Well I made a comment about that in Matt'* thread (whoopsie) but I'll say it again here.
Morty, I know you had a pretty traumatic accident but the best way to get over it is to get back on the horse and go slow.
I say, buy the car before someone gets it BUT you don't have to drive it right way if you're still not comfy, you can simply keep it in the garage (if you have one) and just sit in it for a while then clean it, detail it, tweak it. Then when you think you're finally ready to give the driving a shot, the SSEi will be there for you waiting.
So I say get it or you could buy my car.
