    After a year of lurking on the forums and about a half-dozen test drives, I finally pulled the trigger this afternoon. I haven't been this excited about a purchase in a long time. Now, the waiting game that most of you are all too familiar with!

    Congrats! You will love it. I will have to admit that the wait is somewhat grueling. Worth it in the end though!

    You probably won't sleep the night before you pick it up...

    Welcome to the daylight post-lurker life. :smile:

    I do find it gently amusing how impatient current reservation holders get, when of us in the vanguard waited three years!

    Yeah. I would be impatient too but it is funny how zen like you get after waiting three years for the car. Another month is not a big deal after that.

    Congrats on the car MachoTiger!

    Sweet specs!!! Welcome, its been six months since I picked mine up and I still get excited every morning when I get up to leave for work because I get to drive it. Although I have stopped driving ten miles to get bread, the thrill of ownership is great.
