New Car: must be a grown up!!

Yesterday we bought a new car - so brand spankingly new that we haven't even seen it yet!!! Its a Honda "Fit" (for those in Europe its the same as a honda "jazz"). Its a wee car but its a 5 door and the seats fold brilliantly so there is lots of space. Of course because this is America they make a HUGE deal about how much SPACE they have - like they want to say this is a small car but really it is modelled on the Doctor Who tardus and it is mammoth inside. I was extremmely amused by this - europeans know that its a wee car and that's great!!
Anyway the reason we haven't seen our purchase yet is that they are "hot" (not stolen - popular!!) and "cool" so they are all sold before they reach the showroom. We need the car asap as I'm off to New Orleans with our volkswagen and Dazza need to get to work. So we needed the next one that is coming in next week - so we ended up with the "sport" version and no choice over the colour. So what colour is it? It is SO Miami: it's white!!!
So we now have another sizable car payment - wee hee!! But we'd rather buy the car than lease it with all the worry of damage and going over the mileage and then you have to give it back with nothing to show for all your money. We know that Honda is reliable and we should be able to drive the car to its grave.
The big discussion now is whether Dazza gets the new car or me - do we add more miles to the volkswagen that already has a lot of miles on it or do I put them on the new car?
Anyway, I'm feeling very much like a grown up now having bought a car and having a proper job. I suppose its about time now I'm 30!!

Ironically most people won't buy a white car because they think it will show the dirt up- l believe the opposite to be true and tend to shy away from the black ones. l drove my old Saab 900 to death and it was white-lol. Later l got a new 9000 but it was dark green- the amount of times l had to wash it!! Now l drive an old clunker of a red thing- who cares-lol.
Hope you get the new Honda- buy a matching white hand bag and boots! lol... like l do fashion shopping- not.

I can't post yet on your blog as I've just swapped to "beta blogger" - hopefully you'll check back here. I think in Miami a white handbag and bikini are probably what is in order with a little white "toy" dog and very large white sunglasses to top it off!! :)
