    I do not want to pay an activation fee so will take all your advice when I call the cancellation department next week. Just have to find the phone number as I've put the promotional material I got recently in that same place where the lost sock goes in the dryer...never to be seen again!

    Breld, that's my car and those were the first set of rims that I had though they were the 16" ones instead of the 17" ones that I've got now. My new ones are 17" ones that came off a Jetta they had for sale...they had given me a choice of 2 different Jetta wheels. The ones I really wanted are in the brochure. Contacted corporate about getting me the wheels I really want but they've basically ignored me so will just keep what I've got now. The car does look good though!!

    Test drove both the Jetta and the Golf SE after work today and even brought the Jetta by the house for the garage test, it fit but just barely. The Golf SE with the roof was a hoot to drive especially in Sport mode, drove better than the wife's A3 if you can believe that but think it's lighter to be honest. As we stand now, I got them down to $10.5 plus my Tucson and they'd swap out the 17" diesel alloys for the 17" ones that came on the SE. All in all, not to bad of a deal to finally get into something I'd really love...I mean wow, it accelerated so great I was speechless! The wife...well, she says "do what you want" but I could tell she wants me to keep what I have. She did mention that I had put the amp in and those side protectors on the doors so I do have an investment here and guess she thinks I've thrown money out here. I know it ain't practical but...!
    But here's another twist to our story. She's asked me to hold off a bit and here's the kicker...she asked me if I'd want to buy her out on the A3!

    Now I know a little bit about what you guys feel like having these lux vehicles, there's something a little extra, something I can't put into words exactly but these vehicles are a step above anything we've ever owned. So much tech to learn but how fun is that! Puts a big grin on your face the minute you open the garage and see your vehicle and think, hey, we own this! Such a rush and now I want it also so the plan is to just do some test drives the next few weeks and see what's out there and how much I could get on the Tucson just in case. Still have that urge for the Lexus hybrid I coveted last year even though I couldn't do new. CPO in these lux vehicles can be almost as good as new and as good as the Tucson is, I think I want the next level now actually, crazy as that must sound. Even the wife knows that this little ute isn't something I plan to keep for a long time. Read that the new smaller Honda ute is due out real soon and it's a looker and just the right size...and not as cramped as the CT200h.
