    @sb55, the quote button is still broken for IE users.

    Hey @iluvmysephia1, you'll enjoy this.

    We've been bugging the dealer to give us some numbers on that Exclaim they were cleaning up yesterday. I had a bunch of errands today so popped in the Kia dealer around 1 pm to verify that it did have all the packages we wanted.

    It was sold a half hour before I got there. :D

    Good thing I only drove about 10 miles there. I did get to look at it and see the color combo and while it's not that nice Caribbean blue that you can't get in the US version of the Exclaim, the off white was nice enough.

    And I got the numbers they had worked up p $26,150 plus TTL ($1,000) which was about $550 more than my number. Not bad.

    There next batch will be Plus's with special colors and stuff so one of those could work, but I think we'll expand our search a bit.

    No worries though, there won't be enough lawyers around to sue the ones that are left standing. :D

    >you don't like the Scion iA? Is it the big 'ole gaping maw in front?

    @iluvmysephia1, I've been driving minivans for 27 years. As long as stuff works, has decent ergonomics and is reliable and cheap enough to run, I don't much care about the exterior styling. Some of the interior stuff would bug me, like the new Prius hatch console and all that white trim in it.

    The '82 Tercel served us well, but I really like the boxiness of the Soul more, then a hatch/wagon style. So I didn't even hunt for the iA on the lot the other day.

    Besides, I wouldn't want to grab one and steal your thunder. :D

    Uber would be safer. Less risk of walking into a telephone pole while texting. ;)
