Oh SNAP.

Funny thing is, I was out to dinner with some friends last night and they were playing every one of those commercials all night long. I haven't seen those for months, and then they're all on in one night. It'* a sign -- I unpimped the Bonneville and ended up with a Jetta.

Hey nice grab there Jay! MPG'* will be better, but how about the ride quality? No leather or power passenger seat either!! Glad you got a sunroof too.
40 MPG with gas under $1.90/gallon =

3 pedals are better than 2.... but not in trucks.

thanks Marty the lack of leather was a plus, to be honest -- i got SO tired of the cold leather in the winter and my legs sticking to it in the summer. I think the cloth will suit me much better. Although the lack of power seats isn't too bad, the lack of any room for back seat passengers is proving to be an issue.

it has a bit of a misfire when it'* cold for the first minute or so, i'll have to dig into that this weekend when i do a wheel bearing too.
