    Well bummer! I have to say, I was a little underwhelmed with the Hondas as well. (I looked at the Accord before I bought my last Camry.) Maybe there will be another car that bowls her over. I had my heart set on a Nissan (either an Altima or Maxima) until I started noticing the new Hyundai's and then it was like "How YOU doin'?" (in my best Joey voice) :D

    My buddy just picked up a Golf TDI because he had a 2002 GTI with a built motor and it didn't make sense to drive it on the street anymore. He gets about 58 MPG - its insane.

    Yep. Those things are the ultimate fuel misers.

    That made me LOL and get strange looks from my office neighbors. They're used to me saying that since I'm the only Northerner around here.

    As far as the car, it worked out for the best. One one hand we were like, "this is a unique opportunity to have a new car for an extremely low payment for a short period of time" and on the other hand we were like, "WTF are we thinking?! Do we really want another car payment just a few months after getting rid of them?" Since the car was underwhelming, the latter choice was the best. What really scared us was the fact we made a smart, mature choice! We must be getting old... :rolleyes:

    Nah.....moments of maturity occasionally slip through for all of us. The trick is to balance it with 2 not so mature moments. :D

    This. So badly. I have a 2011 GTI. Greatest car I've ever driven, and one of the most practical while being delightful to drive.

    Ditto! Great pics, BB. One of my favorite places I've ever been.

    That is my sincerest fear, and the only reason I hadn't applied there before. :p

    Just worry about selling the customer the right phone, you'll be fine. For some folks the iPhone is right. I haven't met one yet, but they must be out there.:D

    Eventually, yes. Some LED Taillights, H&R Springs, and maybe Stage 2. About a year away, but I can't wait :D

    You can get phones early ;)

    I've met 2!!:D
    And one I actually told to get an iPhone because of her technological deficiency in understanding more than the absolute minimum required.

    Not holding my breath on any replies, but thank you. :) Perhaps I can be the insider source for our next big Nexus pre-release thread. XP
