Car Notes

Bought a new car today. Well, ‘pre-enjoyed’ to use the new language (‘second hand’ in old money).

It’s a Toyota RAV4. The spec is 2005, five door, automatic, alloys, electric sunroof, radio/CD, air conditioning, electric windows, ABS, immobiliser, remote locking, roof rails, and a pile of airbags. Oh, and its blue.

Probably one of the simplest car-buying transaction I’ve ever done. The interweb has levelled the playing field. All the research can be done at home, so that you know exactly what’s out the and how much they cost. So instead of sales reps the guys on the forecourts are not much more than cashiers.

Pick it up tomorrow, and hand over our old Saxo and a small pile of cash.
