Well, actually, technically it's "N", as I don't have it until it arrives from the garage in Wokingham. We went to the garage this morning, but they only have one Fiesta left - it was silver, a colour I do not want, and had an alarm, so it cost more. I said "mm, no, I think not", so the salesman ran off (well, walked casually - he was not feeling the pressure to do sales, even though it's almost the end of the month!), searched around their other branches to find one in a colour I liked.

He came back with one - this one, which you may remember from such LJ posts as this one, my first post wherein I said I'd found The Car I wanted. Ironic, no?

So in the end, I have got the very car I wanted in the first place :) This one doesn't actually have the bluetooth thing, but my phone isn't bluetooth anyway, and the idea of voice-controlling my CD player is just bizarre, so it doesn't make any difference to me.

It's all very awesome though :) I'm totally scared about driving it home when it arrives, which will be in about a week or so. But it's my own car. My very own. Awesome! :)

Brilliant! A brand new car! I thought I was lucky getting a car that was only 5 years old as my first car!

Have you been out by yourself yet since you passed?

I know, I'm terribly spoiled. Everyone who had to pay for their own cars is going to hate me forever *g* I started out looking at the used ones, but somehow we ended up in the new car showroom and never managed to leave. It was on special offer too, so it's not that much more than one that's a year or so old, and my mother seemed to want me to have a relatively new one. So - can't complain, eh? :)

I'm not insured for anyone else's cars, so I haven't driven at all since my test. I don't think I'll get to until I go to the garage to pick up my car. Eek! But fortunately the garage is on and around the roads I learned to drive on, so I'm fairly familiar with the area and should be okay to navigate myself home while also squeaking a lot about driving alone.

I went to Farnborough, but my car (my car!!!) is in Wokingham at the moment. They're bringing it over to the Farnborough garage so I can pick it up. But it's all still relatively near ;)

But also, I probably drove past it this afternoon! Oooh! :D:D

Looks like a nice car.

Good luck with it.

One day I should learn to drive.

If I can learn to drive, anyone can. I highly recommend it. It's bad for the environment, sadly, but it makes life so much easier.
