on my end), but if you happen to be a Flickr friend, you should be able to see it here.

Most of all I'm happy to be done with all the drama and the headaches. It's mine, all mine!
