New Wheels

So, yeah: I took the plunge and bought a new car over the weekend.

It looks essentially like this:

And I'm excited about little things like being able to control the stereo via buttons on the steering wheel. Oh, and being able to plug my MP3 player directly into the sound system. First, though, I'm going to get the most out of my free six months of satellite radio.

I'm not too jazzed about having the gearshift in the center console, but apparently they're all like that these days.

Now I'm trying to decide if I want some kind of clever vanity plates or just standard-issue ones.

    Cool. Are you going to drive with a seat belt now?

  2. Ha! The seatbelt chime on this one is slightly less annoying, but apparently I've been sufficiently brainwashed, because it's become a --gasp!--habit.
