Yes Rogue, I'm jealous of those other things too...the monthly payment may be more than I can afford right now...but for that car I'd pay damn near anything.
Sorry, I meant electrochromic (light-sensitive auto dimming) It'* late..did I mention magnasteer II? And the huge *** monthly payment? 470.00 anyone?

Damn Rogue...$470 for just one of 'em? Well, hope your insurance isn't that high. How long were you able to stretch the loan out for...5 years?

Either way, I'm getting a 2000+ SSEi sooner or later...as long as I can still eat at least once a day and have electricity, I'll be happy with my car. I'm not too picky

Insurance is farily cheap about 1100 a year total for both cars and the house. You can sleep in the car and buy an inverter for your electricty
