It was a busy weekend, indeed. On Friday, two of my best friends had babies! On Saturday, I labored for a few hours and ended up with this:
I am not really a car person, but I LOVE this car. It's also exactly what I wanted, but didn't really think I would ever get because of the price. Thanks to the negotiation skills I didn't even know I had, I paid 20% less than sticker. It's the 2.0T (and T stands for Turbo, and, given my heavy right foot, that might eventually equal Trouble as well), leather, Tiptronic 6-speed automatic, heated seats (take that, winter!), Dynaudio sound, XM, sunroof. It's nice enough that I will not grumble over VW's shortsightedness at not including an auxiliary jack for my iPod.
Still working on the name.
