*sigh*

do an extensive test drive, make sure you're not buying something that's going to spend more time at the dealer than in your possession. ( like mine is after a month of ownership.)

great price man! im sure you will fall in love with this car... FBP is great

driving from chicago to florida is a long trip... i would definitely recommend you do two things for that trip

1) buy blue painters tape and make a bra... it doesnt damage paint and it will protect your paint from chips.... do your front bumper, lower hood, etc

2) its not good to break in your car by just having the RPMs at 2700 in 6th gear for 600 miles.... i would try and vary your RPMs once in awhile


and unlikie orbit, i love my car and have had no problems... so dont get discouraged by his post

'08? Maybe the '08 paint is better than the '07 paint, which depending on it can bum you out? I'm trying to picture what Shutter is talking about, is he saying to drive around with painters tape on your car? To each his own.
