Wonder how Conrad made out with getting his new cage?  Possibly he's still driving it?

Hey guys!

Yep, I got me a new Silverdammit in the garage today! She's a beauty and so far I'm loving that new car! Ah, that new car smell, it's almost intoxicating. It even made my garage smell better.   :o

The purchase process went smoothly and almost all was well. The only issue was that I told my salesman NOT to put any dealer stickers on the car and NOT to install the front license plate bracket. No stickers BUT when I walked to the front of the car to look her over, guess what? Yep, the freakin bracket was installed by one of the guys in service. I was pissed. I asked my salesman to come to the front of the car and take a look. He was pissed too, not even close to what I was though of course. What could I do? Of course I accepted the car, like I wasn't going to buy it cuz of that right?

My salesman fell all over himself giving me a bunch of swag items along with a card for a free tank of fuel to try and placate me. That helped a little.

Yes, in Illinois you're required to have a front license plate but I've been diving for years without one and never had an issue with The Man about it. The front ends of cars just look better without that bracket. I could take it off but the damage is done, two holes in the plastic bumper cover. I may see if I can find two plastic plugs to fill the holes.

I'll snap a pic or two for your enjoyment when I get a chance.

Connie gave the new comer a dirty look when I pulled in the garage. I caressed her and told her not to worry cuz she's my true love.     :-*

One funny moment for me was when the finance manager tried to sell me the extended warranty. I stopped him before he got rolling and told him that he had better give me his best price right off the bat because I really was iffy about the ext warranty company.

His best price? $1,995!

I about busted out laughing. I said come on man! I know that there's a HUGE dealer profit involved with this warranty and that he could do better than that. All of a sudden he says, "wait a minute, I may have a coupon or two that can help." He opens his desk drawer and pulls out a $500 coupon towards the purchase of the warranty. I asked him why he didn't offer that up front and he said that the forgot about it.

Right, thanks but no thanks.

You can sure tell that it's the "off season" for sport touring motorcycle riders when there are over 160 replies about a diesel station wagon.  Enjoy the new ride!
